A visual difference is the lack of a swivel on the cable on this unit.

    Does it work with above-pools as well?

    • Becky Eddinson says:

      If you have an above-pool, you can confidently use this model, as it works very effectively.

  2. Andrew says:

    Can I set the cleaner on a timer at the same time every day or should I manually turn it on when I want to clean my swimming pool?

    • Becky Eddinson says:

      In order to avoid electrical hazards, it’s recommended to manually push the button on the power supply unit to start. Even you use a timer, you will still need to push the button.

  3. Junno says:

    Should I use this in saltwater pool?

    • Becky Eddinson says:

      The warranty sais that the unit is specially designed to work in salty water up to 5000 P.P.M. The use of the unit in sea water pools, will void the warranty. Hope this was useful.

    Does it get stuck in corners? Is it able to go over obstacles?

      Thanks to its large front wheels, the robot can easily go over obstacles without any issues. Compared to other cleaners, this model doesn’t get trapped in the pools anti-suction drain covers.

    Is this model suitable for my 20′ x 40′ pool?
