    cant decide on automatic pool cleaner

    i need to replace an old kreepy krawly thats on the suction side... but i cant decide what to get?

    seems there's good amount of leaves falling in the fall/winter (about 1 pound a week i collected), no rocks, but have some small seed things (quarter inch wide)
    my pump is 2hp fixed speed
    pool is about 30x20 ft, ?5ft deep

    i like the look of a brush like cleaner one but they're all kinda mixed reviews/i cant really tell based on online reviews... as far as reliability and repairs
    i think i would spend <400 for it
    (i dont like the classic kreepykrawly look but if you think its best...)

    Hi Zac,

    There are quite a few folks on the forum who have and would highly recommend ThePoolCleaner.
    It seems to be the best of the suction side cleaners.

    Here is a thread similar to yours.

    Zac, it will work just fine with a VS pump. You will just have to find the RPM sweet spot where the cleaner works best.
