After 2 years... Review by GOG
The plastic on the chassis is cracking. The clips that hold the front of the bag to the chassis are attached to the housing. That entire plastic piece has separated and now the bag cannot be held to the chassis when you take the unit out of the water.
I would say that is a poor design and to get it repaired I have to send it back AND pay an evaluation fee. That su*ks. For that much money I would expect Smartpool to have better manufactured quality in the product!
Like the way it works, disappointed in the quality so beware.
Great Purchase Review by GOG
I have not had any trouble with this unit cleaning a 18x36 pool. It uses the entire 3 hour cycle to clean and does a great job. No issues with the slope. The crew at Doheny's was very helpful in helping me choose the unit. Been using it for 2+ seasons and its the greatest present I received. Not at all disappointed.
Good Product Review by Sprek
This cleaner does a great job of cleaning. Only problem I have with it is the low clearance that keeps it from being able to cross the transition angle where the shallow end drops off to the deep end. It bottoms out and then reverses back to the deep end. Have to manually put it in the shallow end and make it stay there a while. Then you can leave the unit clean the deep end unsupervised. A little bit of a hassle but it makes up for it with its ability to clean. HUGE improvement from my old pump driven Polaris.
