Christine Vega. Pool Cleaner. February 21st , 2018.
The Aquabot Basic and its big brother Aquabot Turbo are the first two models running on tracks rather than wheels. They are both designed for square shaped pools. The Turbo requires 4 hours of labour to clean a pools floor, walls and waterline. Account for 2 more hours for the Basic to do the same job, which makes it 30percents slower, but does produce the same quality results. If you have a need for maximum flexibility, look into the Aquabot Turbo T series, which are all equipped with tracks and brushes.
They have few moving parts that equals to shorter down times due to maintenance. The Polaris 280 cleans in diving and play pools well. I have found that a 4 wheeled cleaner such as the Lerto Legend by Pentair can outperform the 280 cleaner when the design of the pool is square in shape. The nonboosted pressure side cleaners operate off of your pool pump. They take a portion of the water that is returned to the swimming pool and direct it to the pool cleaner. These can work well but often have problems in a pool with water features that require the return water to operate, such as a spa spill over.
As inground cleaners have been a standard accessory for swimming pools for several decades, it should come as no surprise that there is a wide range of choices available to you. All automatic inground pool cleaners fall into one of 3 basic categories: suctionside, pressureside, and robotic inground cleaners. These inground cleaners connect to your inground pool suction ports. Usually youll install it using the skimmer port but you may have a dedicated vacuum port for your inground pool cleaner.
These solutions have their own pump, a drive motor and an internal bag for collecting and storing debris. Robotic automatic pool cleaners also feature a computer chip, which allows the units to be programmed to clean your pool in a specific pattern for enhanced cleaning efficiency and effectiveness. Robotic inground pool cleaners are extremely convenient and powerful. They clean pool walls as well as pool bottoms very effectively, even in swimming pools with unusual shapes and spots that are difficult for random pattern cleaners to reach.
That being said you would have to manually alternate the cleaner and skimmer operation. Basic Pool with Dedicated Cleaner Line: This is where a line has been plumbed from the side wall of the pool back to the suction side of the pump. A correct installation of such a line would include a valve that allows you to control the amount of water being drawn through the dedicated line thus allowing speed control of the respective cleaner. Each manufactures cleaner and model will specify the correct speed of the cleaner by either providing a gauge in which to measure the cleaners speed at time of installation or a automatic bypass valve that regulates the cleaners speed.
