This is a guest post given by Jenny Wadlow on the topic of Which Robotic Pool Cleaner Is Best For You, all images and matter are being given by him only.
Back in the day, the very idea of a robotic swimming pool cleaner was just a glint in some mad scientist’s bloodshot eye. But nowadays we not only have such a device at our disposal, there are quite a few to choose from! So how does the discerning pool owner choose the best one for their pool and which ones are best avoided? We’ve got rid of the rest and have 2 of the best right here. This article will offer an unbiased opinion on both of these watery bad boys and hopefully there will be a clear winner – Enjoy!
Dolphin Premier Pool Cleaner – http://www.poolexpress.com/automatic-pool-cleaners/dolphin-premier-robotic-pool-cleaner/
Premier certainly knows a thing or three about robotic pool cleaners and their latest model is something to write home about! The Maytronics based team started working on robotic pool cleaners back in 1983, and that is quite some pedigree. Previous robotic pool cleaners have relied on AC motors and these have worked well but are thirsty on juice. The latest version utilises a DC motor setup and this has proved to be almost 90% more efficient. The beauty of the latest model is the sheer versatility onboard, because this bad boy can manage 4 different pool cleaning activities! You simply need to change the bag type and you’ll be able to do the following with ease:
- Picking up large floating leaves
- Cleaning fine debris and algae
- Basic cleaning duties
- Sweeping and general detailing.
One of the great things about the latest model is its ability to clean in a certain pattern. Older models have simply wandered around aimlessly and have taken an age to clean your pool. This model uses a scanning and coverage controlling software onboard that calculates everything for you. Once you see the Dolphin do its stuff, you’ll never work up a sweat again!
Polaris Vac-Sweep 360 http://www.polarispool.com/Pressure/Polaris-360.aspx
Polaris are another giant of pool cleaning technology and they’ve pulled out all the stops here with the Vac-Sweep 360. This beast works as a pressure-side pool cleaner and manages to operate without the need for a separate booster pump. The 360 features an all-wheel drive setup with excellent cleaning technology. The triple jets offer a thorough cleaning experience and this model works happily in all in-ground pools of any shape or size. Once you unleash the 360 on your rather grimy swimming pool you will watch in amazement as it gets to work on your walls and pool bottom. It will sweep, scrub and vacuum happily away without any input required from yourself. You’ll also get 31 feet of feed hose and a handy filter bag for grabbing that oversize debris we love so much. You can get the 360 in blue or a moody black to suit those dark based pools. It’s pretty good and we would not hesitate to recommend this in a heartbeat.
And The Winner is…
Well, both of these robotic pool cleaners seem to be the business but for us the winner has to be the Dolphin!
