What is the best pool cleaner?

Thumbtack Editors

If you want to get an automatic pool cleaner to supplement your regular service, your best bet might be a higher-end unit. But ultimately, the best one for you will depend on your budget and needs. 

You can choose from pressure-side pool cleaners, which can remove leaves, twigs and other objects from the bottom and sides of your pool. Or, consider a suction-side pool cleaner, which tends to be more budget-friendly. And there are robotic pool cleaners that do everything automatically. Robotic cleaners are typically the most expensive and most effective option.
