Help me decide which cleaner

Posted by kahlanne (My Page) on

I have a 40X20 foot in ground liner pool that desperately needs a cleaner. I have researched until my brain is numb and figured I would just ask. I would prefer to buy locally and there are a couple of options available but I just don't know which to choose. Whichever we choose has to be good at picking up live oak leaves and occassionally pine needles. Our options are...

1. Polaris 280 with booster pump $600

2. Pentair Legend Kreepy Krauly without booster pump $350

3. Dolphin Robotic (not sure which model yet since I havent been to the store; only called them) $650

4. Nitro Robotic (again have to check which model when I go to store today) $600

Thanks so much

I wanted to add that my pool is rectangle. Also, my husband likes the idea of the robotic since it will be the easiest to use. We have power supply right at the end of the decking. We do have the plumbing for a booster pump as well.

RE: Help me decide which cleaner

The 280, the Legend (Kreepy Krawly/Pentair) are both fine units.

I am not a big fan of robots.

On the suction side, The Pool Cleaner wins over venerable Kreepy Krawly.

How is the blue diamond robot in your opinion? I heard good things.
