In the pool industry, the big trade shows are held during the off-season – November…
Do you like gadgets? Are you always looking to adopt new technology to make your life easier? Do you own an inground pool? If you answered yes, then you need a robotic pool cleaner for your inground pool.
We love these little robots. They’re like a Roomba for your pool, only better.
They’re Better Than Other Automatic Pool Cleaners
There are 3 main types of automatic pool cleaners. If you don’t want to hire a pool care company to keep the pool clean in the summer, or you want a robot to take care of any cleaning that’s needed between visits from the pros, getting an automatic pool cleaner is a smart move.
Suction-Side Pool Cleaner
Suction-side pool cleaners use suction from your skimmer to move around your pool and pick up smaller debris from the pool bottom only. They do not clean the sides, and many of them cannot handle larger debris such as leaves and acorns.
Because they rely on your filter system, you need to monitor the progress to make sure nothing goes wrong. No one should be allowed into the pool during this time.
Pressure-Side Pool Cleaner
Pressure-side pool cleaners are a step up, as they can clean up both large and small debris. They attach to a return jet in your inground pool. They then use the water pressure from your pool pump to move around the pool bottom, and up the pool sides. It creates a vortex and pulls debris into its own filter bag.
It is also recommended that you monitor the cleaning process to make sure nothing goes wrong. No one should be allowed in the pool during cleaning.
Robotic Pool Cleaner
A robotic pool cleaner is a high-end automatic pool cleaner. Not only does it do a better job of cleaning both large and small debris from your pool, but it is more energy efficient. Since they plug into a low-voltage power source, they don’t interfere with your pool pump or filtration system.
Pentair robotic pool cleaners are fast and efficient. They thoroughly clean the pool bottom, pool walls, and tile line. And you don’t have to stand around and watch it to make sure nothing goes wrong. They have high-speed scrubbing brushes, programmable cleaning schedules, and remote-control options – including smart device control via Bluetooth®.
As always, no one should be allowed in the pool during cleaning.
We Recommend Pentair Robotic Pool Cleaners
A robotic pool cleaner will cost more than other automatic pool cleaners, but we think they’re worth the money. We highly recommend a robotic pool cleaner from Pentair. They are a leader in the pool industry, developing high-tech products for your pool.
If you’re on a budget, Pentair also offers excellent pressure-side pool cleaners.
Now Signing Pool Care Contracts for 2021
While a robotic pool cleaner can certainly make regular cleaning of your inground pool easier, we recommend having professionals open and close your pool for the season. We are now signing up clients for our pool care packages. You can choose from the comprehensive opening, summer maintenance, and winterization package, pool opening and closing, summer pool care, or just pool opening.
Pool chemicals are included in all packages.
