    A Beautiful place!
    I don't like it. Reason being that it may pick up sand at the bottom just like a normal manual glass cleaner and scratch your glass while you watch the rugby :whistling:
    If I do it myself, I know where to stop :)

    nice gadget..we all did the manual thing with the magnet cleaners...but honestly i find that the blade scrubber works better...i am just asking wont this end up like the magnet scrubber not doing a too good of a cleaning as well..?

    Sounds like the perfect gadget for incredibly lazy people. Seriously doubt it's gonna remove coralline. It's probably going to pick up sand and scratch the glass, or just leave a strip of algae along the bottom.

    I covered this article about a year ago....
    At this stage they are taking pre-orders from customers before selling to the retail shops. But it is limited to tanks with a max thickness of 10mm glass.

    I cant justify buying this. i just know the guy who is selling them. Don't think he is making profit either.
    It's just obsenely expensive for something to clean a glass. It take me 5 min every 10 days. for 3 panes.
    And that's 2m x 600mm x 600mm.

    Better way to do this is reduce phosphates SAVe the RRRRAndDela's :)

    Stick the outside piece of your magnet to a radio controlled toy and put the other part inside. The magnets keep the little car suspended and the rubber wheels move it around. AND you have a new toy to play with(yup i know i think too much)

    OK, will wire one together, can I come and test it at your place? ;)

    Always wanted one, but it has to go around corners.

    Suspect it has a sensor that checks for the bottom.
