Zodiac® MX6™ ELITE
Meet the MX8 Elite’s little Brother. The MX6 has been on the market for quite some time now and Zodiac upgraded the MX8 cleaner a couple of years ago to the MX8 Elite. It was time to do the same for the MX6 and now we finally have the MX6 Elite. The major upgrade to both the MX8 and MX6 to make them Elite are the Scrubbing Brushes on the Cyclonic Scrubbing Turbine Assembly.
Here is more about the MX6 Elite from Zodiac:
“The MX6 Elite brings superior scrubbing action and best-in-class vacuum power to a compact suction cleaner. Combining Cyclonic Scrubbing Brushes that spin and scrub fine and stuck-on debris with the impressive wall-climbing ability and programmed navigation, the MX6 Elite provides comprehensive cleaning of your pool floor, walls, and waterline. An innovative low-flow design consumes less energy, making the MX6 Elite the ideal cleaner for smaller pools with 2-speed or variable speed pumps.”
Cyclonic Suction - Powerful suction and aggressive wall-climbing.
Active Scrubbing - Cyclonic Scrubbing Brushes deep clean pool’s surfaces.
Comprehensive Coverage - X-Drive Navigation ensures complete pool coverage from floor to waterline.
Optimized Flow Control - Flow Regulator Valve automatically controls excess flow for optimal performance and longevity.
Energy Efficient - Articulating turbine blades provide ultra-efficient operation, even on low-flow pumps.
The compact size of the MX6 Elite is one of the best features of this cleaner. It is not designed for very large pools but for those with small to medium size pools, this cleaner would be ideal. It not only cleans and scrubs the floor of the pool but will climb the walls of your pool and scrub up to the waterline.
If you are running a Variable Speed Pump, the MX6 Elite is light enough to work on a lower RPM too. You can run the cleaner at 2600 RPM in most cases and still be within the ideal range for the speed of the cleaner. This will help maximize your energy savings and keep your pool clean each week. Not many suction side cleaners can work off of lower RPM or lower speeds of a Variable Speed Pump but the MX6 Elite is designed for it.
The scrubbing brushes are what sets the MX6 Elite apart from other suction side cleaners. It is the only cleaner, besides the larger MX8 Elite that is designed to scrub the pool surface to remove dirt, algae and stubborn debris. The Cyclonic Turbines were designed to give the cleaner better traction but since the turbines spin, adding brushes to them was just a brilliant and obvious move. You can see the cleaner just lifting dirt and debris right off the pool surface.
If you’re looking for an all-around great cleaner that will clean both the pool floors and walls, the MX6 Elite would be a great choice.
