So after 5 years my Aquabot T2 finally bit the dust. Transformer is gone and the pump was starting to go as well, so i'm in the market for a new one. I've done some research but there are so many cleaners out there it's almost impossible to pick one. What I've noticed is most of the lines for all brands have gone to cartridge filters instead of the bags.
My question to those that have the top loading cartridge filter type.... where does the larger debris go? With the bag, any leaves, pieces of mulch, and general crud gets deposited in the bag. However, the top loader cartridge types dont seem to have anywhere for the debris to be kept. And even if it is just stuck in the top of the unit, how do you get it out?
