Above ground pool cleaners come in robotic, suction, and pressure just like in-ground units. The above-ground cleaners are smaller and require a lesser gallon per minute flow rate. Robotic units utilize a separate motor for operation and an independent internal filtration system to collect debris. Suction cleaners utilize the main circulation pump and filtration system to provide suction and filtration capability. Pressure cleaners use the main circulation system’s return pressure to provide it with forward movement. A bag located behind the unit skims debris off the bottom and blows debris on the surface towards the skimmer for collection. Above-ground pools can also be manually vacuumed as well. This style of cleaner will provide 100% pool cleaning.
