HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST POOL CLEANER?

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST POOL CLEANER FOR YOUR POOL?

Having a swimming pool is a luxury, and nothing beats the heat like jumping into a cold pool on a hot summer day. The pleasures of pool ownership involve not just swimming and partying, but also keeping your pool clean, avoiding a green swamp and mosquito breeding ground.

Using a pool cleaning service regularly is expensive. With the help of a pool vacuum cleaner, you can easily clean and maintain your pool on your own. Though manual and automated cleaners are available, robotic pool cleaners make this tedious task easier and hands-free. However, with so many various tools and machinery available to assist in pool cleaning, you may become confused.

We, at Wellbots, have researched and compiled a comprehensive list of all the criteria to consider when selecting the finest pool cleaner for your pool type. Let’s dive in!

Choosing the right cleaner is driven by the following things:

  • Pool size- The size of the pool is the first factor to consider. The larger the pool, the more gunk, and debris to clean. This means it will take a longer time to clean and so might cost you more on your energy bills. So you will need a powerful cleaner with a more durable filtration system.
  • The shape of the pool- The second factor to consider is the shape of your pool. Many people overlook this factor, yet it is critical in determining which cleaner is best for your needs. Is your pool a traditional rectangle or square, or does it have a unique shape? This is important since some models work better in curved pools. Some pool cleaners, for example, are better for stairwells, acute angles, and corners.
  • The material your pool is made of - concrete, vinyl, tile, pebblecrete, and fiberglass are just some of the materials that can be used to construct swimming pools. Each of these materials has unique qualities that influence the performance and outcomes of different swimming pool cleaners. As a result, you need to pay special attention when selecting a cleaner to ensure that it is intended to adequately clean the material in your pool.
  • The depth of your pool- is another element to consider. If you have an in-ground or above-ground swimming pool, the depth factor is important because really deep pools will require a lengthy hose for the cleaner to reach the bottom.
  • Nature and extent of debris- While having a beachfront pool or one surrounded by forests has its benefits, these qualities also have an impact on the sort and volume of debris that enters your pool. This is critical because some pool cleaners have difficulty picking up big amounts of leaves and twigs, or if there are heavy objects to suck up, such as sand, for example. If you have a swimming pool in an area where a lot of debris gets in, a heavy-duty cleaner that can handle bigger volumes of filth and trash is the way to go.

There are different types of pool cleaners that operate on different mechanisms- Suction, pressure, and robotic cleaners.

Suction cleaners - Suction cleaners attach to your skimmer box with a hose and suck up debris using the suction created by your filtration system. The majority of pool cleaners are suction versions.

There are two types of suction cleaners: Inertia driven and geared suction cleaners. The inertia-driven suction cleaners work best in pools with curving walls and no sharp corners since they clean in a random way. Geared suction cleaners have wheels or tracks and move in a predetermined rhythm. They can easily fit into small spaces, making them excellent for pools with a lot of steps and jagged ledges. However, they will require more frequent maintenance. This type of cleaner is budget-friendly and simple to set up but challenging to maintain.

Pressure Cleaners - More powerful than suction cleaners, the majority of the pressure models have an extra booster pump that requires a separate hose connection in the pool wall. Retrofitting them can be costly, so if your pool doesn't already have one, look into other options. Pressure cleaners that connect directly to your existing pool pump may put your filtration system under stress. Suitable for all pool types, shapes, and surfaces, they collect debris in a large self-contained bag for clog-free operation.

Robotic Cleaners - Robotic pool cleaners are gaining popularity and are powered by a transformer that is plugged into a power outlet and functions independently of the pool equipment. The robot moves about the pool with a motor, collecting leaves in a bag or canister within the pool cleaner. They pick up small and huge particles depending on the model purchased. They're ideal for leafy pools or pools with fine dust because of this. The ultimate plug and play cleaning solution for most pool size, shape, and finishes, the robotic cleaners are completely hands-free and uses up to 94% less energy than most pressure cleaners.

Other features to consider while choosing your pool cleaner:

  • Make sure the hose is long enough to reach from one pool end to the other.
  • Consider whether the model you purchase can climb the pool steps or would require hand cleaning.
  • Some cleaners may be used with the pool cover on, which is ideal while the winter cover is in place.
  • To cope with varying pool shapes and sizes, make sure your pool cleaner has adjustable hose buoyancy and main flow.

There are many different types of pool cleaners available, and pool owners should evaluate various criteria such as the device's performance, maintenance, the convenience of use, and value. The main goal of using a pool cleaner is to enjoy your pool with the least amount of effort. There is no such thing as the best pool cleaner; the greatest pool cleaner is the one that best suits your pool.

Now that you know how to pick the best pool cleaner for your type of pool, you can get on with the fun part- swimming, relaxing, entertaining, and enjoying yourself!
