In Australia there are currently three common types of automatic pool cleaners used in domestic pools - suction, pressure and robotic.
Suction cleaners are the most common automatic pool cleaners in Australia. They work in much the same way as a vacuum cleaner, operating when the pool pump is turned on, they suck leaves and debris into the skimmer basket.
Pressure cleaners work from a dedicated return line and run by water pressure from the pump. This water pressure drives the cleaner around the pool. Pressure cleaners don't suck leaves and debris into your pool filter or pump basket, thereby taking the load off your filtration system. They are perfect for pools in leafy areas with heavy debris.
With advancement in technology, robotic cleaners are now an affordable and effective option for many pool owners. Robotic cleaners work independently from the filter and pump and are driven by an electric motor inside the unit. They are self-contained, collecting dirt and debris in a bag or cartridge within the cleaner.
Robotic cleaners have built in intelligence that ensures they don't get stuck in corners and on steps, they also provide a more thorough and complete clean than any other cleaner.
