Robo Kleen 2906
This automatic above-ground pool cleaning robot worked well for one season. For the $250 we paid for it, the cleaner did a fine job, aside from occasionally getting stuck on the small ridges of our not-so-flat pool bottom surface.
However, the machine is not intended to ever be repaired. After my kid pushed it around and stripped the drive motor, I attempted to buy a new one. Even though I disassembled the unit and pulled out the motor, when I called the manufacturer, I was only given a short list of replacement parts I could buy (filter bag, power supply, etc.) The motor is completely unavailable for purchase even though it is one of the handful of parts that is likely to fail first. The machines are apparently slammed together in China and sold here, unsupported, buy its "manufacturer". Caveat emptor.
