How to Purchase the Best Robotic Pool Cleaner
A robotic pool cleaner is a great way to keep your pool clean, but it’s also an investment for you and your family. Robotic pool cleaners keep your family’s swim area cleaner and healthier with far less work needed on your part. The purchasing process for your ideal robotic pool cleaner may seem daunting as there are many options to choose from. We have some great advice to alleviate worries and help you purchase a great robot for your backyard pool.
Value – Robots purchased through E-Z Test Pool Supplies offer the best value to you the consumer. We see the whole product, offer it at a competitive price, and only sell robots that are durable, rugged, trusted, and get the job done. We want to help protect your investment with models that are easy to maintain while also considering the long-term cost of replacing wearable parts. Our robotic pool cleaners that we have chosen to sell, represent the best value within the industry.
Quality – Our robotic pool cleaners are of quality. Quality materials, thoughtful design, and expert craftsmanship all equate to value and longevity. If it feels flimsy and cheap then it probably is. Price is not always a clear indication of quality. There are products on the market that are marketed well but have subpar brushes that could even end up damaging your pool. Replaceable parts that wear over time are par for the course but parts that you can actually get your hands on and that work is a whole different thing. Asking questions and doing the research before investing will pay off in the long run. E-Z Test Pool Supplies has a very extensive replacement parts department. Our team is ready and willing to help when the time comes.
Warranty – It’s very important that we are able to offer our customers a solid warranty on our pool robots sold. The length can vary a bit from a retail environment to an online space, but overall, the products that we sell are being stood behind by their manufacturer. If anything was to go wrong with your cleaner, then you are covered by the manufacturer for a certain amount of time. We also have teamed up with Extend to offer optional extended warranties to really lock in that extra layer of protection.
Technology – Our robotic pool cleaner manufacturers are constantly on the leading edge of technology. Our partners are constantly finding new ways to optimize cleaning performance, dialing in a better user experience and challenging the status quo on getting pools clean. The robots that we sell offer varying degrees of programmable features in order to operate correctly and efficiently. Various amounts of sensors are able to help the robot navigate and some of the latest models can even be controlled via Bluetooth on your smartphone. Not all available robots on the market have integrated technology like this and some have it, but it isn’t reliable.
Customer Service – Responsive companies that can provide answers are very important to our organization. We see value in speaking to a real pool person and this is reflected not only in our own customer service department, but also is generally how our partner companies handle their interactions as well. Speaking to a customer service rep. that is clearly overseas and not knowledgeable within the industry is not helpful. Doing your research on other customer experiences in the form of reviews and also checking out if the manufacturer provides contact info for a customer service department is key.
Reputable – Many of the robotic pool cleaner manufacturers that we sell have extensive backgrounds that are full of rich history in the pool industry. You won’t find many companies that we decide to go with that are new to the industry. We want our customers to have current products from companies that are tried and tested. We also pride ourselves in being reputable. We have more than 30 years in the swimming pool industry and our website reviews along with our Google reviews tend to speak for themselves.
