Shawna Alston. Pool Cleaner. February 13th , 2018.
The other down side to these type cleaners is that the water returning to your pool is not flowing through the pool return jets and can begin to cause circulation problems. by not keeping the water turbid enough to prevent algae growth. It is can be an easy process in most swimming pools to convert to a boosted pressure side cleaner by changing out the cleaner head, replumbing, adding a booster pump and time clock. Suction cleaners operate on the principle of suction much like a vacuum.
Suctionside automatic inground pool cleaners are a popular option because of their economical prices and their ease of installation and operation. These models are very effective at suctioning up dirt from pool floors and automatically clean in a random pattern. Although suctionside inground pool cleaners are advantageous in the sense that they operate off your existing pool equipment, they are not as effective at vacuuming up larger debris, they can cause your pool filter to become clogged and they are better at cleaning pool floors than pool walls.
There is a wide selection of automatic pool cleaners available for any budget, and every size InGround or AboveGround swimming pool. There are three different types of automatic pool cleaners for In Ground pools and Above Ground pools, and they are classified by the way they collect debris and move around the pool. Suction Side automatic pool cleaners are connected to your pool skimmer and Pressure Side automatic pool cleaners connect to a return line fitting of your pool. Robotic pool cleaners work independently from your pool filtration system, and are powered by electricity.
They require a dedicated line for suction or a skimmer outlet is used. They are very good cleaners and can pick up very fine debris in a swimming pool. No separate pump to operate no extra time clock can all relate to more money in parts and higher energy cost. However I feel their not very good in a pool with a large amount of pool debris. The leaves that get sucked up go to a separate canister or to the pool pump basket. The other down side is most tend to do well only in a pool with no deep end more of an even depth such as a play pool.
They have few moving parts that equals to shorter down times due to maintenance. The Polaris 280 cleans in diving and play pools well. I have found that a 4 wheeled cleaner such as the Lerto Legend by Pentair can outperform the 280 cleaner when the design of the pool is square in shape. The nonboosted pressure side cleaners operate off of your pool pump. They take a portion of the water that is returned to the swimming pool and direct it to the pool cleaner. These can work well but often have problems in a pool with water features that require the return water to operate, such as a spa spill over.
