8 Top Tips for Choosing the Best Cleaner for Your Pool

1. Recommendations from family or friends are rarely right

Simply because no two pools are exactly the same. What works in their pool may not work in yours.

2. Choose value over price

A cheaper cleaner from a hardware store may look like a bargain, but if it doesn’t clean your pool, gets stuck, continually breaks down or only lasts a season (or less) – is it value for money?

3. Look at the full cost of ownership

As well as the initial purchase price, consider the ongoing requirement for costly maintenance.

4. Nearly every pool is different

A cleaner that works well in a large concrete pool may get stuck in a geometric fibreglass pool. It takes an expert to know which cleaner will work best in each.

5. If it doesn’t work efficiently, it’s not worth having

There are great differences in the cleaning efficiency & reliability of different types of cleaners. Don’t spend money on maintenance or parts for the wrong one for your pool.

6. Choosing quality always pays

Because you only get what you pay for. Paying a little more always saves money in the long run. So choose the best quality pool cleaner you can afford – you’ll benefit from greater cleaning efficiency, reduced maintenance costs & longer working life.

7. What’s the warranty

Warranties are your guarantee that the manufacturer stands by the quality, reliability & durability of its pool cleaners.
