There are two types of automatic pool cleaners, suction cleaners and electric cleaners. The key difference between the two cleaners, is that the suction cleaners operate through the pool pump, sending debris back to the media filter, whilst the electric cleaners store debris in cleaner head.
Suction cleaners are connected to the pool pump. The flow from the pump allows the cleaner to suck up debris from the pool, and to move around the pool freely.
Automatic cleaners are ideal for the busy summer months. They help reduce pool maintenance by doing the work for you.
There are many different types and can vary in price significantly, some models can climb walls and steps. The majority of automatic cleaners have timers, so when your out and about, they still do the work for you, allowing you to go for a relaxing swim in a clean pool, after a hard days work.
These cleaners are also designed to be energy efficient, with a low voltage supply.
