Most frequent questions and answers
Pool cleaners are notorious for getting repeatedly stuck in a corner, by the light or by the steps. You pull it away but soon afterwards it is back again stuck in the same place. This is extremely wasteful. Your pump is running but your cleaner is wasting its time and your money. No matter what you try the solution is short lived, frustrating! This problem is caused by the fact that pool cleaners are prone to repeat one pattern in the pool, visiting the same places over and over. This is due to the hose effect. Pool cleaners are guided by the hose, they push against it and as it flexes it directs the cleaner quite naturally in a direction which is not random but predetermined by the hose characteristics. The solution to this problem is actually very simple. You change the hose characteristics by fitting a “Random-MaXTM” to your pool cleaner. Instead of the hose being straight in line with the cleaner “Random-MaXTM” sets the hose at a special angle and then automatically varies the direction of that angle, which in turn varies the direction of the pool cleaner. Eureka! How?Random-MaXTM” has an active drive which causes the angle of the hose to slowly rotate in one direction only, guaranteeing that every possible angle is produced, at random. The rotation is driven by the movement of the pool cleaner itself as it travels around the pool. Thus, the cleaning route is constantly changing, totally at random too. Your pool cleaner will stop repeating just one route and will clean randomly all over the pool. Goodbye to frequently getting stuck. More effective, faster cleaning will enable savings in electricity, maintenance and chemicals. After converting your “Old School” pool cleaner to a steered machine by fitting a “Random-MaXTM” you will achieve results similar to those of the much more expensive steered cleaners. With no turbines or gears to wear out “Random-MaXTM” is very durable and maintenance free.

This problem is caused by the fact that “Old School” pool cleaners are prone to repeat one pattern in the pool, visiting the same places over and over, whist completely neglecting other areas. This is due to the hose effect. Pool cleaners are guided by the hose, they push against it and as it flexes it directs the cleaner quite naturally in a direction which is not random but predetermined by the hose characteristics. This can be quite severe, even leading to staining the pool and you have to spend time brushing the dirty areas to prevent this. The solution to this problem is actually very simple.

Suction swimming pool cleaners fit into three main categories in order of cost and effectiveness. There may be a few machines sharing some characteristics. Below we detail the pros and cons of each category. Conclusion, the best and most cost-effective is category 3. with a “Random-MaXTM” aftermarket steering accessory fitted.
  1. Robot cleaners – These are by far the most expensive machines. After mapping your pool, they program themselves to vacuum the dirt by traveling over the remembered pool areas. Electrically driven on either wheels or tracks, they are quiet, self-contained rather large vacuum cleaners which need to be manually lifted out and emptied. The electronics and moving parts need to be professionally maintained but they are not all exposed to the dirty water. The filters need to be in good condition.
  1. Steered suction cleaners – There are a variety of these machine which fit into a mid-cost range. These machines have a turbine motor and gears which usually drive either wheels or tracks and an intermittent direction changing steering gear. They are quiet and the turbine is driven by the water flow taking the dirty water to the suction pump and filter. If maintained in good condition they perform well. The suction hose is vertical to the machine and connected centrally above it, it has little direct influence on the machine. Sometimes incorrectly referred to as robots these machines rely on the built-in steering gear to occasionally change course. Due to the highly abrasive dirt in the water passing through the many moving parts these machines require regular maintenance to perform optimally. This can become quite costly over time and often done by professional pool shops.
  1. Unsteered suction cleaners – These were the first generation of automatic pool cleaners; they are simple in design and consequently the least cost to purchase and maintain. Hence, these “Old School” machines have endured. Very early machines were rather noisy newer one not so. Nonetheless they are very effective and reliable machines. They are easily maintained by the owner. Driven by water flow through either a hammer or diaphragm action they sit directly on the pool and chug along a route determined mainly by the characteristics of the suction hose to which they are umbilical connected. Water and wind conditions also influence their behavior as does pool design. It is advisable to adjust hose length and weights for optimum performance. These machines are very beneficial but being unsteered their major drawback is their inability to clean more than about 70% of the pool and they are prone to getting stuck. However, it is now possible to buy easily fitted aftermarket steering accessories to convert these machines to steered machines. The most recent and again cost effective of these is the South African made “Random-MaXTM”. After converting an “Old School” pool cleaner to a steered machine the results are similar to those of the much more expensive steered cleaners in category 2. The inexpensive and durable “Random-MaXTM” has no turbines or gears to wear out and actually pays for itself through savings in electricity, maintenance and chemicals. This combination is the overall best buy.
Random-MaXTM is available from all good swimming pool shops. Otherwise contact us if you if you need help locating one.
About our Random-MaxTM

Steers your pool cleaner all over your pool

Constantly changing random cleaning routes for best clean ever! Dual action pool cleaner steering system with unique Active DriveTM.

Features

This is an example of a badly designed pool.

In this pool the weir is at one end, requiring a rather long hose, preferably it should be central along one side. The steps are central on the sides, leading to the cleaner getting hung up. This was before Random-MaXTM stepped in to assist.

Random-MaXTM testimonials

I have a new pool and soon after we began using it and whilst still an open site we experienced a very heavy rain storm. Mud rushed into my pool completely covering the bottom of the pool. Luckily, I had fitted a Random-MaXTM to my pool cleaner and within 24 hours my whole pool was restored like new, with no permanent damage. I couldn’t believe how effectively Random-MaXTM worked.

I have a holiday home on the Indian Ocean coast. Although I have a weekly ‘pool service’ my pool cleaner was constantly getting stuck in one corner and no one was there to get it back to work in my pool. I fitted a Random-MaXTM in desperation and I am so impressed with the results. Even my skeptical pool guy is impressed, it makes his job easier.

Tips

If you have a “Pool Pilot” swivel in your hose you may leave it in place, it is fully compatible with the Random-MaXTM. However, remove any other swivels from your hose, they will prevent Random-MaXTM from steering properly.
Have sufficient hose to reach the furthest point of your pool but don’t have excessive hose.
If you have a particularly difficult pool you can increase the randomness of the cleaner by occasionally stopping and re-starting the pump after allowing a few minutes for the hose to relax. For convenience you can programme your pump timer to stop and restart two or three times a day.
Bent hoses will hinder cleaning efficiency. Occasionally lay the hose sections out straight in the sun to soften them, then cool them whilst still straight.
Hoses are buoyant, so weights may be positioned to correct for this and allow the cleaner to sit properly on the pool floor. Usually, one weight about a metre from the cleaner is sufficient for this.
Make sure your hoses don’t leak air when under suction. Replace cracked hoses.
Keep your weir basket, pump basket and filter clean for optimal cleaning performance.
Random-MaXTM is not a substitute for worn out pool cleaners, keep your cleaner in good working order.
