In a filter that takes about 90 minutes to pick up leaves, hair and sand? Check.

The vacuum cleaner introduces two models of Verro pools-
A cleaning machine that swims to clean up leaves and other sundries.
These robots can be found on www. irobot.
Com, which can automatically traverse pools of up to 50 feet in length and filter up to 5,000 gallons of water per hour.
A long power cord connects them to a standard socket.
As shown in the figure, the $800 Verro 300 was designed for a concrete pool and sprayed water on the surface of the pool to remove algae and silt.
The Verro 1,200, for $600, is designed for vinyl and fiberglass pools and looks more like a miniature tank with a scrub brush included.
Both robots use iRobot\'s cleaning program to ensure that the brush or water spray does not touch anywhere.
They can even move up and down the pool, while reusable filter bags capture floating particles.
It would be nice if they could be trained to get the big chicken.
