Outdated cleaner? It's 3 years old. The cleaner is on the same pump as the skimmers, a valve switches between the two so I wouldn't save a pump. (I have three pumps total).Electricity is a non issue as last year PG&E owed me $30. (Solar) I appreciate the ideas though and I'll look up the mega robot for the future.I'd ditch that outdated cleaner for a mega robot, considering the pool size in that picture! You'll save beaucoup bucks on electricity alone not running a second pump just for the cleaner!! They clean far better also.
