    Robotic pool cleaners

    Does anyone have experience with a robotic pool cleaner that works well?

    Need a lot more info to give you a really valid answer but the Blue Diamond remote is a good robot.

    How much do you want to spend? Do you want all the bells and whistles?
    I bought a basic unit SmartKlean Nitro. I'm happy with it.

    I have a 16'x32' inground rectangular pool with two ladders ( no stairs ). The pool is old and does not have a bottom drain. It has a liner not concrete.

    Blue Diamond non-remote would be a good selection for that pool. The remote is a heavier, 2-motor cleaner but your size pool wouldn't benefit from it much, I think.

    Duraliegh, no worries over the robot scrubbing the liner too hard?

    If the Blue Diamond is like my Blue Sapphire then there are no "scrubbers". It has two spongy rollers that drive the unit and move the debris to the vacuum area of the device.

    I've only used mine for two months but I've been very happy with it's performance.
