If your pool filter just can’t keep the surface clean, then you have to clean those leaves and dead bugs off manually. There must be a better way, right? Well, last year we presented the remote control skimmer. Fun idea, but there is no auto pilot. To take it to the next level, enter the first solar-powered robotic pool skimmer. This bad boy navigates the pool and removes everything on the surface using only the power from the sun.

“Two solar panels on top of the skimmer collect solar energy and store it in the rechargeable NiMH batteries. Dual, turbine-like paddlewheels propel the device as it continuously courses across the water and send debris to the skimmers filter. Four wheels on the side panels allow the skimmer to turn when it encounters a pool wall and navigate along the perimeter where dirt often collects. An internal microprocessor monitors the skimmers power and prods it to seek sunny areas of the pool to recharge the batteries. When the unit enters the s unlight, the microprocessor slows the rear paddlewheel, allowing the solar panels to collect optimal energy and, once the batteries are fully charged, the skimmer resumes the cleaning process. During the evening or cloudy conditions, the unit automatically reduces its speed to conserve energy while continuing to clean the pool. If the skimmer becomes clogged, it will automatically reverse the rotation of its paddlewheels to dislodge the stubborn detritus. The skimmer holds two 3″ chlorine tablets that slowly dissolve as the skimmer moves across the pool. The filter removes and can be cleaned with a garden hose. Operates for 8 hours on a full charge.”

  1. Wow! That’s way cool. Is there any danger of the processor inside being fried with water, though? As in, should it be taken out of the pool when people are in it to avoid it being submerged or something?

    Is there any type of automatic floating skimmer that sells for less?

    What does it do when it encounters a ladder and can’t get under it?

  4. wonderful publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t realize this. You must proceed your writing. I’m confident, you have a great readers’ base already!|
