Second day and loving it!
After many years of my faithful Pandora, it was time to retire my machine, as I purchased a new puppy who decided he wanted to "play" with it! I have to say, I loved my old machine.
Anyway, after doing my research and speaking with many pool companies, I decided to go with the Austral RPT Plus. I purchased mine from ProSwim Pool care at Bracken Ridge QLD, very helpful and knowledgable.

Overly Expensive For Such Cheap Quality
We were recommended the Astralpool RPT Plus robotic pool cleaner by our pool builder. Turned out to be a bad mistake. We should have researched pool robots ourselves before buying.
The RPT Plus is Astralpool's premium top of range model. But it doesn’t even have a power lead swivel !! So the power lead constantly tangles and is very difficult to straighten out.
There are raised screw heads under the robot which mark pool fittings and scratch pool steps. Very poorly designed underside.
The filters are a 2 pieced hinged design cartridge which ...is clunky and always falls apart when cleaning them. The thin plastic body of the robot cracks very easily. Mine is less than 8 months old and is already cracked and looking very battered from normal use. I don't see the robot lasting more than a couple of years before needing to be replaced.
