Product Overview

An Australian made pool cleaner

Do you want a swimming pool cleaner that removes the leaves BEFORE they sink?

A floating pool skimmer is the best pool cleaner for pools with lots of leaves.

Pool cleaner in swimming pool

  • The Dragonfly is a mobile floating pool skimmer that prevents the leaves and dirt from sinking by cleaning the pools surface first

  • Leaves are removed quickly and not left to decompose in your water. Less nitrogen from rotting leaves = cleaner pool = less chlorine and other chemicals are used (and a more hygienic pool)

  • Made in Australia from quality UV resistant materials

  • Unique patented product (no other pool surface cleaner can legally sell / compare to ours)

  • FOUR YEAR WARRANTY (our product LASTS)

  • FREE shipping in Australia $100 AUD for the rest of the world

  • Lots of great reviews on our site and on independent websites.

pool skimmer

One of the biggest problems owing a swimming pool is maintaining it. It feels like you spend more time scooping leaves out and adjusting chemicals than enjoying it. It shouldn't be that hard. Pool owners are continually trying to automate their pool cleaning, not many people have the time to do this. 


The bottom of your pool is dirty because leaves and debris land on the surface and aren't removed by the skimmer box quickly enough.

It makes sense to skim the leaves off the top of your pool before they sink to the bottom.



If the leaves are removed quickly, your pool is cleaner most of the time. If the leaves are not removed quickly then they will sink to the bottom and your bottom cleaner will remove them. In the meantime you will have a dirty pool, with rotting leaves affecting the PH of your pool and requiring more chemicals to balance your water.

If you have lots of leaves, insects or other floating debris that you are having to continually scoop up then the Dragonfly will help you as:

  • It acts like a floating mobile skimmer box and takes advantage of the winds and surface tension of your pools surface to skim the top of the pool

  • It captures the majority of leaves before they sink.

  • It drastically reduces the time you spend scooping leaves out of your pool. 

  • It removes oil, pollen, insects and other tiny particles.


Your pool cleaner shouldn't be expensive, should be built to last and come with a good warranty. 

Some pool cleaners cost up to $1000. You could hire somebody to clean your pool on a weekly basis for that price!

  • We have customers who have been using the same Dragonfly pool skimmer for over ten years!

  • It has only one moving part and no electrical parts or panels that can break down

  • Manufactured in Australia from quality from UV resistant Luren S plastic - You won't be handing out more money in a years time after it wears out in the sun

  • It is not a gimmick it holds worldwide PATENTS due to its originality.

  • It will not roll over like some other products requiring you to continually adjust it

  • It doesn't have a net that can wear out like other pool skimmers. The Dragonfly picks up the finest particles (including oil) taking them straight to your filter. Products with nets tend to let particles through essentially recycling the debris throughout your pool.



How the Dragonfly Floating Pool Cleaner is operated 

  • It works by plugging into your existing fixed pool skimmer box using a pool hose. 

  • It is then left to float on your pools surface using the wind and surface tension of the pool to skim and suck the debris from your pools surface. Essentially it is a pool surface cleaner.  

  • It has no net as some other pool surface cleaners have, so the Dragonfly is able to skim smallest of particles off the surface to be captured by your pools filtration device. Nets will always let small particles through them and nets also have to be replaced.

  • As it is not jerking around (like some other automatic pool cleaners) it is gentle on your hoses, prolonging the life of your hose
  • More detailed information can be found here

It is moved by the wind and normal currents using the surface tension to delicately suck all debris into it. Other floating cleaners are jerked around the pool either by a bottom cleaner or are self propelled. Once there is lots of movement on the surface of the pool, the surface tension is broken which reduces circulation and makes the product more inefficient. This is why pool surface cleaners attached to bottom cleaners or surface cleaners that are self propelled are not efficient. They disrupt the surface of the pool and have to work harder to skim. 




If you have a pool that is surrounded by trees or has lots of floating matter from insects, seeds, grass, even sawdust or other materials the Dragonfly will save you so much time. Yes you could spend triple the cost of a Dragonfly and get a robotic cleaner. You will still need to scoop leaves out of your pool!!!

Take a look at our Facebook page, under testimonials, or below at the reviews to see what our customers have to say.

Still unsure about why to buy a pool skimmer or what to look for when deciding on a pool skimmer? We have written an article that has some suggestions to help you out.





Warranty Information

4 year warranty. With only one moving part, the Dragonfly is built to last. We have many customers who have working Dragonfly's in their pool after 10 years.

    Easy setup and works well with solar heating

    Posted by Ruby on 21st Sep 2020

    It took me a while to finally decide on spending the money, I'm glad I finally did! The Dragonfly was easy to set up and works exactly as described. I found it often twisted the hose if I used a longer one (the hoses I have all float), but a 3m piece of hose does very well to have the unit stay in a fixed position. I run my filter about 4 hours per day through a large solar setup and since I plugged it in two weeks ago nothing has remained on the surface long enough to sink to the bottom of the 5x11m pool. We don't get a huge amount of large leaf litter, but lots of small stuff , dust, ants etc. So far it seems to be doing a great job clearing the surface of the pool from it's fixed position. Fast delivery in Australia. Cheers

    Excellent pool cleaner

    Posted by Lee on 5th Mar 2018

    Once set up correctly, it does an excellent job of removing any floating debris. Far better than waiting for it to sink and most times not being picked up by other cleaners. Also good at removing the other small particles/objects that don't sink, which before I had to skim a net over to clear.

    Excellent product

    The dragonfly has been receiving great reviews and ratings from so many people which swayed me to purchase one. What can I say? I agree. It just works. It keeps the top of the pool (and consequently the bottom of the pool), clean. To get the best out of it, and to strategically use it through the day when winds blow, I've set my pool pump for an hour in the morning, an hour at midday, then four hours in the afternoon. This seems to do a great job. I am completely happy with my dragonfly.

    A brilliant invention

    Posted by Bill W, Kareela NSW, Australia on 3rd Feb 2018

    Moved into a home with a pool, in a leafy suburb, many years back. I soon realised that pools and leafy suburbs don't co-exist very well. A good cleaner kept the bottom reasonably tidy, but cleaning the pool surface was a 1 to 2 hour daily routine. (Sometimes longer.) Then I saw the Dragonfly floating cleaner advertised on the internet, and purchased one. My smartest purchase for the pool to date. It works every bit as well as intended, better than expected, and has done so for many years. Now the pool sparkles every day and... my time is mine! Thank you for your brilliant invention.

    Works well

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jan 2018

    This the second Dragonfly I have owned for different pools. Simply keeps the pool cleaner and makes for a lot less cleaning on the bottom of the pool as the dragonfly gets so much off the top.Easy to set up, just make sure to put some weights on the pool hose as this makes the dragonfly move more freely and the debris don't get dammed up on the hose . Great product
