Robot Vacuum Cleaner & Automatic Pool Cleaner Review. Understand These Pool Vacuum Cleaners & Get The Best Pool Cleaner For You.
Are you an employer? A supervisor? Maybe a manager? Do you have employees working for you? Would like an employee or co-worker that never complains, is always on time, never asks for a pay raise, and does the job perfectly the first time? Then look no further than a robot vacuum cleaner.
Simply put, robot vacuums are an electrical pool cleaner that is put in your pool to clean it when the pool gets dirty. Many people would love to have a nice swimming pool but they really don’t look forward to the cleaning part of it. Back in the day pool cleaning was a chore, but with new advances in cleaner technologies your cleaning time can be cut in ½, if you know what to do. Pool owners can benefit from this new technology and invest in vacuum robots to do the cleaning job for them.
But how do you go about choosing the best robotic pool cleaner? What features do you need? Here are the answers.
We mainly have 3 choices when it comes to pool cleaners and they are:
The first two have been around for many years and have done a wonderful job, but there's a new kid on the block and he's really good. Robot pool cleans have the advantage of not being tethered to your pool. This means it's free to go about its business cleaning almost every inch of your pool. I can't tell you how many times I've walked into someone's backyard and have seen the suction-side or pressure-side cleaner on its side, the wheels spinning, kicking and fighting to get back. Like a turtle on its back. Not a pretty sight.
A robotic vacuum cleaner runs on low-voltage sources through ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets that automatically shut off power if there are any electrical imbalances. Power sources can be purchased separately.
That's really like asking what's the best vehicle. That all depends on some factors. We wouldn't get a Toyota Prius if we're in construction. And forget about getting a Chevy Silverado 3500 HD or Ford F-350 Quad Cab for commuting 100 miles per day. We need to understand their features, functions, and price. Only then we can make an informed decision that's best for your pool and your situation.
Of course this will be #1. We want a robot vacuum cleaner to clean our pools and remove dirt and debris. All the while doing it as quickly and efficiently as possible while still doing a good job.
You have many from which to choose. A robotic pool cleaner can get a little expensive, ranging in price from $250 all the way to $2500. You’ll want one made from high-quality materials that will last and give you value for your money but not break the bank.
A too heavy robotic vacuum cleaner can be a chore trying to get it out of your pool. While one that's too light won't clean properly. Size doesn't matter in this scenario, but weight sure does. Make sure the one you choose is big enough to properly clean your pool, yet light enough that you can take it out of the water.
This is one of the most over-looked areas of purchasing a robot pool vacuum cleaner. Make sure you get one that has a 360 degree swivel cord. The cleaner will be moving around your pool and climbing walls. The cord might get tangled. A swivel cord can help prevent tangles to give your robotic pool cleaner the proper area to clean your pool.
Make sure your robotic cleaner's brushes can handle the amount of dirt and debris in your pool. Hard-bristle brushes or rotating rubber brushes are recommended.
A robotic pool cleaner can’t do its job if it's slipping and sliding all over the place. What's recommend is wide traction made of quality rubber, or four-wheel-drive wheels made of rubber. This is to ensure your robotic cleaner can do its job of cleaning and is able to navigate possible slippery pool surfaces.
This means your robot vacuum cleaner can easily guide itself around your pool. Many of them have what's called a "7-day program". This allows you to program the cleaner so it can clean if you're away. And on some high end models can be operated with a remote control.
Some advantages of robot vacuum cleaners are:
A robot cleaner is very productive and efficient but there are many people who are still hesitant in buying one. One of the main reasons is that they are a bit higher in price than a normal pool vacuum. As the years pass, the technology gets better, and more companies jockey for your business, you’ll see the prices come down and swimming pool water maintenance becomes easier. This is great news for you because it will save you time and money in the long run.
Some have their own software that may scan the pool automatically for the most effective pattern for cleaning.
Some to look for include:
Unit doesn't move
Unit doesn’t pump
A robot vacuum cleaner is a very effective and efficient way to keep your pool clean so you and your family can spend more time swimming. And that’s why you have a pool anyway, right?
