3 Reasons Your Pool Still Has Debris After Running Your Robotic Cleaner

These are the three most common reasons you might still have debris in your pool, plus some solutions for remedying the issues.

  1. The filter canisters in our robotic cleaners can only hold so much debris.If your pool has more debris than usual or if it’s the first time introducing the robot to your pool, there may be too much debris for a single cleaning cycle. If this is the case, consider running your pool robot more than once a day or manually cleaning your pool until the debris is manageable for your robotic cleaner.
  2. The canister is filling up too quickly.If the debris canister is filling up quickly, you may need to empty the canister more often. There should be no visible debris in the canister when you return it to the pool robot.
  3. There’s a debris build-up.Your filter canister needs to be brushed gently with a soft brush and mild soap on occasion to prevent fine debris build-up.

Try these simple tricks to get your pool totally clean.
