RPT Plus Robot Pool Cleaner
Maintaining a crystal-clear pool doesn't have to be a hassle. With the right pool cleaning equipment, you can effortlessly keep your backyard oasis in top condition. At AstralPool, we understand that every pool is unique, and that's why we offer a diverse range of pool cleaning systems to fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget. Let's dive in and explore the various types of pool cleaners to find the perfect match for you and your pool.
A manual pool vacuum is a type of pool cleaner that relies on manual labour to function, which consists of a vacuum head attached to a telepole with a hose that connects to the special fitting in the skimmer box. This could take 45 minutes to an hour each time to pick up leaves, dirt and debris.
Pressure pool cleaners use a booster pump to blast the pool surface with filtered water and collect debris in their own containers, easing the strain on your filtration system.
These types of cleaners rely on suction to get them moving and to allow them to vacuum the debris from the pool floor. The units are generally cheaper to install than some other cleaners and operate when the filtration system is operating. However, they can be less effective in areas with lots of leaves and may reduce water flow, potentially causing damage to the pool pump. The only other thing to remember with a suction pool cleaner is to make sure your filter is clean. A dirty filter reduces water flow and, therefore, suction, which affects the ability of the pool cleaner to move.
Robotic pool cleaners are driven by electric motors inside the unit. The electricity that powers the cleaner comes from a transformer that you plug into an outdoor outlet. The transformer converts the outlet electricity to a low voltage which is then connected to the cleaner via a long cord.
With their inbuilt intelligence, they know how to map the shape and size of your pool to ensure no spot is missed, and they collect small and large debris in their own filter. Not only do they clean, but they also circulate water and scrub walls and tile lines, reducing the need for manual cleaning. Plus, they're not connected to the skimmer box, allowing for continuous pool skimming action.
In-floor cleaning systems are in-built systems that are installed together with your swimming pool, requiring virtually no maintenance after installation. These types of cleaners use an individual pump and a distribution system that directs debris to several collection points, which are cleaned out by the pool filter.
With the right pool cleaners, regular maintenance and knowledge, it can actually be enjoyable and efficient when doing your weekly clean. Whether you're looking for a robotic, suction or pressure cleaner, it's crucial to consider factors such as the pool shape, the pool size, and your budget.
