There are two types of automatic pool cleaners, those with steering mechanisms and those without. The patented Pool Pilot kit easily converts a basic machine into a steered machine. In the kit is a specially shaped steering tube which is fitted to the pool cleaner, between the pool cleaner and the suction hose.
The hose is no longer in a straight line with the pool cleaner so the steering tube applies gentle side forces to the moving pool cleaner.
Also in the kit is a swivel clutch which is fitted in the suction hose at a joint between two hose sections. This clutch engages and seals tight when the circulation pump is running. When the pump stops it disengages, allowing the hose to rotate freely.
We recommend the use of best quality, branded suction hose. Pool Pilot works best when used with the popular helically formed hoses because the pump suction causes these hoses to shorten and twist slightly. This twist is released when the pump stops, causing the clutch to partially rotate and with it, the hose and the steering tube, which changes the steering angle.
This is repeated each time the filter pump cycles on and off. As it gradually rotates, the steering tube randomly redirects the pool cleaner into varying paths so cleaning a greater area of the pool.
This action also drives a stuck cleaner away from an obstruction and back to work in your pool. The swivel clutch does not rotate whilst the pump is running so no wear takes place which means your Pool Pilot will give you years of hassle free service.
