    Above Ground Automatic Pool Cleaner

    Hello to all! I am looking to buy an automatic pool cleaner and would like to get other folks' opinions on which to purchase. I am not looking to spend over about $300 but do want something that is going to work well. We have a 16x48 round above ground pool, several trees in the back yard and it is not unusual for us to have 10 kids in the pool everyday. Any help and advice is welcomed and appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Check out the Pool Rover Jr. I have one and have been very happy with the way it cleans my pool. I just googled and they are running under $300.

    I have a Wanda the Whale. I am happy with her. She even works great when my pump is on low speed. I think I paid around 130ish on Amazon.

    Do you know if the Pool Rover Jr will work with a Intex 2800 Sand Pump?

    I've only had it a few days, buy the Intex robot is working well in my 16x48. $49 from Amazon.

    It doesn't actually pick up stuff as much as stir it up for the regular skimmer to get, but it does pick up a little bit itself too. There's a screen in the bottom that you take out to clean.
