Title (EN) A METHOD OF AND A DEVICE FOR OPERATING A POOL CLEANER
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT DE FAIRE FONCTIONNER UN NETTOYEUR DE PISCINE
Abstract:
(EN) A pumping system of a pool (10) pumps water through a pool cleaner (20) and hose (26) connected to a weir (18). Flow through the cleaner (20) is cyclically interrupted to repeatedly reciprocate the hose (26). A device (30) anchored to the weir (18) is coupled to the hose (26) via clip (38). The reciprocal motion of the hose (26) is transmitted to the device (30) where it is transduced to a swinging motion (42) via a lever (40) attached to the hose (26) via clip (36), whereby the hose (26) is moved cyclically in attitude and position to promote random motion of the cleaner (20) and to render the cleaner (20) less likely to get stuck.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, un circuit de pompage de piscine (10) pompe l'eau à travers un nettoyeur de piscine (20) et une manche à eau (26) reliée à un déversoir (18). Le flux qui s'écoule à travers le nettoyeur (20) est interrompu à intervalles réguliers afin d'imprimer un mouvement de va-et-vient répété à la manche à eau (26). Un dispositif (30) fixé au déversoir (18) est couplé à la manche à eau (26) par un serre-câble (38). Le mouvement de va-et-vient de la manche à eau (26) est transmis au dispositif (30), dans lequel il est transformé en un mouvement de balancement (42) au moyen d'un bras (40) attaché à la manche à eau (26) par un serre-câble (36), lequel bras modifie périodiquement l'orientation et la position de la manche à eau afin de favoriser le déplacement aléatoire du nettoyeur (20) et de réduire la probabilité que le nettoyeur (20) reste bloqué.
