    Need ideas for entry level robotic cleaner.

    I would like to purchase a robotic cleaner for my 16 x32 vinyl liner pool. I say entry level because I cant go much above $750-$800. I want a cleaner that I can maintain myself. Have used suction side cleaner for years with mixed results. I like the robotic type so I can get away from hoses and having my skimmer tied up plus I do get a few acorns and they sometimes will jam the impeller of the cleaner. Any ideas?

    The Blue Pearl gets reasonably good reviews for around $800.

    Thanks John, I noticed that the Blue pearl comes with PVA brushes. What is the difference betweeen PVA and rubber? Is one better for vinyl liners? Also, how does the Blue Pearl stack up against a standard aquabot? Thanks again for your help.
