5) Unravel Your Robot Cable
If your robot cable becomes twisted, disconnect it from the robots power supply and extend it out in the sun to remove any kinks or damage to the cable. Roll the cable up in a Large loop to avoid the cable from twisting up in the pool.
Maintaining your cable correctly can help avoid expensive robotic pool cleaner repair bills. The cable is made up of fine wires and if not treated well and rolled up loosely can kink causing imperfections in the cable.
One of the most common failures with robots is lead failure. These failures are easily avoidable if the lead is carefully maintained.
Some robots like the Zodiac have a list system which brings the robot to the waterline when you wish to remove the robot from your pool. This means you can avoid pulling the robotic pool cleaner out of the pool by the cable which puts load onto the electrical connectors where the cable meets the robot.
Undoing the lead from the power supply when rolling up the lead can help twisting or strain at the plug. This is another thing to consider when removing the robot from the pool.
