With the above factors in mind, you will be able to better evaluate the suitability of the three main types of automatic inground pool cleaners. These three categories include suctionside, pressureside and robotic cleaners. Starting with suctionside automatic pool models for inground swimming pools, these units attach to your pools skimmer or designated cleaning line and operate off the existing suction. This suction not only allows the automatic vacuums to vacuum up debris, it also provides the power needed for the units to mobilize around the pool.
Robotic pool cleaners save a great deal of money in operating costs, because these pool cleaners do not require your pool pump and filtration system to be running for the pool cleaner to work. This also means you do not have to clean your filtration system after each use, using more electricity and losing chemically treated water through the filter backwash cycle. Robotic pool cleaners are available in many sizes and models designed for average size above ground swimming pools, up to the largest commercial facilities and water parks.
The Turbo T Jet sits on four wheels and is quite identical to the Pool Rovers mentioned in the previous section. It is specifically designed to clean abrasive floor surfaces such as concrete surfaces for pools of up to 50 squareorfeet in size. This brushless pool cleaner uses a water jet to clean abrasive surfaces, where other pool cleaning robot models tend to wear and tear their brushes. The Turbo T Jet has a cleaning time of 1 hour and is programmed with an auto shutoff feature after 2 hours.
The more common types of cleaners are the suctionside driven, pressureside driven, robotic and returnside driven cleaners. The last one, though, has lost its popularity due to high maintenance costs. Its dedicated motor pump and need for bigger volumes of water make it less energyefficient and costly to maintain. Older pools may still have these cleaners but new pool buyers prefer to use more modern pool cleaners. The pressure sidedriven cleaner is a close offshoot of the return sidedriven pool cleaner.
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.
