    Is this cleaner suitable for concrete pools?

    • Becky Eddinson says:

      Hi, James! The Hayward 2025ADV Ultra XL does a great job on a smooth pool surface, such as plastered concrete pool. It does not do well on a pebble tech type surface that is not smooth.

    This pool robot works great, just like the last one we bought 5 years ago. It does a great job. My pool has never looked better.

    I am looking to purchase a pool cleaner for my in-ground pool. Is this the best model out there?

    • Becky Eddinson says:

  5. Olivia says:

    Does it remove algae as well?

    • Becky Eddinson says:

      To keep it from growing, you need to use algaecide and brush the pool as much as possible. The cleaner will help you a lot in this process, but you first have to brush and clean the pool manually.
