Since there no way to get someone to scrub and clean the pool for you on command (yes, slavery is still outlawed!) we can get the next best thing by getting a robotic pool cleaner. Of all the types of automatic pool cleaners out there, the robotic ones are the simplest to use. No assembly or fiddling around with hoses, just plug it in, drop it in (be gentle of course!) and watch it go!
As thorough as any pool man
When it comes to cleaning your pool, a robotic pool cleaner can be as thorough as any pool man, or in some cases even more thorough because robotic pool cleaners don’t complain about the heat, humidity, and long working hours! As long as they’re plugged in and their filter boxes are clean, then they’ll happily chug along scrubbing and cleaning your pool!
Of course, there’s also the added benefit of you saving time and effort in cleaning your pool. A couple of minutes unrolling the cables and plugging it in is all that’s needed to get your robotic pool cleaner started up and going.
A robotic pool cleaner saves you money!
Depending on the size of your pool pump, it can cost you anywhere from $0.15 - $0.50 per hour in electricity costs when you're manually vacuuming your pool. Robotic pool cleaners on the other hand, with all of their bells and whistles, cost only $0.05 per hour to run. While it doesn’t seem like much, it does add up if you look at it on an annual basis! If you’re wondering why we’re comparing costs of running a pump vs a robotic pool cleaner, it’s because manually vacuuming your pool or running a pressure pool cleaner and suction pool cleaner relies on water pressure created by your pool pump!
A robotic pool cleaner protects your pool filters!
Since it has its own filter and filter box, any dirt and debris that is cleaned by your robotic pool cleaner will be collected in the unit itself and won’t go to your main filtration system. This brings with it multiple benefits.
- Robotic pool cleaners will filter out particles down to 2 microns in size! Your standard cartridge filter can filter down to 5 microns while sand filters can filter down to anywhere between 10 and 20 microns, this means clearer water all around! Everything that your pool filters can’t catch, a robotic pool cleaner can take care of.
- Manually vacuuming the pool and using automatic pool cleaners will dump all of the removed dirt and debris into your pool’s filter, while this has been considered part of “normal” pool cleaning, with a robotic pool cleaner this can totally be avoided!
Save money on water and pool chemicals!
This is true especially if you have a sand filter installed in your pool. Since you’re eliminating the need to backwash your sand filter after cleaning, you’re essentially keeping your pool chemicals in your pool instead of flushing them out the system by backwashing. Aside from saving on chemicals, you’re also saving around 5,000 to 7,000 liters of water on an annual basis by using a robotic pool cleaner! To coin a phrase: It's Free money!
Robotic Pool Cleaners are truly set and forget
There’s a bit of a misnomer when talking about automatic pool cleaners like suction pool cleaners and pressure side pool cleaners. Yes, they’re automatic in the sense that they move around by themselves, but you still have to keep an eye on them. Common problems for other automatic pool cleaners include loss of pressure (from loose vacuum plates), getting stuck on corners, tangled up hoses and the like. A robotic pool cleaner on the other hand is truly automatic! Once you plug it in, then that’s it! No need to keep an eye on it. This allows you to do other stuff (or do nothing at all!) while the robotic pool cleaner is doing its job.
