Shawna Alston. Pool Cleaner. February 21st , 2018.
Because pressure side automatic pool cleaners are connected to the return line fitting of the swimming pool, the pool skimmer is left open to draw dirty water and debris from the surface of the pool. These pool cleaners act as a roving return line, and help eliminate dead spots in the swimming pool which are not reached by the circulating action of the main filter system. These pool cleaners deposit debris into a special filter bag instead of inside your pool filter system.
A wide range of pressureside inground pool cleaners are available including the Hayward Phantom (with or without booster pump), the Polaris 380, and as an economical alternative the Polaris 165. These inground pool cleaners run independently of your pools pumping or filtration system. They contain an internal motor to power locomotion and suction, and therefore require electricity. Robotic cleaners for inground pools are connected to a transformer which plugs into a standard outdoor outlet and converts the electricity to low voltage.
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.
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.
Suction Side Driven: Water being drawn from the pool from either the pools skimmer or a dedicated plumbing line connected to the suction side of the pools recirculating pump. The cleaner is driven by a mechanism that is powered by the water drawn through the cleaner and sucking up debris at the same time. Which Cleaner is Best? Not so much as to which cleaner is best but, more to which cleaner is best for your particular pool and the environment in which the pool is located.
