Pool Cleaner. Saturday , February 24th , 2018 - 16:22:38 PM
My oh my where do I begin? Ill try not to give my age away here but, I remember when Kreepy Kraulys were one of the first automatic pool cleaners on the market. Infact in 1974 the very first models were actually made of wood and rubber tubing. People lucky enough to have had one of those Pinochio Bots absolutley loved them. Ive heard stories from folks (my grandfather of course) who desperately tried to keep them operational by using coat hangers, duct tape and glue. Kreepy Kraulys were actually sold door to door at one time. Their salespeople were quite clever in the presentation or should I say demonstration.
I also dont like the fact that you are using the suction from the pool equipment to operate. You loose some of your skimmers ability to skim the top of the pool. My belief is the more you skim off the top of the pool the less you will have falling in your pool, that can be hard to achieve if your cleaner is taking up your skimmer. There are choices to be made in a purchase of an automatic pool cleaner and if your building your pool its a good time to look at these options. If your pool is already built your options are limited to your pocket book for most people.
Lets address each possible environment, configuration and cleaner application. When your pool was built will obviously dictate some of your options based on limitations of your pool equipment and plumbing configuration. Basic pool with no dedicated cleaner line: By basic I mean a pool built with a skimmer, a maindrain and returnline. No screen enclosure and moderate exposure to leaves, fine debris. Suction type cleaners such as a Hayward Navigator, Barracuda, Kreepy Krauly etc, come with a sectional vac hose that would connect to the pools skimmer.
