Keeping It Clean In 2017 The task of keeping swimming pools of all shapes and sizes clean is one that thankfully has become significantly easier over the years. Numerous product advances have all played a part in this, but a lot of it is down to increasingly clever and efficient pool cleaner designs. Innovative manual and in particular robotic models have greatly reduced what was once a laborious but always essential task and in this issue, we look at 10 of the best pool cleaners available this year By Jon Wadeson THE ‘BIG YELLOW ONE’ FROM FAIRLOCKS One of the most efficient manual pool cleaning systems, the Fairlocks Big Yellow One, over the past 30 years has been the best-selling

AstralPool’s Pulit Advance + cleaners are robust, reliable and efficient. These top of the range cleaners feature GYRO technology, 3D filters and LED indicators and with the classic 2 motors or a cylinder block with app, the range and their features make them the experts’ choice. GYRO is a new smart navigation system which will ensure your pool is thoroughly cleaned every time. It avoids all types of obstacles and has a tangle-free power cable. The three dimensional filters come with a new ultrafine 3D filter as a standard feature and being easy to open, the filters are simple to reach from the top of the cleaner ensuring clean hands as there’s no need to come into contact with the dirt to clean the filter.
