I did a lot of research before buying this. Plug it in, submerge it in your pool and walk away. I have a larger pool so it takes two or three runs to clean everything. It was actually cool to watch this thing climb the walls. It really does clean the algae off the walls. I was shocked. The bag is easy to remove and clean. I usually get several runs before I have to empty the bag. I was a little hesitant about spending the money but after using it, the time I save using this product was well worth the price I paid.

I found this pool vacuum to be really good and simple to use. Cleaning the filter bags is a little messy, but overall this is a good product. It is lightweight as advertised and meets my needs for a 20x40 Foot in ground pool. Very satisfied.

this product was as we expected but wish it came with attachment to hook up the hose to the out going hole of the intex pool so we have to hold it by hand while the other does the vaccumning.

This is my second Aquabot Hybrid Pool Rover, and I am sure that it will not be my last. I have an enormous (16-foot by 32-foot) above-ground pool, which is surrounded by trees and remains uncovered, 365 days of the year. As a result, there are always leaves, insects, and other naturally-occuring debris in the water. The summers are particularly brutal, because the rainy season causes our trees to grow and shed leaves like crazy...and this little machine picks up everything! I had a previous Pool Rover, and ran it at least once daily for two and a half years. Eventually all of that hard work (and me leaving it out in the Florida elements more often than I should have) caused the power cord to break. I chose to buy a new Pool Rover rather than replacing the power cord, though I'm sure the little Aquabot would have kept working if I had chosen to change the cord. It takes the little Aquabot about 20-30 minutes to clean the bottom of my pool. At the end of the cleaning cycle, I just empty the bag and hose off the smaller debris, and it is ready to run again. When the pool is full of leaves, I will often run it twice, because it picks up so much debris that the bag has to be emptied...the Rover will automatically stop itself once the debris bag is full. It really does an amazing job. It even "climbs" the walls of the pool, to get debris closer to the top! Some advice for new owners: 1) Get extra debris bags. This way you can switch out a full one and wash it while you run the Rover again. Overstock has additional bags for sale. 2) Change the "direction pin" on the front of the Rover at least every few times you run it. It will keep the power cord from becoming tangled. 3) Buy a "pool noodle" and cut it length-wise, and use it to cover part of the power cord. The cord itself is insulated against water, but the noodle will give it extra protection and buoyancy, helping to keep it from tangling. I didn't do this previously, but have started with my new Aquabot, and I think it will keep my little Pool Rover working hard for a longer period.

This is not their top of the line product so you should not expect all the bells and whistles. What it does do is clean your pool for a reasonable cost. You have to play with the foam to get the right amount of bouyancy but that is my only complaint. We have a 40 foot kidney shaped gunite pool and it cleans it pretty well. It comes with 2 types of bags for the vaccuum which is nice. We find that cleaning time to be 1-2 hours but overall very satisfied.

This is an amazing product ~ easy to use and picks up leaves and pine needles quickly. I don't know how I managed to clean the debris out of the pool before I got this. Works way better than my Polaris!! I like the fact that it works with the garden hose, no need to worry about using the pool vacuum which runs off the pool pump and often loses suction..

I purchased 5 sections to enclose my pool and spa to protect my senior dog, who has difficulty seeing, from falling into the pool once again. It works perfectly! He was upset that he couldn't get right next to the edge, but we were relieved! My husband put it up in a couple of hours using a drill. Make sure you download the assembly instruction from Water Warden website so you can know what tools you will need and how to set it up. You might also need to trim the bottom of the pole that goes into the ground if you happen to hit a rebar. We did in 4 places so rather than drilling into the rebar, we trimmed the pole. It's still very sturdy and stands upright without a problem.

This is like a toy for the kids to use now no one minds cleaning the pool. It is no longer a chore.

We bought this for our soft side, inflatable (blow up the ring and fill with water ) pool. Finally got it on last night and tucked the edges of the blanket under the ring of the pool. It did not sink nor did it blow away in the strong (up to 50mph) New Mexican winds. I think it will also help keep the pool clean. It's certainly easier to deal with than the pool cover

The pool kit was a good price compared to buying each item separately. Since I only an 11' pool the hose was way too long, but it does the job very nicely.

