    Auto pool cleaners

    Ok got my pool all up and running and it's grrrreat. Now I'm looking for a suction side cleaner. Every review or set of reviews, this one is the best then omg it is horrible from the next user. So I am here trying to get an opinion from some people that actually know what is up. Ones I have, kinda, had my eye on: kreepy krauly lil shark, the haward aqua bug, kreepy krauly easy vac, barracuda ranger. Also, more then willing to hear recommendation on ones not listed
    sharkline matrix 18x33x54
    SD80 filter
    hayward matrix 1hp 2 speed pump
    Tf-100 can't live without it

    I have had two aqua bots like Wanda and they work great on flat bottomed above ground pools. diverDan is currently cleaning my pool.

    How smooth does your liner need to be? I wasn't able to get every wrinkle out of the bottom as it filled. Will these automatic cleaners operate correctly if has a less-than-perfectly smooth surface to clean?

    I have wrinkles and rocks, it works fine. It uses little feet to walk. I have a YouTube video out there. At about the two minute mark you see the feet working.
