Back in the dark ages of the 20th century, a pool cleaner referred as much to a service technician as to the tools they used. Archaic implements of torture, like the 24-inch brush on a telescoping aluminum pole or the basket skimmer, turned the remarkably expensive portal of recreation and fun into one more thing requiring work. Often in those grim days before the turn of the century, one would have to spend an hour cleaning the pool for a 15-minute swim. Such demands would often find the highly desirable swimming hole cast into disuse, ultimately spawning the pool cleaner to overcome such profligacy.
As with so much, the pool-bot has taken an escalating primacy, though the pool-guy still has the bio-advantage of adding chemicals and scooping out the big chunks. Regardless of your pool maintenance professional’s mad cleaning skills, 3 days after an immaculate cleaning, the filth returns. It’s a fact of nature. Usually the pool guy comes but once a week which makes that down-time the pool-bot’s time to shine. Little cleaning cars like the Ecojet Plus or scrubby tanks like the Maytronics Dolphin Triton plug into an outlet and do their magic, gathering filth in their on-board filtration systems.
Old-style cleaners attach to the pool filter via large flexible suction hose, dumping their dirt bounty right into the existing filtration system. The Maytronics Dolphin Hybrid DX2 functions with the flex hose/pool filter set-up. This means of operation will filter and collect more than the plug-and-play bots but, owing to the cycling of water, will use considerably more power to accomplish this. The DX2 converts the power of the water flow into electricity which runs the cleaner and its scanning system, increasing its energy efficiency. The DX2 is a rare suction cleaner that comes with a brush for scrubbing the bottom free of algae and bacteria. The hose poses difficulties of its own, primarily storage of it when not in use or having to dodge it while swimming.
