POOL CLEANER REVIEWS EVALUATION
The Aquabot Turbo T4RC was very nearly our top pick, but it came in a close second for the sole reason of a higher price tag compared to the Turbo T2.
The Turbo T4RC is almost identical to the Aquabot Turbo T2, except for the fact that it sports a handy remote-control unit excellent for spot-cleaning certain areas of the pool when you prefer to do so. We found this handy to have when we had just a few areas in the pool that needed cleaning attention. Instead of setting it to a timer and letting it clean the entire pool, we used the remote-control feature to pilot the unit to those specific areas. Though the remote control is definitely not a necessity for cleaning, it is a nice luxury to have in a pool cleaner.
The Aquabot Turbo T4RC has the longest power cord reaching 75’ in length. This comes in handy especially for larger pools or situations where the transformer box is placed further away than normal from the pool. The cord is made from buoyant thermoplastic rubber and non-corroding Kevlar. This reassures durability while creating a floating cord which won’t get caught up in the pool’s cleaning path. The buoyancy factor also aids in helping the Turbo T4RC make its full climb of the sides up to the water line.
Like the Turbo T2, the T4RC has the 1-7 hour adjustable timer feature with an automatic 2-hour shut-off timer for the continuous mode. If you have the timer set, you can program your cleaner to run consistently anywhere from 1-7 hours. If you prefer to run your cleaner without the timer set, the 2-hour shut-off timer will activate to prevent over-usage and to efficiently save on energy. Weighing in at about 19lbs, the T4RC is rated to clean your average-sized pool in about 1 hour and cost about 5 cents per cycle. You can’t hire a pool company to do it any cheaper and why would you if you can save money and have a robot do it for you?
The Aquabot Turbo T4RC is built with the most advanced navigation technologies. Inside the computer is a sensory incline chip which is designed to help tell the robot where to go, which direction to climb, and when it is approaching something like a side wall, pool steps, ladders or the main drain. Along with superior navigation abilities, the T4RC is built using the highest quality brushes identical to the Turbo T2. The quad-brushes are designed to provide a thorough cleaning motion while eliminating up to 85% of normal wear and tear that other single- brush units experience repetitively. Power washing jets that are located on the bottom of the cleaner help blast away dirt and grime from those tricky corners and we were surprised to find how good it actually worked.
The Turbo T4RC is very unique because it is the only Aquabot that has a 4-direction dual-drive axle. This feature is very intriguing especially when watching the unit move. The 4-direction refers to the way that it cleans and moves around your pool. If you picture someone mowing your lawn creating a neatly cut pattern, that is what the cleaning routine is slightly comparable to.
If you’re happy with a pool cleaner and don’t feel you need a remote-controlled unit, the T2 may be the better fit for you. If you want the top Aquabot with remote features for spot cleaning, along with the maximum efficiency, plus a long 4 year warranty, check the T4RC out. The price is a bit higher than the T2, though it is well worth the value.
