The Aquabot Turbo T2 Plus is more than just a pool cleaner. It is a modern robot that excels in the most important category: cleaning.
Although a bit pricier than other units, Aquabot Turbo T2 Plus is worth every cent. It delivers high performance and exceptional quality cleaning, and it is fully capable of keeping even larger basins spotless. Highly adjustable to your schedule, it won’t require your direct supervision as it works to freshen up the pool, ensuring you’ll have a crystal clear basin when you return from work. The controls are facile, so it won’t become a headache, and, best of all, it is fully autonomous, meaning it doesn’t overload the skimmer, filter, or pump, nor does it require additional gear to function.
Solidly built, its durable casing will ensure uninterrupted performance for years on end, as it will keep safe the inner components. It is donned in white and blue colors, so it is easy to spot underwater whenever you wish to check on it. The sturdy casing will protect it against various water temperatures, enabling the robot to function in cold and heated water, regardless of what type of heater you employ. What stands out about its design, aside from the sturdy look, is its top-placed handle.
Wider than those of other units, it offers enough space to hold a secure grip on it, so it won’t slip through your fingers. Even more, it is not only foldable, but also flexible, allowing you to move its sides backward and forward, and even set it in a diagonal position. To top it off, a weight is also directly installed on it, weight which you can freely move around the handle, to provide the unit with increased stability.
For effortless underwater navigation, it employs the power of continuous tracks, which due to their triangular design, offer the unit extensive balance during the cleaning procedure. Additionally, they are made from solid rubber, so the robot will do no damage to the basin’s surface, indifferent to the material it is made of. The tracks present indentations, which assure a strong grip even on steep walls. On each side, the G-tooth system will aid in keeping the unit’s integrity safe, as they will prevent the robot’s edges from rubbing directly against the wall.
It doesn’t only vacuum, but it also sweeps the floor in the process, indifferent to which direction it goes. Placed at both ends, two pairs of plated brushes will actively scrub the floor, dislodging dirt and glued-to-the-ground particles. The bristles are plated and also made from strong rubber, so they provide a gentle yet firm cleaning. So, you won’t have to manually brush or sweep the basin prior to the vacuum’s utilization.
For an increased convenience as well as a thorough cleanse, unit offers a unique water jet system, situated directly underneath it. Two strong water jets will act as secondary brushes, loosening up and quickly redirecting the particles right into the two wide intakes, and straight into the filter bag. The bag offers a generous capacity, is easily washable, and can restrain any microorganism as small as 2 microns, including algae, silt and dust.
When its performance is concerned, you’ll benefit only from top-end results. Compared to other units that move chaotically around the pool, this unit utilizes the AquaSmart navigation system which guides it in a logical pattern all over the area. It will cover all the nooks and crannies, even the tight corners, and will do so without getting itself blocked in the process, thanks to the NeverStuck function.
It offers you increased diversity over how you wish to program its schedule. There are two modes available for utilization, one that takes care of the floor and coves only, and the second one which extends the range to the walls, waterline, and also steps. Depending on how dirty the pool is, you can select between 1 to 7 working hours; but most pools are sparkly clean in just 2 to 3 hours. However, if you wish to use it during nighttime, ensure you’ve removed the pool alarms so they won’t become a bother.
It has an automatic shut off which will stop the unit when it has reached the programmed time, and although it includes no weekly timer of its own, it is compatible with one. It is also an economical choice in more than one regard, as it utilizes only 5 cents per hour, therefore, it won’t raise the electricity bills. Even more, as it cleans it also filtrates the water with up to 75 gallons per minute, which ensures an even distribution of water chemicals, reducing, in turn, the amount used. Also, this helps water circulation, leading to a correct water balance.
Crafted for heavy-duty use, it won’t waste too much of your time with its upkeep. However, there are some elements you should pay attention to and keep an eye on, as they might deteriorate with time. The tracks and brushes are two of them, as the rubberized material will wear out proportionally to how often you utilize the unit. Additionally, you should keep an eye on the filtration bag, as it requires regular cleaning, preferably after every utilization, to prevent mold growth.
Another element you should consider is water balance. Test it before you utilize the vacuum, as high pH and alkalinity levels will prematurely deteriorate the casing and filters, as deposits will appear on the robot. Additionally, high chlorine concentration can also damage the unit, and it is also recommended to never use it in odd-colored water or water that has a milky aspect.
The manufacturer offers a helping hand when it comes to any problem you might face while in possession of the unit, through a limited 3-year warranty. The first years covers parts and labor while the remaining two only cover the parts. It also provides a helpful customer support line which will provide you with answers to your questions.
All in all, Aquabot Turbo T2 Plus offers a complete cleaning-care to your pool. It packs an excellent performance with an adaptable timer, whereas its ability to remove stuck debris is unmatched. It even includes a transportation and storage caddy to reduce the burden on your body. With a long cord that enables it to reach a wide range of pool lengths, it will easily leave it spotless in its wake.
