    Above ground pool cleaner?

    I need a new cleaner for my above ground pool. Have had 3 "pool rover" in the past, frist one worked good the last two not so good. I want a good one that will last, but most of the ones that are recommended are for in ground pools. Some in ground pools have vinyl liners, so I'm not sure why one of the better cleaners would not work for my above ground pool ( That is 2.5' burried)? Any thoughts?
    33' X 54" above ground round pool, burried 2.5". 1.5hp motor sand filter. Matrix resin pool.

    Welcome, I love my "pool cleaner" It does need its own suction side port or use the skimmer port but man it works great.. I added a leaf catcher this year and love that also..

    Cowboycasey...Ever have any problems with the tires tearing up your vinyl? Are you using the stock tires that came on it? Thanks so much

    no problems what so ever, because there are very few moving parts and no automation the just work They are spendy compared to lesser ones but worth it for ease of use

    Can you tell I love it...

    Thanks so much for the reply. I just purchased one off of Amazon with the same Leafcatcher you suggested. Can't wait!
