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.
The Venturi not only drives the pool cleaner but also creates a vacuum to capture debris. This type of cleaner usually sends the vacuumed debris right to the pool filter. Pressure Driven Water Flow Back to Pool: Water flowing back to the pool through a dedicated plumbing line is pressurized by using a secondary pump (booster pump) which enhances the Venturi effect thus allowing the cleaner to move faster and collect more debris in a shorter period of time. This type of cleaner usually has its own collection bag, net or screen. Thus allowing longer run cycles between cleaning of the collection vessel and the pools main filter.
These inground pool cleaners connect to the return side of the circulation system of your pool. Water that is pumped back to the pool is used to power these cleaners. Pressureside cleaners for inground swimming pools have an internal vacuum bag for collection dirt and debris. Sometimes pressureside cleaners can run off your pool pump and sometimes they will require a dedicated cleaner line and booster pump depending on the model of pool cleaner. Deciding whether youll need a dedicated cleaner line and booster pump basically depends on the model of pool cleaner, along with whether your pools existing pump can provide enough pressure to power the automatic pool cleaner.
The other down side to these type cleaners is that the water returning to your pool is not flowing through the pool return jets and can begin to cause circulation problems. by not keeping the water turbid enough to prevent algae growth. It is can be an easy process in most swimming pools to convert to a boosted pressure side cleaner by changing out the cleaner head, replumbing, adding a booster pump and time clock. Suction cleaners operate on the principle of suction much like a vacuum.
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.
