This popular robot will clean your pool like a pro — and it's 40% off

What is it?

What's the worst part of owning a pool? Easy: cleaning it. It's a shame that no one has made a Roomba for pools yet. Except wait — they have! It's the Aiper Seagull SE Robotic Pool Cleaner, and it will run around the bottom of your pool vacuuming up loose debris, leaves and other gunk that you don't want to swim with or step on (yuck!).

This little robot will clean your pool like a pro.

$180 at Amazon

Why is this a good deal?

Fall is almost here, which means you have precious little time left to spend in the pool. Don't waste that time cleaning it! Originally $300, you can get the Aiper Seagull SE Robotic Pool Cleaner for just $180.

Why do I need this?

Like any other robot vacuum, all you have to do is set this little guy loose in the pool and it will take care of the mess for you. Once turned on, it'll clean for up to an hour and a half. It's ideal for use in above-ground pools as large as 33 feet in diameter.

The Seagull SE has two dual-drive motors that let it power its way through the water and collect any wayward trash and dirt. It's quiet, too, so you can run it while using the pool without distraction. The filter tray is reusable and simple to clean: just blast it off with a water hose and you're good to go. When the cleaning is done, you don't have to dive into the pool to grab the Seagull SE — the included hook makes it easy to fish it out of the water.

Just to be clear: It's completely cordless. Place it on its charger when it's done, and it will be ready to clean again in just 2.5 hours. There are four LEDs on the robot to let you know things like how much juice is left or if the filter needs to be cleaned. Maybe the coolest feature is that it includes a chemical dispenser so you can keep the pool balanced and purified without dumping it in yourself. Goodbye, awful chlorine smell.

What reviewers say

We all have better things to do than cleaning the pool. More than 7,000 five-star fans leave that chore up to the Aiper Seagull SE Robotic Pool Cleaner.

"Makes my life much easier," said one verified reviewer. "This little guy is exactly what I needed. If, like me, the thought of messing with pool equipment and manually cleaning your pool is something you’d just rather not do, then look no further! ... Not a finger need be lifted to clean your pool, except to turn the little guy on and he’s off to work. ... Completely recommend!"

"Why didn't I get this sooner?" quipped another shopper. "Works exactly as it is supposed to. Just drop it in the pool and go to lunch or shopping; when you get back your pool is clean. I live in a wooded area and get a lot of leaves and debris from the trees. This has picked up everything so far. So long, messy hoses."

If you own a particularly large pool and need an equally powerful vac to handle the dirtiest of jobs, Aiper has another model for you: the Seagull Pro. Said one fan: "I debated on whether to get another pressure side cleaner or a robotic one. After much deliberation, I finally decided I would give this one a try. So glad I did. I run this every day, even when the pool looks clean, and somehow it finds dirt/debris. I have a 45,000-gallon in-ground pool with a vinyl liner and I was amazed that it can completely cover the pool and climb the walls in a single charge."

"Great time saver. Just brush a couple times a week and the robot does the rest! Excellent Customer Service! Easy to use and easy to clean. Downside is it doesn’t get all the small debris but will do about 90%," said one homeowner.

Toss your old pool cleaning supplies. This guy doesn't need them.
