Dragonfly Floating Pool Cleaner

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 $20 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.

It can be used in conjunction with other automatic pool cleaners either via an attachment or just interchanging them as needed, however as we have mentioned previously, we find most customers use the Dragonfly as a stand alone product with a quick vacuum from time to time and often with the addition of a leaf canister

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.

    Great for Leafy Areas

    Posted by Dave on 27th Jun 2017

    Had the Dragonfly pool cleaner for nearly 12 months and it's made a huge difference to the appearance and cleanliness of our pool. Our yard backs onto a lovely park that is full of large gum trees. Great for the shade and outlook from our house but it meant that our pool was forever filled with very large leaves and gum blossom. We went through several pool cleaners before we tried the Dragonfly that couldn't cope with the amount and size of the leaf litter that was coming into our pool.

    The Dragonfly took a little time and experimentat ion to set up perfectly but now it is far and away the best cleaner for removing the large leaves and amount of debris that comes from the nearby park.

    Highly recommended for those in areas near large trees that continually drop leaves.

    We recently added Dragonfly Mark II into our pool (&family). Coming across the Dragonfly a few years ago was the best thing ever for our pool, it has never looked better. The floats system on the new unit has only made a great idea even better! Getting away now no longer requires thinking or worrying about water levels or keeping the pool clean. Dragonfly takes care of that. So glad we could adopt Dragonfly Mark II, we would be lost without it. Also, Dragonfly Mark I is still operational but has been retired to the shed as a probably never to be needed backup after many years of faithful service! Thankyou Max for your prompt and friendly assistance. Much appreciated.

    Performs exactly as described

    Posted by Scott on 14th Jun 2017

    My first impression of the performance of the Dragonfly Floating Pool Cleaner is very positive. It performed exactly as described. I am very impressed. Within an hour of setting it up all of the leaves, dirt and pollen floating on the surface had been skimmed up. I am very confident that this will solve my ongoing battle with leaves and debris in the pool. Given last night’s results I think a couple of trees in our yard may have escaped the chainsaw.

    Truly Ingenious

    Posted by John on 28th May 2017

    Thank you for my Dragonfly Floating Pool Cleaner. I saw the Dragonfly on ABC’s The New Inventors some years ago and have always intended to buy one. I am delighted with my purchase! It works perfectly and is significantly reducing the leaf litter on my pool’s floor. Congratulations on your marvelous product, it is truly ingenious! Thanks once again.

    Great Aussie product.

    Posted by Peter on 8th May 2017

    I was a bit of sceptic at first but I am so pleased with my Dragonfly. I have a huge tree that drops loads of leaves and no other cleaners have been able to keep my pool clean. The Dragonfly was a little tricky to install but once I had it up and running it has been amazing, my pool is so clean. Wish I bought one years ago. Aussie invented and good service. Highly recommend.

    Helped remove all the flowers from nearby tree

    Posted by Elizabeth on 8th May 2017

    The Dragonfly has been excellent at keeping our pool clean. We have a huge Jacaranda tree surrounding our pool and we were forever having to scoop out the flowers. It's saved me so much time. Maintaining the pool is no longer a chore and now we have more time to enjoy it. Was easy to install and its saved me so much time

    Works great

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Jan 2017

    The key to this product seems to be adjusting the float heights so that the weirs are at the optimal depth below the surface. It took me 2 or 3 adjustments to get it right because the bouyancy seemed to vary a bit. This was perhaps because of overnight accumulation of bubbles on the floats. Now that it is adjusted the skimmer bobs up and down and skims the pool very well.

    Simple Effective Product

    Posted by Julian Donohue on 27th Jan 2016

    I am using this in place of my built-in skimmer box which developed an "air leak" and was disruptive to fix (involving removing declk and digging up concrete). Luckily we had an unused outlet intended for a poaris and we connected this to the filter pump and have attached the Dragonfly to this as the only pool skimmer.

    So far it has worked flawlessly even clearing the pool of "gum flower fluff" blown in during recent Sydney winds.

    So far, so good...

    Posted by Vivienne on 12th Nov 2015

    Delivery time was excellent, although my package was missing the necessary screws. Phone contact with Max quickly remedied the problem. Set up was a bit fiddly but once the Dragonfly was working I was surprised at how quickly it cleaned up the mess of tiny leaves and bugs which constantly fall into my pool from the surrounding paperbarks, lilly pillies and bamboo. The Dragonfly tends to get stuck in certain places even though I have plenty of hose length. At first I thought this would be a problem, but the pool currents eventually seem to draw most of the surface rubbish into the cleaner. So far it seems to be doing an efficient job of keeping the pool surface clean.

    Brilliant Surface Pool Cleaner

    Posted by Clare on 11th Aug 2015

    The Dragon Fly is the most efficient surface cleaner ever. It has taken care of fine dust-like brown pollen on the surface of our pool that nothing else managed. It totally lives up to its promise.
