Looking to get a pool vac robot and have been going crazy with all the choices! I’ve left a message with Marina Pools to get some additional info but I’m sure they are very busy. A little back got s with our pool: it’s fiberglass with large tanning ledge that is about 14” deep. There are 2 deep end tiered steps/benches as well as a shallow “finger hold” ledge about 4” deep that goes all the way around the pool about 8” below the waterline. I really would like a bot that cleans the waterline and can make it up the steps to the tanning ledge, but I’m not even sure that’s possible with this setup. I know the top steps will have to be brushed as water is only a couple inches deep there. 448A9F26-BAC7-40C5-9B18-2F967493121E.jpegIf not, I’ll go with a less expensive model that can at least get the floors and walls. Anyone have a similar pool and can provide some insight? Thanks!!5C2F62A7-72BE-472B-B632-5A10093E0BE7.jpeg

I just recently bought a dolphin robot and i am very happy so far, it climbs the walls and my steps cleans the pool very well....my last vacuum was a tiger shark and was 400 more than the dolphin and wasn't nearly as good.

Heya,
Did you end up purchasing a robot cleaner? If so, which one did you go with? And does it do a good job with the tanning ledge/deck/shelf?
