The Different Types of Automatic Pool Cleaners

Automatic Pool Cleaners come in three varieties:

Suction Pool Cleaners use suction from your pool’s plumbing and filtration system to move around the bottom and walls of your pool. Suction cleaners are good for pools where debris is light.

Pressure Pool Cleaners use the pressure side of your pool’s plumbing and filtration system. Pressure-side cleaners are ideal for pools that are more likely to get larger debris like branches and leaves.

Robotic Pool Cleaners are simple: Plug it in, drop it in the pool, and let it work. The cleaner collects dirt and debris as it moves along the pool bottom and walls. Robotic cleaners tend to be more expensive, but they reduce wear and tear on your pool filtration system and reduce chemical usage.

Many pool cleaning systems require no installation. Others may require initial set-up and configuration. Contact us to discuss the system that best meets your needs.
