The answers to these questions are not simple and straightforward as there are many types and models. Though they offer many advantages, there are a few disadvantages too. Here are a few pros and cons of robotic pool cleaners.
There are three types of pool cleaners, and each has its advantages and disadvantages
Pressure pool cleaner: The pressure generated from the water pump is used to clean the swimming pool in the pressure pool cleaner. Based on the type of model, you can connect it to your pool’s circulation pump while there are other models which use a booster pump. There is a bag attached to the pool cleaner which is used to scoop the debris and collect it. This type is best suited for a swimming pool with trees around. This pool cleaner does not have to be cleaned often as the debris is not collected in the filter, even though it cleans the large objects like leaves and grasses very well. It has low maintenance and is durable. However, it cannot be used to remove small particles.
Suction pool cleaner: This cleaner uses suction and vacuum to remove the debris from the pool. A few models can also scrub the walls of the pool. The debris sucked is lodged in the filter of the pool cleaner. This cleaner can clean small particles like dirt and sand very well, with even the walls being scrubbed in some models. It is also one of the more cheaper pool cleaner models. Its disadvantage lies in the fact that it requires high maintenance and it cannot be used on floating debris.
Robotic pool cleaner: It is driven by an electric motor and powered by an outdoor outlet. It has a pump and a filter of its own to collect debris. Almost all models have a processor chip to monitor the activity of the pool cleaner, and later this activity is used to implement better cleaning, so it can teach itself to clean better. Some models also come with remote control. It cleans large as well as small debris well from the swimming pool and can scrub walls and tiles too. It is extremely useful in circulating the water in the pool, however its movement is dependent on the electric cord length. The pump and the filter have to be frequently cleaned for better cleaning efficiency and it is the most expensive model of automatic pool cleaners on the market.
