Keeping Your Florida Pool Clean The Easy Way

by | Nov 11, 2019 | Pool Maintenance

What is the point of having pool if you need to spend the best part of your Saturday cleaning it?

Every year more and more automatic cleaners arrive on the market. Likely you have all seen those little robots that automatically wander the floor of your pool, methodically cleaning every inch over and over again.

You may even name yours by giving it a name like Bob. You will find that having a pool cleaner is money well spent., and after you do purchase one, you will wonder why you did not buy one earlier.

Today you can spend almost any amount of money on a pool cleaning system the top of the line and by far the best are the built in floor system. These will have a series of small water jets automatically pop up from the floor in a pre-arraigned order and time,  spraying water to clean and rinse the debris in the direction of the drain, and stirring up little bits to be filtered out by the filter. Obviously this in floor system is on the high end of the spectrum and is generally installed at the same time the pool is built as much planning and piping is needed to run such a system.

The other types of swimming pool cleaners are the suction side or pressure side cleaners they operate using the filter pump. Some have brushes much like your home vacuum or small jets that direct the dirt into the onboard filter or the suction line of the main filter. These robotic cleaners follow a random pattern and may take several hours to completely clean the pool unfortunately they will not be able to clean in corners or behind ladders. Every type of pool cleaners have one thing in common they do not clean every part you ay still have to clean your tile and coping by hand, that is what your kids are for right? The biggest drawback to the robotic filters is the need to be unhooked when you want to use the pool while the kids have no problem unhooking Bob when they want to go for a swim Bob never seems to get hooked back up.

Robotic pool cleaners use electricity t power themselves around the pool using a spinning brush to dislodge dirt and send through their onboard filter system the best part about these is they do not require the pools filter pump to be on to run, no suction or pressure lines need to be hooked up drop the robot in the pool and stand back and let it do its job. The robotic pool cleaners are more expensive than the pump driven cleaners but are much less expensive than an in floor system. So whatever type of cleaner you are looking at be sure it is right for the material your pool is constructed out of, cleaners that work good on a concrete pool may not be suitable for a vinyl or plaster pool
