Self Cleaning Swimming Pools

Enjoy your pool without the painful maintenance

Most people who buy a pool start off with dreams of relaxing, enjoying time with family and friends. What they don’t picture is the hard work which is typically needed to look after that pool – all the manual cleaning, the heavy lifting of automatic cleaners, the endless task to keep your water balanced, healthy and safe to swim in.

The Vantage in-floor cleaning system is a unique water circulation system designed to reduce chemical usage, eliminate cold spots and keep your pool clean of debris without the need for regular hand vacuuming or any other cleaning equipment.

How a Compass self-cleaning pool increases your property value

For some buyers a pool can be a deterrent to buying a house. Pools often seem to go hand-in-hand with a lot of hard work; the great thing about Vantage is that it allows you to have a hassle free pool. Real Estate Agents regularly tell us that they love selling homes that have one of our Vantage operated pools because they can finally sell the idea of having a pool that you can truly enjoy. If you’re thinking of selling your home in the future, be sure to stop and think about how your pool will impact the sale of your house. Wouldn’t it be great if the market saw your pool as a key selling point?

The Vantage self-cleaning option makes for a really strong sales point. I can assure prospective buyers that the pool will require virtually no maintenance and is very economical to run. I know this because I have a Compass Pool in my backyard. I can’t promise that with any other pool. It’s also a real point of difference when potential buyers are comparing similar houses. A great advantage to have in a tough housing market.

How Vantage self-cleaning pool differs from an ordinary pool

What are traditional pools?

For around 50 years, swimming pools have been built using the same traditional operating system.

We call this the ‘eyeball and skimmer’ system. Experts say that a healthy pool should have its entire water contents circulated at least once (preferably twice) over a 24 hour period – this helps to ensure chemicals are adequately mixed and that bacteria find it hard to thrive.

The problem with traditional pools

The problem with the traditional ‘eyeball and skimmer’ system is that it pushes water across the top of your pool into a skimmer. This skimmer then feeds that water through a filter and into a pump which pushes it back into your pool through eyeball return jets. Sure it circulates the volume of a standard pool in about 8 hours, but does it really circulate the whole pool, or just the top third over and over again? The Vantage operating system is a revolutionary new way to operate your pool. In-floor nozzles work to push water around your pool in a circular fashion which ensures that all water is constantly moving. Water at the top of the pool is circulated to the bottom and the benefits of this include: warmer water from the top being spread throughout the pool, and an even spread of bacteria-killing chemicals everywhere in the pool.

Arguably the best benefit of the Vantage system is that the pool cleans itself. All you have to do is empty your leaf baskets – no separate cleaning equipment required!

Traditional pool design uses old-fashioned methods of returning filtered water back to the pool through eyeball returns near the surface. This does not put the heated and chemically treated water on the bottom of the pool where it is needed. Heat and chemicals near the surface are quickly dissipated by the wind and by sun ‘burn-off’. Tests show that conventionally heated pools consume up to 50% more chemicals and 40% more energy than heated pools with in-floor systems.

The Solution is Vantage self-cleaning and circulation

Self cleaning pool with VantageUnlike traditional pool circulation systems, the Vantage system circulates your pool from bottom to top. All of the layers of the pool water are penetrated, eliminating ‘dead spots’ where algae and bacteria grow. With Vantage you make dramatic savings on chemical usage while enjoying a cleaner, healthier pool.

In its natural state, water is constantly moving. When it stops it stagnates and becomes contaminated with algae and bacteria. Like a mountain stream, a Compass Vantage system regularly circulates and constantly refreshes the water in your pool.

A pool that saves your time, money and the environment

It saves you more time than any other option

Suction cleaners and robotic cleaners are best described as semi-automatic cleaning systems. Once YOU have unpacked them from their hiding place, they need to be positioned in the pool and either connected to a suction point (suction cleaners) or connected to a power point (robotic cleaners).

To unpack, install, and then remove your semi-automatic cleaning system will take at least 20 minutes of your precious TIME on each occasion. During summer, when you’re using your pool the most, this can be a daily task.

In-floor cleaning systems are the only truly automatic cleaning systems because they are permanently installed and operate automatically on a daily basis.

Less electricity and significantly fewer chemicals to keep your pool healthy and clean

Pool running costs include electricity to run the various pumps, and chemicals to balance and sanitise the water. So it only makes sense to consider both costs when comparing the 3 types of cleaning systems. As each cleaning system operates differently, we have based electricity costs on achieving a standard turnover rate of pool water. It is generally accepted that pool water should be turned over twice a day to achieve good filtration.

Reduce chemical usage by up to 50%. Save up to $600 in running costs a year*. No unsightly robots or suction cleaners. Safer, cleaner healthier water. No more cold spots of water.

*Estimate of annual electricity costs based on 8m x 4m pool with minimum 2x turnover of pool water and energy efficient filter pumps. Calculated at 30c per kWhr, and annual chemical costs of $400 (less for in-floor system)
