    Need a recommendation for an automatic pool cleaner.

    I guess my question is similar to many others. I am tried of fighting with my MX8 and ready to switch to an automatic cleaner. My pool is a free form about 40 x 20. Deep end is about 8ft. I've been eyeing Polaris 9550. One feature that was appealing to me is the remote control. what drives me crazy the most is that MX8 will leave debris in some areas and will never have a completely clean pool.

    does anyone have experience with Polaris cleaners? any experience with this model? is it worth the cost?

    The pool was repiped and new equipment installed Nov 2013.

    I ordered a polaris 9550 today,from Pool Supply World. They have the best price, and it has a 2 year warranty. Comes with a caddy and motion sensing remote for $1149.00

    I dont have a Polaris, but my friends do. He loves the thing. He has had it for 3 years and had a couple of minor issues.
    First one what one of the wheels fell off. He took it the pool store he bought it from and its an easy fix.
    Second one I dont remember what it was, but was also very minor.

    Thanks Schumaker for the rebate info. If you read the fine print the rebate doesn't include the newer robots. It is very misleading advertising. I think Polaris wants to get rid of their older models, thus the rebate.
