As such, many above ground pool owners have discovered the time saving benefits of automatic above ground pool cleaners. You can get more enjoyment out of your pool by spending less time cleaning it and more time in it, when you invest in an above ground pool cleaner. Manual pool cleaning methods are time consuming and laborious.

The technology behind above ground pool cleaners has advanced drastically over the last few years. They are more efficient and make pool cleaning a snap. For more sanitary swimming water, that is free of algae and contaminants, automatic above ground pool cleaners are a must have. Hayward and Zodiac manufacture some of the best pool cleaners for above ground pools available.

Types of Pool Cleaners

Choosing the right above ground pool cleaner can be an easy task when pool owners have the right information. Doing a little bit of research will help you to find an above ground pool cleaner that works great in your pool and fits your budget. The range of pool cleaners for above ground pools is actually quite impressive. Pool cleaners typically fall into one of three categories: suction-side cleaners, robotic cleaners, and pressure-side cleaners. Not surprisingly, each of these cleaners has some pros and cons which can help you choose the best pool cleaner for your above ground swimming pool.

  • Suction-side above ground pool cleaners:

  • These are the most common type of pool cleaner for above ground pools. Usually, they are relatively inexpensive and therefore represent an excellent value for your money. A suction-side above ground pool cleaner attaches to the suction side of your pool’s plumbing. Water is pulled out of the pool by your pool pump and suction is thereby created on the underside of the cleaner. The movement of most of these cleaners is random and automatic and as the unit travels around your pool, debris and sediment are sucked out of the pool and collected in either the filter pump basket or within the filter. The benefits of this type of above ground pool cleaner are that they are easy to install and operate, reliable, and inexpensive. Debris is pulled into your filter basket so you will need to clean it regularly. This is an easy task that takes a mere fraction of the time that manual pool cleaning normally requires. Also, skimming action may be compromised when your suction-side above ground pool cleaner is operational, depending on the specific model.
