Not Impressed


Worked just fine until the 3 year warranty ended then it just stopped. Repairs were going to cost over a thousand dollars. I think a major failure under NSW Consumer Law

Not impressed


Unit has failed 3 times in 16 months. First time the impeller motor died with the drive motor failing twice. Astral have repaired it under warranty but I'm not overly confident of its longevity.

I have to say that when it works, it works pretty well. It picks up most debris including fine dust.

Great product


It cleans the bottom of the pool great, some models even climb the walls of the pool, but what dirt is going to land on the wall, simple to clean, easy to use just press a button and off it goes, our pool is large and deep so only problem if I had to find one is it may miss a spot here and there, but I am not sure if that is the cleaners fault or the pools, 12.2 meters by 5 meters, so we just put it on twice and its fine.

Works for a while


When it works it's O.K..
Had it back after 12 mths. Waited 3 months because they returned it with the base missing.
Worked 4 times and now it's going back for repairs. I just hope all the parts come back this time. Astral assured me it's not a usual thing to lose parts.

Have used mine 4 times now and cleans well. Used it the 5th time and it has stopped mid cycle and wont turn back on. Any suggestions?

Hi Paul.

Something like that happened to me, it has floats in it and they can come loss and stop it working, depending on how old it is astral will service it and fix the problem, if it is not still under warranty a robot cleaner repair man might be able to help, a local pool shop might be able to help with the address of one near you.
