What Is The Absolute Cheapest Type Of Pool Cleaners  

by Pool Builders on 03-29-2009 in Articles

So whats wrong with saving some money. Sure you want a clean pool with sparkling water in it but do you really have to shell out hundreds of dollars to do it. Also, with so much being written about the absolute necessity of having just the right sized pool cleaner, can you really get by with a smaller less powerful unit?

The Need For Pool Cleaners

The real truth is that people really don't "need" pool cleaners at all. For years pool owners got along without them and their pools were kept clean, none the less. However; this task was accomplished through the use of manual methods such as long handled scrub brushed and vacuum attachments.

Inexpensive Pool Cleaners

However; today the price is so low on the cheapest models of pool cleaners that it just makes so much more sense to spend the spend the $100 or so to buy one of the cheaper suction side pool cleaners then to spend hours each week cleaning a swimming pool.

Suction Side Pool Cleaners

Suction side pool cleaners are the absolute simplest models and they are operated off of your pools pump. A hose is simply connected to it then to the pump inlet and it will do good job in a smaller pool that has minimal cleaning requirements.

Pressure Side Pool Cleaners

However; if you have a larger above ground pool, you may be better served by one of the pressure side pool cleaners. They too run off of the pools pump but they are connected to the pumps outlet, hence; the name "pressure side.

Mechanical Pool Cleaners

For a cement lined, built in pool there are the mechanical pool cleaners that crawl around the pool. They have a dual purpose and that is to vacuum up the heavy debris and to scrub the concrete sides of the pool with rotating brushes.
