A technology that's transforming the UK pool market at the moment is robotic pool cleaners. These brilliant bits of kit automatically vacuum the bottom and walls of your pool - all you need to do is put it in the water, and they'll collect any dust, particles or undeveloped algae that has settled. But they aren't just for the busy (and the lazy!). By regular usage along with good chemical maintenance, you can eliminate the need to vacuum, which means that you will not need to waste water vacuuming to waste and then refilling - if your house is on a water meter (some areas in Essex are now forcing new owners to use water meters), this could be a great investment.
