Although a little pricey, this device is an excellent automatic pool cleaner that offers plenty of advantages for the money. It's sleek, efficient, energy-saving, quiet, and durable, so the investment is well worth it.
Aquabot Elite is one of the most innovative robots when it comes to the upkeep of your pool. It perfectly blends the sleek, modern design, with the high-end performance, the result being a flawless, clear, bacteria-free pool. It also allows you to select how fast you wish your pool to be cleaned, all while keeping the overall costs at a minimum. It revolutionizes the pool upkeep process, offering you a premium experience through long-lasting utilization.
Compact and petite, it occupies no more than 20” by 20” by 18.5”, and it includes a caddy for hassle-free storage and uncluttered floors. It will also come in handy when you wish to relocate the robot inside the equipment storage, as its weight reaches almost 40 lbs, which might be a bit difficult to transport on its own. However, the sleek design and functional handle compensate for it, as it allows you to not only maneuver it without the worry of dropping it, but also fold it or readjust it in need. The casing will also protect it from different water temperatures, ensuring that it can function efficiently even if the water is heated, or cold.
Even underwater the unit will retain the same struggle-less mobility, as its uninterrupted tracks will provide a weightless experience. They are crafted from Evergrip rubber which adds stability as well as balance, guaranteeing the unit won’t lose its footing when tackling various terrains and surfaces. Even more, it will enhance the adhesion to walls, offering the robot complete security when climbing vertical areas, while causing no harm to the inner lining of the pool. The long 60′ cable offers a wide reach, but you’ll have to make sure that no outdoor equipment or toy can become a reason for tangling.
To offer a deep-clean, the innovative triple-brush system will be put to good use, offering the same result as a consistent, manual brushing and sweeping. The front and back brush rolls are constantly moving, the pleated bristles gently but firmly dislodging stuck particles whenever it goes. To ensure the dirt is completely removed with only one pass, the third, bottom-placed brush utilizes the oscillating movements of its rubberized bristles. This will force the debris into either the front-placed or the rear-situated intakes, capturing it and preventing it from returning into the water. Additionally, for a more personalized experience, the intakes can be adapted to each user’s preferences, as they can be lowered or widened, to either go closer to the vacuumed area or allow large-scale debris to pass easier.
The filters will ensure anything that has already been vacuumed is kept away from the water, as their high and extra-fine porosity will capture particles as small as a few microns. This makes them highly efficient when dealing with silt, sand, dust, or leaves particles at the bottom of the pool. The QuickDraw cartridge system type ensures quick dislodging, enabling you to easily access them through the top of the unit in just a few moments. They are spacious; therefore they can handle a complete cleaning cycle without requiring your attention, whereas their design makes for hassle-free cleaning. Even more, the unit is fully autonomous, requiring no connection to the pool’s filtration system.
To navigate effortlessly underwater, it employs the Aquasmart 2.0 guiding system, which scans and detects the possible obstacles in its path, like drains, water toys, or stairs. Not only will it not remain stuck in corners or narrow angles, but the unit will calculate the most efficient path to cover the entire pool area in the least amount of time possible. Moreover, not only the floor will be its main target, but its cleaning will extend to other areas, including slopes, coves, walls, even going as high as the waterline, removing any calcium deposits stuck there. Through its complex pattern, it also aids the chemicals to be evenly distributed, which, in turn, leads to improved water balance and circulation.
To transform the cleaning chore into a hassle-free process, the unit is fully capable of providing a wide range of personalized settings, from cleaning modes to timers.
Although the unit includes no indicator lights to let you know how it fares, its maintenance is hassle-free. The filters and debris chambers are generous, ensuring the unit will last through an entire cleaning cycle without demanding human interaction. However, once the cleaning is finished, it is recommended to thoroughly rinse the filters with clean water, and remove the collected trash. Another point that might need your attention in time, are the brushes and the tracks. As they are the main moving parts of the unit, they will wear down the longer you utilize the robot.
Therefore, you should regularly check their integrity and assure the rubber is still intact. While it shouldn’t pose an issue during its utilization, the manufacturer offers a generous warranty of 3 years, beginning as soon as you’ve acquired the unit. You should also keep in mind the water state before you decide to use it. Odd-colored water can be caused by a series of factors, including algae of all sorts, high alkalinity, as well as faulty chemistry, which won’t affect only swimmers. If the unit is utilized during this time, it will get damaged. Also, pay attention to how the concentrated the chlorine level is, as high amounts of it, as well as high pH levels can have a corrosive result on the vacuum.
Aquabot Elite offers a premium-quality cleaning for your pool, indifferent to its shape or texture. It offers personalized performance according to each user’s preferences and needs while keeping the costs to a minimum. Seeing as it requires little to no human interaction, as well as offering a way of setting a scheduled cleaning, your pool will remain always spick and span with minimum effort.
