I have a new pool with a Polaris 380. I'm not happy with it. It gets hung up by stairs too often. Eventually, it does get free of the stairs, but it happens to get hung up a lot.
More importantly, I also feel like it misses spots every now and then. Sure, I can leave it running 24/7 and probably get good results, but I was thinking that I really should only need it running for a period of time each day. It supposedly does a full cleaning in 3 hours, but I haven't found that to be the case.
My first thought was that they must make automatic cleaners that have some kind of functionality to know where they've cleaned already and avoid missing areas. So, I did some research and found out the difference between a robot (what I think I want) and a pressure cleaner (what I have).
Am I correct that there are no robots out there that also can be hooked up to a booster pump for extra effectiveness/power?
Thanks in advance for any info and/or recommendations.
