Hey everyone! Today, I’m super excited to share something incredible with you all. I just got a new Aiper Scuba S1 robot pool cleaner that can climb the walls of my pool! Yes, you heard that right. It climbs the walls! Let’s dive into this unboxing and review of the Aiper Scuba S1, and see if it lives up to the hype.

Unboxing Aiper Scuba S1

When I opened the box, I found several components. First, there was the Aiper Scuba S1 itself, which looks sleek and robust and a bit of futuristic

Alongside the robot, there was a user manual, a hook for retrieving the robot from the pool, and a charger. The Scuba S1 doesn’t have traditional wheels but instead uses a tank-like band for movement.

I was a bit concerned about my pool since it has soft walls and a soft floor and it is cheap, unlike solid pools. However, I was eager to see how the robot would perform in this environment. My main worry was whether the robot might damage the soft surfaces, but curiosity got the better of me.

The charging port on the Aiper Scuba S1 is easy to access. Once I connected the charger, the robot started to charge immediately, indicated by a red LED light. The manual mentioned that it takes about four hours to fully charge, so I left it to charge while I prepared the pool for a proper test.

Preparing the Pool

Since my pool was already clean, I decided to make it dirty to test the robot’s capabilities. I added dried leaves, sand, and some dirt. I wanted to see how well the Aiper Scuba S1 could handle a real mess. As I waited for the robot to charge, I read through the manual to understand its features and how to operate it properly.

Understanding the Features

The Aiper Scuba S1 is designed for pools up to 150 square meters (about 1,600 square feet). It has a battery life of up to 150 minutes which is quite impressive, but it even holds more in my tests. It’s also waterproof, which is essential for a pool cleaner, don’t you think?. The robot has four modes: Auto, Floor only, Walls only, and Eco.

In Auto mode, the robot cleans the walls first and then switches to the floor when the battery is at 50%. The Wall mode is specifically for cleaning the walls, and the Floor mode is for cleaning the pool floor. The Eco mode is quite interesting – it cleans the pool for 45 minutes every 48 hours, which is perfect for regular maintenance without much effort.

First Test

Once the Aiper Scuba S1 was fully charged (indicated by solid blue LED light), I placed it in the pool. I was amazed when it started climbing the walls!

The robot first tackles the walls before moving to the floor, thanks to its auto mode. It uses a powerful water stream to push debris towards the center of the pool, making it easier to clean.

The robot was very easy to start. I just had to press and hold the power button for two seconds and it began its cleaning cycle. Watching it climb the walls of my pool was both fascinating and reassuring. It moved smoothly and seemed to have no trouble navigating the soft walls of my pool.

Cleaning Modes

Let’s talk a bit more about the cleaning modes. The Auto mode is my favorite because it’s so comprehensive. In this mode, the robot begins by cleaning the walls, which is often where a lot of algae and grime build up. After it’s done with the walls, it switches to the floor, ensuring a thorough clean.

The Wall mode focuses solely on the walls, which can be handy if you notice the sides of your pool are dirtier than the bottom. Floor mode is straightforward – it cleans the bottom of the pool, which is where most debris tends to settle. Lastly, the Eco mode is great for ongoing maintenance. The robot runs for 45 minutes every two days, keeping your pool consistently clean with minimal effort on your part.


The Aiper Scuba S1 performed brilliantly. It climbed the walls effortlessly and cleaned the pool thoroughly.

Watching the robot in action was like seeing a miniature tank methodically covering every inch of the pool. It didn’t miss a spot, and I was particularly impressed with how it handled the debris I added. The leaves (on the bottom of the pool), sand, and dirt were no match for the Scuba S1. It’s clear that this robot is designed to tackle even the toughest pool cleaning tasks.

Maintaining the Robot

The suction power was impressive initially, but after two hours, the filter was quite dirty, which reduced its efficiency. This was evident as the suction power had decreased.

I decided to get the Scuba S1 out of the water and I opened the top cover. I was amazed at how much debris it had collected. The filter was full of sand, leaves, and dirt. Cleaning the filter was straightforward – just remove it, empty the debris, and rinse it with water.

For those who worry about maintenance, the Scuba S1 makes it easy. Regularly cleaning the filter ensures the robot runs at peak efficiency, and the manual provides clear instructions on how to care for the device. Plus, the Eco mode keeps your pool clean with minimal intervention, which is a huge time-saver.

Final Thoughts

After the filter cleaning the suction power goes back to normal and my Scuba S1 finished the pool cleaning in no time and it was spotless. No sign of dirt, sand or anything else on the floor, in corners or walls.

The Aiper Scuba S1 is a fantastic robot pool cleaner. It can handle all types of pools, except for infinity pools, which is a minor limitation (at least for as I don’t have such a pool). The battery life is excellent, and the ability to climb walls is a game-changer. I wish it had smart home integration for notifications, but overall, it’s an amazing product.

Where to Buy?

If you’re looking for an efficient and reliable pool cleaner, the Aiper Scuba S1 is a great choice. Its wall-climbing ability, powerful suction, and various cleaning modes make it a versatile tool for maintaining a spotless pool.
