For the cheapest, but excellent quality, the Dolphin S200 or twins are great. Often $700 at Marina Pool & Spa. Have to order by phone. The twins are Active 20, Pentair Warrior SE and maybe one other or two. See this thread for overload...it’s a littler older thread so the version originally discussed didn’t have a swivel cord but it does now. There are numerous other threads there. Honestly no real reason to stray from a Dolphin or co-branded Dolphin.

I have same size pool and have the dolphin e10.
Works great. It's the lowest cost dolphin with an active brush.
Yes, another good cleaner. Good to hear it covers your pool size well. The main difference being the E10 is not designed to climb/clean walls or tile line as it is marketed as an above ground pool cleaner. It also has a 40' cord vs. a 60' cord and lacks the second brush (though the second brush is non-active in Dolphin lingo - meaning it spins the same speed as the robot moves). I think by default it may only come with a rough filter basket. All for more money of course!

Right on all points. To my surprise it actually does crawl up walls if they are hopper style / angled, as most inground vinyl installations have on the deep side.

Good point on the cord length. That doesn't work for everyone.
