In Pool Maintenance How To by Platinum Pools

Do you want to be able to clean your pool with a swipe on your phone? Do you want to pre-program a cleaning schedule or activate a quick clean mode to do the job instantly? There are pool cleaning robots that can do all that and more. It is important to consider the swimming pool’s budget, size, shape, and amount of debris that typically accumulates.

Before Buying a Robotic Cleaner

It is essential to seek advice from a pool professional before purchasing a robotic cleaner. However, there are two important elements you should consider before buying:

How it Works

Some pool cleaners vacuum the surface of your pool to pick up dirt and debris before it sinks, while others crawl along the sides and bottom to suck up anything. Also, pay attention to the basket size that will collect all the debris, especially if there are trees and plants surrounding the pool which regularly drop leaves and debris.


Pool cleaner prices can vary widely. In most cases, the more features and functions a unit has, the higher the price. When deciding on a budget to spend on a device, keep in mind the pool size and the amount of debris you regularly find.

The Polaris Vac-Sweep 280 Pressure Side Pool Cleaner is the most popular and works on all in-ground pools when using a booster pump. It has two nozzles that provide higher suction and faster cleaning in three hours or less. The Polaris 280 connects to a unique pressure line. It sweeps, scrubs, and vacuums all pool surfaces. The pressure washer has a single-chamber filter bag that captures large debris such as leaves, acorns, pebbles, and other small to large debris. The unique filter bag removes debris before reaching the pump basket or filter, extending the life of the pool’s filtration system.

Designed to gobble debris, the Polaris® Quattro™ Sport has 4WD agility to aggressively climb walls and graze the waterline. Even acorns, leaves, and pebbles do not stand a chance, thanks to its extra-large inlet. The Quattro Sport is perfect for all pool bottom surfaces thanks to its booster pump. With its two-stage filtration, this innovative pressure side cleaner collects fine and large debris in an easy-to-clean bin with a transparent window.

It features cyclonic vacuum technology, a lightweight design, and an easy-to-clean filter tank with a transparent lid.

  • It effortlessly climbs walls and reaches hard-to-reach corners for a thorough clean from top to bottom.
  • Its compact and lightweight design makes it easy to maneuver. Whether you need to get it out of the pool or carry it away for cleaning or storage, its light weight makes it a breeze to use.
