Top 6 Robot Pool Cleaners for Inground Pools

For those who have above-ground pools, a robotic pool cleaner is the best option. This cleaner is simple to use and provides a high-quality cleaning service without requiring much effort on your part, while some also save energy by avoiding using the pool pump for cleaning and power. Simply place the unit inside your pool, plug it in and let it do its job.

Robotic Pool Cleaner Defined

A Robotic Pool Cleaner can be used year-round without disrupting any schedules! This type operates very similarly to suction models but does away with messy hoses altogether because it moves freely around its given area using robot wheels which allow greater mobility than standard soles would permit. These robotic cleaners use advanced technology to sense the walls and floor of your pool as well as obstacles such as ladders, cove edges. The cost can be a bit higher for this type of cleaner but the ease and convenience make them worth it in the end.

What are the different Types Of Robotic Pool Cleaners?

Suction Pool Cleaner

The purpose of this cleaner is to clean the pool by vacuuming the water out with suction. The suction is provided by the pool pump.

Pressure Pool Cleaner

A pressure cleaner is connected to the pool’s return port. The cleaner creates a lot of movement at the bottom of the pool, which agitates dirt and causes it to float on the surface of the water. This debris is removed by the pool skimmer.

True Robotic Pool Cleaner

This robot vacuum is completely self-contained, with a motor to drive the bot about and another motor to clean debris off the bottom of your above-ground pool. This robotic pool cleaner costs more than pressure and suction cleaners, but it uses less electricity. They are more expensive to run since components and replacements are more costly.

Reviews:

I did a lot of research and the Dolphin CC Plus was well reviewed. The Dolphin replaced an old robotic cleaner made by different manufacturer. The Dolphin is awesome, and does perform like it is supposed to. It even cleans the seams in the pool liner much better than the other robotic cleaner. While the manual (yes, I read it) states it doesn’t do the water line, it will run horizontally at or above the water line.
The double filter system works extremely well, and is easy to clean.

Reviews:

I’ve owned the cleaner for about 2 weeks. So far, I love it. The deepest part of my pool is 8ft; the Paxcess does a good job of climbing out of the deep and back up to the 3ft area to continue sucking up debris. It runs for a good hour or so, and charge time is around 4 hours. The filter tray has a screen that is able to trap fine particles so you’re able to dispose of them in your trash or down the drain. It’s very easy to clean in your sink or under a hose.

I am very happy with my DOLPHIN Proteus DX3 Automatic Robotic Pool Cleaner. You just put in the pool push the start button and walk away. I don’t put mine on auto clean, I prefer to do only when needed. My pool stays relatively clean since it is in full sun with no trees close. Only takes and hour or two and cleaning is done. Gives me time to do other things. I would recommend the DOLPHIN Proteus DX3 Automatic Robotic Pool Cleaner if you are looking for an easy way to keep your pool clean. It’s not too heavy and with the swivel cord it’s easy to take in and out of the pool

Reviews:

Never have I ever posted an amazon review but felt like I needed to post one for this robot pool vacuum. We have an intex 32x16x52 pool and this vacuum did such an amazing job! Picked up all the dirt I couldn’t pick up with my vacuum connected to the pool filter. Battery died after 90 mins like stated, but will charge it again once dried and clean so I can put it back in for a second time. Overall I’m happy with this product. We will see how it keeps working in the future.

Reviews:

I had an older model of Maytronics Dolphin robotic pool cleaner with a filter bag. That bag was really hard to clean. This new model came with major improvement: removable filter basket. Cleaning this robot is no longer a huge task taking more time than cleaning the pool itself. Washing filters is now a breeze. And this might be the single best feature of this robotic pool cleaner.
