Broken 6 months past warranty

The robot had minimal use as I have a very clean pool. Used 20 times. Always washed and kept safe. It broke down out of warranty and fluidra won't look at it . No goodwill here obviously. One look at it would show it looks in perfect nic. I'd avoid zodiac. $1100 up in smoke. Show details

Personal life saver

This is the second Zodiac Cleaner I have had as I was so impressed with the first. Only reason needed replacement was slight overuse on my behalf and not adhering strictly to instructions by leaving cleaner for long terms in the pool. Saving in time and effort in pool equipment essential for me as an 80 year old pensioner, obviating the need for arduous pool cleaning requirements experiences previously. A Godsend. Show details

Breaks down as soon as it gets past warranty

The robot does its job well. However we had it for 18 months, used it once to twice a month. And then it would not work again.

It was a nightmare to actually find the people that service these devices. Even the people suggested by zodiac did not service. Once we got one that looked at it we have been told that the motor is burned and it will cost 720$ to fix.

Very costly for an average of 30 uses!! Show details

Set and forget - great little unit !!!

For years have been using a combination of hand vacuum and suction vacuums connected to the pool filtration . This is my first robotic pool cleaner . The fx18 is light , uncomplicated and simple to use . My fibreglass pool has never looked cleaner . The wall and waterline function is great and the finer dust and dirt particles ( I purchased as well the micron filter ) are collected easily . Takes about 3 minutes to setup , 3 minutes to pack away and clean up and works independently of my pool filtration system . Wish I’d got one years ago ! So glad I went with the Pool and Spa Warehouse too as I ordered online and received the product within 3 days and I live in North Qld !!! Show details

Pool n Spar Warehouse were offering such a great price I went with them

Pool n Spar Warehouse were offering such a great price I went with them. Service was outstanding and item arrived within just a few days. As for the unit, it’s exactly as described and easy setup. I got the wall climbing one and it does exactly that. Pool is looking great. The unit is silent and turns itself off after 2.5 hours. Wish I had bought one instead of the old suction unit I bought last time. Show details

Can you leave this in the pool or does it need to be removed after each clean

Toya Nicholls

It is a great product, it can be left but I would recommend it to be taken out after each use. We store it undercover after each use and ours still looks to be in a pristine condition.

Best to remove it after a clean as the hose will get in the way of swimming ... also after use you need to clean the filter so you naturally take it out to do that ... very easy to put in & take out and it's very light so easy to move & store ...
