The Number One Reason
Robots make life easier. Skimming the surface of the pool is a big part of any pool owner’s routine, and can be very time-consuming. This is why we created a robot for pool cleaning. We want to help pool owners save time and money, and enjoy their pools more. When you let the Solar-Breeze NX do the pool skimming, your pool will be cleaner. This solar-powered robot removes debris like leaves, bugs, pollen and even suntan oils floating on the surface. And, it catches surface debris before it starts to decay and sink to the bottom. Dirt and debris can introduce bacteria into the pool and promote algae growth, while lotions and soaps can change the chemistry of the pool water.
We designed our pool cleaning robot to work long hours. Floating debris usually remains on the surface of the water for 3 to 4 hours before it sinks and decays. Even if a pool owner is grabbing a net and skimming twice a day, a good deal of debris will sink. This necessitates longer running time for the pool pump, and use of a vacuum or other underwater cleaning equipment to remove decomposing matter from the bottom of the pool. The Solar-Breeze NX is powered by the sun all day and features a rechargeable battery that keeps it running long after dark. It skims the pool almost around the clock!
Prevents Algae Growth
Another reason why we created a robot for pool cleaning is to prevent algae growth. Algae feeds on organic matter such as leaves, seeds, spores and bacteria that fall into the pool. With food and sun, algae can easily take hold of your pool. Dealing with algae in your pool is not fun. Pool owners can spend a lot of time, energy and money trying to deal with the fallout from a normal backyard environment. When “messy” trees, pets and dusty environments are part of the equation, the problem grows exponentially. But, with a pool cleaning robot constantly collecting 90 – 95% of debris from the surface of the pool, algae growth can be prevented.
Robots are smart, too. The Solar-Breeze NX has programmed steering that makes sure it backs up and turns when it encounters obstacles (like the sides of the pool) and travels randomly around the entire surface of most pools in under 2 hours. This means debris doesn’t have a chance to sink before getting scooped up by the robot’s collection system. Because it operates completely on its own solar power, there are no cords or external power supplies to deal with and the robot is free to go anywhere and everywhere on the pool’s surface.
Saving energy is another important reason why we created a robot for pool cleaning. Because the Solar-Breeze NX is powered only by the sun, running the robotic skimmer won’t add to your energy bill. In sunbelt homes, the pool pump is the second largest consumer of electricity after air conditioning the home. Keeping the pool cleaner with a solar-powered surface cleaner can cut pool pump running time by up to two-thirds, resulting in significant savings and a reduced carbon footprint for pool owners.
Let a robot handle your pool cleaning chores this year, while you relax. The Solar-Breeze NX costs nothing to run and will keep your pool cleaner all year round.
