What Are The Differences Between The Water Tech Volt Fx-4Li and The Water Tech Volt Fx-8Li?

Water Tech offers a line of rechargeable vacuums that are an excellent choice when looking for alternatives to clean your pool efficiently and effectively. Two of our most popular models are the Water Tech Volt FX-4Li and the Water Tech Volt Fx-8Li.

                        Water Tech Volt Fx-4i                                                                            Water Tech Volt Fx-8Li

                                                                                      

Both are great options for pool owners. However, there are some differences to be aware of, today we are going to compare both of them. 

Size

Volt Fx-4Li: 8" x 7 ½” x 20 ¾”"

Volt Fx-8Li: 7 ¼” x 12 ¾” x 23 ½”

Weight

Volt Fx-4Li: 3.40 lbs

Volt Fx-8Li: 5.62 lbs

Vacuum Head Size

Volt Fx-4Li: 7 ½”

Volt Fx-8Li: 12 ¾”

Power Rating

Volt Fx-4Li: 275 Power Rating

Volt Fx-8Li: 800 Power Rating

Run Time

Volt Fx-4Li: 45 Minutes

Volt Fx-8Li: 60 Minutes 


What These Differences Mean:

  • Size: The Volt FX-4Li and the Volt Fx-8Li have a size difference of ¾” x 5 ¼” x 2 ¾”. This will help a pool owner determine which vacuum would suit their pool the best.
  • Weight: The Volt FX-4Li and the Volt Fx-8Li have a weight difference of 2.22 lbs. Largely due to the different sizes of batteries and motors between the two models. The Volt FX-8Li has a larger motor and battery, allowing more debris to be removed, leaving your pool spotless in no time. It is also important to note that both of these models are still very manageable to transport for all ages.
  • Vacuum Head Size: The vacuum head size is a major difference between both of these models. With the larger model (Volt FX-8Li), it suits larger pools well because it allows more debris to be let in and picked up. However; if you have a smaller pool, (let’s use an Intex pool for the sake of conversation) The smaller model, (Volt Fx-4Li) would be a great choice. Since Intex pools are relatively small, anything larger would be overkill.
  • Power Rating: Power rating refers to the amount of power that can be stored in the battery which affects power and use time. Larger power ratings can output more power for longer periods of time.
  • Run Time: The Volt FX-4Li and the Volt FX-8Li have a run time differential of fifteen minutes. Therefore, if you have a smaller pool to be vacuumed the Volt FX-4Li would be a more efficient and energy-saving choice.
