If you own a pool, are around a pool, or plan on being in the vicinity of a pool there is one thing you need to take into account: what kind of pool cleaner should you get?
Many different models offer different specs at different price points, making the task of purchasing one all the more complex. Here at Wellbots, our goal isn't just to sell you the most state of the art tech, its also to help teach you what products are best for your lifestyle. Today, I will be breaking down the Top 5 pool cleaners on the market in 2018 to help you find which one is best for you.
1. Pentair Kreepy Krauly Prowler 920
The Prowler 920 from Pentair is a well designed highly efficient pool cleaner, well optimized for a wide variety of pool designs and outdoor setups. The Prowler 920 comes with large and fine debris filters allowing for more control over your pool cleaning experience. To go with the advanced cleaning tech packed inside, the Prowler runs at a low voltage for the entirety of its three-hour cleaning cycle. Saving you money on cleaning, meaning you can spend more time just enjoying the wonders of your new pool.
The Dolphin Triton Plus from Maytronics looks very similar to the Prowler 920, but comes packed with a few very different features. First, the Triton Plus' cable is 60ft long, making it ideal for very long and deep pools. With top of the line gripping technology, the Triton has been specially designed for cleaning the walls of a pool. The Triton Plus has a runtime of two hours but what makes the cleaning experience so unique with the Triton is its ability to connect with the MyDolphin App on your phone. From there you can drive the Triton directly yourself!
3. Dolphin Nautilus Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
The second product with the Dolphin brand is a slightly more basic version compared to the Triton Plus. It has a more extended runtime, clocking in at 3 hours per session, and a shorter cable making its max pool length only 50ft. The Nautilus Plus is exceptionally efficient, costing just 5 cents per hour to run. High powered sensors for mapping the dimensions of the pool comes standard with all Dolphin Pool Cleaners, significantly improving the Nautilus' power and accuracy.
Yet another product from Dolphin, the DX6 is one of the most advanced Pool Cleaners we have ever seen. Designed for pools up to 50ft, the DX6 can clean anywhere from 2-4 hours at a manageable price point. With mighty grip strength, the DX6 can climb walls and stairs meaning no part of your pool goes uncleaned. The real power of the DX6 lies in its sheer power; it comes packed with a host of cleaning features and capabilities you can control with the included remote. If having a clean pool is a passion of yours, you can't go wrong with the DX6.
Last but certainly not least is the SharkVac from HAYWARD. Sleekly designed with not one, but two fine-grain filters, the SharkVac merges design with utility. Ideal for Pools measuring 20ft x 40ft the SharkVac is meant for a slightly different pool size than some of the Dolphin models. Capable of cleaning all surfaces the SharkVac is the definition of a Jack-of-all-trades, and coming in at a very affordable price point is key to remember. While not the most powerful model on the map, it surely can do enough to garner interest and is up to the vast majority of cleaning tasks.
