I am considering buying a pool cleaning robot for our HOA pool which is about 40'x65' with 4 swim lanes (about 65,000 gallons).

Any suggestions for an affordable pool cleaning robot?

Joel,
I am relieved after reading your post. I though it said Pool Cleaning Robert's and I was going back to work. I'm sorry, I didn't even know there was such a thing. Maybe if could be modified to also do pedicures and the association could pick up a little change.

LOL!! thats very funny Robert!!

I am referring to machines that automatically clean pools. They have been around for years but new lower cost models have come out recently that make me wonder if its time to take the plunge?

Joel,

Lets look at the pros and cons of the robots. Number one. They run all day or all night on electricity. (Only when the pool pump is running do they work, therefor electricity) Number Two. Swimmers get tangled in the long hoses unless again, you run it all night. (We pulled ours almost out of the water when anyone was in the water but not enough that it sucked air) Number Three. Being a community pool, they need to run many hours to keep the bottom clean. Don't forget, it cannot check your chemical levels and you will need a human to do that. The commercial sized ones are in the thousands and 2 home sized ones will be in need or repair and replacement more often because of the heavy load on them. (We loved or "Navigator" but replaced feet every year)
