I have finally decided to pull the plug and buy a robot to take over my pool cleaning. Yes I would much prefer to watch a bot do the work after 4 years of manual brushing and vacuuming on weekly basis. My routine with a vinyl lined pool has been leaf raking on once or twice a week then brushing on Wednesday again on Saturday a few hours before vacuuming.
Although I expect to still need to leaf rake a little, I am interested to know if I put a Dolphin M5 in the pool twice a week, can I stop the manual brushing? Does the robot give me the same general agitation and water line cleaning as a nylon brush?
