Automatic Pool Cleaners

With pool ownership comes pool maintenance. You’ll want to keep it as simple as possible so that you will have time to enjoy your pool. One of the best ways to save time is with an automatic pool cleaner. They do exactly what the name implies – they automatically clean dirt and debris from your swimming pool. Automatic cleaners are available for both inground and above ground swimming pools. No matter what type of pool you have, there are three basic cleaners: Suction Side, Pressure Side and Robotic.

Goby Suction Side Pool Cleaner

Suction Side Cleaners

Suction Side Cleaners are a great choice for first time pool owners as most only have one moving part and are economical. They simply attach to your existing skimmer and work when your pool pump is running. What is great is that they suck the dirt into your existing filter system. They are very simple to install and operate.

Goby Pressure Side Pool Cleaner

Pressure Side Cleaners

Pressure Side Cleaners attach to a return line in the swimming pool. Some pressure side cleaners also require an additional booster pump. Instead of sending debris to your pool filter system, the dirt gets deposited into an attached bag. This saves some wear and tear on your filter system. The tradeoff is that they are a bit more difficult to use than a suction side and are priced a little higher. But an advantage is that a pressure side cleaner will enhance water circulation, is fast and efficient and won’t clog your skimmer with debris.

Robotic Pool Cleaners

Robotic pool cleaners have become very popular because they do not use your pool’s filter system or skimmer. All of the dirt and debris is collected within the cleaner itself. They use a standard 110-volt electrical supply for power. They automatically navigate your pool while scrubbing and cleaning the floor and walls. They are also very fast and efficient and can have special features such as setting timers for pre-set cleanings during the week.
