What You Need To Know About Automatic Pool Cleaners

Automatic pool cleaners are incredibly hard working for you.  They clean up dirt, debris, even scrub away algae which will reduce the time you spend cleaning your pool, and can reduce chemical costs too.

The key is finding the right cleaner for you and your in-ground pool or above-ground pool.  Some cleaning attributes you may want to consider.

  1. Do you only need it to clean the bottom of your pool?
  2. Is your pool prone to algae–will the cleaner need to climb and scrub walls too?
  3.  Does your pool have a beach entry?
  4. Are you looking for an effective but energy efficient pool cleaner?
  5.  Would you like a remote control feature for quick cleaning?

How about all of the above or some combination?
