Looking into a pool cleaner. I live in florida and the pool is screened so rarely do I have any leaf problems. Mostly sand and small particulate debris from general use and pavers. I have been leaning toward the robotic cleaners since they don't run off the pool pumps. the pool is average size, definately not a large pool (don't recall the gallons off hand). Seems like most recommend the Maytronics line of cleaners. Is the M4 or premier overkill for my need? The cartridge filter seems like a bonus. Are the bag cleaners really that cumbersome? Could I get away with an M3?
