I had posted about buying a vacuum for spot cleaning and whatnot that was like 20$ then I was looking even further and I saw they even have Roomba like automatic pool cleaners. Are they really that great and are they worth the price? We bought the Roomba for like 300$ years back and we love it and use it all the time. I am just wondering if these are as advanced and as good as that. I had a friend buy the Roomba replacement automatic grass clipper and he thoroughly hated it because it would miss patches and all kinds of stuff and it would run out of batteries before it was done.
The pool ones look like they plug in to an outlet and the cord floats and it just skims the bottom. So I am thinking it may be a very good thing. Is this going overboard or is it worth it? I was looking at a comparison guide for them and I kind of got lost since I am a new pool owner. I also have to wonder since this is a screened in area and only little things get into the pool if they are something I should use or just use a small mammal pool vac?
