Why You Should Switch to an Automatic Pool CleaneR

Without a doubt, swimming is a refreshing way for you and your family to get through a hot day. You must maintain your pool properly and always keep it clean to continue enjoying it.

Sadly, when this cleaning is done manually, it'll not only tire you but also you might not get rid of all the dirt. You're better off going for an automatic pool cleaner for easier removal of dirt, debris, insects, and bacteria and a consistent quality of maintenance. 


Read on to find out more about automatic pool cleaners, their types, and how they work.

  • Suction-Side Pool Cleaners
  • Pressure Side Pool Cleaners
  • Robotic Pool Cleaners

Let’s see how each type works:

  • Suction-Side Automatic Pool Cleaners

This is widely used for above-ground pools. While cleaning the pool, attach it to the wall skimmer and it cleans your pool. This cleaner works while your pool pump is running.

  • Pressure-Side System

This has a host that is attached to the pool. The force of the water that comes from the return line enables the cleaner to move around your pool’s surface. As it moves through the surface, it can create a vacuum to suck dirt and debris from your pool and deposit them into a bag dedicated to dirt and debris.

  • Robotic Automatic Pool Cleaning System

This has its filtration system that is usually a secondary filter.  You don’t need to attach it to an external filter system while using a cleaner with its filtration system. This type of pool cleaning system can automatically clean your pool's debris and dirt.

Wondering why you should switch to automatic pool cleaners?

Here are 6 reasons why you should do so as a pool owner.

1. It saves time

Time is precious to all of us. An automatic cleaning system provides the opportunity to save the time otherwise dedicated to cleaning the swimming pool.

2. It’s easy to install

Automatic cleaning system pool cleaners are also easy to install because the pressure and suction models get attached to the pool's pump system, through a hose connection. There is no need to haul the unit out every time the pool needs cleaning.

3. It’s cost-effective

Automatic cleaning systems are often energy-efficient, thus, they can save you money on your electricity bill.

4. Maintenance is easy

The pool cleaner robot is easy to operate and easy to maintain.

Some robotic cleaners are created to move the water around as they clean. The water circulation helps to improve the chemical balance of your pool.

With an automatic pool cleaner, you don’t have to work as hard at keeping your pool clean. Just go ahead and enjoy a fresh pool.
