    Keepy Krauly Shot after 2 seasons

    Hello I have Kreapy Krauly Legend pressure side pull cleaner and it appears to be shot. Wheels slip on gears, get stuck in corners, rear hose knobs worn and even the hose a litte, bag shot.

    This surprises me. Shoudl I be surprised? It seems a rebuild is quite a bit of money. A new one is about $400. So question is is two year resonable for a rebuild? If it is would I be netter off with a robot? I have seen some for about $600

    Thank you,

    Anthony

    I'm very biased toward Robots. My advice to almost anyone on a cleaner, is buy the very best Robot you can possibly afford.

    You don't give your pool size but, unless you have a small pool, a good robot is the best choice.

    I have a small pool and I wish that I had gotten a robot from day one. Not having to connect it to anything but a power supply and it just works. Even if it breaks after a year, I would be happy. I am amazed at the amount of sand that it collects and it does a great job filtering the water. Much better than my Kreepy KrAuly Lil Shark.

Hard pipe is the way to go for improved flow! Retired Lil Shark (3/15). Starite Max E Therm 333k BTU Propane Heater w/ 24 gal tank (7/15).

    Thank you for the replies. The pool is about 36 by 18. perimeter is 100 ft or so. I plan on starting to research robots.

    Thanks again,
