If you want something that cleans your pool continuously, consider a suction pool cleaner. This type of cleaner moves throughout your pool, suctioning debris and algae from its floor and sides. It will have wheels or tracks to help it move along pool surfaces. Before you buy, consider the programmability of any suction pool cleaner you’re considering. Some offer more control over the cleaning cycle than others. Maneuverability is also important for the cleaner to be able to reach all parts of your pool efficiently. These machines should be able to climb the sides of your pool walls as well as roll along the bottom of the pool.
