3 reasons to consider a robotic pool vacuum

It’s no secret that pool maintenance is complex and time-consuming. Caring for a pool is essential to ensuring overall water quality and therefore, safety.

Given the many maintenance parts in a pool, it’s no surprise that there are pieces of equipment designed to make the essential tasks easier. From chemical automation to filters that require fewer changes, there are many ways that pool directors can save money and cut down on manpower. One device that pool maintenance specialists will greatly appreciate is a robotic vacuum.

Know the benefits
Though there will be a high initial cost for a robotic vacuum, there are many benefits that pay off in the long run. Needless to say, the biggest beneficiaries of this product will be pool maintenance technicians. Gone will be the days of dragging a manual vacuum back and forth along the pool floor, which takes a lot of time and effort.

If you’re not entirely convinced, here are three more reasons.

1. Have more time for other responsibilities: Cutting back on time spent vacuuming the pool means giving maintenance specialists more time to tend to other essential tasks, such as checking the many pieces of maintenance equipment to ensure that they’re operating properly.

2. The better alternative: If you’re looking for ways to save on manpower, you may be considering cleaners that run on your pool pump. These include suction side cleaners and pressure side models. These differ from robotic models because they run off of components found within the pool. Suction side cleaners rely on the pool’s plumbing system, and pressure side models get their power from pool pumps and sometimes even needs a dedicated booster pump. Not only do these take up more room, it can also be detrimental to your pool’s overall operations.

3. Choose from a variety of models: The market for robotic vacuums is huge. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for these useful items. No matter what size your pool is or what kind of surfacing it has, there are many robotic vacuums that will suit your needs. The challenge won’t be finding the right model, it’ll be selecting the one that you like the most.

Reach out to your local pool company to discuss which robotic vacuum would be the best for your pool. Acquiring one early on will ensure that you can use it during peak season.
