I've read that robotic cleaners can save power over booster pump operation, http://www.aaffordablepoolspa.com/North ... ports.html
I have a Legend Platinum, 5 years old, needs new tires, gets stuck a lot, so I've been thinking about buying a robotic cleaner. Do they do as good a job? I like the idea of throwing it in as required, rather than my current cleaner on a daily 3 hr cycle in the pool 24/7. If it save a couple hundred $$ a year in EE bills, it'd pay for itself fairly fast. What are the best ones out there?
