    Anyone recommend a robotic cleaner

    I have been through 2 pool rovers in 6 years. Last one lasted 2 years now motor won't hardly turn.
    Looking at Polaris 9100, same price as rover after rebate or dolphin DX3 maybe.
    Any advice?

    Just finished drain/refill to lower CYA, kit will be here Monday. CYA is down to 45 from 110!
    According to test at pool store.
    Will be starting BBB now!

    I have a Blue Diamond that has worked great for over five years! Customer service is terrific, too!

    thanks for taking time to reply "L".
    Looks a lot like the Dolphin.
    went to buy the polaris 9100, pool store guys said 'stay away from it'. seems it turns over all the time, hence the $200 rebate
    the dolphin deluxe 3 is exclusive to leslie pool, its $699. May get one of those.

    Last year I finally hooked up the Hayward Navigator that the previous owner had left, and I find it terrific. I never vacuum my pool! Just let the robot do all the work. I can't recommend it enough.
