Frequently Asked Questions
Can I leave my Zodiac pool cleaner in the pool?
You can leave the pool cleaner in the pool when you're cleaning the pool. Otherwise, when it's not actively cleaning the pool, you should remove the Zodiac pool cleaner. This is due to the corrosive effects certain chemicals in the pool can have on the cleaner.
How long does a Zodiac pool cleaner last?
Most Zodiac pool cleaners will last for 15 years. You may need to replace parts during that time.
How much does a Zodiac pool cleaner cost?
The cost of a Zodiac pool cleaner depends on the model you're buying and if you're purchasing any additional features. The range is $100-$450. The simpler models are cheaper while the more complex cleaners with additional features are more expensive.
How do Zodiac pool cleaners work?
The cleaner is first attached to a suction line. This pulls in water to the pump. It also enables the cleaner to move around the pool on its own. As it moves, the cleaner sucks up dirt and debris. That mess is sent to the pump filter basket and pool filter.
Why does my Zodiac pool cleaner keep stopping?
The most common reason that your pool cleaner may be stopping is due to a clog. If it becomes clogged, then it can no longer suck in water and propel itself forward.
Another reason your Zodiac pool cleaner keeps stopping is that the suction isn't strong enough. You may want to connect it to a more powerful pump.
How do I choose the best Zodiac pool cleaner?
One variable you should consider is the type of pool that you have. Some Zodiac pool cleaners work better on above-ground pools than in-ground pools.
Another aspect to consider is the size of the pool. You may need a Zodiac pool cleaner designed for large pools or deep depths.
Why should I buy Zodiac pool cleaners?
Zodiac pool cleaners are an ideal choice for pool owners that don't want to clean the pool. They run automatically and are effective at cleaning the bottom and walls of a pool.
They're also relatively easy to maintain and don't take much energy to use. Compared to Polaris pool cleaners, Zodiac models tend to clean pools slightly faster.
