The dream of almost everyone is to have a pool at home and it is that, without question, spending long summer months with the occasional refreshing bath in between definitely makes a difference.
What you may not know is that having a pool is literally a luxury, not only because of how beautiful your property can look with one of them, but because of the high costs it implies in terms of maintenance, because yes, to keep it clean at least one or two weekly cleanings are required. Which in turn translates into a lot of physical and economic effort because, if you do not intend to pay for the services of a company with qualified personnel to do so, you must do it yourself.
If you finally decide to do the cleaning work on your own, you should bear in mind that you need to buy a large amount of chemicals and tools that help you keep the water clean, such as a net to collect waste on the surface, a brush to clean the walls and stairs, a special vacuum cleaner for swimming pools and a pH meter that, if you don’t have it, it is very likely that all your effort will be in vain because you won’t know if the “apparently clean” water is safe for bathing and it’s your turn to discard it.
Just that last part is the most worrying. Do you know how much water you waste annually by not doing a correct preventive maintenance to your pool? Let’s see, we will provide you with a formula that is not universal because it varies according to the shape and depth of each pool but assuming the case that it is 3 m wide x 2 m long x 1.5 m deep, we are talking about 9,000 meters cubic meters than boots and 9,000 cubic meters more to be able to fill it again if this happens to you at least once a month, how much money do you lose per year? You were shocked right?
Pool cleaner robot.
Calm! Everything has a solution, and this is a very good one. Faced with the possibility of saving some time and money, no one can resist that is why we want to present you something that you surely do not know about. It is a robot specially designed to clean swimming pools in depth and with greater efficiency.
Yes, thanks to technological advances today there are various robot cleaners or “pool cleaners”, as they are also known. There are automatic or manual and depending on the model, they work with hydraulic or electric power.
The automatic robot is comfortable and ideal if you want it to do everything on its own because, just by turning it on, it will clean from the surface or floating area to the bottom and the walls of your pool. Thanks to the smart technology it has, these provide better results because even after having overlooked some dirt, at the end of its journey, the machine scans everything again and will clean what it has left behind.
That is not the best, besides eliminating any trace of dirt, it does it in just 2 hours. Something that surely a worker of any company or yourself would take a minimum of 5 hours.
For their part, manual robots do require your help to do all the work, since it is you who must take them to each part of the pool. However, do not be discouraged by this, this type of robot is still very effective and is also much less cumbersome than using a net to clean the surface and do all the work that we already mentioned at the beginning. Actually, the most important thing is that the results last much longer.
Finally, it will always be much more useful to have a robot to clean your pool, mainly because having one you can do daily maintenance if you want and this will prevent the water from being contaminated so quickly, which in turn allows you to save thousands of liters a year And well, along the same lines of saving, you can also yield much more chemicals that you need and discard when you throw away the water. All this translates into a great relief for your wallet, so go ahead and buy yours.
