PRODUCT SAFETY RECALL: ASTRALPOOL GAS HEATERS.
Having a swimming pool in your home doubles your energy consumption. Fortunately, you can lower your energy costs with the help of robotic pool cleaners. Before we get into the reasons why you should upgrade to a robotic pool cleaner, let’s talk about how do robotic cleaners work:
The following points highlight the reasons why you should consider a robotic pool cleaner for yourself. Rest assured that once you go robotic, you’ll never go back!
The average wattage of these automatic pool cleaners is 180W. Your regular booster pump powered by hydraulic cleaners need more than 1,000W or 1kWH to run. That’s a massive 82% less power consumption! You’ll achieve high energy savings since they use low-voltage to run, allowing the filter system to operate at its lowest flow possible for the longest time. It’s particularly helpful if your pool runs on a dual or variable speed pump.
Just plug in the power supply, place the bot in the pool and press a button.
These robots will not rely on your pool’s pump, booster pump, or filter to produce power. You plug them directly into one of the standard electric outlets you have. Also, they come with their own filtration for catching debris, as well as a built-in canister.
You don’t need to backwash the filtration system of your swimming pool as much, so you will use fewer chemicals.
The robots can map out the surface of your pool. Most models feature a smart system for scanning. Hence, they have the skill to navigate your pool area and provide 90-95% coverage. They tend not to get stuck and lost in corners, thanks to their reverse and forward motors.
A robotic pool cleaner usually comes with a setting for programming your preferred cleaning schedules. There are even those very smart robots that have the ability to calculate your pool size and automatically program themselves to minimize the running time and for the most effective cleaning patterns.

Time is an invaluable resource in today’s hurried world. So having a robotic pool cleaner that does everything for you, quickly and efficiently, is very advantageous. However, you still need to schedule professional swimming pool maintenance services for thorough inspection and repair/replacement of the different components, to keep your pool fully functional.
