It's hard to go wrong with a Polaris vacuum. You can find used ones on eBay or on Craig's List. Depending on your pool size (if you need a more powerful unit), you can buy a cheap small one like the 180 and trade it in to Polaris for a larger 380 model.

There are other brands that are reliable, too, but I only have personal experience with the Polaris line.

Hope this helps
