Types of Automatic Pool Cleaners to Choose From

An automatic pool cleaner is a device that removes foreign matters from your pool without or with minimal supervision. Instead of doing the cleaning manually, having such a device can give so much benefits not only for domestic pool purposes but for companies like resorts. This is because using this type of device not only saves time but effeciency as well.

With automatic pool cleaner, all you need to do to make it perform the cleaning is to plug your pool cleaner in and then turn it on and then let it roam and wait for a couple of hours – and you will notice the result. In fact, you can just leave your pool cleaner – just do your other tasks – alone as this type of cleaner is equipped of high tech features which enable it to perform thhe cleaning.

There three types of automatic pool cleaners – each has its benefits and disadvantages.

The Suction Side Automatic Pool Cleaner

This type of automatic pool cleaner is much cheaper as compared to other types. Suction side pool cleaner is attached to the suction system of pool or the pumps that draw water out of your swimming pool to be filtered. By attaching hose to one of your suction ports, water can just be pumped out and then let the device do the rest of the filtering, straining tasks.

Pressure Side Cleaners

A pressure site cleaner fucntions in the opposite fashion as a suction side cleaner does. This is because pressure site cleaner is connected to the return side of the filter instead of the intake. What gives this device that capacity to clean is the pressure that the filter return gives. This type of cleaner circulates clean and clear water throughout pool while accumulating all the debris inside its filter bag. It is important to note that when the bag is full, it must be emptied as this will make the cleaner ineffective if you don’t empty it as required.

Robotic Pool Cleaners

This type is perhaps one of the most expensive automatic pool cleaners in town. This is known to be a stand-alone device and all you need to do is to plug into an electrical outlet, let it on and then let it do its functions. It has thhe capacity that is closely similar to human as this device is designed to mimic human being in terms of quality in cleaning. Its robotic functions make pools clean. This handy little robot goes around your pool until all the debris are collected.

So, not that you have ideas on automatic pool cleaners, hope you are able to get the one that is ideal for your own pool – and enjoy the cleaning with your cleaning buddy.

Built in – Above Ground Automatic Pool Cleaners Differences and Similarities

Blindly shopping around for a automatic pool cleaner can be a bit overwhelming for a few good reasons. To start with, there are any number of makes and models and each ones maker claims that it is the most efficient and the best deal to be had. Also, they range in price from less than a hundred dollars to up to a few thousand dollars for a top model.

The Three Types of Pool Cleaners

Lets try to simplify things a little and then go from there. Above ground and in ground automatic pool cleaners come in three basic types. Pressure side, suction side and robotic. While each type may function differently from the others, they all accomplish the same thing and that is to clean the main brunt of the debris out of the pools water. The pool ter system then cleans the finer particulate matter  from the pool water.

Suction Side and Pressure Side Systems

Suction side and pressure side automatic pool cleaners each connects to a different end of your pools pump system. A suction side pool cleaner will deposit what it picks up in the pools filter system, while a pressure side system will have its own bag that the debris will be deposited in.

Pressure Side System Can Move

Still one more difference, is that a pressure side pool cleaner will be able to move around the pool, while a suction side system is generally stationary and comes with a skimmer. The pool cleaners that you will see advertised as having “no moving parts” are generally suction side pool cleaners.

Robotic Automatic Pool Cleaners

Robotic pool cleaners are the most expensive and they also will tend to have the most features. You can spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars for a budget model all the way up to a few thousand dollars for a top of the line model. One feature that only robotic pool cleaners can offer is automatic scrub brushes that clean the sides of a concrete pool.
