Yeah, I know, there are a lot of threads that discuss aspects of this but I get a headache trying to digest the info and keeping it all straight. One thread says the Blue Diamond gets good reviews and when I look at the reviews, they are not stellar. A friend at the pool store swears by the Dolphin M3 but reviews are mixed there too. And so on. Wish there was a Consumer Reports like source.
Anyway, we live on the water (salt) in a sometimes harsh environment...in fact had to close it early last year because Hurricane Irene loaded it up with salt water and marsh grass. Once I get it open this spring, I do not want to have to be vacuuming all the time (I know I will at the beginning). The Polaris doesn't do diddly except run around one area (and I've done all the adjustments). Even manual vacuuming is sketchy because the next day stuff is back. The stuff is usually fine...not many leaves etc.
What are the top 3 or 4 robots, up to around $1000. This will be for a 20x40 above ground, 29,000 gal, light to med use, new SWG. BTW: why do they often differentiate beween AG and IG?
Thanks much...want to do some research while it is cold. Steve
