Simply so, how do you use a robot pool cleaner?
Also, do you vacuum a pool on backwash or waste?
If you do have this option, it is highly recommended that whenever you have algae, you will need to vacuum to waste. This option allows you to vacuum the algae up and send it out through the backwash line, avoiding getting algae into your filter sand.

You can swim while your bot cleans the pool, but it’s better not to. Swimming churns up the water. If the machine is in the water at the time, the current will buffet it, making it harder for it to complete its work. It’ll have to work harder to cover the same ground.
What type of surface does it have? Most robotic cleaners these days can handle any pool surface. For slick tile or a fiberglass pool, look for a cleaner that has a soft, super grip PVA brush. For other surfaces, wheeled or universal rubber PVC brushes will work just fine.
In general, it’s a good idea to vacuum your pool once a week. You should also vacuum your swimming pool any time you notice large amounts of debris, dirt, or leaves on the floor of the pool (for example, your pool may need vacuuming after a heavy storm).
Ideally, you need to run your robot pool cleaner daily or at least once a day if you’re always swimming in it. But if you don’t swim in it as much, run it at least once weekly or every two weeks. When you’re using a swimming pool cover all the time, you may wash your pool monthly.
It’s still best to handle all the tasks of cleaning and maintaining your pool, especially if it’s not that big. Getting an automatic pool cleaner may save us some time as they lessen the dirt or debris we have to clean. However, you will still have to skim the pool surface as they only clean the walls and floor.
Generally, you can expect at least 5 years‘ service from your quality robotic pool cleaner. The more expensive units are generally better quality – you do get what you pay for. If you keep your robotic pool cleaner in good condition, there is no reason it shouldn’t last much longer.
