    solar breeze

    hey has anyone ever used a solar breeze pool cleaner or have any thoughts and/or opinions on them?
    they are pretty pricey at around $500 or so
    seems like a roomba for pools. we actually had a roomba vacuum cleaning robot in our house for a while and it was kinda lame. my guess is one in the pool would be the same. but at least it would use any electricity.

    Re: solar breeze

    We sold quite a few of these about 5 years ago, however we had quite a few issues with the solar cells not charging properly so we stopped carrying them. The manufacture has stated that they have redesigned the solar cells and the new units do not have this issue, however we never sold them again after the first go around so I cannot say weather or not the new units are performing any better.

    If you add a weir (with spring loaded feet to hold it in place), the skimmer should work fine.

    Re: solar breeze

    I actually have the weir for it. every pool builder has told me to replace it due to upgrades in technology.
    a door with a flap is all I see...
