Fortunately, we have robotic pool cleaners to handle cleaning and maintaining the pool for us now, and no manual labor is required to run them. Read the following lines and find out what the best robotic pool cleaners of 2015 are and what they do that makes them so special.
iRobot Mirra 530 Pool Cleaning Robot
The iRobot Mirra 530 robot pool cleaner is one of the few cleaners that tackles both pool surfaces and water. It costs $1000, but it stands up to it’s price, deserving every penny.
This revolutionary robotic pool cleaner is equipped with a PVC scrubbing brush. This brush is very efficient at removing bacteria, dirt, algae, leaves, and any kind of debris that is found on the pool’s floors and walls.
It has two motors, one for pumping, and one to power the robot. If you want to use it at it’s full potential, this model can filter up to 70 gallons of water per minute.
The robot’s PVA wheels are another upside to this model, because they offer a superior grip and sponge-like traction. In addition, the top-load filter canisters are easy to remove, making the device very easy to clean.
The downsides to this robot pool cleaner are the fact that pieces of foam by the propeller can get jammed, and the fact that it costs so much, but this is explainable due to its amazing performance and the overall great quality of the product.

This robotic pool cleaner is very popular because it offers complete cleaning for in-ground residential pools that are up to 50 feet long easily in no more than 3 hours, and it only costs $600, being almost two times cheaper than the first product we reviewed.
Because it is a lightweight device, it’s easy to use, and it’s a well-rounded choice.
Aside from cleaning the pool, it can easily get into coves and walls. This way it can scoop up dirt and debris from tight spaces.
In addition, this model features an easy to clean cartridge filter, and a spring clean-up filter designed for heavy cleaning demands.
The downsides to this product are the fact that it needs a power outlet to plug it in for the item to operate, and it struggles with climbing steps.

When it comes to price, this robotic cleaner costs $1000, as much as the iRobot Mirra 530 costs.
The best asset of this device is the fact that the on-board computer calculates the pool parameters. This is possible because it uses Digital Signal Processing to calculate the pool size and shape, and it optimizes the cleaning based on the acquired information.
Another great aspect of this robot cleaner is the fact that it can capture debris that is 2 microns in size due to its EZ Clean disposable filter bags.
