Automatic Pool Cleaners

Need an Automatic Pool cleaner to take some or the headache out of keeping the pool clean?

With winter settling in the last thing you want to do on the weekends is clean the pool, but leaves left to rot on the bottom of the pool can cause stains and will lead to algae growth (green pools).

An automatic pool cleaner will help rid the pool of leaves, but which type is best for you?

Suction Cleaners 

The suction cleaners are connected to the skimmer box by a hose an rely on the pool pump to power them. These cleaners suck the muck off the bottom of the pool directly to the skimmer box.

Suction cleaners are usually either wheeled (such as the Hayward “Aquanaut 250”  or pulsating (such as the Acrobat GT)

Suction cleaners should only be run for 3 to 4 days a week as when these are running the skimmer box isn’t doing it’s main job of collecting the floating debris from the surface of the water.

You can also add an “in line” leaf catcher to the suction hose which holds leaves before they clog the skimmer basket.

 

Robotic Cleaners

These cleaners are generally more expensive that the suction cleaner, but they operate autonomously from the skimmer box thus letting the skimmer take the debris from the surface of the pool whilst the vac collects the stuff from the bottom and walls.

Robotic cleaners are electrically powered and have an internal bag or basket to collect the leaves.
