    Nautilus robot or zodiac G3 pressure cleaner?

    Trying to decide whether to get a nautilus robotic cleaner or another zodiac for half the price. Had the zodiac for years and it mostly did its job even though it had intermittent problems. It finally quit working though. The nautilus seems to be just as well reviewed even though it is much more expensive, maybe it might be a bit more trouble free than the zodiac?

    My main concern is can I leave the nautilus in the pool? We left the zodiac in all the time and often had it running all day. Can the nautilus at least handle and not break with the same laziness?

    How about the nautilus plus is it worth it, or are there even better pool cleaners out there?

    Well, generally, you pay for cleaning power but you don't tell us anything about your pool so we don't know how much cleaning power ($$$) to suggest.

    A big majority of the technology in Pool Cleaners seems to be diverting to robots. The public seems to be speaking and they prefer robots.

    We have watched this trend for several years. Robots are NOT cheap by any stretch but they seem to be winning the battle of public approval.

    A robot for your size pool might fall in a $600 - $800 dollar range and you can get good performance from it.
