    What is it? "Flash" Robo cleaner

    This was abandoned at a friends rental. Not sure what is needed to make it work, or if it can be made to work. I'm guessing I'm missing a Transformer or some sort of power box?
    Thanks for any info.

    Never heard of that one. Can you find any other identifying labels? Maybe inside of it.

    You are correct that you need a transformer ... but hard to find if we can not ID the manufacturer.

    looks similar to some of the older maytronics bots. pull the debris bag out and look inside the housing for a label there should be one there regardless of the manufacturer

    I didn't see anything on the underside, I should have taken a picture of that as well, Maybe the bag is missing, would it be an actual material bag?

    What does the bottom look like? It should have a plate or something that is removeable with a bag attached to it.

    typically either a mesh bag or screen filter if you flip it over there is usually a pair of clips or tabs holding a plate on and the screen goes inside or its a bag that just attaches to the top outlet by a tie string but there should be some type of label or molded markings or numbers on the bot

    It's a Aquabot express clone?
    The below part numbers google to aquabot. And I see a aquabot power supply matches up. But $200+?

    Yup looks like an Aquabot Xpress.

    Looks like the bottom cover and bag are missing as well. These things are not cheap ... it is $800 new. Although spending $200 for a power supply to see if it works is a bit harsh.

    Might see if you can find a local dealer to have it checked out and see if it is worth the $200-$300 in parts to get up and running.

    I think I will troll ebay for a broken aquabot with PSU, and see if I can make 1 good out of two. No dealers nearby, at least according to aquabot site. Compatible models?
