Aquabot Classic Robotic Pool Cleaner Review

We’re reviewing the robotic pool cleaner that started it all: The Aquabot Classic. Let’s begin!

The Aquabot Classic is a great investment for inground pools of all surfaces. With active scrubbing brushes, it will clean the floor, walls, waterline, and even most stairs. I highly recommend this automatic pool cleaner. I’ve been recommending it for a very long time.

The Aquabot Classic comes with:

  • A Power supply.
  • The cleaner itself which is attached to a 50-foot floating power cable.
  • The filter bag with flotation and intake extensions if needed.

You can start using it right out of the box. It’s a simple plug-and-play operation which is why I love Aquabot robotic pool cleaners like this so much.

  1. First, make sure the filter bag is property seated inside the cleaner.
  2. Plug the power supply into a GFCI outlet near your pool.
  3. Plug the floating power cable from the cleaner into the power supply.
  4. Then, place the cleaner in the shallow end of your pool (if you have one) and let the cleaner slowly fall to the bottom of the pool right side up.
  5. And finally, turn on the power supply to start cleaning your pool. The cleaner will run until you shut it off.

Once the Aquabot Classic is finished cleaning, remove the cleaner from your pool and let the water drain out. At this point, you can remove the filter baskets and rinse it down with a high-pressure garden hose, so it’s ready to go the next time you use it. It’s that easy.

I’ve had a lot of experience with the Aquabot Classic and it stands the test of time. It’s an amazing cleaner that paved the way for robotic pool care.

  • It’s inexpensive to run.
  • It can clean your pool fast and efficiently.
  • And it’s easy to set up and use over and over again because it’s completely self-contained.

Also, it can filter the water down to 2 microns, so it’s like having an extra pool filter driving around your pool. Oh, and did I mention it climbs stairs and scrubs the waterline? I did?

Happy Swimming!
