Pool cleaners are designed to adapt to both above-ground and inground pools. The type of pool cleaner you choose will depend on the type, texture and design of the pool's floor, as well as whether the bottom of your pool is even, bumpy or sloped. Pool cleaners are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as in manual or automatic models. Manual pool cleaners are much cheaper; although automatic pool cleaners last longer, require less work and are generally a better investment. Suction, pressure and electric cleaners are the most popular choices among pool owners. These cleaners range in price from $160 to $1700 - suction cleaners are the least expensive and electric cleaners are the most expensive.
