It comes with both, but you really want to the 1 drop-in rough filter, not the 4 snap-in rough filters. That way you can use them both at the same time.Just ordered an Active 20 from Seth at Marina
Question that i forgot to ask on the phone - I see people mentioning 2 different types of filters. Does the robot come with both or do i need to buy the fine material filter seperate?
Ahh ok - i'll probably do a run with the regular filters and then swap them out for the finer ones - thank you!!It comes with both, but you really want to the 1 drop-in rough filter, not the 4 snap-in rough filters. That way you can use them both at the same time.
I paid $719 flatHow much are those and did you have the option to buy the S200?
So far in the few months of owning mine I haven't found myself wishing I had the smart features. It spends most of its time on the floor anyway and at opening I just hit go again to do repetitive runs.For you S200/A20 owners do any of you wish you have the caddy or "smart" features in the A30i/S300i?
Trying to figure out if it makes sense for me to save the cash on the S200 for my 40x20 rectangular 9.5' pool or spend a little more for a caddy/extra features. I don't particularly need to drive the thing around with my phone and I plan on taking it out of the water after each cleaning but I am interested in the "floor only" mode on the S300i to really get the floor extra clean. But if the S200 cleans the floor just fine then that's good. I've seen people post about issues with the cords on these things...does the caddy help in prolonging it's life/getting tangly?
If it doesn’t get every bit, just hit the button again. Gone!Thanks for the replies...helped convince me to get one. I ordered a Warrior SI (the S200/A20's were out of stock for a few more weeks) from Marina yesterday. Was gonna get the SE but in a last minute impulse decided to spend the extra $50 so I could have bluetooth control....which I'm sure I'll probably only use a couple times but oh well. Margaret said the SI doesn't have all the extra cleaning modes like a 300i/30i but just the driving/scheduling ability as well as the same filter basket setup, although they can do the filter upgrade on 200/20/SE's if you want.
Decided to go with this instead of a more expensive one right now because I'm really interested in the IO model with it's floor mapping but since that seems to be over a year away I thought I'd get this as a stopgap. Crossing my fingers that it does a really good job though so I don't have the need to upgrade.
Gonna store it in a plastic deckbox next to my pool so once I see and measure the brush layout I'll build a little stand for it so it's not resting on the brushes. I'll install some sort of cord holding setup too to keep it nice and orderly.
The outlet I'm planning on using is about 12' from the 20' side on the shallow end so hopefully the cord is long enough to get everything.... although there is an outlet about 15' from the 40' side near the deep end so I guess if it can't clean everything plugged into one spot I can alternate where I plug it in so it's getting the total area over a couple cleanings.
Main worry is I've got the main drain as well as three floor returns so I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't get stuck...or if it does that it can free itself after a few minutes.
Excited for it to get here (ordered in the morning and Marina shipped it out the same day!) because I manually vacuumed for the first time today and I would definitely like to do that as few times as possible going forward.
