Key Features of the Polaris Vac-Sweep 360 Pool Cleaner

Triple Jet Cleaning: This model is powered by an advanced technology which employs triple jets. This system provides enough pressure for spraying the bottom of the pool. These jets ensure that your pool floor is cleaned thoroughly. The unit connects to a pressure line as it sweeps and vacuums the pool surface. Cleaning is done automatically within a few hours. This automated and pressurized system can clean any surface including fiberglass, concrete, and vinyl.

Filter Bag: A single chamber filter bag is used to collect debris like pebbles and leaves. All material is trapped before reaching the filter thus extending the life of your filtration system.

Size and Shape Compatibility: It works in all in-ground pools with different shape and size.

Inline Valve: This backup valve frees the cleaner automatically when it has been trapped. This allows you to clean your water without disruptions. The valve is connected to the dedicated pressure line. It allows the cleaner to move in the reverse direction without interruptions.

No Booster Pump: Polaris Vac-Sweep 360 works is used to clean the in-ground pool while operating without a booster pump. This provides maximum energy efficiency. The pressure of clean water returning to the pool is used to power the cleaner. This leaves the skimmer and filter to remove contaminants. It's an improvement from the previous models in the series which use a booster pump.

Feed Hose: A 31 feet feed hose is used to facilitate movement as the cleaner captures debris. The hose is long enough to clean most in-ground pools. It can also be upgraded by adding new backup hoses. The behind features a tail sweep hose scrubber which cleans the pool from behind as the cleaner moves through the water.

Vacuum Inlet: Dirt and debris are sucked into the bag using a vacuum system. This makes sure all sizes of dirt are collected.
Wheels: The movement is enhanced by wheels. The unit features four large wheels which move the cleaner with great stability. It circulates water as it moves around the pool. This helps in aerating the water and distributing chemicals in water.

Accessories: This model comes with multiple accessories.These include a replacement eyeball, feed hose, hose floats, eyeball regulators, pressure tester, back up the valve and a head float.

Warranty: Polaris Vac-Sweep 360 comes with a limited warranty from the manufacturer. It covers all parts except the vinyl liner, all-purpose bag, hose, scrubber and wears rings.
