Robotic Pool Cleaner

The robotic pool cleaner is the new revolutionized pool cleaning system that has taken the pool industry by storm, not to mention the way it has crept into pool owner's hearts from its introduction onto the market. The robotic pool cleaner displays its name perfectly; it is a robot that is designed to clean your pool from the surface to its brim, all in one long sweep. So why would you choose to purchase a robotic pool cleaner instead of a regular automatic pool cleaner? Firstly, automatic pool cleaners do clean your pool thoroughly and they have provided many pool owners with a satisfied purchase, however, there are always those stains, watermarks or dust particles that never want to disappear from the pool and that the automatic cleaner is unable to remove. If you are tired of scrubbing the rim of your pool's surface in a lost effort to remove the dirty water stains, then the robotic pool cleaner is perfect for you.

The robotic pool cleaner carries many attributes above that of regular automatic pool cleaners. Primarily, the robotic pool cleaner is able to remove all dirt and debris from the pool's surface; it is able to travel quickly and efficiently from one are of the pool to the next, up and down stairs and around all turns, scrubbing the surface providing it with an effective clean. Whilst the robotic pool cleaner is busy removing the stains from your pool's surface, it is also busy sucking up all the dirt and debris, so you are left with a clean, sparkling and hygienic pool. A second advantage carried by the robotic pool cleaner is that it is able to remove those tough water and dirt stains that build up on the pool's rim and surface. Usually, these stains require chemical treatment and much scrubbing before they are removed but with the robotic pool cleaner, used on a daily basis for a consecutive period, the stains will be removed naturally.

The only true disadvantage posed by the use of a robotic pool cleaner is that it is expensive to purchase, however, when considering the advantages it offers and how much money you are saving on maintenance of regular pool equipment, the robotic pool cleaner is reasonably priced. Upon purchasing a robotic pool cleaner, you no longer need to worry about purchasing hoses, filters or maintenance equipment. The robotic pool cleaner works independently of your pool and needs no hoses, pipes or additional equipment in order to function. From the above statement, it would be obvious to say that the robotic pool cleaner also has its own built in filtration system, one so powerful in fact, that it is able to filter through thousands of gallons of water. The robotic pool cleaner is ideal for use in big swimming pools as it is able to filter and clean up to 90 000 gallons of water overnight. Its filtration system is top of the range and you can be ensured that the smallest dirt particles are being removed from your pool's water. The robotic pool cleaner is therefore a fantastic alternative to any other pool cleaning equipment on the market.

 

A major California electrical provider has concluded that robotic pool cleaners can contribute significantly to energy efficiency and cost savings.

Pacific Gas & Electric spent two years studying the efficiency of automatic pool cleaners. In 2009, it evaluated suction and pressure side cleaners, which operate off of the pool pump or use a separate booster pump.

Last year, it tested robotic cleaners, which operate off of a separate, low-voltage power supply.

Its conclusion? Operating for three hours per day, 365 days per year, robotic cleaners can save consumers more than $500 per year in energy cost compared to cleaners that operate off the pool's filtration pump and more than $800 per year compared to cleaners that use a separate booster pump.

The average robotic cleaner, PG&E found, consumes 0.18 kilowatts of energy for each hour it operates. At three hours per day, 365 per year, the annual power consumption for a robotic cleaner in 197.1 kilowatts. At an average cost of 30 cents per kilowatt, the annual energy cost for robotic cleaner is about $59.

For Cleaners powered by the pool filter pump, the utility calculated energy consumption of 1.526 kilowatts per house, or about 1,671 kw per year, at an annual cost of $501.

Booster-pump-powered cleaners consumed 2.73 kilowatts per hour, PG&E found, for a total of 2,989.35 kw per year at an annual cost of $897.

PG&E report concluded that for pools with two-speed filtration pumps, pool cleaner power demand and energy use can be reduced using a robotic cleaner while operating the pool pump at low flow and speed for optimum filtration efficiency. 

"Given the complexity and cost of setting up hydraulic cleaners to operate at maximum efficiency," the report stated, "and the relative simplicity of adding a robotic cleaner while operating pool pump for maximum filtration efficiency, it is recommended that consideration be given to the class of robotic cleaners, with selection for maximum cleaning performance in individuals pools left to pool professionals."
