We've had this for about 7 months and it's worked great. It will get hot and stop working if we forget to turn it off after a couple hours. We've started setting an alarm on our phones to remember. It's not fun to clean the bag out. Or to put it back together. Someday I'd like to get a vacuum that works with the pump/filter system, but for the price it has been a good purchase. It cleans it really well and has helped us keep our algae prone pool in shape.
I ordered this pool cleaner to replace my Polaris pool cleaner that went out. Wasn't really wanting to pay the $800.00 price to replace the Polaris at this point, so I decided to give this a shot. I must say that it does a much better job at cleaning my pool than the $800.00 Polaris. It will clean my pool in 2 hours, and it will suck up dirt so small that you would have never even seen otherwise. The only drawback is the cord becomes very twisted after every use and must be untangled. If they could come up with a different type of cord this would be perfect. All in All if you have a small inground pool and need a cleaner, you can't beat this one. I know it is made for an above ground pool, but I use it in my inground pool, and it works just fine. Have been using it for about 3 months now. My pool is 24' by 24' circle type inground. It doesn't clean the sides, but for the money you still can't beat this cleaner. I have been very pleased.
Worked great for 1 season, then the second summer, it started to slow down then finally stop completely. We replaced all the parts that we thought could have been the problem and still nothing. The only thing next could be the motor and no local pool shops repair this item, so it would have had to be shipped off for about a motoe replacement charge, if thats even what was wrong with it. End up buying another robot cleaner this year.
