Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0192663A1] A swimming pool pressure cleaner (20) of the type motivated by water flow through it having: a set of two wheels (22a, b) rotatably mounted to the body (24); a turbine housing (38) having a water-flow chamber (40) with an inlet (70) and an outlet (74), the inlet held in proximity to the pool surface (54); a vaned rotor (48) rotatably mounted in the chamber; one or more one venturi jets (66a, b) secured to the body and oriented to direct water into the inlet to rotate the turbine and cause flow from the pool into the inlet; a drive member (76) secured to the rotor and a drive train extending to the wheels for synchronous rotation on the pool surface; a cam (100) rotatably secured to the body and drive by the rotor through reduction gearing (106); and a linkage (94) from the cam to one wheel (22a) to periodically interrupt the synchronous rotation of the wheels on the pool surface and change pool cleaner direction.
