The Three Kinds
Many people often wonder which type of above ground pool vacuum cleaner would be best for their situation. In this article I will explain all that you will need to know each kind so that you will be able to make an informed choice on the above ground pool vacuum that will be best for your needs.
There are 3 types of above ground pool vacuum cleaners. They include: manual, automatic, and robotic. Each type varies in several unique ways. Some of them require more effort and time compared to the others, while others are more of a simple ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ style. Let’s look closer:
Manual Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners
Manual cleaners are definitely the most affordable kind. But these type require more time, and if you consider that time is money, then these type are definitely not what you will want! The manual vacuum connects to a pole. The device connects to the pool’s filter by way of a hose-pipe. It sucks the particles from the floor of the swimming pool and sends it to the pool’s filter system. During this entire process, you have to physically push the pole so that it covers the whole floor of the swimming pool. It requires some physical effort, and might also require more strength and energy, especially if the pool is large. Beside that, it may not be enjoyable to stand out below the scorching heat of the sun every day as you vacuum your swimming pool.
Automatic Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners
Automatic cleaners come in the moderate price range. They have become quite popular and common everywhere. They are self-propelled and crawl across the floor of the pool, collecting leaves, twigs, and other objects. They send the dirt to the filter system via a hose which is connected to it. They are extremely popular because they need very little time and energy. All that you are required to do is drop it into the pool and come back to pull it out when it is finished. You may do whatever you please while it cleans the pool. Or you can simply relax and enjoy the warn weather outside or the cool air conditioning inside. This type is comparatively inexpensive, and it is also an excellent bargain if you take into account the time it will save you with its ‘set it-and-forget’ advantage.
Robotic Above Ground Pool Vacuum Cleaners
Robotic cleaners are like automatic ones simply because they are self propelled. Like the automatic ones, they need almost no attention. It really is as easy as dropping it into the swimming pool and going back to remove it when it is done. They are the most costly among the three kinds of cleaners. However, they are the most efficient ones. Unlike the other two kinds, they do not send the dirt through the pool’s filtration system, but instead, keep it it inside themselves. Once you remove it from the pool, you can empty its container. This prevents deterioration of your pump and filter, causing them to last longer and work more efficiently. This type of vacuum will clean perfectly, leaving the floor of the pool spotless.
Now you know all about the three different kinds of above ground pool vacuum cleaners. I hope I have helped in making your decision simple!
