The 3 Types of Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners: Choosing The Right One
Often people wonder which kind of above ground pool vacuum cleaner would be best for their needs. Here I will tell you everything you will need to know each kind so that you will be able to make the best choice on the above ground pool vacuum that will be best for your needs.
You will find 3 types of above ground pool vacuum cleaners. They are: manual, automatic, and robotic. Each kind is different in certain unique ways. Certain ones require more work and time relative to the others, while some are more of a simple ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ style. Let’s have a look:
Manual Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners
Manual cleaners are definitely the most affordable type. But these kind need more time, and if you consider that time is money, then these kind are certainly not the best kind for you! The manual cleaner connects to a pole. The unit attaches to the pool’s filter via a hose-pipe. It sucks the dirt from the bottom surface of the swimming pool and transfers it to the pool’s filtration system. During this whole process, you have to physically push the pole so that it covers the entire floor of the swimming pool. It requires some physical effort, and might also require more strength and energy, especially if the pool is big. Aside from that, it may not be fun to stand out under the scorching heat of the sun every day as you vacuum your Swimming pool leaf vacuum.
Automatic Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners
Automatic cleaners are available in the moderate price range. They have become quite popular and common everywhere. They are self-propelled and roam over the bottom of the pool, collecting leaves, sticks, and other objects. They carry the dirt to the filter system by way of a hose which is attached to it. They are hugely popular because they need very little time and energy. All that you are required to do is drop it into the pool and return to remove it when it is finished. You may do whatever you please while it vacuums the pool. Or you can simply relax and enjoy the sunshine outdoors or the air conditioning indoors. This type is relatively inexpensive, and it is also great bargain if you consider the time it will save you with its ‘set it-and-forget’ advantage.
Robotic Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners
Robotic cleaners are similar to automatic ones simply because they are self propelled. Just like the automatic ones, they require almost no attention. It really is as simple as placing it into the swimming pool and coming back to remove it when it is done. They are the most costly among the three varieties of cleaners. However, they are the most efficient kind. Unlike the other two styles, they do not send the dirt through the pool’s filtration system, but instead, store it within themselves. Once you remove it from the pool, you can empty its container. This prevents the break down of your pump and filter, letting them last longer and run more efficiently. This style of vacuum will clean perfectly, leaving the floor of the pool spotless.
Now you know all about the three different varieties of above ground pool vacuum cleaners. Hopefully I have helped to make your decision easier!
