    Hey, Mark,

    Welcome to the forum I think no one has replied yet because it's really hard to pick a "best" one. With a pool that large, I would suggest a pretty large head and I think you can easily get them 18" across (perhaps even 24" but that might be overkill) Anyway, just pick the one that common sense tells you is your best bet.

    I bought a vacuum head at ACE Hardware a couple of years ago that's the best I've ever used.

    It's a rectangular shape with one of the long sides longer than the other. I'm sure there's a geometry word for the shape, I just don't know it. Isosceles trapezoid, maybe. It's top is light grey and see-through which is an enormous help when vacuuming up those fine lines of dust. I can literally see them being sucked into the vacuum hose. Has a good weight so it stays on the bottom and maintains suction.

    I can't say what size mine is. My pool is 16x30 and it does a fine job cleaning that square footage.
