    Best Automatic Pool Cleaner / Vacuum for Intext Ultra Frame Pools?

    I have a 16x48 Ultra Frame. I'm tired of seeling all the debris on the floor of the pool everyday. I've used the little vacuum piece that came with the pool that works with a garden hose and it does an ok job but its very time consuming and the next day i have a ton of dirt / sand / grit ect on the floor again. I want to know what you all think the best automatic pool cleaner is to use on the Intex above ground ultra frame pools. Thanks!

    I have the 18x48 ultra frame and use the Hayward 900 - Wanda the Whale. It works great. I doubt it's the best on the market for the application, but the price was in my budget and it does a wonderful job cleaning the bottom of the pool.

    how often do you run Wanda? Does it pick up all the debris? What about alge?

    Just one or twice per week and she picks up everything off the pool floor. I've never had a issue with algae, so can't speak to that.

    Here she is doing her thing.

    I love mine. I haven't vacuumed manually at all this year. I leave my robot in the pool nearly all the time.