I have a small pool and there is nothing else in the world like this to clean up with. I can clean my entire pool with it, the batteries feel like they last forever, the box says it will run on 3 hours on a set of batteries. I do not have to try to use any hoses that came with the pool and all the difficulty of trying to set them up. I use the Aqua Broom on my small above ground pool. I love the item and highly recommend it. to anyone who has a small pool or even a fountain

I immediately opened the product and put it to use I was impressed with the wall climbing it does do about 2/3 up the side, it also cleans the pool in about 2 hours, I have not witnessed the auto shutoff after 4 hours as I have not left it in that long yet. I did however experience a shutdown of the power box and which I could not get it working that day again. The next day I notified customer service at aquabot who was very helpful, he had me test the unit out of water (only using his specific instructions) and it worked, though we were not sure why at that time it cut off, he registered my product and told me to continue to use it if the same issue happened again (after 30 day trial warranty) they would honor the free shipping back that they offer for issues in the first 30 days. Two days later we realized that the extension cord we were using to ensure the power supply stayed away from the water had some rain water in the open end we believe it tripped the unit to stop working until dried out. I have not had any other issues since that day.

Excellent product. Meets all my needs. Perfect for my 14' by 40' fiberglass pool. Perfectly cleans entire pool, even the steps. No hooking the hose to the filter. This vacuum has its own bag for trash. Just plug in and throw in. I love it.

So, I am a newbie to pool ownership, since end of last year and we have a 45,000 gal pool (ouch). I bought all the great tools for the pool a cleaner for thousands that crawls the side of the pool, all of the vacuuming gear and its 75 feet of hose (to fight with), but using those things for a 3 minute job of getting a few leaves off the bottom of the deep end takes 30 to 45 minutes. This portable cleaner is light and easily goes on the extension pool, and in less than three to five minutes you can do all the little trouble spots. No need to turn the settings on your pool. or mess with the filter or backwash, etc. It has a mesh bag that is easy to clean too, and hold plenty for quick clean-ups. Just make sure the nozzle and bag are clicked into place before use. Its awesome!!!

I've owned this pump setup for more than six years now. When it works it works well. Parts for this have been very difficult to find at times. Plan on paying * dollars for a new filter. After three years Filter lid O-Ring broke. Never found a replacement so I cut and epoxied old and reused. I have to do this every year now. Replacement is * dollars if you can find one. Both valves have broken within 3-4 years, replaced both with a ball valve I bought at Home depot. Have replaced Pump to filter hose at least 3 times. Pump /motor assembly keeps chugging along. Filter clogs easily but is easily cleaned with garden hose. Plan on replacing pressure indicator on filter lid assembly, I'm on my third one and it is bad. Most of the parts are common pool supply units except filter and lid o-ring. There appears to be newer updated version of this pump assembly, I have the one pictured above. Using on an 18ft Above ground pool.

As an adult I thought this product would be fun, but it lacks speed and is very loud. I would have returned this item, but it was a hassle to put it together and I'm sure it would have been a hassle to take it apart and repack it again.

It keeps our pool very clean, and so easy to use.

We have a 16 x 32 indoor pool with a 15 ft deep end that is just a pain to clean! Indoor pools have special needs, as they are much more prone to algae buildup. This vaccuum ROCKS!!! (We call it Sponge Bob) We used the micro filter bag and it just got EVERYTHING!! I can already tell it will save us a lot of energy usage, because it gets way more than our filters do...this thing is a trip to watch, it just cleans and cleans and cleans. The filter bag is a cinch to take out, wash, and replace, and when you're used to cleaning a pool the "old fashioned" way...this is so easy its incredible...wish I'd gotten it sooner. If you have a pool you need one!
An important part of owning a swimming pool is keeping it clean. A dirty pool can expose you to germs, bacteria, and parasites.

Three things cause a bathing suit to fade faster than anything else: chlorine, strong detergents, and sunlight. Any of these alone will cause fading, but when all three are combined, your swimsuit has little chance of retaining its brilliant color. Both chlorine and sunlight can bleach fabrics, and strong detergents can break down color in fabrics, resulting in color loss over time. By following these steps, you can keep a bathing suit from fading, which in turn helps it last season after season.
