Pretty expensive for an all plastic pool cleaner

Pros:Does great job of cleaning when it's not all tangled up in its own cord

Cons:Very expensive replacement part. Expect to spend a fortune

The Bottom Line: A good pool cleaner for the wealthy


My Polaris 360 came with the pool I bought.
I haven't had any experience with any others but my experience with the Polaris hasn't been a pleasant one.
It was a struggle keeping the sweep from getting tangled up in it's own cords. I don't know whether it needs a lot of adjustment but a pool sweep that needs a lot of attention isn't what I was looking for.
The leaf bag kept getting punctured by twigs and never lasted very long. Worst of all, was an expensive replacement...as all the plastic parts are.
The sponge tail piece also wore out quickly and had to be replaced a lot...very expensive too.
And the long hose it was connected to would spring leaks. It costs 20 dollars for a new piece of hose 3 feet long
After about 5 years the Polaris stopped sweeping at all and just laid on it's side. I think the parts wore out.
I took it in for servicing and was told it would cost 200 dollars to replace the worn out parts.
They recommended I buy a new one since they said it was old and I would probably end up having to keep replacing worn out parts...which I did...for 600 dollars.
I'm not an expert but I think Polaris must make its profits off the parts.
I should buy stock in the company
