OK... I am looking to get a cleaner to relieve the wife of forgetting to vacuum the pool (and not always remembering how to do everything). I was thinking a robotic to not bother my filtration system.
I have a 16X32 pool from 3' to 5' deep, pretty simple with steps in the shallow end at the corner with bench seats out on both sides. We have a screened enclosure around the pool so most large debree is kept out. Our dogs will track a few leaves in now and then, but that is all. I am wanting something for the fine debree cleaning. I think I will not need a remote with a simple design pool and want to keep my cost down.
I just purchased an Intellaflow variable speed pump to install very soon. I went with it as the cost was not much more than a 2 speed was going to cost and it will give me many options of programming (once I figure it out). It was $825 with free shipping and a 2 speed was going to be $700, that is why I decided to go this route. I don't think I want to go with a suction cleaner and create hassle of connecting and removing.
2 options that I have been considering are:

http://epicpoolsupply.com/ecojet-plus.php/ (More than I want to spend, but saw it had great reviews)
I am open for suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
