Polaris 65 Pressure Side Pool Cleaner Review – Vac Sweep

These are known for their top quality engineering and sturdy constructions and this automatic pool cleaner clearly proves this right. It is a pressure side pool cleaner that uses Jet Sweep assembly to immaculately clean the bottom and sides of your pool. Though it is meant for above ground pools up to five feet deep, it can also work for inground vinyl or fiberglass pools. It is easy to install as it does not require booster pump which only increases the cost of a pool cleaner.

Final Verdict

I would not hesitate to recommend it to people who have 5 feet deep above ground pools. The Polaris above ground automatic pool cleaner does exactly what it is made for, cleaning perfectly. The one thing that makes it shine out is the Jet Sweep assembly. The unit floats on the surface of your pool and its filter bag travels at the bottom of the pool vacuuming and sweeping the bottom. The easy installation is a feather in its cap since you just need to attach the pool cleaner to the return line and let it do the cleaning floating silently on your pool’s surface. On the top of that, the owner’s manual will guide you through troubleshooting, if it hits a snag.
