Robotic pool cleaners, like the Hayward AquaVac® 500, are powered by a transformer that plugs into a GFCI outlet and converts the electricity to a very low voltage. Robotic cleaners are equipped with their own onboard pump and filter, an addition that works independently of your standard pool pump and filter system. They also have computer chips to facilitate different programming modes and conveniently adapt the cleaner to the specifics of your pool. Robotic cleaners are capable of scrubbing and sucking up debris from the bottom of your pool as well as the walls. They are great at increasing the circulation of water by using their own filtration system and incorporated pump. Robotic cleaners exceed others in performance and reliability. Why is AquaVac® 500 the Product of the Month? The new AquaVac® 500 robotic cleaner comes equipped with a microprocessor-based program that determines the most efficient cleaning path possible using up to 94% less energy. Our robotic cleaner features a Dual-Mode technology which allows users to now choose from two cleaning programs versus just one standard pool cleaner option.
