This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Regular pool maintenance doesn't have to be an overwhelming chore if you invest in a pressure cleaner that can reduce the time spent brushing and vacuuming. These devices also distribute warm water throughout the entire pool, reducing cold spots. In addition, you'll get less debris lodged in your pool's filter, prolonging its life. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best pressure pool cleaner on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

April 10, 2019:

We evaluated choice for both in-ground and above-ground pools. The Polaris Vac-Sweep 280 takes the top spot for being a reliable workhorse that serves pool owners for season after season. Even though it requires the purchase of a separate pump it's still a better bargain than the newer models that don't need one because it requires so little maintenance and doesn't tax the pool's existing circulation system.
