Robot cleaner recommendation for a small inground pool

Hello everyone,
I'm looking for recommendations on a 'small' robot cleaner for my pool.
I have a custom concrete pool, 24' x 24' in the shape of a right angle triangle, approx volume of 50,000L (13,000 gallons). No fancy features/obstacles except stairs at the entrance. The pump/filter setup is pretty simple, I have a Pentair VS pump and accompanying sand filter connected to a single skimmer and 3 return jets.
I am surrounded by maple trees, so the potential future robot should be able to handle a bit of 'tree debris/leaves' without malfunctioning.

I have looked at some of the best-rated cleaners (Nautulis Dolphin, Hayward TigerShark, etc.) but they all seem quite large since my pool is kind of small.

I would appreciate if anyone in their experience has any recommendations for me. Thank you in advance.

Best option is manual cleaning, save a load in purchase costs over a robot and running costs and manual is quicker and more thorough, you won't miss bits!
