I'm wanting a robot that is quick to get started and is straight forward to clean out. The pool is vinyl. We do get occasional leaves. I still plan on vacuuming it myself but would like something that lets me not have to do it myself as often. I've looked at so many that they are all blending together in my head. Looking for a mid-range option.

Spend your quality time brushing the pool and using the mesh net on the surface to tone your forearms.
Or vacuum the livingroom rug instead. :mrgreen:

Thank you so much! I have the S200 on the way and am glad to hear I won't be vacuuming. i was concerned it would be like the robot carpet cleaners that ok enough inbetween.

It’s the opposite, you can vacuum and think it’s clean then 30 minutes later will be surprised at what the robot picked up 😀

I spent an hour manually vacuuming my pool every Saturday morning before I started with a robot. I couldn't tell you where the vacuum is these days (wife likely left it out for trash pickup, along with the unsightly hose).
