Automatic Pool Cleaning Systems

Let the system do the dirty work

Pool cleaners help clean and circulate your pool water. Many can be scheduled to start and stop at a set time using an automatic control system. Anthony & Sylvan can help you select the pool cleaning system that will work best for your pool.

Types of Pool Cleaners

Robotic Cleaners

Robotic cleaners provide superior and faster cleaning, and are independent of your pool’s pump, filtration and plumbing system. Powered by low-voltage electricity, robotic cleaners filter the water and collect dirt and debris internally. Many styles also brush and scrub your pool.

Pressure-Side Cleaners

Pressure-side cleaners work in conjunction with the pool’s pump or use a dedicated booster pump that provides more power. They are helpful in distributing clean, filtered water around the pool and have their own debris bag so as not to compromise the filter system. All pressure-side cleaners have hoses and fittings that connect to a dedicated return line, which allows fresh water to be brought into the pool.

Suction-Side Cleaners

Suction-side cleaners work in conjunction with your pool’s pump and filter. The cleaner’s hose typically attaches inside the skimmer or an intake fitting on the pool wall. Dirt and debris are collected in the pump and skimmer baskets, as well as the filter.

In-Floor Cleaners

These unique systems use the pressure of clean water to provide circulation. Built on a system of return lines, banks of cleaning heads in the pool floor pop up, spray a jet of water, retract, turn and pop up again to systematically blow dirt into the pool’s filtration system. Since the system circulates clean, filtered, heated water, chemical distribution is more efficient, reducing costs. Cold spots are also virtually eliminated. In-floor cleaners are available as a complete cleaning system or as a step-and-bench system that supplements an automatic pool cleaner.
