    New Solar-Breeze questions

    They came out with a new version this spring with a few improvements. I think it’s called the NX2. Still, I’ve had stuck sticks for days (or longer when it happened when we were out of town) with no lasting damage, even on the NX.

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    Huh...I've had mine for quite a bit longer and have had the opposite experience. It's been very good even with large and small debris. When I have had clicking, it's been due to sticks and such stuck in front turbine because it's picking up such large stuff sometimes they jut out over the front...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    I would call Solar Breeze and talk to them. Their customer service is very good. I had a similar problem and had to increase my water level slightly so that the Solar Breeze was definitely FLOATING over the steps, not scraping on them. I had to not increase the water level too much or it would...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    Great video! It looks as though it's trying to turn (it does turn at walls automatically in my pool) but the geometry of the curve on that corner is confusing it. Call company and send video to them. They'll give a suggestion. Don't attach anything to the Breeze itself before contacting them...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    I had issues with the SolarBreeze not running for very long when I first got it last spring. I called tech support and they had me run some simple diagnostics and had me send some videos of the unit in action and they were able to determine that I had a faulty unit which wasn't charging properly...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    tcat: It would probably be best to call customer service at the manufacturer to double check some of this. They were really helpful to me when I first got the Breeze. I would think that 10 gallons would be about 10 Breeze dumps. The Breeze will stop running if it is overfull if the turbines...

    Should I really get oversized cell? v. Hayward

    Honestly, my cell is slightly undersized for my pool. I've had it for about 11 years now with I believe 2 cell replacements during that time. I now supplement with HASA liquid chlorine in June and July and after big parties and such and the pool looks great and the chemistry is good.

    Leaf + tree debris problem? Cheaper options?

    I have the same issue and have had adequate results from The Pool Cleaner suction cleaner alone running whenever my filter pump is on. I just leave it in the pool all the time. I only pull it out for parties. Maintenance has been minimal. In heavy leaf-drop times, I have to empty the inline leaf...

    Solarr-Breeze NX--just pre-ordered... Tell me I didn't make a huge mistake

    I have had my Solar-Breeze NX since this past spring. I got it early because I jumped in on crowdfunding. I don't think you made a mistake AT ALL. I have a large (37,000 gallon) pool in an odd shape. I have a cleaner with a floating hose. I decided to not make any modifications to my pool and...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    That's similar to what my first defective Breeze did. It didn't get out of hunt for sun until late morning and was done by 6 with sun still shining obliquely on the pool. You could call them. They had me run through some troubleshooting steps and I also sent videos. In Vegas it should be running...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    Mine gets stuck there too sometimes but always works free. You may have a defective solar-breeze, especially if it won't run on an overcast day. I had a defective one and the replacement is much better. That being said, I'm not sure if the Breeze is working free due to reverse action or if my...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    My original machine was going into reverse every 20 seconds or so and didn't hold charge. It was defective. The new one is great. It runs from about 7AM until well past midnight. It even runs on overcast days. Some of the floating debris in my pool (neighbor's locust tree flowers?) does clog the...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    I have had the replacement Solar Breeze NX for a few days now. It is a huge improvement. My first machine did not build or hold charge and also didn't cycle forward/reverse properly. It worked well the first day and that's it. It should work when overcast. The new one does all that and works...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    Sorry! I'm not getting email notices of replies even though that's what I've selected. It's been sunny here. My NX is not working that well. It's not really building charge as it should among other things. On sunny days, it doesn't get out of hunt until high noon (sun out for 5 hours already)...

    New Solar-Breeze questions

    It seems to be avoiding the hose today. It seems to maybe only be an issue when the pump is off at night as the hose floats more then. I am willing to try the hose weights! The debris I get many times of the year are redwood tree cones which sink almost immediately and also sand and fine grains...
