    Need replacement pressure vacuum recommendation

    Well my old faithful Polaris vacuum has bit the dust. What do you recommend for a replacement?

    It is 25,000 gallon inground plaster pool
    sort of kidney shaped, goes from 3 feet to 8 feet deep
    It is a couple ledges and steps
    It has a dedicated pump for the cleaner that is currently on the timer for 4 hours a day

    I don't really have a budget. I don't know what type of range to consider.

    Thanks for your help

    All I can add, is if you bought a robot, you would kick yourself for taking so long to get one. That's how good a job they do!!

    What is the general consensus for robot models recommendations?

    I agree,

    Replace it with a Robot cleaner, and It's Maytronics that makes the Dolphin line. Remember, you do get what you pay for so going cheap on a Robot isn't the best option. Spend as much as you can possibly afford. Top of the line residential is about $1500

    To borrow words of a wise old sage....$$$=cleaning power.
