This picture doesn't really actually show the robot. Could someone get a better one? 209.74.4.2 15:10, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Ok, I've taken a photo of mine and uploaded it instead. -- Bovineone 00:38, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

I added a video demonstration of the robot. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.51.144.55 (talk) 21:53, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Early Models[edit]

This bit: """ The first suction-side pool cleaner was invented by Roy B. Everson of Chicago in 1937, which he entitled "Swimming Pool Cleaner".[4]

Nineteen years later, the first suction-side pool cleaner was the work of Joseph Eistrup of San Mateo, California, who called his invention simply "Pool Cleaner" """ Does not make sense. How can the first suction-side be invented 19 years after the (original) first? Upon reading the patent of Eistrup for "pool cleaner", it is not evident that it was in fact a suction side cleaner? I might be wrong on this though --Chris Swart (talk) 11:00, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
