It's been asked many times already (i've done some searching & reading!) but wanted to validate my thoughts with you all...
33k gunite inground pool
2 skimmers & 4 wall jets
no dedicated pressure or suction lines
Plan to install big 2spd pump & run 24/7 on Low
Want a pool cleaner which will work with (relatively) low flow
Debris type: Leaves leaves leaves, acorns acorns acorns, twigs and twigs!!
I've been running a Dirt Devil pro-V, more or less a Creepy Crawly-type suction side. It gets jammed on the hard stuff like twigs and acorns. Plus it takes pretty good suction to run (current 2.25hp 1-spd). I do have a PoolDevil skimmer, which helps a lot, but getting tired of unjamming the vacuum.
My thinking is
1) pressure side will work @ lower pump speed
2) pressure side will handle the big debris better, not get jammed
3) pressure side will not introduce all that garbage into my lines & pump basket
the polaris 360 I can get for around $360, looks like TPC model is around 450. I've seen mixed reviews on the Polaris and nothing but good on TPC.
Any feedback before I blow a few hundred bucks??
