    Aquabot 4WD

    Middle of "winter" here in Texas. Have had a solar cover on for past 2 months or so. I sweep the cover with my pool brush at least once a week and place debris in dust pan or into Poolskim and empty Poolskim weekly. Decided to run my Aquabot yesterday (1st time in 2 months), thinking there may be a few leaves that dropped around the edges. Wow, this thing is a pool cleaner's dream! Still going strong!



    And run#2 and bottom is clean.

    Hey just curious, does that one have fine filters too? Ones for fine dirt and dust? Mine (Dolphin) has those type as well as ones that are similar to a car air filter for fine stuff.

    Yes, very fine. Mfg sent me this extra set to test out. The courser ones climb the walls better, but I like these since they get more silt, and they don't climb walls much.

    As my baskets are totally white, are those with the yellow sides the 'fine' ones?

    Wow, that's a lot of stuff to get under the cover!

    I have the same question as above; do you know if the standard is "yellow = fine"? I just got a Breeze 4wd and it is having a lot of trouble getting up the slope on the bottom of my pool, so it's not cleaning the shallow end.

    Yellow =fine. White =normal (goes up slopes easier). Neither should have a problem going up deep to shallow slope.
