Our 24' Round AGP came with a "free" Dirt Blaster auto vacuum. However, we have Easy Step stairs installed and I was skeptical that the vacuum would find it's way around it. I was correct, it gets stuck at the stairway, but even if it could find it's way around, it messes up it's natural pattern and will never cover the whole pool. No major loss, I'm not terribly impressed with it anyway.
This all leads to my question. It's really not convenient at all to remove the stairs every time I want to clean the pool. Not only is the staircase fastened to the deck, it is now weighted down and I don't think I'd lift it out of there with any ease anyway. What type and brand of robotic cleaners would get the job done? I was looking hard at a Rover Jr., thinking if that runs in a criss cross pattern, it may just work.
Or you could tell me to just use a standard pole type and be done with it!
Thanks for any opinions!
