The 2x Suction PoolCleaner™ uses your existing pump and filter for power. This cleanes plugs into either your designated suction port or the skimmer. The 2x is ideal for most average sized pools.
SELF ADJUSTING TURBINE VANES
All the POOLCLEANER™ cleaners have the patented self-adjusting turbines, which maximizes the power from the water flow. This turbine is similar to a paddle wheel with blades that are adjustable. This feature allows the POOLCLEANER™ to still move at low suction and low pressure. In addition the folding vanes of the turbine allow for the easy passage of larger debris through the cleaner.
The 2x and 4x Suction POOLCLEANER™ have an internal programmed steering system, that causes the left wheel to periodically reverse, allowing the POOLCLEANER™ to turn and then move into another direction. For the 2x Suction POOLCLEANER™ there are five different programmed turns ranging from 90 to 450 degrees. For the 4x Suction POOLCLEANER™ there are three different programmed turns ranging from 90 to 540 degrees. This feature allows the POOLCLEANER™ to cover not only the deep end, but also the shallow end.
This steering system allows for the 2x Suction POOLCLEANER™ to travel 8 to 10 ft. before it turns, and the 4x Suction POOLCLEANER™ will travel 11 to 14 ft. before it turns. The POOLCLEANER™ cleans more in the shallow end than any other cleaner. The POOLCLEANER™ has no problem with uneven surfaces or strange shapes. It won’t stick in a corner, or get hung up by a main drain.
ROBUST TIRE TREADS
One look and you will see that the patented tire treads give the POOLCLEANER™ better climbing ability and obstacle maneuverability. The tires come with tread wear markers that show you when to replace your tires. The front tires of the POOLCLEANER™ have humps (raised treads) that allow the POOLCLEANER™ to overcome any reasonable obstacles such as the main drain and uneven surfaces. This makes the POOLCLEANER™ ideal for all pool surfaces and shapes.
SELF CLEANING SWIVEL
This is a feature that allows the POOLCLEANER™ to turn freely without interference from the hose due to debris buildup in the swivel hose cone. By self-cleaning, the swivel prevents the hose from steering the POOLCLEANER™.
(Note: Sometimes with severe debris one needs to hold it under a water faucet for cleaning).
The POOLCLEANER™ has patented adjustable skirts that allow the cleaner to maintain optimal suction under the machine even when it encounters obstacles. When the POOLCLEANER™ encounters an obstacle one (or more) of the skirts will lift up (adjust) over the obstacle while maintaining suction under the cleaner.
AUTOMATIC BYPASS VALVE
The POOLCLEANER™ comes with a patented automatic bypass valve that regulates the suction to the POOLCLEANER™. This bypass valve regulates the suction so that the POOLCLEANER™ does not exceed the optimal 11-13 RPM (revolutions per minute). It does so by opening to bypass water when necessary. This will ensure the best possible performance from your POOLCLEANER™. Not using the Bypass Valve may cause excessive wear, and hence will void the warranty.
This Bypass Valve serves another important purpose. Should your POOLCLEANER™ get clogged by an object or large debris the valve will snap into a completely open position, preventing your pump from running dry. Once in this completely open position the system must be turned off, the cause of the problem identified and solved, and then the Bypass Valve must be manually reset.
