New iRobots scrub your pool clean

updated 08:10 am EDT, Tue April 10, 2007

iRobot Verro

iRobot this morning unveiled a pair of robots that take its philosophy to backyard pools. The Verro 300 (pictured) and Verro 600 each crawl below the waterline, automatically vacuuming up dirt and even bacteria that might accumulate in the pool. Either is also capable of cleaning the walls and stairs that most automatic systems miss, iRobot says. An average run will complete an entire cleaning in 60 to 90 minutes with almost no human interaction involved.

The choice of model depends on the nature of the pool: the Verro 300 ($800) is best for harder surfaces like concrete and uses a hydro-jet to blast the pool clean, while the Verro 600 ($1,200) has brushes better-suited to scrubbing tile or vinyl. The two iRobot models should be available today.
