When it comes to pool cleaning, anything that makes your life easier is a good thing! For this reason, it’s no surprise that a lot of people invest in specialised equipment to help keep their water sparkling clean. When it comes to pool cleaners, the two main options you have are suction and robotic cleaners. Let’s take a look at what these two options have to offer!
Suction Pool Cleaner
Suction cleaners connect directly to the skimmer box and move around to pick up dirt and debris. Suction cleaners are a more up-front cost effective option compared to robotic cleaners and clean the bottom of the pool and up the walls. They’re also easy to install. Suction cleaners are very effective when it comes to clearing smaller particles from the pool but do struggle with larger debris.
Unlike robotic cleaners, a suction pool cleaner is reliant on the pump for it to work and as the debris goes straight to the skimmer box so you’ll need to clean it out more frequently. Suction cleaners also often require the pump to be working at a higher speed and flow rate to work efficiently. This is something you need to be aware of if you also have a variable speed pump. If for some reason there is a lack of suction or flow in your system, then the suction cleaner will struggle to work if at all.
Robotic Pool Cleaner
Robotic pool cleaners are the most advanced option on the market to keep your pool clean. They operate separately from your pool pump, and have a separate cartridge or bag for collecting dirt and debris so all you need to do is plug it in and turn it on. With the advanced computer technology, your robot pool cleaner can map out the shape of your pool so it won’t miss any spots and the powerful sucking action means it can pick up even the most stubborn dirt particles or larger debris. Robotic cleaners can save you not only time but also money as they’re highly efficient and offer savings on water and electricity.
When it comes to robotic pool cleaners, you’re choosing a superior method for keeping your pool clean and the only real downside is that they can be more expensive initially. However, you’ll also save money in the long run thanks to superior efficiency and performance.
