    Pool Rover can't get out of the deep end

    This week I found a AquaProducts Pool Rover cleaner for above ground pools for a song on Craigslist so I bought it. I tried it out tonight for the first time and the only problem is that it cannot get itself out of the deep end as the slope is very steep.

    If I give it a little tug on the cord it makes it, so my thought is that making it slightly more buoyant may allow it to tackle the slope in my pool. Has anyone done this? I am thinking of adding foam blocks inside the cover in the 4 corners of the rover. Thoughts?

    I used one of the kids old "kickboard" flotation devices. I cut it to size and used the hot glue gun to hold it in place. Works like a charm. My robot now climbs the walls like its supposed to.

    Thanks Siamese - a kick board is a great idea. Did you glue it to the top? Any chance you have a photo?
