Which Type of Automatic Pool Cleaner Is Right For Me?

Although the trusty pool net and a stiff brush are useful for getting rid of leaves and debris, it’s pretty labour intensive if these are your only means of keeping your pool clean. Luckily, technology has made life much easier when it comes to pool maintenance and there a number of automatic options available.  As experts when it comes to pool cleaning, Perth based Pool Assist are here to discuss the various automatic pool cleaners available to make your life easier.

Suction pool cleaners

The traditional suction pool cleaner is a popular choice for those on a budget and is connected directly to the skimmer basket, using the suction to move around the floor of the pool in a random pattern. Suction cleaners suck the dirt and debris straight into the skimmer basket so you need to be vigilant about checking the skimmer regularly so it doesn’t become clogged. Because it’s connected directly to the pump and filter, a suction cleaner can shorten the life of your equipment over time. It typically also takes the flow away from the skimmer so it’s more difficult for surface debris to drawn into the skimmer box.

Robot pool cleaners

At the top of the line in terms of technology and efficiency is the robotic pool cleaner. It uses advanced computer technology to map the layout of your pool which stops your cleaner getting stuck in corners or missing areas. Best of all, they are totally independent of your pool’s filtration system and store debris within the unit itself for easy cleaning. This puts less pressure on your existing pool equipment – all you do is pop it in the pool and turn it on. Although a robot cleaner can cost more with the initial investment, the ease of use and economical running makes it well worth it.
