What is a Robottic Pool Cleaner
Every owner of a swimming pool inevitably faces the cleaning. Filters and chemicals may purify and clean water, yet the hard particles of dirt deposit on the pool floor and organic sediments settle on the walls below a waterline, so you have to remove them manually. Dust, dirt, grit, insects, leaves, etc. may fall into the pool, breaching the comfort and microclimate. The pool cleaning by hands is laborious and ineffective. The leading companies in robotics developed robotic pool cleaners that are real technological wonders. Robotic pool cleaners are state-of-the-art products incorporating the advanced technologies. These space-saving appliances will undertake the cleaning, working under the preset program.
Customers who highly value their time and hunt for high-end technologies would surely appreciate having robotic vacuums at home as well. Also, consider our cordless vacuums, stick vacuums & electric brooms, and steam mops.
What Features to Compare
When you choose a robotic pool cleaner, you should know the type of your pool (in-ground, gunite, and inflatable), and its finish. Being guided by this information, you should choose a cleaner by a cleaning mode. There are two main types of robotic cleaners designed for specific types of cleaning:
- Robotic pool cleaners for walls and floor
- Robotic pool cleaners for floor
Robotic pool cleaners travel thanks to their four wheels or special rollers and caterpillars. The rollers serve not just as the means of transportation but also as effective tools for removing deposits and ingrained dirt from a pool coating. The rollers can be divided into several types either: combo brushes for film and tile; PVC brushes for film and gunite pools; super brushes for tile, film, stainless steel and composites. There are also special turbo brushes for quick clean-up, located before or inside the suction channel. Some robotic cleaners are equipped with the scrapers, designed to remove the dirt from the walls and the floor of the pool. On knowing this peculiarity, you will be able to choose a robotic pool cleaner to meet your own requirements and suit your daily tasks.
Self-sufficiency and performance
Self-sufficiency and performance are the criteria of no small importance in choosing a robotic pool cleaner. These parameters show how effectively a cleaner works and how much time it requires to do the job. This is influenced by software solutions, allowing a cleaner to run smartly and effectively. You should consider performance (gallons per hour) depending on the length and the depth of your pool, and the length of a power cord. The bigger the pool is, the higher performance and the longer power cord are required.
Usability is the third important aspect to draw your attention to. Usability includes implementation of controls, for example, availability of remote control. The ease of cleaning of a pool cleaner is significant as well. The special brushes and scrapers thoroughly clean the surface from bloom, dirt, algae, and microorganisms, and then the cleaner draws it together with water. Then, the dirt passes through a filter and deposits in a canister or porous bag, and the purified water leaks outside. Therefore, the ease of cleaning is also important. The other functions and elements such as a transportation caddy, timer and programming, quick cleaning, anti-tangle systems and accessory sensors will undoubtedly come in handy while cleaning the pool; they directly influence the usability.
