Pool owners can expect a massive upgrade in how they keep their pools clean.
For many pool owners, investing in a robotic pool cleaner can seem like a costly step they don’t need to take. Don’t pools already have circulation pumps built in? Why invest in something that seems unnecessary?
There are a lot of advantages to having a robotic cleaner handle the regular cleaning process on your behalf. In this article, we want to explain the advantages of a robotic cleaner for your pool—and what types of machines we would recommend for this job.
#1: Robotic Cleaners Have Powerful Tools Equipped for Extra Cleaning
Robotic cleaners are equipped with powerful high-speed scrubbing brushes. They can remove debris with a filtration basket and some models can even be controlled by your smart device via Bluetooth. That’s both power and convenience that you won’t get by simply relying on your circulation pump and pool filters.
#2: Robotic Cleaners Reduce the Energy You Use in Cleaning
Many robotic cleaners, like the ones offered by Pentair, use a low-voltage power source while they do their job. They don’t rely on either your pool pump or a booster pump, which means you’ll save more money in the long run by reducing the amount of energy you use to clean your pool.
#3: Robotic Cleaners are Easy to Use
These devices are easy to use and to clean. Pool owners get the benefit of powerful technology without having to do much in the way of programming. For instance, you can easily program cleaners to “map” out the layout of your pool, which means your cleaner will cover the entire pool and not just the same section.
What Do We Recommend?
We’ve talked about the advantages of robotic cleaners, but we also want to share what we think will be the most useful to you. Pentair makes an excellent series of robotic cleaners that are suited for all types of pools. If you have an above-ground pool, then the Prowler 910 is the device we’d recommend. For in-ground pools, we recommend either the Prowler 920 or the Prowler 930, the latter of which can be controlled with your smartphone.
