To keep a pool clean and in good condition takes time but pool cleaning is a task that has to be performed over and over again. The job however, can be made a lot easier by using an automatic pool cleaner for your in-ground pool. Also referred to as pool vacuums, these cleaners make the job of cleaning a pool much easier.
There are four main types of cleaners to choose from, classified by the drive mechanism used:
1- Return-side driven water outflow being returned to the pool is used for locomotion and debris suction, via the venturi effect.
2- Pressure driven a minor variation of return-side driven, water outflow is pressurized using a secondary "booster" pump. This high pressure water is used for locomotion and debris suction, via the venturi effect.
3- Suction-side driven water being pumped out of the pool via its skimmer or drains is used for locomotion and debris suction.
4- Electronic & Robotic an external electrical power cord is used to drive motors used for locomotion and suction.
