Introduction to the Pool Blaster
Nothing relieves your hot sunny day the way a cold swimming pool does. Whether you are planning on taking a dip, chilling in the water or just sitting by the poolside, swimming pools offer the best experience for all your summer relaxation needs. Unfortunately, to enjoy the best services from your pool, you have to take care of it, and this involves a lot of cleaning. In cleaning swimming pools, you can invest in expensive robot cleaners or other high-end equipment that cost a lot but offer excellent performance with minimal intervention from the pool owners. Sadly, this equipment cost a lot, and this limits a lot of pool owners from affording and keeping them running. If you are one of such individuals, then you need not worry because there are new devices that can deliver performance just as excellent yet they are much more affordable. On the downside, this equipment will need a lot of your input to function. The cleaners we are talking about are pool blasters.
Pool blasters come in different designs each of them offering unique features. To get the perfect baster for your pool, you must, therefore, ask yourself what exactly you want from it. What sort of features do you consider a must-have? This should help you land on the right blaster that will deliver the best possible results. Take note that the more sophisticated the features are, the higher the price tag.
Personally, I believe that there are two main things that you must look out for when purchasing a pool blaster:
First, is the device should have a multi-layer filtration system. This allows for optimal cleaning of dirt particles of different sizes with ease. As a result, your pool will be left cleaner, and you won’t even have to put in too much effort to achieve it.
The blaster should also have a rechargeable battery. Rechargeable batteries save you a lot of cash since you only have to recharge and to reuse them instead of replacing them. It’s also at this point that you will have to consider the battery life. The blaster should be able to last for as long as possible while remaining powerful enough to leave your pool sparkling clean. This is convenient and also saves you a lot of time when cleaning.
With that in mind, here are the top three pool blasters in the market right now.
Water Tech Pool Blaster Catfish Li Pool & Spa Cleaner
This versatile equipment can be used on spas and pools of different sizes including above ground swimming pools. The blaster comes with a rechargeable charger featuring a smart sensor technology. With the smart sensor, the charger uses different color codes to let you know when the battery is full and when it is almost empty. The charger also relatively fast helping to get your batteries full and ready to use in less than four hours.
You will also appreciate the independence of the filter system used here. This device doesn’t require it to be attached to any other filtration systems. This helps it perform a lot better while also giving you the freedom to reach different corners of your pool or spa with ease.
Another thing you will love about the water tech pool blaster is its lightweight nature and the extreme filter bag that make using the cleaner a hassle-free experience. This makes holding and using it is a lot easier and can be done by almost everyone. The extreme filter bag, on the other hand, makes picking debris and dust simple and effective. You can also reuse this bag.

To make sure that you are getting the best results, the cleaner is attached to a clip on brushes and wheels. This doesn’t just lead to a cleaner pool surface and walls but also makes the entire cleaning process a lot easier.
The cleaning process has also received a significant boost from the quick release telescopic pole connector. This inbuilt connector makes it easy for you to release the dust and dirt from your pool much easier.
