    Pool cleaner on the cheap, sub $200

    I am looking to purchase a pool cleaner next year when I open up.

    Right now I am trying to stay under $200 for the unit.

    I want something that can have its own pump setup (don't run it to the pool pump) or if not, one that is good.

    Thoughts?

    My Wanda does a good job. She does use the skimmer and my only pump. Here is a link.

    thanks! I heard about these, will look them up more.

    In general do you want a bag setup or is it better to send it to the pump / filter?

    I have a cartridge based one if that helps.

    Mine goes to the pump basket and what is too small for the basket to catch to the filter (sand). It works good for me!
