Well my old faithful Polaris vacuum has bit the dust. What do you recommend for a replacement?

It is 25,000 gallon inground plaster pool
sort of kidney shaped, goes from 3 feet to 8 feet deep
It is a couple ledges and steps
It has a dedicated pump for the cleaner that is currently on the timer for 4 hours a day

I don't really have a budget. I don't know what type of range to consider.

Thanks for your help

Medtronics Dolphin have great reviews here, so does Hayward AquaVac

They will set u back around $1,000
I agree,

Replace it with a Robot cleaner, and It's Maytronics that makes the Dolphin line. Remember, you do get what you pay for so going cheap on a Robot isn't the best option. Spend as much as you can possibly afford. Top of the line residential is about $1500

To borrow words of a wise old sage....$$$=cleaning power.
