Wow, great service and a great product
My son recently purchased a house with a pool, and I offered to help pay the running costs of the pool (First house and all that). As a kid I often helped clean the pools at Motels my father managed, so I understood the basics of pool maintenance, but it takes time, something that is always in short supply.
After researching the available cleaners, I messaged Robo-Tek for advice on friday night, Monday I had my answers and had ordered the cleaner. It arrived less than 2 days later! In less than an hour my "Clean pool" had clogged the 70 micron...bag completely, and I was astounded - did I mention the pool was CLEAN! I decided to leave it a few days and have another go and see just how much more I can clean up off the pool floor and walls, but I'm amazed at just how good this has cleaned up the floor so far. I gave up on the walls when the clogged bag caused the suction to lower enough to occasionally slip down, and allowed it to concentrate on the floors only. The cloth bag, while large in area, is slightly harder to clean compared to other hose out plastic baskets, but being much finer, it picks up a lot more fine material, so after a few cleans I think it will be less of an issue. A1 support from the Robo-Tek staff, and I would highly recommend the Robo-Tek Robo-Plus cleaner to anyone looking for more pool time and less maintenance time.

Stunning product and service - buy it
We bought an expensive competing product that let us down. It didn't cover our pool area and never actually got it clean. In disgust we bought RoboTek based on reviews here. It works as promised. The pool is clean in 20 minutes. It gets everything. Then the floods came. Rain fell from the sky and our box was upside down and the electrics were flooded. Nothing could have survived this. I called and spoke to Steve. We caused the damage but he said he felt for us and would fix it for free. He did. It works again. Amazing. Thanks Steve for your kindness and I wish you every success with RoboTek.

Love our Robo-Tek!
Over the years, we have tried the other pool cleaners but nothing compares to the Robo-Tek. It scoots along and picks up everything and we only need to use it 1-2 times per week. It certainly has improved the water quality of our pool and has never looked so crystal clear. Thanks guys!

Excellent product. Makes life easier
I bought the robotec plus based on reviews here and other reviews I read on the web.
I had previously used a dolphin unit which was practically useless, especially, for picking up the fine dust deposited in the pool, from the bushfires.
Over the last two summers I could not keep the pool clean and clear, because of the fine dust deposited from the rain. Manual vacuuming, or using the dolphin simply caused the fine dust to be pushed into suspension causing the pool to be cloudy.
Anyway I bought the robotec, and inserted the fine filter bag.... I ran it for two full cycles on the first day and noticed an improvement immediately. At the end of each cycle the bag would be full of debris and the dust particles, which I would clean in a bucket and hose with a nozzle. Within a few days the pool was clean, clear and how I would expect it to be. The unit is heavy, but for a good reason, it's robust and powerful.

Tried everything....this is the best.
We live in SE Queensland and have a 12m pool that has very large gums around one end that constantly shed large and small material into our pool all year round. We inherited a suction cleaner with the house and the throat had been adjusted to suck up larger leaves and debris. It worked ok but would clog easily and the sand filter was always filthy. The suction cleaner broke down and we fixed it however eventually it gave up and we went in search of the best cleaner we could find. Our pool guy put us onto other brand robots and we tried three di...fferent brands, all which were spectacular in their inability to clean our pool so much so that the leaves not picked up stained the pool floor. After days of research and hours of reading reviews I settled on the Robo-tek Plus. Since the day it entered the pool some 7 months ago it has not missed a beat and is by far the most efficient and effective pool cleaner we have used. It covers the area quickly and the suction is strong. It picks up large and small debris across the entire pool and leaves the water crystal clear and pristine. The bag is easy to empty and I am amazed at the amount of small debris and the fine dirt captured in the bag which is easily rinsed under the tap. We no longer have gum leaves and nuts and other debris sitting around in our pool and the pool is always clean and sparkling. I never write reviews for products but I have decided to write this one as I am so impressed with the Robo-tek’s performance. Finally, in researching before buying I spoke to the company and got great advice and assurance that should this cleaner not perform to our expectations I would receive my money back. Further they indicated the cleaner software can be tweaked to adjust to different pools with steps or ledges where the cleaner may not climb. I haven’t had to make any adjustments as the cleaner is flawless. If you’re struggling like I was in finding a pool cleaner that performs well then give a Robo-tek a try - I doubt you will be disappointed.

Great product - very happy
Our home is in a very leafy and rather dusty area.
I do a short cycle with the 70 micron filter to remove leaves from the pool floor, then a longer cycle with the 20 micron filter for floor and walls. The machine does a fantastic job and I'm thrilled with the performance.
Ours is a salt pool with chlorinator producing the chlorine. Since using the Robo-plus I have noticed that the level of free chlorine remains high; so much so that I have reduced the pool run-time and the chlorine generation which is a plus, saving electricity costs.

Wish we had this years ago !
This is the best thing that ever happened to pools. It cleans to an exceptionally high standard and the pool has never looked so sparkling. The only thing I can find fault with is that the blue power hose gets tangled in the Robo "feet" and keeps trying to get untangled but can't until we come to its rescue. What it needs is a float device attached to the hose above the robo but I can't seem to be able to find any. Steve do you know of, or do you have one or two we could buy please? Many thanks

A great machine most of the time
It cleans up small leaves, fine debris, calcium flakes in our pool easily. It does a great job of cleaning the pool, but at 3 month old its begun to come appart during cleaning. The bottom clips come undone. Last clean unbeknown to us the whole bottom filter plate fell out and was dragging under the unit along the pebblecrete pool floor. When I picked the unit out of the pool the plate was left in the pool on the floor to our surprise. Technical support suggests bending the clips on the bottom for those having similar issues.

