Can anyone give me a take on just why we are out there spending close to a thousand dollars or more for a robotic cleaner or a SWG and the manufacturer can only give us a year warranty on most of these products? Sometimes you can find one for 2 years if your lucky and the ones that go any longer then that are usually gimmicks once you get to the fine print or pro-rated. I don't know about anyone else but when I am dropping that much cash, I would like something warranteed more then a year. Do they not trust their product to function longer then that? And those of us that live in the Northeast really get the shaft cause we are really only using the product for 3 months out of the year so if anything happens the next season, you are SOL.
