Pool cleaner has gone bad. Was a suction side cleaner that worked ok, but never really worked wonders. Now that it has to be replaced, what are recommendations for replacement.
I am fairly sure that the reason the suction side cleaner never worked really well is 2 reasons.
Builder never devoted a line to the cleaner, so you have to run it through the skimmer, and it seems like it is tough to get that great of suction doing it that way, to many bypasses that will work rather then devote to suction of cleaner.
We can put a booster pump on to use a return type cleaner ( polaris 280).
Or work with a separate powered unit (dolphin supreme m4).
The difficulty lies in that the deep end of the pool has sides that are carved to look like stone, so doubtful any cleaner could do that end but the other sides are not as rough.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
