Choosing a Pool Cleaner

Pressure-side cleaner w/o booster pump

What do I need to make this work?

  • A dedicated pressure line (see illustration)

  • Main Pool Circulating pump HP or larger

  • No Booster Pump

  • Pressure Side Cleaner that does not require a booster pump

What is a Dedicated Pressure Line?

This is a single line that runs from the pool return line to a single 1.5 inch threaded return fitting on the pool wall. The line is not connected to a pump or more than one return fitting. Where the dedicated pressure line connects to the pool return line there should be a 3-way diverter valve for adjusting water flow to the cleaner. Many dedicated pressure lines also have a small in-line filter, usually the Jandy Energy Filter.

What are the advantages of this type of Pool Cleaner?

1. The pressure side pool cleaner does not vacuum debris  into your pump or filter but into a bag that can be emptied.

2. The other major advantage is that this type cleaner does not require a booster pump, so you save electricity by only operating one pump, the main circulating pump.

3. Reaches more areas and cleans better than the suction type cleaners.

NOTE:  A dedicated line is a pipe that runs from the equipment area to the pool to deliver pressure or suction to the cleaner.  A dedicated line on the pressure side is one that operates under pressure.  It delivers water pressure to the cleaner to operate it.  A dedicated line on the suction side is one that operates under suction.  It delivers suction to the cleaner to operate it.
