Cleaning a pool is not easy, but its a necessity. Using the right pool cleaner can take up most of that pool cleaning burden off of your shoulders. But with so many types of pool cleaners out in the market, choosing the right one for your pool can be daunting. So, lets simplify it for you.

But before you make up your mind to buy one, lets understand what is a suction pool cleaner.

What are suction pool cleaners?

Suction pool cleaners work in tandem with your pool filtration system (the line that sucks water out of your pool to be filtered). It attaches to the suction port of your pool filter pump to create a vacuum that sucks the debris out of your pool surface. The debris then gets filtered by your existing pool filtration system.

How does suction pool cleaners work?

As the name suggests, suction pool cleaners create a suction to remove the dirt from your pool floor. Suction cleaner hose is hooked to the skimmer on the suction side of the pool. There are no onboard motors in the cleaner as the suction is created from your pool's suction side motors. The cleaner will automatically move around in your pool in random direction and also climb up the walls to clean every surface.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
