Robotic Pool Cleaners
Robotic pool cleaners are the future of pool cleaning and are, by far, the best type of cleaners available. Robotic pool cleaners work independently from the filter and pump system and are driven by an electric motor inside the unit. They are self-contained, collecting debris in a filter canister and have built-in intelligence that ensures they don't get stuck in corners and on steps.
A robotic pool cleaner is a waterproof, electric (low voltage) pool cleaner that contains motors for driving it around and also suction for the cleaning. All of the debris is picked up and go right into a self-contained canister or basket.
Robotic pool cleaners do a much better job of cleaning over other types of cleaners and are not limited to just picking up small leaves and dust. A good robotic cleaner can pick up large leaves and small twigs right through to scrubbing walls and filtering out microalgae spores. All without missing spots.
Unlike other pool cleaners that use the main filter and pump system; robotic pool cleaners, are completely separate. They typically have two motors; one for movement and another that sucks the pool water in and runs it through the filtering system and basket.
In addition to the motors, a true robotic pool cleaner has a complex array of sensors and microchips that are constantly gathering information and recalibrating. For instance, if the sensors detect a wall, then the microchip will relay instructions to the motors that the cleaner needs to climb. Throughout this process, good robotic pool cleaners can learn the shape of your pool and optimise their path to suit.
Most common belief is that robotic pool cleaners are only suited to pools that are either large, simple shape or have a large amount of debris. This couldn't be further from the truth.
Simply put; all shapes, sizes and surfaces are perfect for a robotic cleaner; from a vinyl lined above ground pool through to an Olympic sized fully tiled commercial pool.
The important thing, however, is to make sure to choose the right type of robotic pool cleaner to suit your pool's shape, surface and even your personal feature needs.
While the low prices of the other types of pool cleaners may be attractive to some buyers, understand that paying a bit extra for a robotic pool cleaner will ensure that you get the pool cleaned effectively and save in the long run.
Here is a list of benefits to owning a robotic pool cleaner:
1. Self-contained. No one wants to fuss around with the hoses on a suction pool cleaner, nor does anyone want to deal with the ineffectiveness of replacements when they split. A robotic pool cleaners self-contained system and is far more effective and convenient. Simply drop it in the water plug it into a powerpoint and press on. Then empty the basket when full. It's that simple.
2. A better clean. Unlike other pool cleaner types, a robotic cleaner is not under the influence of the water flow currents. Meaning the clean coverage is up to 98% depending on the shape and size, and without any fancy attachments to fight against water flow. On top of that, the brush mechanism on the popular cleaners means the pool surface and waterline gets scrubbed as is you were doing it.
3. Save you money. A robotic pool cleaner costs $30-$100 to run per year, picks up microalgae spores requiring fewer chemicals, requires very little replacement parts, doesn't cause unnecessary strain on your filtering system; extending the life of your filter and pump system. The list of savings can go on. In fact, a Robotic Pool cleaner can save you between $500 and $1000 per year over other types of cleaners.
4. Save you time. Aside from the financial savings, the saving of time is the biggest saving of all. Time better spent with family and friends not scrubbing your pool or scooping leaves. A robotic pool cleaner will clean any pool much faster, better than you will, and with some having the ability to be programmed it can even be cleaned while you're away.
The bottom line is a robotic pool cleaner work, and work well!
