A pool can be a great asset in the warmer months, providing a venue for family fun and activities such as barbecuing or just a place to rest and relax. However, in order to keep the pool attractive, it should be completely clean and neat. Debris will constantly find its way into your pool, especially if you have trees in your yard. Leaves, grass and other debris can make your pool look neglected and unattractive, but can also clog filters or pumps potentially causing equipment failure. Ineffective cleaning tools have caused pool owners a great deal of frustration, which is why many people are now looking to automatic pool cleaners.

Types of Pool Cleaners

Manual Tools & Pool Vacuums

There are a variety of tools and equipment available to help homeowners clean their pools. Manual tools include hand held nets and mesh baskets which can prove to be irritating, ineffective and time consuming. Some devices such as hand held vacuums can be back breaking to use and many simply move the debris around the water, allowing it to settle later.

Suction & Pressure Pool Cleaners

Suction cleaners are less labor intensive but don’t scrub to remove tougher debris such as algae.  Pressure cleaners require a specialist pump to be installed. This can be very costly to install in established pools and they are also unable to scrub the surfaces of the pool.

Automatic Pool Cleaners

These devices remove particles which contaminate your pool to keep the water hygienic and clean. There are a number of benefits of owning an automatic pool cleaner, the most common are below.

Benefits of Automatic Pool Cleaners

Cleaner and More Hygienic

Automatic cleaners can scrub the surfaces of your pool to create a cleaner more hygienic finish. They are easy to install and some more sophisticated models can also be used to chemically treat the pool. They are available in a variety of sizes and models to suit the particular requirements of your pool.

Energy Efficient

Automatic cleaning devices are self-programmable with microprocessors which allow them to navigate around the water by themselves. This means that your pool stays clean without the need to expend your time and effort dragging cleaning implements through the waters.

Automatic Cleaners Sanitize Your Pool

While manual cleaning can take an average of three hours, an automatic cleaner could clean the same size pool in approximately 45 minutes. This ensures your pool is thoroughly and efficiently cleaned very quickly, which is perfect for impromptu gatherings or parties.

Clean More Effectively

They can clean a variety of different types of debris from the pool including leaves, twigs, algae and numerous other particles. Most automatic cleaners are very effective at cleaning debris regardless of the volume or size of particles. They can also effectively clean the various crevices in the steps, walls or floor of your pool. This can prevent a build-up of debris which could cause damage to the integrity of your pool.

Additional features

Some models of automatic cleaners even feature remote control operation which allows you to ensure that your pool is super clean without leaving the comfort of your sun lounger. This allows you to relax and top up your tan while the pool cleaner works, ensuring it is attractive and clean, when you want to take a swim to cool off.
