We have a 16' x 36' inground pool with a 6' deep end. Currently we have a Polaris 380 and, although it does a great job of cleaning up large debris it leaves a ton of dust patches throughout the pool. We have wasted a ton of water over the past two years by constantly needing to vacuum the bottom to get it cleaned. And with water restrictions now becoming the norm in our area, it has gotten expensive just to clean our pool.
That being said, I have convinced the wife to save not only money in water, but also to save me from wasting several hours a week to get our pool cleaned is to get a robot to help us out. I have read reviews of various cleaners, but now I come to the experts for advice. As stated above, its not a huge pool, but my only hold up is the fact that the floor is angled in the deep end and I am worried about choosing a cleaner that won't be able to climb the angle.
We have looked at an Aquabot and a Dolphin. I am leaning towards the Dolphin Deluxe 3 due to cost ($499), but worry if it will climb the angle and clean the deep end well. We are not looking to break the bank, just want something that will work effectively. Any advice appreciated!
