It can clean and brush extremely well the floor and walls of your swimming pool. Unfortunately, it cannot climb steps. There are 2 cleaning modes that help you obtain wonderful results.

Ease of Use

Thanks to the ultra quick-drain system that it comes with, a lightweight removal from the pool is possible. You need to slowly pull the blue cord to get the device to the pool surface and near the edge of the pool. Reach down and grasp the handle of the robotic pool cleaner in order to remove it from the pool. Some of its particularities are:

  • Weight – This model is very easy to move from place to place due to its lightweight design and convenient handle
  • Safe – You don’t have to supervise this model while it’s operating due to the fact that it’s ETL, CSA, and CE approved for safety
  • Filter bag – The bag is large and capable of holding a large amount of dirt so you don’t have to constantly change it

What you need to do is to plug the power supply into the GFCI or ELI protected outlet and then plug in the connector from it into the socket. Once you do so you must place the robot pool cleaner into your swimming pool and rock it from side to side in order to release any trapped air. It will quickly sink to the bottom of the pool and do its job. Do not forget to choose the desired cycle. The device will actually shut itself down automatically after the selected cycle has been completed.

Moreover, due to the smart navigation that calculates the shortest path, the energy consumption will be significantly reduced. Also, the cleaner turns off automatically so energy waste will be prevented. We did not find any information regarding the exact energy consumption.

Final Thoughts

If you are always on the run, then the NC52 is the right pool cleaner for you. The fast 1-hour cleaning mode that it allows you to opt for makes it possible to get the pool clean fast in case you have guests over and they announce of their presence at the last minute. But what impressed us the most when reviewing this cleaner was not the quick cycle alone as there are other important highlights to be mentioned as well. We must underline the usefulness of the smart navigation function of the robot again as it not only delivers shorter pool cleaning times but because it adds to the energy efficiency of the product as well. Always taking the shortest cleaning route possible when cleaning the water and surfaces of the pool, this robot is hard to beat when it comes to low operational costs. All in all, it is an option worth taking into consideration and one that we strongly recommend to people who own pools of up to 40 feet in length.
