What Is a Robotic Pool Cleaner?

Robotic pool cleaners are next-generation pool vacuums that can completely automate the task of cleaning any pool. Unlike earlier pool cleaners that rely on the pool pump’s suction to clean the pool, a robotic pool cleaner uses electricity to power a motor inside to generate suction. 

Robotic pool cleaners work independently of the pool’s plumbing, and they keep all debris from cleaning inside a filter in the machine. Many automatic pool cleaners can clean an entire pool without any intervention depending on the model and its capabilities.

Some even offer four-wheel drive, which allows the robot to efficiently clean along curves and up walls.
