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.
Overall, however, suctionside automatic models for inground swimming pools are reliable, quite effective and extremely easy to use. Pressureside cleaners are the second type of automatic pool cleaners for you to consider. In contrast to suctionside type, pressureside models work off water pressure. To do this, they need to be attached to a pump. While some pressureside automatic pool cleaners can be attached to your existing pool pump, many models require an extra, dedicated pump called a booster pump.
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.
For instance, is your pool screened in?, not screened in?, is your pool exposed to seasonal trees, flowers that drop heavy foliage into the water?. Is your pool exposed to fine silt, sand or clay?. Several other factors to consider is the actual pool equipment, plumbing configuration, shape of pool, depth and slope from shallow end to deep end. Features and fixtures should be considered as well, I.E ladders, steps, handrails and islands in pool all have there impact on a pool cleaners performance.
There are many pool cleaners to choose from and each model is built differently. Being informed and doing some research can take the guess work out of picking a cleaner. It is important to define what benefits you expect to get out of your cleaner before buying one. A suitable pool cleaner that is made for its dimensions and specifications will help you maximize your pools usage. Many pool supply stores offer their consultation for free. Just be sure to have in hand your pools measurements and type of filtration system.
