How many times have you heard someone say that they would like to have their own in-ground pool, if it were not for the constant care and maintenance involved? Aquabot has answered that objection with the Aquabot Pool Rover. it even has a model, Aquabot Turbo T4RC, that can do the chore in an hour. Those who own these pool cleaning robots can attest to their quality and performance. They come with a four year/300 clean cycle warranty, and should you ever need to, you can more than likely troubleshoot and repair one yourself.
Verify that the floating handle is securely locked in place across the top of the unit. Shake the handle to check if there is water inside and drain it.
Remove any wall obstructions which prevent the left or right movement of the robot during the cleaning process. Tilt up or remove ladders, slides and other objects from the water. If the ladders and obstructions are not movable, divide the pool into separate sections, using the ladders as reference points, and clean each section separately. Locate the power supply at the most distant points from the pool during each cleaning cycle.
Set the power supply at the midway point of either of the long sides to allow the robot to fully extend its floating cable in either direction. Untangle and spread the cable across the surface of the water to free up its full range of movement. Make sure that upper, leading edge of the cleaning brushes is clearing the surface of the water as it cleans along the waterline.
Check the pump motor to see that it is operating correctly. If it is not, refer to your manual troubleshooting section. Make sure the drive belts and track are correctly aligned and tightly mounted. Adjust and tighten them, or replace if necessary.
Inspect the brushes themselves to see if they are worn down substantially. Worn brushes will not have the traction of full length brush bristles. Keep in mind also that water below 70 degrees F will stiffen brush bristles and decrease traction. Replace rubber brushes by cutting the tabs with a pair of scissors or pulling out the metal rod and wrapping the replacement around the rod or tube per manual instructions.
Increase flotation. Remove both screws and flip the H-float, foam side down against the bottom lid. Re-attach with screws from the outside. Add the two other floats, placing them in the areas beside the intake valve housings.
