The most popular and cost-effective automatic pool cleaners are suction cleaners. These units are pretty easy to use and can be attached to your existing pool skimmer. Operating only when your pool pump is running, a suction cleaner picks up dirt and debris and deposits them in your pool’s filter system.

Working on the other end of your pool’s filter system, a pressure cleaner attaches to a return outlet or booster pump. Any dirt and debris collected with this type of cleaner is routed to the debris bag attached directly to the cleaner.
