    New pool owner - question on pool robot for 16x32 inground

    Hi all,

    Just joined the forum and have been doing some research and answered most of it by doing searches. I have a 16x32 in ground rectangle pool and am wildly confused as to the best bang for the buck pool robot to get. I'd like to keep it in the $800 range or less if possible. Anyone have a good experience with the myriad of pool robots out there?

    Thanks in advance - Paul

    Welcome to TFP!

    The Blue Pearl is very highly recommended, though it might be a little above your price range.

    Hi, Paul,

    Welcome to the forum. I'm looking at robots, too. It's hard to find one that stands above the crowd when you can't see them in action. I've found a couple of websites who pretty much specialize in pool cleaners and I plan to listen to their advice....as always, with a grain(s) of salt.

    I've heard good stuff about it too, not locked into that price range if I can get something reliable that works well. Thanks!

    Me too, my neighbor got one of those iRobot Verro's last summer and he loves it.

    I have an iRobot Verro 600 and absolutely love it! I got it on eBay "refurbed" last year for about 1/2 off the regular price.
