Pool-cleaner robots

Home vacuum robot maker iRobot (NASDAQ: IRBT) has launched two new pool-cleaner robots for home use. The two robots, Verro 300 and Verro 600, are available now for $800 and $1200. The 300 model uses water jet and vacuum to suck up debris from the pool. The Verro 600 uses brushes along with the vacuum and filter. Drop the robot into the water and it will clean the pool in 60 to 90 minutes. The robots require a power umbilical plugged in but do not need any hose connection to the pool's pump. iRobot worked with the Aqua Products Group companies to develop their robots.

Another makers of pool cleaner robots are Maytronics (Isreal), Weda (Sweden), Aquabot (USA), Ozonex (France).
