How to choose your electric robotic pool cleaner?

Posted on Thursday, 2 February 2023

An electric robotic cleaner works independently of the filtration system and can meet all your requirements.

To make the right choice, you need to take several factors into account: the size of the pool, its shape, and of course, its coating. A robotic cleaner designed for tiled pools will not work optimally on a pool with a liner, and vice-versa. However, the 4-wheel drive model is suitable for all pool types.

Keep in mind that if you have a diving pool or a safety ledge (a safety step surrounding the pool), it is best to purchase a 4WD model since they are agile enough to navigate these obstacles.


Unlike pressure robotic cleaners, electric robotic cleaners contain a rigid filter and are easy to clean. They have a large debris storage capacity (between 3 L and 5 L), which can be accessed from the top of the device. The filtration fineness ranges from 60µ for double filtration models to 200µ for the largest.


Polaris robotic cleaners – the best technology has to offer


Easy removal from water: the back of the robotic cleaner features a powerful jet to drain water, making it easier to remove.


Gyroscope and sensors: all models in the W Line 6 range feature this technology that allows them to climb over any obstacle and to adapt the cleaning to every pool shape.


Swivel: this limits cable tangling as the device spins.


Built-in connectivity: all models from the W Line iQ can be remote controlled through the iAquaLink application on a smartphone or a computer. Depending on the model, users can view cleaning progress, schedule the device over a 7-day period, choose between 2 and 6 cleaning programmes (depending on the model) and track water temperature.
