This model is designed to effectively and efficiently clean in-ground concrete and gunite pools, so if you have such a pool, it’s definitely worth taking it into consideration. Also, it comes at the price of approximately $365, being more than accessible when compared to how much other automatic pool cleaners cost.

Technical specifications

This unit comes with a 40-foot hose that allows it to clean pools that measure a maximum of 40 feet in length. This top of the line automatic suction pool cleaner offers complete pool coverage, being able to cover the pool floor, walls, and coves. Therefore, it ensures that no inch of the pool will be left dirty. A full cleaning cycle lasts 3-4 hours, which is standard for such devices. Due to the fact that it’s an automatic suction model, it is powered by the existing filtration system of your pool, not requiring a booster pump to work. Unfortunately, we didn’t find precise data regarding the filtration rate of this model, but what we can say for sure is that it’s highly efficient considering that it cleans pools of such an impressive size in only 3-4 hours.

Features

A major downside to this device is the fact that this model can’t climb steps. But this isn’t such a big deal as it is expected for suction models to not commonly have this capability. While it’s true that it doesn’t feature a deflector, the chances for this unit to get stuck in corners are still slim, so you shouldn’t worry about this aspect. The amazing SmartDrive technology that it features allows it to maneuver effortlessly around the pool when cleaning it. Also, it ensures that the cleaner will find an efficient route when operating to consume as little energy as possible and to be done with its task fast. Unfortunately, it lacks important features such as an automatic shut-off, a programmable timer, or a remote control, features that would have made it even more convenient to use.

Also, the compact size and light weight offer you the possibility to put it into the pool and take it out with ease, not having to put too much effort into this task. The hose that it comes with measures 40 feet, which is more than enough to ensure that it will be able to clean large sized pools. The Hydro-Dynamic head that it features allows an effortless navigation through the water. Best of all, the SmartDrive technology that it comes with ensures that the hose won’t tangle as it maneuvers the unit in a careful manner.

Noise and energy efficiency

Something that can’t be overlooked when analyzing this model is the fact that this model is highly energy efficient. This is all due to the fact that it draws its power from the existing filtration system, thus not needing an energy-consuming booster pump to work. When it comes to the noise that it produces as it operates, this suction side pool cleaner is as quiet as it can be. What makes it so quiet is the fact that it doesn’t feature noisy parts, and it doesn’t come with pulsating hoses, thus ensuring a peaceful pool environment even when it’s cleaning.

Ease of use and durability

This robot is a dream come true for those who don’t like to waste time on complicated setups as it takes less than 10 minutes to connect it to the suction port or to the skimmer. Best of all, no tools are required for the task. When it comes to warranty, this model is backed up by the manufacturer for 2 years, so you are ensured that it will be fixed or replaced free of charge during this period of time.

Final thoughts

The performance of this item makes this unit a great choice for those who desire to have a high-quality pool cleaning device. Despite the fact that it boosts a design that sets it apart from its competitors, it also prides extremely efficient and easy to use as well. It comes with a SmartDrive technology that helps it maneuver effortlessly around the pool when operating, without getting stuck in corners. Another thing that we really like about this product is the fact that it doesn’t need a booster pump to works, being powered by the existing filtration system of the pool. Like any other product, this one also has a few drawbacks. For instance, it’s important to know that it doesn’t come with a programmable timer, a remote control or an automatic shut-off. However, it’s definitely worth taking it into consideration because it delivers great results.

    Hello! I have heard that some cleaners work better on vinyl pool than on gunite surfaces. What is the difference in the vinyl head versus the gunite units? I am planning to purchase this robotic pool cleaner, but I have a gunite unit. Will it work well on it?
