Most people think it’s pretty cool to live in a home with a swimming pool. But until you’ve lived in one you probably won’t realise that there’s a lot of pool cleaning that goes on if you have a home with a pool. So, here’s a quick guide to picking the best pool cleaner for your home.
Renting a home with a pool
If you’re renting a house with a pool, make sure your landlord provides pool cleaning services or an automatic pool cleaner. A human pool cleaner who comes in once a month will do the job! Otherwise, if the cleaning of the swimming pool becomes your responsibility, it can be quite a chore!
If your lease doesn’t come with manual pool cleaning, make sure the pool has an automatic pool cleaner or a pool skimmer that is easy to operate.
Check that the pool vacuum is for the right kind of pool as there are in ground and above ground pools.
Owning a home with a pool
If you’re buying a house with an in-ground pool, it’s worth investing in a good quality automatic pool cleaner. Do your research and make sure to choose one that will clean your pool well without breaking down. There are heaps of different brands to choose from and pool cleaners come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Here’s another list of pool cleaners to choose from.
Some pool cleaners can get jammed easily, especially if your home is surrounded by trees that drop their leaves.
Depending on what kind of pool you have, there are plenty of good quality cleaners on the market.
Pool cleaners come in a range of prices, from under $100 to thousands of dollars. You don’t need to spend thousands to find one that will do a good job, especially if you do your research. The things to consider are brand, size of motor, accessories and availability of parts.
