My wife and I are starting to build out plans for a new house and pool. I'm getting a list together of all the equipment I'm going to need. We have a pool currently with a Polaris 380, and it's the only cleaner I've ever owned. It does an ok job, but it's constantly getting tangled, breaking, and generally seems to work sub-optimally.
1. Should I definitely go with a pressure-side cleaner? Suction-side seems cheaper, but they also seem like they might (ahem) suck.
2. Any recommendations on which one to buy?
I should mention that I'm looking for the best performance for the price, not necessarily the Rolls Royce of the pool cleaner world. I'm willing to spend more than what the 380 costs, but I don't really want to spend $2k.
