Meghan Jacobs. Pool Cleaner. February 18th , 2018.
The booster pump models have a separate pump and motor from the swimming pool pump. They require a minimal amount of water from the pool pump, the low volume of water is sent to the cleaner pump and boosted to operate the pool cleaner. These in my opinion are the best cleaner for any swimming pool application. They are easy to operate, clean the pool the well and most can handle large amounts of debris with no affect on the swimming pool cleaning equipment. My favorite cleaner happens to be a Polaris 280, they have a large throat for leaves and debris.
Using a dedicated booster pump for your inground pool cleaner will ensure that your cleaner achieves maximum efficiency. The benefits of pressureside cleaners for inground swimming pools include the fact that they redistribute clean water throughout your pool and they have a dedicated debris bag so they wont compromise your filter system. They can be less efficient than other varieties of inground pool cleaners, but have a proven track record and make a great investment.
It functions under the same concept but it uses 2 motor pups instead. The additional pump is a booster to help increase water flow and pressure. It may be more efficient than its predecessor but a pressuredriven pool cleaner runs on more energy because of its extra motor pump. However, a few pool owners dont mind the added cost because of its increased efficiency. A suction side cleaner is another popular option. It looks like a vacuum cleaner that sucks dirt from the pool floor through its underside. Owners of this kind of automatic cleaner rave about its ease of usage and assembly.
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.
The purpose of the sectional vac hose is due to the need of only enough hose to reach the furthest point in the pool. Any additional hose beyond what is necessary to reach the furthest point can and will affect the cleaners overall performance. The downside to this type of installation is that when you connect the cleaner to the skimmer port you now have eliminated the skimmers ability to collect (skim) the surface of floating debris. True there are some aftermarket products that allow the cleaner and skimmer to alternate run schedules but these devices prove to diminish performance of both the skimmer and cleaner when in there scheduled mode.
