Robotic Pool Cleaner

Tiger­Shark® Robotic Pool Cleaner

The idea of hav­ing a cute lit­tle robot doing your dirty work and clean­ing the pool sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? You’ve prob­a­bly heard about robotic pool clean­ers. Have you been think­ing of pur­chas­ing one for your swim­ming pool?

Let’s walk through the basics.

First, here’s how they work:

Robotic pool clean­ers have an elec­tric motor inside the cleaner that dri­ves it. A small trans­former sup­plies the power to the cleaner and con­verts elec­tric­ity to a low volt­age. The cleaner uses a pump inside the unit to per­form like a vac­uum. A com­puter chip frocks the shape of your pool so your lit­tle robot can clean it quickly and effi­ciently. Some mod­els come with remotes so you can lie back, have another iced tea and watch them work.

Robotic clean­ers can scrub the walls and the tile line and work best pick­ing up small debris, sand, or silt.

Now, I’m sure you want to know the cons as well as the pros, right?

The down side of robotic clean­ers is that (at $800–900) they are spendier than pres­sure or suc­tion clean­ers—and also—like any self-respecting robot—they have a lot of inter­nal mov­ing parts that may break down.

 Here’s the prod­uct descrip­tion for the Hay­ward Tiger­Shark®, a robotic cleaner we rec­om­mend to our cus­tomers at Pacific North­west Pools.

The Tiger­Shark® series of robotic pool clean­ers fea­ture a new and con­tem­po­rary design. Equipped with intel­li­gent microprocessor-based tech­nol­ogy, the Tiger­Shark fam­ily is rec­og­nized for its supe­rior per­for­mance in reli­a­bil­ity and effi­ciency. Tiger­Shark makes sure vir­tu­ally every area of your pool gets that much cleaner, and fast! The Tiger­Shark QC auto­matic robotic cleaner is no excep­tion with a fast 90-minute Quick Clean cycle.

Effi­cient clean­ing programs

  • All Tiger­Shark mod­els come with a stan­dard 3-hour com­plete clean­ing cycle for full floor, walls, coves and waterline.
  • Patented Quick Clean tech­nol­ogy (Tiger­Shark QC model) pro­vides a fast 90 minute cycle.

Pow­er­ful vac­uum strength

  • On-board pump for intense vac­uum power to suck up dirt and debris.
  • Built with an effi­cient 24-volt motor designed to use less energy and lower cost.

Unique car­tridge fil­ter system

  • Makes emp­ty­ing easy, just open the cleaner, remove the car­tridge and rinse with a hose. Easy to use
  • No extra hoses, hookups or pumps required.
  • Runs sep­a­rately from the pool’s fil­tra­tion sys­tem reduc­ing the fre­quency of fil­ter back­wash cycles.
  • H series heater
