    Automatic cleaner for a lazy L shape

    I get tired of vacuuming the pool but the owner (my GF) says she's been told automatic cleaners get hung up in her shaped pool.
    I tend to think that old info like the fight I went through to stop using algecide and switching over to the TFP method and buying a TF100 also applies to what cleaners might have been able to do back in the 90's and what they can do today.

    Is there an automatic cleaner that works well in a lazy L pool ?? I'm in the process of getting a new pump (two speed), filter and valves so I'm open to what anyone thinks might be a good vacuum for our pool.

    Steps, ledges, hard corners, etc. are all hard obstacles for a robot but an L-shaped pool will present little problem. Make sure you get one with a cord long enough.
