    Re: Looking for best cleaner for pebble sheen!

    Most people only have experience with 1-2 cleaners, so no one is going to be able to tell you what the BEST is.

    You are also not being nearly specific enough about what you are looking for:
    suction cleaner?
    pressure cleaner?
    pressure cleaner with booster pump?
    robot?
    budget?

    I would imagine a suction cleaner, beachside so we will be getting a lot of sand. Unavoidable! Looking to bypass pool filter and budget is less than $1,000. Looking to do pebblesheen finish

    Thanks

    I don't think you fully grasp the differences: pool-school/automatic_pool_cleaners

    Not sure what you mean by " looking to bypass pool filter"??? The only cleaner that puts the dirt into the filter is a suction cleaner.

    Looks like I will be looking for a good pressure cleaner, as I want separate filter system. Don't want to plug in an electric cleaning robot and be swimming with an electric device in pool.
    Any good recommendations. Thx in advance

    Do you have a dedicated pressure side cleaning port that will give you enough pressure to run it? If not you are stuck with a suction cleaner, likely though the skimmer, or a robot.

    I like the idea of having a dedicated side cleaning port. I will have to have them factor that in proposal! Thanks

    Very happy with my Aquabot 4WD. Drop it in once a week for 3 hours; cleans well, low power, easy clean. Like it much better than my old pressure side cleaner.
