Hey all, I currently have a side suction vac and want to move away from it. My pool is about 32,000 gallons and is about 9 feet deep on the deep end. Was looking at the Polaris VRX IQ+ from leslies or the non exclusive ALpha IQ+. When is the best time to buy? I saw last year they did 10% off plus a rebate and a free Blue Riot water chemistry monitor. Does anyone in the biz know if that is going to happen again? At $1500 I am looking to save whatever i can.

Contact Marina Pool Spa in Denver Co. Call tomorrow. They sell over the phone so you retain your full warranty. Many of us have Maytronics S200 or its variants. Recently it has been the Pentair Warrior SE that has the best price. Last I saw was $700, no tax, free shipping.

Sg,

First.. I would not even walk into Leslies to use their bathroom.. :mrgreen:

I'd be willing to bet my $700 dollar Dolphin S200 will clean every bit as well as any $1500 robot.. They all might have unnecessary bells and whistle that you never use, but they won't clean any better.



I suggest that you call Margaret at Marina Pool and Spa..

I have been using robots for about 15 years and the S200 "style" robot is the best one that I have ever used.

Thanks,

Jim R.

I would be hesitant about a S200 in an ABG pool as they are designed to climb the walls. Maytronics does make a robot for ABG pools, the Dolphin Active10. I am not sure of the availability of that unit.
