Since I can not find robotic pool cleaners in my Consumer Reports magazine I am hoping that I might be able to draw out a few posts on any personal experiences with these devices. I am considering replacing our Polaris 380 with a robotic cleaner. I have two primary factors/assumptions for considering the change; 1) it shoud clean as well or better than the Polaris 380, and 2) it should utilize less electricity in the process.
Any brands/models with good experiences, and any to avoid? I noted recommendations around a remote control in other posts. Other recommendations or considerations when purchasing a robotic cleaner?
