    All you robot lovers

    Do you leave it in all the time? How often do you run it?

    What do you think of the Prowler?

    Don't have any idea about it. I leave my Dolphin robot in a lot. Depending on weather (storms etc.) I run him 2-4 times a week. Usually leave him in days at a time, or out for a cleaning of filters. Once in a while, I will let him make a run, pull him out, clean and store. Its easier to put away when you have one on a caddy.

    Nearly all pool cleaning robots are designed to be removed from the pool when they complete their cycle.

    I use mine about once every week or two.

    We love him so much, he's almost like a pet. I say...Poor Robie, he's got a rough shift ahead, and my wife says, make him earn his keep, if he burns up we'll get another one.
