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.

    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.

    Does the job

    Posted by Scott on 11th Jan 2015

    After the initial float set up it's basically set and forget. Skims all the nasties of the pool surface with ease.

    Service from this business was excellent. Replied to my emails very quickly and package arrived within a day or two.

    never had a cleaner pool

    Posted by chris on 29th Dec 2014

    We are on the subshine coast queensland and have many wattles and paperbark trees around the pool. The barracuda G3 did an ok job of cleaning the bottom of the pool but we suffered from vast amounts of insects and pollen etc on the surface of the pool.

    Within about an hour of connecting the dragonfly the surface was crystal clear. We've never had the pool so clean!! Very happy with the dragonfly and would highly recommend it as an addition to a bottom of pool cleaner.

    Some small criticisms: 1. Would be good if the float securing nuts were wing nuts and thus wouldn't need a spanner to secure them. 2. Would be good if the right angle fitting was included. 3. Would be good if the existing fitting was a better match for zodiac hoses. 4. The claim that the dragonfly can be used with existing bottom cleaners is a bit misleading. I haven't tried this yet but I can't see how the pump would be strong enough to run the barracuda and the dragonfly at the same time. Would also need to find or more likely make a splitter so that they could both be run off the same pool hose. 5. Dragonfly seems to move and get stuck at the skimmer box but this could be my setup causing this. I understand some people tether the dragonfly in place.

    The dragonfly arrived in the post very quickly and was very well packed and pretty easy to set up.

    Dragonfly does not bite!

    Posted by John Anderson on 2nd Dec 2014

    This is the second Dragonfly I have had. The floats are different which makes THE D MUCH lighter.It is easy to install and keeps the pool surface like glass.. I have a tree with big leaves but these get swallowed with ease. Great Machine. Saves a lot of time and work.

    Well done

    Posted by John D. on 2nd Nov 2014

    The Dragonfly is well made, solid, and does a great job. I have to tether it in the location where I want it to stay, otherwise the vacuum hose coils and drags the Dragonfly to the end of the pool where the regular skimmer is (making the Dragonfly redundant). Also, I think it needs the 90 degree elbow, and it should be part of the package, not an optional extra $35 (especially for a $6 item).
