Best Mid-Range Robotic Pool Cleaners of 2024

Here are the Top Robotic cleaners based on my testing.  I tried each one in various pools and different levels of debris. The ranking is based on many factors and some, of course, are better than others. But there are also factors such as cost, weight, and features such as a remote control and how low they filter down to in particle size known as microns. A standard D.E. pool filter will filter down to 3-5 microns, a cartridge filter down to 10-20 microns -so you get the idea of how well a cleaner will filter and trap debris. So the ranking is based on these factors as well as other reviews from customers who have the cleaner.   No one pays me for my reviews and I don't work for any of the companies so the rankings are as unbiased as they can be.


Here are the top Mid-Range Robotic Pool Cleaners. They may lack some of the bells and whistles of the High-Range cleaners, but they still are loaded with great features to make them a solid purchase.  The price point is more affordable to the average homeowner and there are several models to choose from.

#5 Polaris 7240 Sport

The Polaris 7240 Sport is a great little compact robotic cleaner. When I say compact I mean compact. This thing is tiny and is designed for a smaller pool. It still works just like the larger cleaners but with everything miniaturized. The Cyclonic Debris canister picks up dirt and debris great and the top loading chamber easily snaps out. If you have a smaller pool this would be the perfect cleaner for you.


Pros: Cyclonic Vacuum Technology- Captures debris without losing suction, Navigates Floors and Climbs Walls
Lightweight Handling - Compact design is easy to carry


Cons:  No Cord Swivel
