Pool Cleaner. Monday , February 26th , 2018 - 14:52:00 PM
They require a dedicated line for suction or a skimmer outlet is used. They are very good cleaners and can pick up very fine debris in a swimming pool. No separate pump to operate no extra time clock can all relate to more money in parts and higher energy cost. However I feel their not very good in a pool with a large amount of pool debris. The leaves that get sucked up go to a separate canister or to the pool pump basket. The other down side is most tend to do well only in a pool with no deep end more of an even depth such as a play pool.
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.
There are a few varieties of automatic pool cleaners. The first is a suctionside pool cleaner. Some pools already have a dedicated pipe for this type of cleaner. It has a long moulded plastic hose that connects a cleaning unit to filter suction, plugged into an intake pipe below the pools skimmer basket. When the suction side unit is connected and the filter is running, the cleaner will move in a random pattern across the floor and sides of the pool. Pulses of water will naturally propel the unit. Brushes are attached to the underside and have the ability to detach particles of debris. Suction carries the debris to the filter.
