The result is a dramatic reduction in energy costs Less maintenance: Robotic cleaners vacuum and trap pool debris in self-contained compart- ments or bags. Total pool cleaning: These clever little cleaners are equipped with scrubbing brushes, so not only do they vacuum the pool's floor and walls but they also scrub the actual surface, regardless of whether it's vinyl, fibreglass or concrete. This keeps it looking in peak condition for longer. Clearer water for swim- ming: Improve the circulation resulting in less algae growth and improved water chemistry. Perfect for time-poor peo- ple: Most will clean the entire pool in a matter of a few hours. Simply place the cleaner in the pool and it will do the rest. EFFICIENT POOLING RESOURCES ROBOTIC CLEANERS POPULAR Janita Singh FACTFILE Robotic cleaners not only keep the pool floor and walls clean, they also improve water circulation. This helps maintain the correct water chemistry while also reducing the likelihood of algae growth. Robotic cleaners are a fuss-free way to keep the pool floor and walls clean. Today's top-of-the- line products combine user-friendly operation with water, energy and chemical conservation features Bryan Goh THERE is nothing more enticing than the allure of a sparkling pool on a warm day, especially when you don't have to worry about its cleaning. It comes as no surprise then to learn that robotic pool cleaners are gaining popularity with time- poor homeowners. ''Robotic cleaners have evolved significantly over the past five years,'' Waterco marketing direc- tor Bryan Goh says. ''Today's top-of-the-line prod- ucts combine user-friendly oper- ation with water, energy and chemical conservation features,'' he said. The majority of pool cleaners in the market today are suction cleaners. However, there are various re- strictions of suction cleaners, in- cluding the fact that they are fitted into a pool's skimmer, reducing its skimming ability and also reduc- ing its turnover by adding a restriction to its circulation. ''To operate a cleaner effective- ly, the pool pump needs to operate at higher speeds,'' Mr Goh ex- plains. ''Plus, after heavy rainfall or storms, there can be quite a lot of debris in the pool, therefore if a suction cleaner is operated, the debris goes straight to the fil- tration system, which requires backwashing or maintenance. With a robotic cleaner, it is trap- ped within it,'' he said. newslocal.com.au Discover Local. For tradies, services and jobs in your local area, grab your NewsLocal newspaper.
