Pool Cleaners – Easier pool cleaning and maintenance
Pool cleaners are an essential piece of equipment to help in the process of day to day pool cleaning. As mentioned there are many other areas that need to be addressed that we can help with, however having a manual, automatic or robotic pool cleaner is a great start.
Manual Pool Cleaners
The most budget option is a manual vacuum cleaner. These are very effective however are extremely time-consuming and will make your pool cleaning job tedious. These units are required to be guided around the pool manually and there is no self-cleaning happening. Manual pool cleaners comprise of a vacuum head that’s fitted to a tele-pole. The units are efficient and affordable however expect to put in a fair amount of work to complete the pool cleaning process.
Automatic Pool Cleaners
Automatic pool cleaners will save you loads of time in that you won’t have to skim, brush or vacuum the pool much yourself. The device does need to be fitted manually however once this is done there is little ongoing work to enable the pool cleaning process which gives you more time for swimming.
The two types of cleaners are:
Suction-Side Pool cleaners
These help strain the water through the pools skimmer basket and filter and are attached with a hose to the pools circulation system. A great machine that tracks around the pool bottom and even up the walls while vacuuming any debris and dirt it finds.
Pressure-Side Pool cleaners
Pressure is used by these cleaners to move around the bottom and up the walls. A great option since they have their own filter bag and reduce wear and tear on your pool cleaning filter. These units are best used for pools that contain larger debris like twigs, leaves, and bark.
Robotic Pool Cleaners
If your budget permits, the best option by far is a robotic pool cleaner such as a Zodiac or Kreepy Krauly. These intelligent robots not only do a great job of pool cleaning, they also require the least amount of attention. The upfront costs are larger, however, they will deliver savings on power, water, and chemicals in the long run. Handling any type of debris or dirt, these guys will vacuum the waste straight into their own pool filter, circulating water and guaranteeing a fresher swim. Smart technology also means that the robot can be programmed to handle any shape and size pool.
