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.
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.
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.
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.
Suction is created on the underside of the inground pool cleaner by water being pulled out of the pool by the pump. As it moves around your pool, debris and sediment is vacuumed through the hose and into the filter pump strainer basket. You can adjust cleaning patterns to maximize coverage and cleaning efficiency by manipulating hose length, water volume, and water flow. The pros of suctionside inground cleaners are that theyre easy to install and operate. Some of our suctionside cleaners include the Pentair Kreepy Krauly, the Hayward Pool Vac Ultra, and the Hayward KingRay. For an extremely economical option, try the Hayward SunRay.
