Purchasing the correct pool auto cleaner
When buying a pool auto cleaner there are a few factors to take into consideration as many sales consultants in these pool shops do not ask you these questions as they are often more after the sale then advising you, saving you the hassle of buying something which will not work for you.
The biggest factor here is to look at the surrounding area of your swimming pool and see what trees and plants are within 7 – 10 meters of the pool. Once this is established you will find answering the question very simple.
- Any tree or plant which drops maple leaves, acorns, goose berry, pine cones and anything similar do not purchase a auto cleaner which is track driven, gear driven or has a diaphragm.
- Pools with thick grass and smaller leaves around them, one should invest in a leaf skimmer to catch the majority of the leaves and items landing on the water first as well as invest in a auto cleaner which runs on a single barrel, double barrel or hammer action such as the kreepy pro’s, gemini twinsweep etc..
- Short grass no trees well basically just about any pool cleaner will work and we suggest the mx series or dominator series
