COMPARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF POOL CLEANERS

A good filtration system isn’t the only key to keeping your pool water pristine. An automatic pool cleaner removes a great deal of debris from your pool’s floor and some from your pool walls as well.

Use the following cleaner PRO’s and Cons’ pages, but could we have them set up design to match Trident type graphics.

But how do you know which one will be right for your pool?

Here’s a rundown of the features and pros and cons of each type of automatic pool cleaner.

SUCTION

Pros:

DOUBLE SUCTION FUNCTION
While it sucks debris off the bottom of the pool, it is also sucking water through the filtration system, turning over more water in a shorter amount of time

FILTERING
Can remove finer particles because it is attached to your filter

LOW COST
Cheapest pool cleaner option

NO EFFORT
Easy to install and use

 

Cons:

RESTRICTED
There are various restrictions of suction cleaners, including the fact that they are fitted into a pool’s skimmer, reducing the pool’s skimming ability to clean the debris at the surface of the pool water and also reducing its turnover by adding a restriction to its pool circulation. The debris goes straight to the filtration system, which requires backwashing or maintenance

HIGH SPEED REQUIRED
To operate the cleaner effectively, the pool pump needs to operate at higher speeds, negating any energy savings from the use of variable speed pumps

ROBOTIC

Pros:

ECONOMICAL
Today’s top-of-the-line robotic cleaners combine user-friendly operation with water, energy and chemical conservation features

SAVE ENERGY
Requires minimal electrical power to operate its inbuilt pump and motor

INDEPENDENT CIRCULATION
Independent to the pump and filter system, allowing better circulation of water

EASY SKIMMING
It will free up the skimmer box and enable leaves to be skimmed from the surface of the pool

REMOTE CONTROL
Some can be controlled by remote control to allow you to guide it those hard to clean spots

SCRUBBING BRUSHES
Equipped with scrubbing brushes, so not only do they vacuum the pool’s floor and/or walls, but they also scrub the actual surface, regardless of whether it’s vinyl, fibreglass or concrete

MINIMAL EFFORT
Minimal maintenance and effort on your part

WATER CIRCULATION
Helps to circulate water through the pool, resulting in less algae growth and improved water chemistry

 

Cons:

INVESTMENT
Most expensive type of cleaner (prices starting from $1000 to over $2000)

EXTRA EFFORTS REQUIRED
It’s recommended by manufacturers that you remove the cleaner after each use, the cleaner’s internal filter bag or cartridge require emptying and cleaning, the cleaner’s cable needs to be wound up and stored correctly after each operation

PRESSURE

Pros:

CAN HANDLE MANY TREES
Most suited to a pool located underneath a large number of overhanging trees

INDEPENDENT DIRTBAG
It deposits dirt and debris into its own bag, which means debris is not deposited in the skimmer or pool filter

EASY SKIMMING
It will free up the skimmer box and enable leaves to be skimmed from the surface of the pool

QUICK
The pressure cleaner is a very quick and efficient way to clean the pool

AFFORDABLE
Mid-range pricing

WATER CIRCULATION
Helps to circulate water through the pool, resulting in less algae growth and improved water chemistry

 

Cons:

ONLY WATER
Doesn’t scrub the pool’s floor or walls

COARSE FILTER
Cannot filter small particles through the bag

REQUIRES EXTRA ENERGY
Not only requires the normal filtration system to be operating, but also requires the addition of a pressure booster pump. This significantly increases energy consumption and ultimately cost
