aquabot t2 turbo

Your next pool cleaner?

The Aquabot T2 Turbo is an incredibly popular product these days, and for those of you who have decided to take the plunge into the world of automatic pool cleaners (or for those of you who are just looking for something new), we figured we’d assemble a bunch of information for you (unbiased…seriously) so you can get a better feel for the product without having to go to 4,000 different sites to separate fact from fiction. So our crack research team has pulled together the following just for you!

From the Amazon (the website, not the rainforested area of South America)

For fear of infuriating the folks at Amazon, we’ll just throw down some general observations from the reviews there:
  • 3.6 out of 5 stars (after 28 reviews)
  • Most often cited pros:
    • Does a very good job cleaning. Probably a good thing since it is, y’know, a pool cleaner.
    • Quiet.
    • Light.
    • Solid construction.
  • Most often cited cons:
    • Maintenance. Changing and cleaning the filter seemed to be problematic for some users.
    • Confusing manual.
Additional Reviews
  • This review goes in depth about the functionality of the Aquabot Turbo T2. In particular the need to alternate the cleaning pattern from clockwise to counter clockwise (something that didn’t sit well with some Amazon reviewers either). But also says the cleaner does a great job climbing the walls and again, that it does an excellent job of cleaning the pool since it filters items down to 2 microns. Once again, though, some mild complaints about cleaning the filter, though the review is for the most part very positive.
  • The reviews at In The Swim tell an even more divided love/hate story with multiple one star and five star reviews. There people complain about poor construction, parts wearing out and outdated support manuals and materials. At the same time the five star reviews trumpet the incredible cleaning power and say it’s substantially better than the very popular Kreepy Krauly.
