Are robotic cleaners more efficient than suction pool cleaners?

Yes! Using a robotic pool cleaner can lower your pool running costs. 

A Filtrite robotic pool cleaner is significantly more efficient in cleaning your pool than a suction cleaner because a suction cleaner requires the pump to be running in order for it to operate.

For example, a Filtrite robot uses around 0.18kW of power to drive it around your pool, yet a suction cleaner requires a pump running on average at around 1 to 1.5kw to drive it; that’s around 80% less power.  

That means over the course of a year, a Filtrite or Dolphin robotic cleaner running an average of 3 hours per day, could save you over 1,000 kW of power compared to the equivalent cleaning time of a suction cleaner.
