Buying a New Pool Cleaner? What Is the Right One for You?

Gazing into your crystal-clear swimming pool is one of the most satisfying things you can do as a pool owner! And living in Brisbane, where you can swim for most of the year, having a clean swimming pool is a must. But it’s also true that cleaning the pool isn’t always the most pleasant process. It is time-consuming and for some pool owners, can be labour intensive.

pool cleaner is a great solution when you want to keep your pool clean without dealing with extra effort. There are various pool cleaners available for pool owners in Brisbane, so you can choose from different types and sizes. But how do you know which pool cleaner is right for you?

Below, we will look at the different types of pool cleaners, how they work and what their pros and cons are. This should help you make an informed choice for the size and type of swimming pool you own. For some pool owners, a  quality pool cover and roller can help keep your swimming pool clean.

Robotic Cleaner

Nowadays, you will see Australians switching to robotic pool cleaners. There’s no doubt that they are expensive, but the high pricing comes for a good reason: these machines do an outstanding job at cleaning your pool.

First things first, you do not need to connect it to the pool’s filtration system or any hose, it cleans your pool independently to the filtration system (pump and filter). You connect it to your 240v electrical outlet, place it in the pool and press go! Yes, it’s that easy.

Robot pool cleaners keep your pool clean all year round.

It’s an automatic cleaner, so it will not need your intervention unless you have to program it. While a motor is used to help the machine run, it is a low-voltage one, so it will also save energy.

If you do not like the look of hoses in your pool, robotic cleaners are a great investment. They do not need to stay in the pool all the time. When the job is done, you just remove the cleaner from the pool and store it until it’s time to use it again.

It’s important to choose the correct model for the size of your swimming pool. Each model has a different length cord, motor, and cleaning capacity. The downside to the robotic pool cleaner is the high initial cost when compared to other types of pool cleaners. Also, if they malfunction, it can be very expensive to have them repaired.

Suction Cleaner

Suction cleaners have become very common in recent years, and you have most likely seen a lot of people using them in their pools. The little machines move across the pool and suction all the dirt and debris inside it. If you opt for a high-end model, you could even get rid of those annoying stains that refuse to come out in any other way.

Suction pool cleaners come in two different types. One of them is the non-mechanical cleaner, which has a diaphragm or hammer and moves around in different patterns across the pool’s floor, as well as up the walls.

Automatic suction pool cleaners are effective at cleaning your swimming pool.

The other type is the mechanical suction cleaner, which takes advantage of wheels to move around the pool and syphon the dirt and debris. This type is great because it can also reach tighter corners.

It takes around 4-6 hours for a suction cleaner to clean your pool, and it is very easy to use. You might need to buy extra parts, but they are not hard to find.

The disadvantage is that they can be a bit expensive, and they only work when the pool filtration system is running. Aside from that, you will not see the stairs or walls being cleaned if you opt for non-geared suction.

Pressure Cleaner

If you frequently see large items like leaves, pebbles, or twigs in your pool, you have better chances of removing them with a pressure cleaner. This issue is common if you have trees near the pool or you live close to natural areas. When the weather gets windy or crazy, debris has an easier time joining your pool party.

Fortunately, it’s easy to clean large with a pressure pool cleaner. Not only does it collect large debris that ends up in your pool, but it can even get into tight corners and make sure no dirt is left behind. Also, it’s able to climb very well in fiberglass and tile, but also on other surfaces.

Pressure pool cleaners are excellent for collecting large debris in your swimming pool.

Pressure pool cleaners have an onboard bag that you need to empty regularly unless you want the machine to stop working properly. It’s a little extra maintenance, but nothing compared to the work you put in when you’re cleaning a pool manually.

These cleaners are extremely fast. In 2-3 hours, your pool will be clean. They also have a long hose, which makes them ideal if you have a large pool.

Your pool must have a pressure line if you want the pressure cleaner to function. A separate booster pump may also be necessary, but it depends on the particular brand you get. If you do not consider these, a pressure cleaner will not be of much help.

Also, keep in mind that these models are on the pricier side.

Handheld Cleaner

Handheld cleaners are pretty straightforward. They are not little machines that clean your pool automatically. Instead, a handheld cleaner requires manual operation. That’s right, it involved you standing on the side of the pool, pushing it around on a pole!

If you don’t mind lending some effort, handheld pool cleaners are a great option, mainly because they are not that expensive. Also, they are pretty great if you’re new to pool cleaning because they are easy to work with and very light. And let’s face it, focusing on every leaf and dirty section of your pool and vacuuming it up is very satisfying. Who doesn’t like instant results?

Handheld swimming pool vacuum cleaners are a cheap and easy way to clean your pool.

Handheld pool cleaners have a telescopic pole that attaches to a vacuum hose and head. Then, they connect to the skimmer box. The pool owner then simply goes with it across the pool floor, cleaning all dirt and debris.

What’s great is that you can make the cleaning process more effective by attaching other accessories to it, such as scrub brushes. If your pool is tainted by debris or stubborn stains, a scrub brush will do the job. Also, you can add some pool flocculant to the pool so that you can vacuum the microparticles.

Even though it’s great for entry-level pool cleaners, it is more suitable for people who have enough body strength. Also, it requires a lot of patience. Cleaning the pool manually takes a lot of time – so, if you’re in a rush, this pool cleaner is NOT for you.
