The Polaris 280 is our most popular automatic pool cleaner. The Polaris Vac-Sweep 280 is designed for all in-ground pools and runs off a booster pump.
The dependable Polaris 280 easily connects to a dedicated pressure line. Powered by double jets that provide greater vacuum power, and with a separate booster pump, it sweeps, scrubs, and vacuums the bottom, walls, and steps of the pool in 3 hours pr less. It also traps large debris like leaves and pebbles in its own filter bag.
Running off of a separate booster pump, working independently from the rest of your pool system, the unique filter bag removes debris before it reaches your pump basket or filter, prolonging the life of your filtration system.
*Requires booster pump to operate. Booster pump sold separately.

Switched from an expensive Hayward Phantom to this as it was recommended by my pool store since I had to replace mine. I am sooooo happy!
I replaced an older model Polaris and the new net is much easlier to get off and on. Cleans my 20x40 pool in under 2 hours.
I have had 2 Mod 360 in the past and went to a Hayward Phantom. BIG MISTAKE. When it worked it was better that a Polaris. When it broke down (ei. leaking swivels stuck manifold broken hose etc.) break out your wallet. What a maintenance nightmare. By the recommendations of friends and sales personnel I went to the Polaris 280. So far very satisfide.
I DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING IT JUST RUNS ON ITS OWN. DOESN'T GET TANGLED LIKE MY LAST ONE
