It is undeniable that swimming pools provide us with a lot of fun for our family and friends. After a stressful office work, spend some time refreshing in your very own pool. However, it doesn’t just give us pleasure because some people find it difficult to deal with, especially when it comes to cleaning, and I mean regular cleaning.
If you are one of those people who think regular pool cleaning is a bane, then you need to know some important facts in order to become an effective pool owner. You must know which of the cleaners will adapt best to the type of swimming pool you have.
There are many swimming pool cleaners available for you to apply and they can be categorized into four types:
Manual swimming pool cleaners
Hand pool cleaners are commonly used for small swimming pools (generally for home pools). If you are on financial constraints, hand cleaners may be the best fit for you. These are the cheapest compared to other types. However, it can be physically demanding and daunting for you, and take time. But it’s really up to you how you do the cleaning to make it enjoyable rather than frustrating.
Side suction cleaners
Side suction cleaners are cleaners that require a hose connection to your pool. It is usually attached to the scraper and you need to be careful to ensure this type of cleaner works well with the scraper. This type of cleaner removes dirt by creating a suction under the cleaner.
Automatic pool cleaner
Another type that can help you clean the pool is using an automatic pool cleaner. This is a breakthrough for the manual pool cleaning system. With these types of cleaners, all you have to do is put it in the pool, turn on the power supply, and then let it do the housework. Automatic pool cleaners can remove leaves, sand, stones and other foreign debris from the pool. The disadvantage of this type of detergent is that it randomly cleans the pool. Although automatic swimming cleaners today use advanced sensors to detect foreign debris and litter, they are no match for human hygiene when it comes to cleaning quality.
Automatic swimming pool cleaners
It is very similar to an automatic swimming pool cleaner, but with the addition of “human characteristics”. In other words, this type of detergent is designed to automate the cleaning process while trying to imitate how humans do it. Robotic cleaners have a micro-chip built in so they can clean swimming pools on a scheduled, not random, basis. However, this type of detergent is very expensive (the most expensive) and is usually only used on large swimming pools.
Now that you have an idea of the types of pool cleaners, I hope your pool will give you a fun and stress-free cleaning.
