Aquabot Pura 4XT Robotic Pool Cleaner Guide
Your new Pura 4XT is ready to go right out of the box. All you need is the power supply and the robot itself. Make sure that you place the power supply 10 to 12 feet away from the pool and plug the power chord going from the power supply to the robot into the front of the power supply.
Before we put the cleaner into the pool make sure that the pin located underneath is securely attached. This pin sets the angle of the axels on the cleaner ensuring that the robot will cover the maximum amount of area at the bottom of your pool. Simply locate the pin, remove it, and adjust how you would like. Always make sure that the pin gets secured at a point on the robot that is below where the axel is so that it’s sitting on the pin. Once it’s adjusted how you like, it’s time to put it in the pool!
Grab the robot by the handle and start to submerge, getting rid of air bubbles. These bubbles can affect the robot’s buoyancy so eliminating them helps the robot’s operation. Once they are gone the robot will sink to the bottom of the pool. At this time also make sure that there is enough of the cable in the pool so that the robot can move and operate efficiently but not enough to risk tangling.
With the robot now ready to go and already in the water, it’s time to plug in the power supply to a regular GCI outlet with the cord going to the robot already connected at the front of the power supply. You can now press the circular power button located in the middle of the controls. By default, the large pool selection should come on but if you had a smaller pool you could press the “Select” button to drop it down. The Pura 4XT also has the ability to run past the typical cleaning cycle just press the external timer button. This will require you to have an external timer connected which will run until you shut it off or the timer runs out.
The pool cleaner is now running its cycle and vacuuming up all of the debris in your pool. The Aquabot Pura 4XT provides optimal pool water mixing helping to reduce chemicals needed resulting in a healthier clean. This robot utilizes a swivel cord to alleviate any chance of a tangle and cleans an average size pool in just under two hours.
When the robot finishes or you want to remove it, go ahead and turn the power supply off and disconnect the robot’s power supply before taking the robot out of the pool. At this point you can gently pull the robot’s cable pulling it closer to the surface where you can reach out and grab the handle. Pick up the robot out of the water allowing time for the water to drain out and back into the pool causing the robot to become lighter.
To access the robot’s filter basket, find the two tabs located on the top the cleaner. Go ahead and depress them while grabbing the side handles and firmly remove the entire top of the robot. Inside you will find the filter basket. Just lift it right out from where it is sitting.
On one side of the top of the basket is another tab that you can press down and open the lid on the basket. Depending on how much debris is in the basket, you may want to rinse it off, preferably away from the pool area. When it comes time to put the basket back in the robot there’s no need to worry because with the lid side up it actually fits back in either direction just make sure it’s not upside down. In putting the top of the robot back on you will find that there is only one way to accomplish this as the tabs only align in one direction. If you don’t see how they fit just flip it around and try the other way. It should pop right back in easily for the next cleaning cycle.
The Aquabot Pura 4XT works best for above ground pools and small in-ground pools. It’s top loading filter bag filters down to 2 microns while cleaning vinyl, gunite, fiberglass and tile in as little as 1 to 2 hours. The robot has a 2 Year Bumper to Bumper Warranty Included as well. Visit our website at the link below to find out more and to purchase.
