    Polaris 280 would be what I would go with. Solid reliable pressure cleaner. Or a Pentair Legend if you want another option.

    Both options are great, however the Legend has quite a price tag on it. My customers seem to love the Dolphin Deluxe line by Maytronics. No booster pump required and it scrubs twice as it passes. Most of any robotic cleaner will be an upgrade to a pressure side cleaner. Just make sure you don't pay Polaris for their nameplate. They are good cleaners, but they are a bit arrogant on their prices.

    The legend is a hair cheaper than the 280. Robotics are also a great option if you want to go that way. Costs more up front but uses less electricity than running a booster pump. Dolphin does make some really good ones, also Aquabots and Blue Diamonds are both really good robotics.

    Thank you for your advise, but since I already have a presuure pump I will go with the 280. Thanks all again!
