One of the hardest things in having your own a swimming pool is the part where you have to clean it. If you are using the manual method, there is no doubt that you have to use a lot of elbow grease just to make your pool area sparkling clean. However, since there are now automatic pool cleaners that you can use, you can spare yourself with all the hard work and relax while your pool is being cleaned.

The first thing that you should be figuring out is on what item you want your pool cleaner to specialize. Yes, all pool cleaners do basically the same thing; clean your swimming pool. But there are automatic pool cleaners which are good in cleaning leaves, twigs, acorns, and other large debris that falls in your pool. While there are others who are good in cleaning sediments, sand, dirt and other small impurities.

If your pool is surrounded by trees, well then you have to pick the type that is good in cleaning leaves and twigs. If dust and dirt are most likely to set on your pool, then you must pick the type of automatic pool cleaners that concentrates on cleaning this type of impurities.

Once you have figured out what kind of debris you want out of your pool, the next thing to think about is whether you would like to have a pressure or a suction type of automatic pool cleaner.

The pressure side cleaners are very ideal in cleaning away leaf and acorn. This type of cleaners are plugged into the inside pool wall and filters water returning back to the pool. Most of the time, this types of cleaners works by spraying water directly to the net or the cloth bag. Once this cloth bags are full of leaves and other debris it collected, it needs to be cleaned. Pressure side cleaners are great in removing large debris because they have a short way to travel up the throat into the bag.

The suction side cleaners are great for removing san dirt and other sediments. This cleaner functions off the suction that is provided by from the filter or the circulation pump. When the sediment and other small debris are caught, they need to travel the length of the hose and the underground piping for it to be caught by the filtration system of your swimming pool.
