    Welcome to TFP!!!

    ARe you looking for a suction side cleaner or a pressure side cleaner? Or what about an electric robot that operates independantly of the pool pump?

    In short there are three basic types of cleaners:

    1. Suction -- it hooks up to the suction side of your pump. Good but not very efficient. Will clean most pools just fine.

    2. Pressure side - it hooks up to a return. Some require booster pumps but with a VS pump you can probably run any without the booster pump.

    3 Robots Most efficient lowest operating cost. Most expensive to purchase.

    I have a Polaris 360 pressure side cleaner that operates all the time.

    If you don't mind placing and retrieving the robot once a week they do a great job and are least expensive to operate. Look at reviews on Amazon. There are plenty of models for all different sizes of pools.
