How do you can install it?
You can use the universal wall fitting for the return line opening or the quick disconnect for the universal wall mounting.
To determine the length of the hose for the sweep assembly, measure the depth of the pool where the hose will be used. Then, cut the length of the hose to the desired length.
You can also adjust the length of the float hose by adding a surface module. Position the float hose near the farthest wall of the pool and make sure it's connected to the return line.
Follow the instructions in the manual to perform the installation of the pool cleaner. It provides helpful details on the operation of the machine and its various components.
What about a soft-sided Intex pools?
The Intex pool pump is not powerful enough to provide the same power as the Polaris 65 universal pool cleaner. Also, the Intex pool adapter is not compatible with the wall mounting of the Polaris 65.
And what about an inground concrete pool?
The Polaris 65 is a pressure-side pool cleaner that's made for cleaning above-ground pools. If you're looking for a more compact pool cleaner, then the Polaris Vac-Sweep 360 is a good choice.
Problems with pool liner bottom?
The surface module of the automatic pool cleaner will not float on the water as long as it's positioned on the bottom. It will not get stuck on shallow hollows or wrinkles. The jet sweep will also stir up debris that's stuck in a pool or a dip.
Which above-ground pool sizes with this device can clean?
The capacity of the pool cleaner depends on the length of its hose. For instance, it can only clean a pool with a width of 5 feet and a length of 24 feet.
The Poaris 65 is a pressure-side pool cleaner that can clean above-ground pools up to 27 feet long. It features a floating hose and a universal wall fitting.
Some owners believe that the quality has decreased over the years, and the design has also changed. This unit is also prone to getting tangled up in the pool.
It is suitable for vinyl and fiberglass pools up to 5' deep.
