Where Do You Live
I have an architecturally designed pool with eight right-angle corners. My previous cleaner, a Hayward, would hang up in the corners for days until I pulled it out. Then it was minutes before it was hung up again. The MX8 has not gotten hung up since it was installed three months ago. It cleans great and does the sides all the way up to the tile. When the MX8 first came out it had bad reviews because a simple part failed quickly. Zodiac has redesigned the part and the new models are fantastic. This is care-free (once your pool man sets it up correctly) just the way you want an automatic pool cleaner to be. Reliable, automatic and thorough.
