We’ve compiled a list of the features that the Polaris Vac-Sweep can provide you with.

Below are some of the features that the Polaris Vac-Sweep can offer. There are also some key factors to consider when choosing a pool cleaner.


Booster Pump

A booster pump is a small pump that’s used to increase the pressure of your pool cleaner. It works by pushing the cleaner around to provide a more thorough cleaning.

Booster pumps have various positive and negative features. The biggest benefit is that they provide more power, allowing for faster and easier cleaning. However, they also have parts that can potentially break, which means that your pool cleaner could be lost.


Pool Compatibility

Having the proper size and shape of your pool are important considerations when it comes to choosing an autonomous pool cleaner. Also, make sure to consider the time it will take to clean and the device’s monitoring features.

The Polaris 280 is an in-ground pool pump that works in all in-ground pools. It features a 31ft hose that fits most pool sizes.



One of the main reasons why the Polaris 280 is so popular is due to its ability to quickly clean a pool with its double Venturi jets.



The Polaris 280 is a very easy to maintain pool cleaner that comes with a variety of replacement parts that are usually cheaper than the original ones.

Pressure cleaners are usually energy-consuming and require a large amount of energy to perform their high-quality cleaning.


Time Constraints

If your pool doesn’t use much then a pressure pool cleaner is probably not for you. However, if you value your time and are looking for an easy and quick way to maintain your pool then a pressure cleaner is definitely what you need.


Suction Power

When your pool is surrounded by large pieces of debris such as fallen leaves and trees, then a pressure cleaner will be more effective than a vacuum cleaner. This is because the pressure that's delivered by the hose and the inlet and the debris bag will help remove the debris effectively.


Should You Buy This Pool Cleaner?

On the other hand, if your pool is on the smaller side, then you will most likely find bigger debris at the bottom. This unit is designed to remove these types of debris in under 3 hours.
