Swimming pools are the centerpiece of your backyard. They are the hub of much relaxing, fun, and exercise during the warm summer months. Regular pool maintenance and service are important to the upkeep of your pool. Properly cleaning your pool can be labor intensive and time-consuming. Automatic pool cleaners offer a convenient and easy-to-use alternative when it comes to keeping your pool free of debris.
Benefits of Automatic Pool Cleaners
The use of an automatic pool cleaner does not mean you will not have to lift a finger when it comes to cleaning your pool. It will, however, make keeping your pool clean much easier. Automatic pool cleaners are perfect for removing debris, sand, and dirt as well as effectively scrubbing the floor and walls of your pool. Some models even help increase the circulation of water in the pool.
Different Styles of Automatic Pool Cleaners
There are three different styles of automatic pool cleaners for consumers to choose from depending on their budget, needs, and size of their pool. The three kinds are suction-side pool cleaners, pressure-side pool cleaners, and robotic pool cleaners.
Suction-Side Pool Cleaners
Suction-side pool cleaners tend to be the most economical option when it comes to automatic pool cleaners. They are efficient at removing small debris from the pool and cleaning the sides and bottom of the pool. It is important to note that this type of pool cleaner utilizes the pool’s filtration system to remove debris.
Pressure-Sided Pool Cleaners
Pressure-sided pool cleaners are the most popular kind of automatic pool cleaner as it is low-maintenance and extremely effective at removing medium and large debris from your pool. The best feature is that the debris goes into a bag attached to the cleaner instead of your pool’s filter. This type of pool cleaner takes advantage of water pressure to navigate your pool, cleaning as it goes.
Robotic Pool Cleaners
These are known as the Cadillacs of automatic pool cleaners. Robotic pool cleaners are capable of removing everything from very small debris to large debris. Over time your robotic pool cleaner will learn how to navigate your pool efficiently. A built-in advantage is that they also help circulate the water in the pool which in turn helps keep the water cleaner.
Automatic pool cleaners reduce the amount of manual labor required to maintain your pool which means more time spent enjoying it. Alan Jackson Pools offers professional installation and servicing of swimming pools. Contact us for more information on how we can help you get the most out of your pool.
