Not all automatic pool cleaners are created equal and while suction pool cleaners used to be the most popular option, newer technology is taking over and making life even easier. if you’re looking to achieve pristine water for your pool with minimal effort, robotic pool cleaners are becoming an increasingly popular choice. This is a convenient way to keep your pool looking clear and healthy. Let’s look at the reasons why robotic pool cleaners are a smart investment.
1. Operates independently
Unlike other automatic pool cleaners which have to be attached to your filtration system, robotic pool cleaners operate completely independently and don’t put any pressure on your existing equipment. Rather than it attaching to your filtration system, your robot cleaner just needs to be plugged in, turned on and dropped into the water. It’s as easy as that!
2. Efficient cleaning
Compared to the old fashioned suction cleaners, robot cleaners use high-tech ‘smarts’ for efficient cleaning. The right models actually know where in the pool they have already been! Robot cleaners utilise apps so you can control your pool cleaner with minimal effort and without the need for supervision. The computer technology has only improved over the years with a focus on your robot being as easy to use as possible. Your robot cleaner will leave your water looking clean and clear and ready for swimming with very little effort from you!
3. Superior filtration
Your robot cleaner is able to help clean your pool with superior results thanks to its ability to filter out the smallest particles from the water. There’s nothing more frustrating than a pool cleaner which leaves behind debris that can result in cloudy, lacklustre water. Robot cleaners are particularly good at picking up fine debris for crystal clear results.
The usage of advanced technology in the development of your robotic pool cleaner means that not only does it clean thoroughly and quickly, it’s also highly energy-efficient, so it takes less electricity to run. The efficient operation also means that it delivers pristine results in less time compared to traditional suction cleaners. After only 1-2 hours, you’ll be able to see that your robot has done its job and it can be removed from the pool so you can enjoy the water.
5. Filter freedom
The fact that your robot cleaner doesn’t attach to your pool filter means that your skimmer box can do its job without having to cope with the additional pressure of a pool cleaner. Suction cleaners connect directly to the filter which means your equipment works harder to operate the suction cleaner as well as doing its regular job of circulation and clearing. Luckily, you won’t have that problem with your robot!
6. All-around cleaning
With the right model robot pool cleaner, there are no missed spots and the technology means it can get into corners, steps, and up to the waterline. This is due to advanced technology which maps the surface of the pool to ensure there are no areas which are forgotten by your robot. Unlike suction cleaners which often have to be pulled out of corners or off steps, your robot can be left unsupervised to do its job and you can be confident that it will deliver all-around cleaning.
7. Money savings
A robotic pool cleaner is a smart investment as it means that you can efficiently clean your pool at the touch of a button without having to work your existing equipment even harder. Although they are more of an investment initially compared to suction cleaners, their energy efficiency means that over time you’ll find considerable savings with your power bill while also enjoying the superior cleaning ability of your robot.
8. Less maintenance
If you’re looking for a low maintenance pool cleaner (who isn’t?) then a robot is the way to go. All of the debris is collected in a self-contained bag which just needs to be emptied after each use so you don’t need to worry about having to do additional maintenance on your existing equipment. Along with emptying out the debris, all you need to do is rinse off your robot after each use to prevent build-up and check the brushes and tracks for trapped debris.
9. Affordable options
When they first arrived on the market, it’s true that robot cleaners were relatively expensive. However, the new technology that comes with robot cleaners has meant that they’re becoming increasingly affordable. With so many different robotic cleaner options on the market, you’ll be able to find one that suits your lifestyle and budget. Also, it’s important to remember that your robot is an investment as they do save you money in the long term.
10. Slimline design
With robotic pool cleaners, clumsy design and twisted hoses are a thing of the past. With your robot, there are no unsightly hoses – just a slim, non-tangle cord. While suction pool cleaners seemed to take up the entire pool when they were operating, your robot is very discreet while it does its work. Simply drop it into the water and turn on the button – that’s all there is to it. It also doesn’t need to stay in the water for extended periods like a suction cleaner.
