Intex Auto Pool Cleaner
Pool cleaners can make the life of a pool owner much easier. If your pool was built with a pool cleaner in mind, selection of a new or replacement pool cleaner is much simpler. But what if you never had a pool cleaner?
How does one wade through over 60 different pool cleaners - to find the pool cleaner that will do the best job for your pool type, shape and size?
Let's start simply - by first making a distinction between inground and above ground pool cleaners. This will narrow down your choices to two large categories. From there - it's a matter of weighing the benefits of each pool cleaner type: Suction, Robotic and Pressure type pool cleaners.
Pool cleaners for aboveground pools have distinct differences from their inground cousins:
1. Exclusively made for vinyl lined pool surfaces.
2. Made for flat-bottom pools, without a deep end.
3. Operate with slower flow rates, from smaller pool filter pumps.
For aboveground pools, the available choices for pool cleaners includes suction cleaners, robotic cleaners and pressure cleaners.
Suction cleaners attach to the skimmer - just plug the cleaner hose into the skimmer, below the skimmer basket, and the cleaner will vacuum the pool floor, bringing the debris into the pump basket. For larger debris loads, an in-line strainer can be installed between the hose and the skimmer, to overcome the problem of a small pump basket being quickly filled, and needing nearly constant emptying. Suction cleaners can also work with a skim-vac plate, made by Hayward, which allows the cleaner to deposit the debris into the larger, easier to clean skimmer basket.
NOTE: If you have a very small intex type pool, with a small pump/filter combo - sometimes without a pump basket, a suction type cleaner will not be the best choice for you. For an aboveground suction pool cleaner to work, it needs enough power available from a separate pump, one with a pump basket, and at least 3/4 - 1hp in size.
