Christine Vega. Pool Cleaner. February 25th , 2018.
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.
The necessity of this extra pump adds to the expense of pressureside automatic pool cleaners for inground swimming pools so they are typically not as affordable as suctionside cleaners. Pressureside automatic inground cleaners are also not as easy to install and have to have their debris bags cleaned or changed for the units to continue working effectively. There are also many advantages to this category of automatic pool vacuums. For example, pressureside cleaners offer excellent cleaning power and are effective at vacuuming up larger debris such as leaves and twigs.
No way do you want him to take it out of your pool to switch with another because you cant and dont want to take your eyes off of this thing. By 1978 a sufficient number of units had been sold to cover the cost of plastic injection molding and a legend was born. Here are three main types of pool cleaners each classified by the drive mechanism used in each respective cleaner. Return Water Flow Back to Pool: Water flowing back to the pool via the pool return lines or a dedicated pool line for the sole purpose of attaching a cleaner that utilizes a drive mechanism that operates on a Venturi principle.
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.
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.
