    Aquabot PRO IG

    Anyone know anything about it??? I cant find ANY reviews. A friend of mine has a Aquabot PRO IG new one in box that came with his newly purchased house. Wondering if its worth buying at a reasonable cost?

    Sorry, maybe it's an older model. I can't find one on the website. I might steer clear if it's discontinued unless its really cheap. Maybe someone else can weigh in with experience.

    Yea, was thinking that. It does have pva brushes though, which i hear work well on vinyl lined pools. My other option is a brand new Aquabot breeze4wd for a very good price.I dont want to spend more than $600, Ugh, decisions, decisions.

    A quick Google brings it up. Refurbished for 689. Looks to be a decent cleaner. Appears to be the blue pearl.

    Good luck and enjoy it. I do think this one would have been a much better cleaner unfortunately.

    Why??? Based on reviews here, the 4wd works well, and seems reliable. Any info I found on the pro IG had many reliability issues.

    Because it looks like a rebadged blue pearl cleaner and they are nice cleaners. Plus I'm not sure how those other style bots really perform. I've seen mixed reviews while the tried and true style of robot works.
