This cleaner really works,

Pros: Easy hook up, skimmers continue to function while cleaner is in use, dirt is trapped before it reaches the filter
Cons: The "hose nuts" are unreliable. I switched to cable ties snugged up tight.
"After having used 2 different vacuum (skimmer side) devices, I thought I'd give this a try. I had looked at robots, but didn't want to lay out $1,000 +/-.
This little bugger really works. It is fast, efficient, and leaves the skimmers undisturbed to do their work.
One suggestion: if you have a larger pool with more than one return, you will need to reduce the eyeball diameter at the return not attached to the cleaner. If you don't, too much flow is diverted away from the cleaner and it doesn't work as well. Smaller diameter eyeballs are available at any pool supply store(I switched from 1/2" to 1/4")

Pros: Very efficient, reliable, and it is a great price.
Cons: None!!!
"This was the best purchase that we have made for our pool. Our previous cleaner did not operate correctly. It had been replaced 3 times. We finally had enough. I found this site by searching on google, and it was the best thing I could have ever done! I have given this site to my pool cleaner, and he has agreed to reccommend it to all of his clients for all of their pool needs."

Pros: Works quickly
"I just installed this cleaner in my pool and within 2 hours it had everything in the bottom picked up. The pool is crystal clear. It will sure save me a lot of time and seems like it will be worth the money. Hope it continues to keep the pool as clean as it is now."

Pros: Easy hook up.
Cons: Mesh bag fills up quickly.
"I bought this around the beginning summer of 2008. I had a hard time figuring out how to hook it up, so I let my hubby figure it out. Once he got it to working, I used it all the time. The only time I used my pool vacuum is when we first opened up the pool (I didn't have the Polaris then). After I received the Polaris, I never touched my vacuum again.
I used the Polaris several times a week. We had several storms during the summer, and seemed to constantly have leaves all in the pool. The Polaris took care of that. If I had not had it, I know I would not have vacuumed my pool that much, and I would have had a mess, but Polaris kept my pool clean!
Only once did I get algae, and that's when we went on vacation. When we came back, there was quite a bit of algae in the pool. I used the Polaris and used a broom brush and got rid of all the algae.
I love my Polaris and look foward to summer now that I don't have to worry about cleaning the pool all the time, because I know all I have to do is throw in my Polaris!"

Back to what works,
Date:August 22, 2007
By Al10
Pros: No need to babysit this product just hook it up and let it run!
Cons: Decreases water pressure so heater goes off due to low water pressure.
"I used an old Polaris for ten years then when it quit I bought a "Tiger Shark" for more money than the Polaris cost. The Shark has to be babysat continually so you may as well do the work yourself since you can't leave the pool area anyway. I went back to using a Polaris because I like the water to be roiled when the filter is on and I can hook up the Polaris and walk away without worry and it will clean the pool and not get stuck on any return lines Etc. The expensive "Tiger Shark" is in the storage room gathering dust."

Great Purchase,
Date:August 22, 2007
By Hammer
Cons: Had minor problems with the hose nuts - Polaris was more than glad to replace
"This products works great! We've had several storms this season with high winds that has knocked tons of leaves and small limbs in our pool. We drop the Polaris in the pool and within a few hours the bottom is free from all debris.
I love the fact that we recieved this product within a few days of ordering from In The Swim. And, the fact that Polaris shipped replacement hose nuts and we received them within 2 days. Great service from both In The Swim and Polairs.
