A first on the Dutch market: RoboSnail
The RoboSnail is an automatic magnetic window cleaner, easy to install and no more worrying about.
The RoboSnail cleans the window once every 24 hours.
Years of research and development have preceded it, the end product consists of state-of-the-art technology, high quality components and is very solid.
The RoboSnail is user-friendly and easy to operate.
The product is firmly held by magnets, such as with a regular magnetic cleaner and is placed on both sides of the aquarium window.
The user must first thoroughly clean the window, on the outside (to ensure good traction of the unit) and then complete a simple installation program. After having completed these two steps, the RoboSnail is ready to go!
The RoboSnail can detect the edges above, left and right of the aquarium and thus calculates the area to be cleaned. The edge locations and associated distances are then stored in the internal memory for future cleaning. Once complete, it returns to the home base location for charging, where it remains until the next cleaning cycle begins.
The RoboSnail will activate itself every 24 hours after the last cleaning cycle. You can always instruct RoboSnail to clean the window at the touch of a button. 24 hours after this assignment, RoboSnail starts its automatic cycle again.
Why the RoboSnail works:
The RoboSnail is an automated glass cleaner, which prevents algae build up on the internal surface of the aquarium. This is achieved by RoboSnail’s unique ability to clean the surface of the aquarium once a day without the user’s intervention. The constant preventive cleaning stops algae from occupying the aquarium glass. Usually in an aquarium algae growth is almost invisible on the window, but it grows slowly on the glass surfaces, because this happens gradually it becomes increasingly difficult to remove it. Long periods of neglect often result in stubborn algae forms, or a hazy, unsightly buildup, which can be found in all types of aquariums. More and more effort is needed to remove these and can result in scratching of the aquarium glass and longer, more difficult cleaning sessions.
Advantages of using the RoboSnail:
Never worry about cleaning the window where the RoboSnail is installed.
RoboSnail can also be installed on the back wall, provided there is a 7 cm gap between the aquarium and the wall, and the back wall in the aquarium must also be 3 cm free, which is also sensible in order to guarantee, among other things, the flow behind the reef.