Not a well built product not suited to Australia conditions.
We had our machine repaired three times in three years we’ve owned it, the last only two months ago and already stopped working. Very frustrating and expensive product to own costing over $1000/ year. Not a well built product and certainly not suited to Australian conditions.
What a machine!!!! My pool has never looked so good, it picks up the tinniest of dirt and sand and does and amazing job of the walls and steps! I live in the hills in Sydney and this unit is incredible for leaves, twigs, and bark!
My neighbour borrowed the cleaner for 2 days and bought her own she was so impressed.
It’s user friendly, simple and the service is world class! Truly the greatest cleaner on the market and I’ve gone through 4 big name brands!

Brilliant Cleaner,Brilliant Service!
My tiled pool was completed just prior to Christmas. After much homework on the internet I decided on the Robo Plus. Unfortunately, when I went to purchase online I was advised that they were out of stock and wouldn’t be available for five to six weeks. I was disappointed as due to COVID the pool took a lot longer than usual to be completed and the hot weather was just upon us. I rang the number on the website and explained my dilemma to Steve - six weeks is just too long to leave a pool without cleaning. He rang me back the following day and a...dvised that he had secured one for me, and it arrived 10 days later. Brilliant! I am not new to pools and have always used a Kreepy Krauly, which I have never really been happy with. The pool debris that we get is mainly small leaves from gum trees and the usual dirt and leaf litter. Just prior to getting the Robo Plus I had an algae problem. After treating the water I was delighted to find the pool crystal clear and the cloth bag full of the green algae. Since then I use the robot once a week for two hours. I have never had such a clean pool. I initially had an issue with the climbing function of the Robo Plus - it just didn’t seem to climb the walls properly. The solution was only a text away. I raised my concern with Steve and the following day received a text with photos of the correct programming process. The Robo Plus really does a beautiful job of keeping the pool clean. I think the inconvenience of having to wheel the robot out to the pool and then clean the cloth bag is a very small price to pay for the result that you get. There are so many advantages in having a pool cleaner that is independent of the filtration system. My only negative is with the caddy which was out of alignment and made it difficult to fit all of the screws. (This has no impact on the performance of the robot) Buying the Robo Plus was a leap of faith for me as I hadn’t seen a robot cleaner in use. I would never normally buy something like this that I hadn’t been able to see and touch, and test. I’m so glad I took the chance as it really is brilliant! I live in Montrose in Melbourne. I would be very happy to show the Robo Plus in operation to anyone who might be unsure if it is the right pool cleaner for them. I’m not sure how to facilitate this, but am happy for Steve to pass on my details if anyone would like a test drive.

reasonable clean but overall bit disappointed
Purchased a robo-tek rover cordless for $3260 after reading the reviews on here and wanting to avoid the cord. I previously owned a Hayward Tiger Shark at a previous property. Our pool here is fully tiled and recently installed.
I agree with the previous poster's comments. The Tiger Shark, which was significantly cheaper, cleaned the pool better at the expense of dealing with the cord. I have tried 3 cycles of the cleaner now (having to charge the battery each time as it run out of charge) and the robot-tek is still leaving behind considerable ...

Good, but not significantly better than others...
Does a reasonable job.
The remote is handy.
But consider other options. I wonder if most 5 star reviews are by first time robot owners.
- It is significantly bigger and bulkier.
- the manual is pretty half hearted
- the process to empty the bag/filter is annoying - it’s a fiddly process to clean the debris out of the bag, and getting it back into the unit is a frustrating exercise.
- wall and steps cleaning doesn’t seem as good as prior robot...

Does a fantastic job
Not often a product is universally lauded but you cannot fault the cleaning power of the Robo plus
1. On your next “one pager “ simply add the information that to get device to sink squeeze and keep squeezing the foam rollers .. took a call to place of purchase to get this invaluable snippet
2. The caddy purchased was horribly out of alignment so much so that a nut could not tighten on the 4th screw. Took back to shop which is an annoyance as was on other side of town. On opening two more caddies they were found to have the same issues. Luck...

Excellent Robotic Pool Cleaner
I have had the Robo-Tek Robo-Plus for about three months. It is the second robotic cleaner I have bought. It is far superior to the previous cleaner.
The pre-purchase discussions with Steve at Robo-Tek and and the demonstration with John Guy (Cranbourne Pool and Spa) made it an easy decision to purchase.
It does an excellent job of cleaning the pool and climbs the concrete walls with ease. It moves rapidly around the pool and does an excellent job of picking up debris. The powerful motor ensures the pool is thoroughly circulated. As a result...

Questions & Answers
Recently bought a property with a pool. First pool experience. Its a small pool 2.8m x 6m with 22500 L capacity. Considering Robo-Tek Plus.......but looks like it will an overkill for the small pool?
2.8 X 6 is certainly not the smallest pool we have the Robo-Plus in. The 2.8 width means you really need a robot with TWIN drive motors in order to get a thorough clean. All the Robo range have the twin drive motors. So, yes it will clean the pool in about 30 minutes....But it will "really clean" the pool...And that is what really matters. any other questions give us a call...Weekend is fine 03 9357 5662 Steve
Thanks Steve. Any local supplier close to Kellyville 2155.?
Hi Sharjeel, if you contact Terry from A Better Way Pool Services on 0400 479 533 he will be happy to help you. BTW he is mobile and is in Quakers Hill.
Any authorised reseller in Brisbane?
Hi Jess, If you could contact me on 03 9357 5662, we can discuss.
