Connection failures

I have 5 eeros, 1 2nd gen pro, 2 1st gen pros, and 2 beacons. The pros are all wired over Ethernet. And my network commonly supports 40-60 devices.  In general this works okay. But more often then not I will need to turn WiFi off and on on any device moved within the house. For example taking my iPad from the kitchen to living room, will require me to turn off then on the WiFi on the iPad. If I don’t then the iPad will show full bars but won’t be able to send or receive data on the network. In addition at least once a week I need to do a full restart of all the eeros since random eeros will stop forwarding traffic. I can’t ping between devices on my network.  I’ve tried deleting the network, resetting everything to factory, and starting over didn’t help. I bought a 2.4/5ghz spectrum analyzer and when I need to reboot I can see several eeros maxing out the radio band even though no devices are transmitting. I contacted eero support twice, I call the first time, but the very nice tech was clear out of his depth with this problem and couldn’t help.  The second I emailed and never got a response. I’m hoping the community can help. So thoughts or suggestions?

My network is mostly Apple devices, MacBooks, iphones, iPads, Apple TV’s, with some hardwired PCs, and 20-30 smart switches/HomeKit devices. My gut tells the roaming issue is because the Apple devices can almost see the far away eero and aren’t forced to move to a closer stronger signal. I have no idea why I have to restart the eeros so often. 

Sorry for the wall of text.
