If a robot cleaner says up to 33' what does that mean? The cord is 33' long?
I have a 15x40 pool and would most likely put it in the middle, would that work?

Mark,

Yes, the cord between the robot and the power supply would be 33 feet long.

A 33' cord sounds kind of short to me.. Keep in mind that the power supply should be about 10' for the edge of the pool.

All the robots that I have seen have 50' or more of cord.

Thanks,

Jim R.

Mark,

I know it is easy for me to spend your money, but most times you get what you pay for...

I have two Dolphin S200s and a Dolphin Premier. The S200 costs $699 and the Primer was about $1200... The Premier is a little over 5 years old and is now working in a rent house pool... The point is that the S200 is a much better robot for almost half the cost. The S200 has the same motors and drive mechanism as the S300 and S300i, but none of the "Extra features" that I just do not need...

Thanks,

Jim R.
