Hi everyone. I'm new to the forums and a first time pool owner as of 3 weeks ago! I have found a few issues that I'm presented with. Due to the size/depth of my pool I keep getting quote upwards to 125 to 140 a month for cleaning service. This seems to be insane!
I can handle getting my own chemicals, an eventually switching to a low maintence salt system. In the mean time cleaning the pool as become my number 1 quest. I have a simple barracuda creepy crawler cleaner but it blows. The issue is I have such a Steep slope from the shallow area to the deep end the cleaner only gets half way up before gravity turn the suction hoes and the cleaner turns around. This great if you want half of a pool cleaned.
Therefore a robotic cleaner it is but I am so lost! There are so many different brands models and everything in between. At first I thought the Dolphin was the go to then I hear it's out dated go with the Polaris then i Read it's just an over price toy go with the Aquabot. I need advice prices models suggestions.
The pool is about 8 feet deep. I get a lot of smal leaves in the bottom so I need something that can handle that. Don't want to go too high and price but I want something with some decent features. Any how open to all suggestions!
