Moreover, by using a robotic cleaner, you will extend the life of your pool’s main filtration system. If we’ve got your attention, keep on reading to learn more about this amazing device.

Technical specifications

This automatic pool cleaner is so efficient that it can be used in pools of all sizes and it will yield perfectly. It can also adapt to any pool shape thanks to the latest technologies that allow it to always find its way. You will get excellent cleaning results from this unit that covers every inch of your home swimming pool, including the walls, waterline, stairs, and alcove. This means that you will be saving time and money with this item that can replace any other pool cleaning system.
We don’t have precise information on the filtration rate of this unit, but it’s believed to be able to handle around 5,000 gallons per hours. The Jetforce Filter technology keeps its high suction power even when it encounters large debris by separating it from the water. The two extra-large QuickDraw cartridges have a 350 q. in. capacity so they can handle large amounts of debris and they can be easily replaced to maintain the unit’s efficiency.

Features

The great efficiency of this device is due to a combination of some amazing cleaning features. The Tripleclean scrubbing brushes help it remove the dirt off the pool’s surface and keep it attached to the pool so it will clean every corner. Two of the brushes spin while scrubbing the dirt and the third one oscillates back and forth to eliminate the more stubborn dirt. The cleaning is performed by following a path created by the intelligent navigation of the robotic pool cleaner so it won’t miss a spot or get stuck in corners.
This unit is fully compatible with external timers and automation systems so it can be controlled using a smartphone. In addition to this, it comes with its own programmable timer that allows you to set it every 2,3, or 4 days for cleaning the pool in 1, 1.5, and 2-hour increments. There is also a remote control option but it needs to be purchased separately.

Design and accessories

The design of this pool robot has suffered many changes compared to the previous models. You can see how much attention the manufacturer has put in the details and that it has been designed for the most stylish pools. It boasts a futuristic design and stands out as one of the most interesting robotic pool cleaners of its generation. The housing is made of a strong plastic in white and blue, so it easily blends into the pool design. Measuring 20.8 x 20.5 x 18.5 inches and weighing 39.6 pounds, it’s also one of the smallest versions that promotes ease of use.
An innovating feature worth mentioning, which involves both design and convenience, is the 360° anti-tangle feature that makes sure the robotic cleaner will never get stuck in its own cord no matter how many times it changes direction. For added convenience, this model is available with a storage and transportation caddy so you can easily move it around the yard and store it away.

Noise and energy efficiency

Customers who have tried this automatic pool robot say that its noise level is acceptable and that they have no problems turning it on while relaxing by the poolside. The advanced technologies and the quality motor ensure a comfortable and silent operation, compared to other models that are louder. As for the energy consumption, you can rest assured knowing that this unit operates on the electricity required by 3 light bulbs. The DC motor that replaces the pumps in other filtration systems runs on little energy so the operating costs don’t exceed 5 cents per hour without sacrificing performance. The 3000 RPM motor and the high suction power can eliminate even the most stubborn dirt.

Energy saving features

Besides the motor that saves energy, there are other features that make it a great energy saving appliance. First of all, there are the Evergrip rubber tracks that improve the adherence of the unit and keep it from slipping over walls or steps. Also, the robotic pool cleaner is built with an Aquasmart 2.0 microprocessor that enables the smart navigation. This pool mapping system keeps the unit on track without wasting energy by taking it to already clean spots. This ensures the unit will walk only where needed, will avoid obstacles, and will create an efficient cleaning path.
For even more energy saving, the Elite comes with an automatic shut-off option that turns it off at the end of each cleaning cycle. Every time it finishes cleaning, it will turn off, so no energy will be wasted, and you can use it as many times as you want without worrying about the electricity bill.

Ease of use and durability

Being so compact and lightweight, it is very easy to handle. You simply grab it from the handle, put it in the water, set its cleaning cycle, and it will do its job without requiring your assistance. Such performance comes with a great warranty that makes it extremely reliable. The unit is guaranteed to arrive free of manufacturing defects and every malfunction during the first 3 years after the purchase will be covered by the warranty.

Important Benefits of Owning this Robot Pool Cleaner

All robot pool cleaners have a common benefit, more precisely the fact that they do the chore of cleaning the pool for you, thus allowing you to tend to other chores or simply relax. But this device differs from most units available on the market due to the fact that it boasts a number of additional features that add to its performance. In the article, we have already talked about them, but it’s important for you to know exactly how you benefit from them. First and foremost, know that these features contribute to the energy efficiency of the unit. Therefore, you won’t spend a lot of money on operating it, and you will help save the planet as well. Also, the many features of the robot make it easier for you to carry and store the unit, thus ensuring that you won’t have a hard time using it.

Final Thoughts

This pool robot is a dream come true for all pool owners who are tired of wasting their time on the annoying chore of cleaning the pool. The robot effectively scrubs all the surfaces of the pool clean with the help of the Tripleclean brushes that it features, ensuring that dirt, debris, and bacteria won’t be present in it. The intelligent navigation system of the unit is capable of finding the most optimal path to clean the pool in order to reduce operational costs as much as possible. What makes it even more exceptional is the fact that it can be set to clean the pool in one, one and a half, and two-hour increments over a span of two to four days. What we didn’t like was the fact that the remote control is optional, meaning that you have to buy it separately. But this isn’t a big impediment, and we couldn’t deny the robot’s amazing cleaning performance, this being the reason why we strongly recommend it to all pool owners.
