- do up to a 98% efficient job depending upon the initial construction of the pool - and the type of cleaner involved
A Pool that has been constructed in the correct manner to permit their successful operation will have gentle curves between the walls and floor of the pool to permit the cleaner to make the transition from one to another and back again
One major advantage of an automatic cleaner is that, as they travel around the pool, they improve overall circulation by withdrawing water from circulation ‘dead-spots’
Fresh supplies of sanitized water are brought into these dead-spots, reducing the possibilities of an algae attack in these vulnerable areas and thus reducing your overall chemicals bill by permitting a slightly lower concentration of sanitizer in the pool
Automatic cleaners don’t check the chemical balance, however, and rarely clean steps thoroughly. Having said that; they are tireless and can be used without removing a pool-cover or safety net
When buying any auto-cleaner, it is vitally important to make sure that spare parts and technical back-up are available. This is not always the case with the budget cleaners imported from the Far East. An inexpensive cleaner that can't ever be repaired is just money down the drain
No matter which type or model you choose there are only three different ways to get dirt and debris out of a pool.
- Visible leaves, twigs, grass-clippings, insects etc. are removed with a pool-net
- Dirt/debris from the floor are removed during auto-cleaning or manual vacuuming
- Suspended particles are removed by the filter during normal circulation and filtration
Auto-cleaners come in three different types and there are a bewildering variety of models within each type
Each type of cleaner has its own pros and cons; please click the links above to read about each type separately
