Just picked up a Rapids 4WD. My first cleaner. What was I doing messing around vacuuming by hand? This thing is nice.
Prior to purchasing I did as much research as I could, and couldn't be happier with my choice. I have a vinyl lined 16'x32' IG. I just opened it last week. I had all the big stuff skimmed out but tons on dirt on the bottom. After a couple of hours with the robot it looks awesome. My sand filter just wasn't cutting it, allowing the fine dirt to return to the pool. The aquabot is doing the job. It only climbs a foot or so vertically but honestly the dirt and debris settle on the bottom so in my opinion it's all I need it to do. A buddy has a pool company and gave me his discount. $560 plus tax. Coincidently, when I picked it up I noticed a $30 mail in rebate for Aquabot on the counter. Time to play the lottery I guess.
