The best tool to clean your pool is a pool cleaner as it’s the most efficient way to clean a pool. There are different types of automatic pool cleaners to choose from.
Basically, the cleaners work on suction as they scrub the floor and then suck the dirt. Suction cleaners have their benefits as they cost less and have less moving parts. They are easy to maintain but have difficulty in optimal cleaning. They also put a lot of pressure on the filters.
The cleaner is propelled by the pressure side line but there is an additional booster pump required to run the pump. Though the cost is low and it is easier to maintain, it requires the pool pump to run.
It is without a doubt that robotics is the best of the three. Though it may come at a cost it’s by far the best and the most efficient option. They use suction rather than use water pressure to clean the dirt at the bottom of the pool.
