The Aquabot Breeze 4WD isn't a lot different from other pool cleaners, but it stands out for two reasons: ease of use and length of cord. The electric cord is 60 feet long, which means that it will clean larger pools than the typical 40-foot cords that most pool cleaners ship with. The ease of use comes from the debris box in the front of the unit. It pulls out so you can dump its twin compartments into the trash heap and snaps right back in so that you can get the 4WD back to work or put it away in storage. It's lightweight, uses rotating brushes to nudge the difficult crud off the pool bottom and walls, and has four-wheel drive on its Super Grip PVC wheels to give it extra traction and turning power. It's active scrubbing brush takes care of particularly sticky stuff on the pool bottom. It can filter particles down to two microns out of your pool water, which is pretty good by robo-cleaner standards and saves a lot of wear and tear on any automatic filters you already have installed in the pool.
It can move backward and forward, so that its turning power won't always be necessary. It will regularly climb the wall of your pool, to get rid of the algae that hangs around in those parts, making the sides of your pool slippery and scummy. That 60-foot cable has a built-in swivel so it won't get tangled when the 4WD turns -- and you can imagine what a mess it would be if a 60-foot cable got tangled into knots after a few rotations of the cleaner. Its cleaning cycle runs for three hours, after which you can simply tug it back out and park it wherever you keep it stored.
The two debris canisters on the side are easy to clean. The canisters hold more debris than any pool should ever have. And, you can view the canisters from the top.
I just plugged it in and let it do its thing for a couple of hours and it worked like a charm. Perfect for my in ground pool!
This robot cleans well, easy to clean. My only complaint is mirrored in other reviews, there is a section of the filter near the bottom that traps berries, pebbles and twigs.
The Breeze spends most of its time on the floor, which I prefer. Every five passes or so, it will climb the wall up to the waterline.
