Pros & Cons
The Aquabot Pool Rover Jr. is an easy, fast, and efficient way to clean any above ground pool. It is pre-programmed to clean all of your pool spotlessly clean and works on flat bottomed above-ground pools: Round, oval or rectangle. Made of plastic, the junior is fully automatic, computerized robotic cleaner and has its own drive motor and filtration system. Simply turn the robotic cleaner on and drop it into your pool. Filtration system will not only remove debris, leaves, twigs, algae and bacteria but even dirt and sand from the bottom of the pool. The junior is powered by a completely safe 24-volt motor that is incredibly fast. Extra-wide non-marring wheels roll over footprints or liner wrinkles to clean every inch of your pool. Filtration system not only dispenses heat and chemicals, but it also reduces the amount of time your existing filter has to work. The Rover set includes a very easy to rinse filter bag, 40-feet of floating cord, and power supply transformer.
Some reviewers complain that the floating cord tangles or curls every time Aquabot is used. A few users noted that rover seems to just stir the dirt in water instead of picking it up, which brings back the dirt within few hours.
Overall, the Aquabot Pool Rover Jr. is a great tool to clean your pool. It reduces the time your pool's filtration system has to work and saves pool filters from clogging up. With the Aquabot's performance and features, you can spend less time cleaning your pool and more time playing in clean water this season. It is proudly made in U.S.A.
