    Wondering what pool cleaner I should buy

    Hi, I have a 50x25 feet pool with a volume of 49000 gallons. I have a hayward super pump (model number SP2607X10A), 1HP. I decided to buy an automatic cleaner, and I have been looking at the polaris brand. I live in Brampton, Ontario, with half a dozen pine trees beside the pool with maple trees near by. Any recommendations? Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the forum. I would suggest a robot and you need a pretty robust one....about $1300 +. That's a big pool and it will be best served by a big cleaner.

    I vote with dave above. Big pool needs a big cleaner. You will probably do best with a robot.

    Like this one: Zodiac 9550 Sport Robotic In-Ground Pool Cleaner

    Make sure whatever you buy can handle a pool as long as yours.

    I used to have a suction side cleaner - worthless. Now I have a robot, and it is awesome. I absolutely agree a robot is the way to go. I have a Dolphin dx4 and have been happy with it. But I don't have a good point of reference for comparison as it is the only robot I have ever had.

    I suggest a Dolphin Supreme M5/500. Your pool almost qualifies it for a commercial robot application, but what I suggested is the best you can get up to that level. IMO anyway.

    Thanks for the replies. Are there any reputable brands you can name? I want to make sure I buy one that will last me a long time.

    Also, I forgot to mention that this pool has approximately a 45 degree slope at it's max, is that significant?

    Get the top of the line Dolphin M4 or M5. Your pool is huge and you need a serious cleaner. The Dolphin will go everywhere and will climb the walls to the waterline. It won't get stuck in a pattern and won't get hung up on the drain.

    Newest is the Dolphin s300i with Bluetooth technology. Have had it for two months and so pleased with it. Was 1200.00 and worth every penny!
