Everyone loves a good swimming pool, but most people don't like the maintenance that comes with it. Sure, you could hire a professional cleaner, but do you really want to have that ongoing expense? The other option of course, it to spend your precious free time on the weekend cleaning the pool yourself. Luckily, there is now a third option: enter robotic pool cleaners. Much like the Roomba or other robotic vacuums for inside the house, a robotic pool cleaner will clean the bottom of your pool and can also clean the side walls and water line. You won't have to change your pool filter as often when you use a robotic pool cleaner. Additionally, you will neither have to repeatedly pay a professional to come out and clean your pool nor will you have to waste your time doing it yourself.
The Polaris F9550 Sport Robotic In-Ground Pool Cleaner is pretty top-of-the-line in the world of robotic pool vacuums. This robotic vacuum has 4WD to get everywhere in your pool (even stairs!) and a solid-blade brush to get your pool in top condition. It comes with a 70-foot cable and is appropriate for pools measuring up to 60 feet. It features four cleaning modes: floor, floor/wall, waterline only, and custom. The waterline only cleaning cycle is ideal for scrubbing the tile line of your pool.
Reviewers love the 7-day programmable timer so you can set its cleaning modes for the week and then forget about it. You can control the robot via the motion-sensing remote. When you want to remove it from the pool, all you need to do is touch a button. The Easy Lift System means that the Polaris F9550 Sport Robotic Pool Cleaner will resurface and wait for you to grab it. It automatically evacuates water so that it will be easy to lift. An indicator alerts you as to when you need to empty the filter canister.
Polaris boasts that their Sport Robotic Cleaner has 25% more vacuum power and 4 times the debris capacity compared to other robotic pool vacuums. It can clean pools in as little as 1.5 hours. The 4WD means that it can climb over obstacles and the larger vacuum enables it to suck up bigger debris than some other robotic vacuum cleaners. Emptying was easy, and the Polaris F9550 offered fantastic cleaning performance. True, it's expensive up front, but it's worth it to spend less time cleaning and more time doing the things you love, like enjoying your pristine swimming pool.
