There are a variety of automatic pool cleaners available today that will keep your pool looking
great, while saving you time and money. There are four types of automatic cleaners:
Hand Held, Suction, Pressure,
Robotic Type.
Your Pool City representative will be
happy to help you in selecting the right automatic cleaner for your pool.
Hand held cleaners, such as the Catfish or Pool Blaster, snap onto any
telescopic pole and require no installation or assembly. Using a
rechargeable battery and a reusable, easy-to-clean, filter bag they
collect leaves, hair, dirt, and even sand, silt and algae which means dirt
and debris stay out of your pool.
Suction type cleaners, such as the Aquabug
Hayward Aqua Ray, Zodiac1500
, use the filtration system of your pool working from the suction side of your
skimmer like you would use your manual vacuum. These automatic cleaners move
effortlessly with no additional costs. They also aid in circulating chemicals and water
temperatures from the bottom of the pool to top (through the clean water return)
more efficiently. These cleaners require no extra plumbing and incur no additional
energy cost cleaning your pool automatically, anytime your pump runs.
Pressure cleaners are powered by the force of the clean water coming back into your pool
through the return inlets. There are two types of pressure style cleaners- those that rely on your
filter’s return water pressure only and those that use an independent pump and motor specifically
to boost the return water pressure to operate the cleaner.
Both styles will
have a bag or storage compartment to collect the dirt and debris it collects.
These filter bags need to be emptied and cleaned but will in turn eliminate the
debris from entering your filter system. As they clean your pool they enhance
circulation by dispersing the chemicals and filtered water throughout the pool.
Our line of fully robotic above-ground and inground automatic cleaners will
completely clean your pool with the simple touch of a button.
This category
of cleaner operates completely independent of your pool’s pump / filtration
system and without the cost of installation or booster pumps as robotic
cleaners have their own pump motor and reusable filter system built-in. The
robots internal filtration enables reductions of debris entering main pool filtration systems and thus
cleaning the main filter by as much as 80%.
Additionally, robots can scrub your pool clean as it
vacuums and filters. Their powerful circulation capabilities mix warm chemically depleted water
above to mix with cooler chemically rich water below to provide more uniform and healthier
swimming water. To operate, simply plug in their compact power supply into a grounded outlet,
and the thin floating power cord into that and these low voltage (usually just 24v) robots will
automatically clean at the touch of a button.
