What is the best pool robot/vacuum for the $? I need one that can climb walls. Also, what are some things I SHOULD be looking for with one of these things? I’ve been manually vacuuming for a year and considering a Christmas gift to myself this year! Help!

I just got the Dolphin S200 yesterday. Mine climbs the walls and scrubs the waterlines. It was so cool to watch in action. Marina Pools has the best pricing around that still allows you to still get the full two year warranty. Call and speak to Margaret. She will email you some options to choose from.

Ted,

I also recommend the S200... $700 bucks with free 2 days shipping from Marina... The S200 is the basic model without Blue Tooth, remote and caddy.. It is all that I need and works great for me.. Other enjoy the S300 and S300i with more bells and whistles, that I just do not need.

Thanks,

Jim R.

I spoke with someone at Marina Pools & Spas but just wanted confirmation from this group. Store told me that the Dolphin S200 and the Active 20 were identical and simply sold in different parts of the country. True statement? No difference in performance? They were out of the 200 but have the 20
