6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, February 28, 2012 MB 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. Today's top-of-the- line products combine user-friendly operation with water, energy and chemical conservation features Bryan Goh Robotic cleaners are a fuss-free way to keep the pool clean. 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. • Carports • Awnings • Guttering • Enclosures REAL SAVINGS REAL SAVINGS 9833 7877 AWNINGS/CARPORTS 2270271 28/2 Shuttermaster Awnings-Shutters-Blinds-Doors 1300 886 814 www.shuttermaster.com.au Up to 40% OFF SALE 2266206i 10/5 FREE QUOTE 7 DAYS ALL AREAS 9838 9090 FREE MEASURE & QUOTE Lifetime Warranty www.justforyouwardrobes.com.au DESIGNED TO SUIT YOUR BUDGET Timber Coloured panel Painted Mirrored Sliding p Hinged Built-inWardrobe SPECIALISTS JUST FOR YOU WARDROBES PTY.LTD Y Lic. 185684C 2174088K wk5 *Discounts off R.R.P. on selected ranges only.
