    Very Specific Criteria for a Robot - help

    been searching like crazy, figured my detailed requirements might help with some suggestions.


    1) in ground fiberglass pool, SHARP Walls. - know a robot will not climb them.
    2) not giant pool (see specs)
    3) JUST FLOOR cleaner, no wall climbing, etc. due to item 1
    4) has a warranty from the MFG
    5) can be bought online
    6) robot of course, vs suction, etc.
    7) ability to filter pretty fine dirt
    8) can work under a solar cover

    of course if I missed something big just yell !

    Do you have a deep end or is the pool all one depth?

    It does...below is what it looks like. The deep end is just about 6', with a gradual slope to about 4 '

    Funny you mention that I was looking at the jet turbo t... But It got some bad reviews on Amazon and it made me a bit nervous
