Robotic Pool Cleaner Reviews
John M. Davison an American citizen who was a resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania invented the first swimming Pool cleaner and submitted his Patent Application “Cleaning Apparatus for Swimming Pools and the like” on November 26th, 1912. He received Patent No: 1,056,779 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office on March 25th, 1913.
Since then many inventions to accomplish the same activity has been periodically invented by many and now the ultimate Swimming Pool Cleaner. The Robotic Pool Cleaner has arrived to make the life of pool owners and administrators that much more comfortable and convenient to keep their pools clean and healthy for users and also be within the stringent laws that are now legislated to keep everyone using the pools free from disease and sickness.
In the public interest, we have picked up eight (08) of the best Robotic Pool Cleaners available in the market and place before our readers a detailed review to help them to make their choice.
They all work with the minimum of human supervision utilizing state of the art technology and go about their cleaning business until the task is accomplished with not a speck of debris left on the floors and walls of the pool which makes these units “Robotic” in the real sense of the word.
What is a Robotic Pool Cleaner?
There are two types of Robotic Pool Cleaners, one of which is fully operated with battery power and the other which is part battery power and its movement assisted by jet propulsion.
The former accomplishes two primary objectives. They are suction of debris while cleaning the floor with brushes and also moving on its power cleaning the complete pool. It can climb walls and clean while holding firm in a vertical position giving a thorough clean up of the pool.
The latter too uses battery power to suck debris while cleaning with brushes and the pressure of the suction propels it forwards covering the entirety of the pool providing a clean surface, but this cannot climb the walls of the pool.
Both of these Robotic Pool Cleaners operates with a minimum of human assistance and once placed inside in the pool it would go about its business until the pool is cleaned and completed.
It is suggested that the pool filtering system is kept switched off while the Robotic Pool Cleaners are at work as any debris in the water would settle down to the floor allowing for a thorough clean up.
The Robotic Pool Cleaners use movement sensors, automatically operated motors and computer-assisted integrated circuits which we commonly refer to as “Chips” to move, clean and suck debris out which elevates them to the much spoken about “Robotic” tag which it would proudly carry.
Procuring skilled and unskilled “Man Hours” getting expensive by the day and finding suitable personnel to accomplish chores. Such as keeping swimming pools clean and healthy becoming dearer it is envisaged that investing on a Robotic Pool Cleaner would save money, time and even bring down anxiety and expectations of waiting for someone who would not turn up at the end of the day to clean up the pool.
Employing a Robotic Pool Cleaner is hassle free and would make the life of pool owners and administrators that much easier and stress-free at the end of the day.
Robots are extensively used in the manufacture of many products today, and with an initial investment many advantages could be derived, and very conspicuous about it would be the absence of any human resources management, which is a primary contention in most businesses in the modern world.
How do Robotic Pool Cleaners work?
Every Robotic Pool Cleaner has two motors working independently of each other. But do work in tandem and while one turns the brushes that clean the floor and walls of the pool and assist in sucking debris and pushing it out the other would work to create the movement which is required to give the unit the power to move.
Any Robotic Pool Cleaner would need to be connected to an electrical socket providing it the power it needs but to prevent any accidents or any other unfortunate and unforeseen incidents. The pool cleaner would drop the power via a transformer from 110~ volts to about 24~ volts, which makes it safer especially with water around it.
Moving on its own and cleaning on a set pattern makes the Robotic Pool Cleaner very organized when it is at work and with high energy brushing of the pool floors and walls, it provides a thorough clean which even human hands may not accomplish.
Sensors at the bottom of the Robotic Pool Cleaner would ensure that no debris is left behind when it moves forward which would be a task, impossible to accomplish with human hands ensuring that every speck of debris is sucked and dispatched out of the pool.
