Suction Cleaners

 These rely on suction to make them move and vacuum the debris off of the pool floor. There are several advantages to this. First, is that they act like a moving main drain. When the cleaner is underwater, vacuuming stuff into it, it is also sucking water through your filtration system, this lets you turn more water over in a shorter amount of time.


Some suction side cleaners have the ability to "scrub" your pool walls. This can possibly cut down on the number of times you need to brush your pool. And since it sucks debris right into your filter, it can remove much finer particles than a pool cleaner with a bag.. With no need to install any additional plumbing or pumps, a suction-side pool cleaner is usually a lot less expensive to install. If you are in an area where large debris rarely gets into your pool, then a suction-side cleaner may be your best bet.


Cons of a suction-side cleaner - First, as I have already pointed out, they suck debris straight to your filter and pump basket. This can be a real nightmare if you live where there is a lot of foliage. The only thing you can do about this is purchase a leaf trap that catches the big stuff before it ever even gets to your pump basket. Another thing that can greatly affect your suction-side pool cleaner is your filter. Without a clean filter, your pool cleaner can suffer dramatically, since the cleaner relies on the suction from your main pump to drive it around the pool and vacuum debris up.


To sum suction cleaners up, If you have a pool with dirt and debris that can fit through a 1 inch hole this cleaner is a good choice. That being said an abundance of debris can jam your system pump basket, filter, or even clog the pipe causing expensive repair bills that will offset the smaller price of the cleaner.
