If you are too lazy to clean your swimming pool manually every week or you want to make maintaining a pool easier, Polaris Vac-Sweep 280 F5 Pressure Side Automatic Pool Cleaner is the best and only pool cleaner that you will need. It is powered by double jets to scrub and sweep the side walls, bottom, and stairs of your pool. The Polaris Vac-Sweep relies on a separate booster pump for rapid cleaning power and maximum efficiency. The pool cleaner also has an easy to unload & handle bag that catches debris and dirts.
I’ve owned a Hayward pool cleaner and Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 over the past 10 years. There’s no doubt that Polaris Vac-Sweep 280 outshines the rest in terms of efficiency and simplicity to use. Once the pool cleaner is adjusted to your pool with the appropriate pressure set, it cleans the pool well automatically. It is easy to setup and you just have to unload the bag to remove the dirts and debris, with minimum maintenance required.
If you don’t want to clean the bag, you can try to put a 10-12 inches nylon sock over the exit to replace the bag and change the sock every 1 month. It’s very convenient and the socks are very cheap (half dozen for $1.00 only). When you first bought the Polaris Vac-Sweep, do note the the hose length is important as it will not work properly if the hose is too long. Besides, if the Polaris 280′s tail is shooting water out of the swimming pool, you should add the Polaris Tail Sweep Accessory to keep the tail down.
In short, Polaris Vac-Sweep 280 Automatic In-Ground Pool Cleaner is the best automatic pool cleaner by far. It is simple to use, very efficient, and easy to maintain. Pool boy and manual cleaning are no longer needed with this robot!
