Pool Cleaning Robots

Pool Cleaning Robots


Have you ever considered using a pool cleaning robot instead of manually vacuuming your swimming pool? The technology has really advanced in the last 5 years. Contemporary pool robots are effective in removing debris and algae from your pool's floor, walls, and waterline. That's right, these creep crawly robotic pool cleaners can climb your pool walls, up and down! If you're considering a robotic pool cleaner this year or if you have never tried a pool robot, this article is for you!

Manually vacuuming a swimming pool

Many of us have been manually vacuuming our swimming pools for years. Manual vacuuming is effective and provides a wonderful feeling of instant gratification. But, let's face it, manually vacuuming your pool takes time. If efficiency is an important part of your lifestyle, it just may be time to think seriously about purchasing a robotic swimming pool vacuum cleaner. 

You may be thinking, aren't pool robots expensive? Or, are pool robots really worth it? Let's first examine the cost and value of a pool robot. A pool robot is an expensive pool tool. But, can this expense be justified by the value it provides? Let's examine the cost. It is possible to find cheap pool robots manufactured overseas but they are poorly made, are not sold with warranties, and impossible to have repaired locally. I would not invest in one of these robots because the value simply is not there. 

We have partnered with Maytronics, the only manufacturer of certified Dolphin Premier robotic cleaners. Believe it or not, Maytronics and been developing robotic pool cleaners since 1983. Over the past 40 years they have become the uncontested leaders in robotic pool technology. At the Great Backyard, we proudly carry Dolphin's Liberty, Active, and Explorer vacuum lines. Let's take a closer look at these great time-saving swimming pool tools.

When you begin shopping for the perfect pool robot, the most important thing to consider is the size of your pool. If you are purchasing a robot for a large commercial swimming pool, like a gym or YMCA pool, please consider the Dolphin Wave series. However, if you are shopping for a recreational pool robot, you will need to know the size of your pool in gallons. Dolphin builds a robotic vacuum for pools of all sizes, in-ground and above ground. 

You will also need to consider you preferred shopping and purchase method. Some Dolphin robots are sold exclusively online while others are sold in old fashion brick and mortar stores. Let's dive into some of the details on our best selling pool robots.
