    Not sure if it plays well in an AG pool...I'm pretty happy with my polaris380. You may want to consider robots as well.

    We have had an Aquabot Hornet (purchased at American Sales) for ~2yrs. Same as the Rover Jr.
    Seems to do an adequate job, especially with the 'larger' things (leaves, bugs). Sometimes will get stuck near the steps and need a quick tug to get it moving.
    I still have to manually vacuum at least every other week but, the robot is nice for those times when a big storm will put a heavier amount of debris in the pool.

    Best of luck in finding what works well for you.
