The Zodiac Caretaker is the original in-floor pool and spa cleaning system that uses the pressure of clean water to provide circulation benefits, and maintenance cost savings. When the system is on, water is directed by the Zodiac Caretaker automatic valve to the cleaning heads. In approximately one hour, all cleaning heads in all banks are activated, with each head cleaning a full 360-degree radius. In one hour, a Caretaker System circulates clean water throughout the entire pool. Every section of your pool receives an even distribution of chemicals and heat that prevents algae growth and eliminates cold spots.
The Caretaker 5-Port in-floor system provides the most advanced technology available in the swimming pool industry today. It is engineered to reduce the daily cost of operating a pool through controlled energy and chemical use.
The Zodiac Caretaker system is a custom-designed water management and cleaning system that uses the pressure of clean water to systematically circulate chemicals and heat to create a cost effective, balanced, and healthier pool environment. Floors, steps, swim-outs, benches and difficult to reach areas are cleaned by the inconspicuous rotating pop-up heads that either move debris into the main drain or into suspension where it is removed by the skimmer.
How does the Zodiac Caretaker 5-Port Valve In-Floor Cleaning System operate?One bank, or group of heads, comes up at a time, rotates to a new position, and disperses a high-pressure stream of filtered water for a short period of time. The valve then automatically cycles to another bank of heads and continues to cycle as long as the pump is on and the system is activated. Between cycles, the heads that are not in use will return flush with the pool floor. When the system completes a full cycle, all the heads return flush with the pool floor.
