    One Day or Until Sold Out

    Woot.com has a pool cleaner on sale today only (or until they are sold out) -- I can't vouch for the product or if it is indeed a good price, but I have bought a lot of stuff off Woot and never had a problematic transaction.

    And it's an SWG at the same time. I'm guessing that's why it's on sale. Doesn't make sense. Thoughts?

    I don't have a robot now. I am wondering if I could use this to clean also reduce my pump time to save power in my existing swg pool. Thoughts?

    Looks like a solution in search of a problem.

    Looks like an easy solution to someone who might not want to spend a lot of money putting in the wiring/plumbing necessary for a typical SWCG. I would like to see a review on it, though, because it would still need to do a good job vacuuming for me to bite. I would also need to know the cost of replacement cells.

    Even if it didn't provide enough chlorine on its own, it should theoretically significantly reduce the need for bleach.

    $1835 on amazon. I was hoping to find a review, no such luck.

    mskovrinskie,
    My two cents for what is worth; I also have SWG and I don't have a robot. If I was to go this route, I have to maintain two different salt cells, one for the AutoPilot and one for this robot. AutoPilot cell is already costing an arm, the cell for the robot might cost me a leg. At the rate, I'll be swimming in circle...LOL

    The razor business model - razor handle cost next to nothing; blades cost you dearly...
    Lets go swimming! Wait, is the water 88*F?

    $310 for the replacement cell (rated for 2 yrs, 5000 hours). If it can truly provide enough chlorine output for a 40k pool, then this seems comparable to 40k stand alone SWCG replacement cells.
