The Top 5 Pool Cleaners in 2015

If you’ve ever owned a pool before you clearly know how difficult it is to keep it clean. Without the help of a vacuum, dirt, debris, and algae would build on the bottom of your pool. Even though we all like to think that the manual vacuums are sufficient enough, it can take hours for you to get the pool ready to swim in. Below is a list of the top 5 pool cleaners in 2015 and all of their amazing features.

1. Dolphin Nautilus

Perfect for inground pools that are up to 50 ft in length, the Dolphin Nautilus cleans the bottom of your pool, the walls, any coves, and other additional areas that your pool may have. It’s a lightweight piece of machinery that’s a great choice for beginner pool owners and veterans. It will scoop up debris and dirt trapped in tight spaces and you can also take advantage of the cartridge filter that’s simple to clean. There’s also a spring filter that is great for when the pool is particularly dirty.

2. Polaris Vac-Sweep 280

Pool owners and tech gurus around the world have given this model rave reviews due to its record setting cleaning abilities and the sheer amount of power that it has. It will run on 2 jets which helps it to move incredibly fast throughout the pool. There is a single filter bag that holds both small and large debris ranging from pebbles to leaves. It will also get rid of debris before it makes it to the filter basket.

3. Aquabot APRVJR

If you own an above-ground pool, the Aquabot is a model that’s a great choice. There’s 40 feet of cable with a hose free design. It will work quickly on larger sized pools (up to 1 hour or less). There is a filter bag included that is reusable and will pick up large and small pieces of debris. It is driven by jets and great vacuum suction through the 24-volt pump. It also includes a 2-hour automatic shutoff feature.

4. iRobot Mirra 530

Most pool cleaners tackle the bottom and sides of the pool but the iRobot Mirra 530 also takes care of the pool surface. It has a PVC scrubbing brush that gets rid of debris, algae, and bacteria. It also has 2 motors that power the vacuum and the filter for up to 70 gallons per minute. It also has sponge-like wheels to help the system grip to the bottom of the pool.

5. Hayward TigerShark

For a more expensive model, the Hayward TigerShark performs calculations before it starts cleaning. By taking the size of the pool into account, it will self-program the best route for optimal cleaning. It will work its way from the bottom of the pool to the sides and even to the stairs. All you have to do to clean the unit is remove the filter and rinse it off.
