POOL CLEANERS

Keeping It Clean In 2018 Innovative manual and in particular robotic cleaners have ensured that the monotonous but essential task of cleaning the surfaces within a wide variety of swimming pools is thankfully no longer the chore it once was. And as each year passes, the introduction of new and updated models ensure it’s a job that is becoming even easier to perform. With a new year ahead, we look at 10 models to keep pools clean in 2018 By Andrea Hartshorne POOL BLASTER MAX FROM GOLDEN COAST Where lower budget cleaners are necessary, Golden Coast has a wide range of options available through Watertech,

including its Pool Blaster range of cleaners. With its high-flow pump and industryleading suction, the cordless Pool Blaster Max gives owners the extra power they need for reliable deep cleaning. It’s been designed to tackle the largest messes with ease and is equipped with a high-capacity filter bag that holds more dirt and debris than others in its class… and it’s easy to empty, too. The Pool Blaster Max with 240V adapter is equipped with Smart Charger technology and takes just four hours to recharge. Golden Coast 01271 378100 www.goldenc.com

THE ‘BIG YELLOW ONE’ FROM FAIRLOCKS Fairlocks, have been selling one of the most reliable and functional swimming pool vacuum heads for decades. ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ is their philosophy with this particular product, and the demand for it, which they affectionately call the ‘Big Yellow One’ has been high for many years. The streamlined shape facilitates fast and effective cleaning whilst the centrally mounted 19” brush enables the vac-head to collect even the solid debris that would normally be left behind by less capable systems. The clever design and centralised weight over the brushes makes it perfectly practical for use in any pool finish from concrete tiled to liner. For ease of installation there is the option of 1½ or 2’ hose fittings. Fairlocks Pool Products 01865 988346 www.fairlocks.co.uk

HAYWARD TIGERSHARK QC FROM BOSTA UK In 2017, Bosta UK extended its pool cleaner range to include the Tigershark QC model. As with the standard Tigershark model, the efficient cleaning pattern that is followed covers the entire pool – including the floor and walls, all the way to the tile line and with a 17 metre cable, it’s suitable for almost all domestic pools. Where the QC model differs from the standard Tigershark is it offers a faster clean cycle which ensures a pool is cleaned in just 1 hour 30 minutes. Both models are easy to use with no installation and no attachments required and there’s also a choice of foam rollers or PVC brushes depending on the finish of the pool.
