I know it seems counter-intuitive, but I'm thinking of replacing my Aquabot. It does a decent job of cleaning, but my biggest gripes;
- Hose always gets tangled, even though I switch the handle. I know this is supposed to happen, but every time I use it I need to untangle the cord. I already replaced one at $175 cause it got tangled and was ruined when the 'bot ran over and tried to eat it.
- Seems like the bag on the polaris would be easier to clean than the aquabot's canister system.
- You have to/should remove the 'bot when swimming. Its only low voltage, but still.
I like the idea of leaving the Polaris in all the time and the fact you can put them on a timer. Any one else out there like the Polaris (or other) over 'bots or is that rare? BTW, I have the plumbing for a pressure side cleaner when the pool used to have a Ray Vac.
