Pool Cleaner FAQs
Save yourself the time and effort in your pool cleaning tasks by investing in a good automatic pool cleaner. Whether it be a Robotic Pool Cleaner, Suction Pool Cleaner, or a Pressure Pool Cleaner, you really can’t go wrong. It’s just a matter of cost versus convenience.
How do pool cleaners work?
Suction Pool Cleaners
These cleaners use the suction power of your pool’s main filtration pump to vacuum in dirt and debris. Unlike pressure pool cleaners, these automatic pool cleaners can only handle light to medium debris load so you’ll have to spend a couple of minutes scooping out large pieces of debris or leaves.
Note: Ensure that you have enough suction power to run a suction-side pool cleaner. Undersized pool pumps will have trouble creating enough suction to properly create the suction for the cleaner to work.
Robotic Pool Cleaners
These automatic pool cleaners are the future in pool cleaning! They’re self-powered, meaning you don’t have to worry about pool pump capacities or booster pumps for them to work. Not only that, they also have built-in filter compartments that filter out your pool water while scrubbing and collecting debris.
Pressure Pool Cleaners
These automatic pool cleaners utilize the pressure from the return jets of your pool to function properly. These pressure-side pool cleaners require special plumbing and a booster pump for them to get the required water pressure to function. They have their own bag to catch dirt and debris, sparing your pool’s filtration system from clogging up. Pressure pool cleaners are the most robust pool cleaners and can handle anything you throw at it, even massive amounts of leaves and debris, saving you the time and effort of scooping out leaves and debris from your pool.
Of course, this performance comes at a price. A good booster pump can set you back about a thousand dollars plus the cost for plumbing will depend on your pool's current state.
Which pool cleaner should you buy?
That ultimately depends on your budget and the amount of work you're willing to put into maintaining your pool. The more bells and whistles your cleaner has, the less work for you.
