I think I have decided to stick with a Polaris pool cleaner. With the research I have done and the people I have spoke with it seems like Polaris would work best in my situation. The pool is being built now and there was a separate PVC line run with a quick disconnect just for a Polaris. The pool company suggested the Polaris 380, but am I better off going with a robotic cleaner? My pool is going to be 28k gallons and there are NO trees anywhere! The property is fairly new and the only trees in my yard are the 30+ arborvitaes I planted last year for some privacy. I have a weeping willow and two birch trees all less then a couple of years old so they aren't very mature yet.
Thanks for your help & suggestions!
