    Have Polaris 380. Looking for something better

    Looking to get my pool resurfaced and some other work done. I have a Polaris 380 and I am sick of it. I have rebuilt it completely probably 3 times. Is there something out there that is better? I was looking at the robots but I don't think it is conducive to my schedule - dragging it out everytime I need to use it. My neighbors trees are always dumping something in my pool.

    Thanks!

    Robots can be left in the pool on a weekly basis. I just got an S300i (Dolphin) and it has a weekly timer option. You just have to be a little more diligent about pulling it out and hosing it down from time to time. I got away from a pump driven cleaner (Pentair Kreepy Krawly suction cleaner) and I couldn't be happier. Saving money too on the lower pump speeds.

    I love my Doheny's Discovery Robot. It has a weekly timer. It can run daily, 2x/wk or 3x/wk and then it shuts off. More about my robot in my pool thread, link in sig. Also, more about it here, First Robotic Cleaner, Doheny's Discovery
