Our Opinion + A year later with the Pentair Rebel 2
Original Opinion: The Rebel® 2 cleaner packs amazing performance into a compact, easy-to-use package. Complete with a 3-year warranty, this is our top pick of Automatic Suction Pool Cleaners, we here at Mr Pool Man personally use these in our pools and couldn't recommend a better cleaner for all pool types!
The Pentair Rebel 2: A year after, the review
After spending a year with the Pentair Rebel 2, we're still as in love with it as we were when we first got it. It still cleans the pool as it was when it was brand new but we did notice a little bit of a slowdown and some minor glitches a year down, so we decided to give it a tune up. This is expected of everything with a lot of moving parts, especially those that are exposed to pool chemicals, so this wasn't an issue for us. After getting a tune-up kit and about 30 minutes of tinkering (it's all very DIY-friendly so nothing to worry about) our Penter Rebel 2 was as good as new!
If you're thinking of upgrading your current pool cleaner, then the Pentair Rebel 2 is the perfect choice between price and functionality. It is the closest thing you can get to a robotic pool cleaner like the Zodiac TX30 Tornax Robotic pool cleaner at half the price!
