I am on the fence on whether to get a robotic cleaner or not. Our pool is screened in so we don't get too much stuff. But I’m a bit OCD and and brushing is my least favorite part of pool maintenance. In addition to brushing, every once in a while, I stir things up with our swim jets and adjust the valves to drain vs skimmer every so often the take care of the settled stuff now and then. I have only vacuumed a half dozen times since the pool was built about a year ago and like that less than brushing. From reading here it sounds like the Dolphin S-200 or 300 series are highly thought of. But how would they handle these features. The swim resistance jets, raised drains, steps, swimouts etc? I don't mind brushing the sides or steps if needed. Here are some pic examples of these features.
