Should You Buy a Used /
4 Reasons to be Wary of buying
Used Aquabot or a Refurbished
Aquabot . . .
Are you sure the used Aquabot works?
Will you be able to
test the Aquabot to make sure it works? Even then, how will you know
that the performance measures up to that of a brand new Aquabot? It is
not necessarily like buying a car, where you can take it on a test
drive beforehand. Furthermore, most pool companies might potentially be
uncomfortable evaluating someone else’s used Aquabot for you,
especially if they’d rather sell you a brand new Aquabot. Also, if the
pool company is selling you their own used or refurbished Aquabot, it’s
the same problem as buying a used car from a used car dealer: it’s hard
to trust them to be completely truthful about it.
Why would someone else want to be selling the Aquabot anyways?
Why would someone
want to get rid of an automatic pool cleaner? My thinking is, they
either want a better one or it’s not working right. Either way, it
should get you thinking. If the Aquabot isn’t good enough for them, why
would it be good enough for you? If they’re needing a better model,
maybe you should consider whether you’d want a model up, too. This is,
of course, assuming nothing on the Aquabot needs to be reworked,
repaired or replaced.
Remember parts might just be expensive.
Even if you know that
the used Aquabot is going to need a couple of parts, they’re probably
going to be more expensive than you would think. To go back to the car
analogy, once you have a cleaner you’re locked into buying the
company’s replacement parts. Unlike cars, though, there are no generic
manufacturers. Your best bet will be to order from a company off the
Be ware of a deal that’s too good to be true.
Maybe you’ve found a
killer deal on a used or refurbished Aquabot, what now? It’s kind of a
catch 22, because the deal’s so good but maybe there’s a reason that
the Aquabot is priced so cheap. At least with a new Aquabot, you know
it’s new. At least with a new Aquobot, you know it's new.
