    codes on an Aquabot Elite Aquacontrol

    Help. Does anyone know what the codes mean on an Aquabot Elite Aquacontrol? I plug it in and it double flashes and that’s it. I can select the different features but it will not start up. Just double flashes. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Aquabot Elite double flash on power supply

    Ok. So an update of sorts. I took the power unit inside and plugged it in. Same double flash then nothing then double flash etc. But then I let it sit a couple of days, plugged it in and it worked fine. So I put it in the pool, plugged it in, let it run no problem. It ran for about an hour then...

    Aquabot Elite double flash on power supply

    Oops. I was wrong. When I plug it in, and select the power button, I get a double flash and then it showed the 95 hour and program two (lit up) and then it would periodically double flash.

    Aquabot Elite double flash on power supply

    Hi all: I hope you all can help me. I have an Aquabot Elite that is 1 1/2 years old. It is stored indoors when not in use and inside all winter. I took it out to use this season for the first time and it powered up, and did its thing. Then the next time, I get a quick double flash and that's it...

    Aquabot Elite, Dolphin Premier or 300i (active 30i)

    I posted the original question and thought I would report back on my purchase and if I am happy etc. I ended up purchasing the Aquabot Elite. The top loading filter cartridges and the longer warranty than the 300i was the decision for me. I have a large L shaped pool (exact dimensions unsure of...

    Where do you store your Pool Cleaner?

    Well that's awfully fancy. :) Looks great, actually. I guess I won't complain. I have a caddy and roll it into the basement (which isn't far). I have no leaves but lots of dirt at the bottom of the pool due to the ridiculous winds we get. I have farmland on the back and sides of me, so it is a...

    Where do you store your Pool Cleaner?

    Hi All: Just bought a new pool cleaner (robotic one..Aquabot Elite). Anyway, I want to keep it in as good a shape as possible so I roll it outside and back inside my basement every time I use it. I am thinking a vertical deck box cabinet would be perfect to keep it near the pool. So, wondering...

    Cleaning accuracy and extra large pools

    Hi all. I have, compared to other home pools, a rather large pool. It's an L shaped 46 x 30. I had a Dolphin DX4 and thought it cleaned well until it bit the dust. Just got an aquabot elite and it seems to really scrub the pool but it is definitely missing areas. I am wondering if it's just the...

    Pressure side or robot?

    Not an expert at all, but I have had a Polaris pressure type cleaner with the booster pump as well as a Dolphin DX 4 robotic cleaner and now an Aquabot Elite (arrived today). It is amazing how much better and easier the robotic cleaners are. They have many good models starting in the 500-600...

    Aquabot Elite, Dolphin Premier or 300i (active 30i)

    Exactly! I mean, they ARE for use by water. Ugh. Good to know about this. We have a pretty big pool and wouldn't mind a new unit and to keep this as a back up. So I will get on it. I wish I knew someone locally who had the same unit so I could try their power supply. - - - Updated - - - Can I...

    Aquabot Elite, Dolphin Premier or 300i (active 30i)

    I would guess so as well except it did power the thing and move it and then stop. The troubleshooting page addressed that exact movement and said motor or something jammed. I hate to spend 200-300 on a power unit if it also needs a new motor etc. So at this point, we may play with this one and...

    Aquabot Elite, Dolphin Premier or 300i (active 30i)

    I took it to one of their authorized service dealers and they said they couldn't even work on it without starting a new dealer application form to even call them to get parts. AND they sell them! They said Maytronics is really difficult to deal with but their stuff works which is the only reason...

    Aquabot Elite, Dolphin Premier or 300i (active 30i)

    Hi all: I currently have a Dolphin DX4 that has done a great job cleaning my large L shaped pool. I have no trees within miles but lots of dust from neighboring farms and a whole lot of wind. Last summer at the end, we had a major storm and the power supply with the caddy was blown into the...
