    Will "robots" climb this wall design with ledge ?

    trying to research robots, and I am not sure if any will be able to navigate up this wall all the way to the tile line ?

    I have this walking ledge all the way around, as you can see ?

    Or should I just focus on the floor models, knowing it is easy to brush the walls (plus save a ton of cash)

    Any feedback ?

    (cant post pics anymore, so this link will need to work I guess)

    How To Post Pictures

    Most robots I don't think work with vertical walls with a sharp transition as those pools look like. Also they are likely to struggle more with the smooth fiberglass surface. I do not think that many are able to climb up on steps/shelves/etc.

    Ok thanks...I used to be able to post directly, guess the new layout changed the quote limit, etc. Now I cant even use FLICKR - arghhhh...will have to dig into photobucket.

    As for the climber .... thanks, that is what I was afraid of.

    So now....the research continues. Unless someone has a non-climbing option they want to share.

    Thanks!

    You can use flickr ... we just found that Photobucket was a little easier. You just need to be sure to post the URL to the photos themselves and not a folder or webpage photo viewer ... sometimes called the "direct" link.

    As a general statement, no robot will climb those walls successfully.
