    Replacing Polaris 180 with ??

    Hoping for some quick advice: We've got a super OLD Polaris 180 that has finally gone to the pool cleaner farm. I'm looking to replace it but need it's replacement to be compatible with the booster and the water inlet that currently exist (there's no money for replacing the entire system...)

    The pool isn't huge -- but has some really steep walls as it transitions to the deep end that the 180 could never really get clean.

    Any suggestions??

    I have the 280 also, going on a few years now (@3-4?). Totally happy with it, have it on a timer (or a Schedule via my Suntouch) to run a 1/2 hour a day. Keep my pool 95% clean. Some of the newer Polaris cleaners have a cool looking blue and greyish body.
