Gadgets: Hassle-free robotic Aiper Seagull 600 a must-have for pool owners


Published in Science & Technology News

If you’re a pool owner and want to vacuum it yourself, there’s no need to read on. Otherwise, for owners who want a pool cleaned with a cordless, robotic pool cleaner, the hassle-free Aiper Seagull 600 is a must-have.

A robotic pool cleaner is a technology category I’ve never dipped into until trying the Seagull 600, and I’m hooked with how easy it is to use and clean. To test it, I tossed a bunch of leaves, sand and small sticks into my pool the night before my initial test, giving them enough time to sink to the bottom. This also gave the pool vacuum enough time to charge.

First thing in the morning, after powering it on with the press of the bottom side button, I lowered it into the pool with the supplied retrieving hook. The hook has the standard attachment to connect to any skimmer pole. A few hours later, the pool was 100% clean. It missed nothing.

Once the vacuuming was completed, the hook removed the Seagull 600 from the bottom. The self-parking feature sets the vacuum underwater at the end of the pool for easy removal.

A nice thing about the pool IPX8 waterproof-rated robotic vacuum setup is there are no cords, hoses or anything to attach and use. For the most part, you charge the 6.6-pound 13-by-13-by-9.1-inch unit, and it is ready for the next round of dirt.

Inside the Aiper Seagull 600 is a 2600mAh rechargeable battery, which produces 30 watts of power for the quiet dual drive motors. Charging takes just under four hours to get 50 minutes of runtime. The ideal pool size is any shape up to 538 square feet and runs at 52.5 feet per minute. The coverage area is on flat floors and will not climb walls or steps.


The vacuum has suction to remove debris, sand, grass clippings, leaves, etc., and two scrapers are included. There are four wheels on the bottom, and the left and right wheels are fixed. The front and back wheels are adjustable for different paths.

Cleaning the Aiper Seagull 600 is straightforward. Open the clips and remove the top cover to expose and remove the filter tray for a hosing. All the dirt the vacuum captured will be sitting in the tray and chassis. It takes seconds to put the filter back in and close the clips.

Aiper recommends not operating the cleaner when people are in the pool.

Cleaning a pool has never been so easy. Just drop it in, grab a lounge chair, sit and watch.
