trying to stay around $700 but I see the Triton would be about $100 over that price point. This will be our first pool and I'm definitely don't want to have to manually clean the pool down here in Texas in June/July/August. I think I've got the main differences between the Nautilus Plus and the Triton as being the Triton can clean the waterline tile, has another shorter cleaning mode and comes with a caddy and a decent remote. Both are top-loading and use filters.
If I were to add the caddy to the Nautilus Plus the Triton would be just around $40-$50 more than the NP so I guess it comes down to how useful/handy the caddy truly is. If it's handy to have, I suppose I'm better off with the Triton over the Nautilus Plus then? Do I have the basic differences between the two stated correctly? Seems I can't go wrong with either one and it seems like both will be a nice fit for my pool (sport/play pool, 34x23 or so, lots of benches and a above average tanning ledge)
