Vacuum cleaners

Vacuum cleaners are one of the most economic options that exist in the market right now. They connect directly to the filtration system of the pool, in the skimmer or in the vacuum point. Even though this type of cleaners may require a higher effort and more time, they work perfectly and clean the pool.  This cleaners are not able to clear the walls of the pools, they are specific for the floor.

Thanks to the suctioning of the filtration, the cleaner suctions the dirt of the pool and this gets trapped in the prefilter of the pump or in the tank of the filter. Furthermore, vacuum cleaners come with a telescopic handle that helps to reach all the corners of the pool.

However, if the power is too much, the cleaner won’t be able to clean the walls and won’t clean correctly.
