Best Pool Cleaner 2014

The best pool cleaner will vary depending on your pool.

Over the past month, I have talked about Polaris, Dolphin, Aquabot, Hayward, and Water Tech robotic pool cleaners. Originally, when I started the chain of posts about the best pool cleaners, I intended to rank the cleaners in some sort of order (best to worst). As I researched the subject, I realized that I had been quite naïve with my original intention to pick the single best pool cleaner. There is such a variety of robotic pool cleaners and the true best pool cleaner for each person will depend solely on the pool it will clean. As a swimming pool service technician with over fifteen years of experience, I am rarely asked about robotic pool cleaners. This has been somewhat of a learning experience for me and a great exercise to further my robotic pool cleaner knowledge. And now, without further delay, I present the best pool cleaner(s) of 2014!

Best Pool CleanerAs far as my picks go, I like the Aquabot Classic for one. The Aquabot Classic is a great all around robotic pool cleaner. It is suitable for any surface, cleans the walls and floor, and has a 50′ cable length. Click the link below to go straight to where you can find this cleaner for $714.21 at the time of this post.

The price is a bit steep, but be sure that it will outdo everything the Aquabot Classic will. It also comes with a remote for when you want to quickly spot clean the pool or impress your friends. Click the link below to see the cleaner listed on for $1650.00 as of this writing.

Best Pool CleanerMy third and final pick is the Hayward TigerShark. I must admit that I did not see this pick coming when I started this series of posts, but I believe it is the best pool cleaner for anyone on a tight budget. The TigerShark cleans the walls, steps, and floor of the pool. The base model is available on for $870.44 at this time and you may find it by clicking the link below.

I hope that you too have learned some valuable information about the best pool cleaners during the last month of posts. I certainly have. I also hope that you will consider one of these cleaners as we enter a very dirty time of the year for our pools. Until next time, keep those pools clean!
