Robotic Pool Cleaner Repairs

Robotic Pool Cleaners are the latest iteration in pool cleaning technology. A device that can scrub the walls of the pool and vacuum the swimming pool at the same time is very attractive for the Australian pool owner.

How to correctly use a Robotic Pool Cleaner

Preventative maintenance is key when dealing with robotic pool cleaners, below is a few points our technicians have found work correctly and prevent unnecessary wear to the pool cleaner.

  1. The more often the cleaner is used the less the pool filter will get clogged and full of debris.
  2. If the swimming pool is especially dirty, remove larger pieces of debris using a net, pool skim or any other cleaning tool available.
  3. Remove any thermometers, toys and other objects that will stop the cleaner from working or damage the cleaner.
  4. Remove the cleaner from the swimming pool after use, this is to stop exposure to the complex electronics within the pool cleaner main body.
  5. When storing the cleaner out of the water make sure it is dry before placing it in the storage bag or caddy.
  6. Clean the basket after every use.
  7. Do not leave the cleaner or control box in direct sunlight, direct sunlight will damage the finish of the cleaner and the touch pads.
  8. If the behavior of the cleaner is no correct the cable might be tangled inside the cable sleeve, lay the cable out in the sun from time to time and until it resumes its original shape.

Benefits of Robotic Pool Cleaners

  1. Less stress on the filtration system.
  2. The pool can be cleaned without running the pool pump and costing more energy than necessary.
  3. Since the robotic cleaner should be removed after use there are no pipes in the pool to be removed when wanting to swim.
  4. Less power to run than conventional pool cleaners even up to a third of the power requirements.
  5. Scrubs the walls of the pool and vacuums.
  6. Depending on the brand and model some cleaners can be set on a timer for an extremely thorough pool cleaner.

Common Replacement Parts

If the robotic pool cleaner has not had a critical fault the first part to wear or need replacing is the filters or catcher. Tyres may also need replacing depending on the finish of the pool, pebblecrete more frequently than other types of pool finish.

Motors are hard to damage to the point of fusion (unable to turn) but can be diagnosed and replaced quite quickly. Control boxes are fragile electronics and if left and uncared for can be a complete replacement.


We service and repair all popular brands of robotic pool cleaners, Zodiac, Polaris, Astral, Dolphin Maytronics. Depending on availability of parts repairs normally take between 2 - 4 working days.
