    Blue Diamond or Aquabot T-2 with Pebble Tech?

    I'm new to this forum and think it's great the way everyone shares info.

    I just had my pool resurfaced with pebble tech and would like to buy a Blue Diamond
    or Aquabot T-2. My concern is the durability of the brushes on both of these products
    with the pebble tech ( rough ) surface. Is one better than the other?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    That's an excellent question but one that may not give you get a definitive answer. Someone would have to own both to give you an accurate opinion.

    I have the blue diamond and can tell you what I know. It has pretty durable outside "drive" treads that I think would be fine. Whether they would hold up better than the T-2 I am not sure.

    Thanks Dave,

    I'm hoping there are pebble tech pool owners who have
    one of these machines that will share their experiences with me.

    I had both of these cleaners, a Blue Diamond Remote and a Turbo T4,I presently have an Aquabot Viva. The Blue Diamond comes with PVA foam brushes, the Turbo series comes with molded rubber brushes , more suitable for concrete finishes. I'm assuming pebble tech is a rougher finish, if so I think you'd be better off with molded rubber brushes. The Viva is available in both brushes (online).

    Thanks for your reply. Last week I purchased the Blue Diamond R/C because they had the best warranty. I think the unit does an excellent job cleaning and time will tell how well the PVA foam brushes stand up to the pebble tech surface.
    Thanks!

    I didn't realize that there may be concern about the PVA brushes on concrete. I don't remember reading anywhere about PVA may be better suited for vinyl pools. I too ordered the Blue Diamond and hope that my gunite pool doesn't wear out the brushes sooner than if they were moulded rubber that the Aquabots use.
