Polaris 360 Features

The Polaris 360 has three venturi jets in its throat that create suction under the unit to easily maneuver around the pool floor and walls for a swift and effective clean. The iconic 3-wheel design provides the cleaner with the ability to effortlessly navigate around obstacles and covering all angles of the pool. The Polaris 360 provides longer filter cycles with its all-purpose filter bag capturing small to medium-sized debris such as pebbles, acorns, and leaves. Debris is captured before it reaches the pump basket or pool filter, helping prolong the life of the pool’s filtration system.

Sweeps, Scrubs, Vacuums Pool Walls & Bottom

The Polaris 360 collects traps and stirs up debris from the floor and walls in the pool. The Polaris 360 Pressure Pool Cleaner connects to a return pressure line via the universal wall connect. Pressure provided by the main circulation pump hits a large turbine, spinning a series of reduction gears and belts to provide forward drive to the cleaner. The Polaris 360 uses an All-Wheel Belt Drive to propel itself around the pool and up and around obstacles in its path. The cleaner goes into back-up mode every 3 minutes, pulling the Polaris 360 away from obstacles increasing its randomized cleaning pattern. The sweep hose with tail scrubber helps to loosen dirt in difficult, hard to reach areas, leaving you with a complete clean.

Common Questions:

Polaris 360 does not climb and or goes in circles

  • Please verify the wheel RPM’s are in the correct range and adjust the thrust jet. If the cleaner is not climbing well, then ensure the thrust jet is in the 11 o’clock position. If the cleaner is going in circles, then angle the thrust jet so it is pointing opposite of the way the cleaner is turning. For example, if the cleaner is turning to the right, then point the thrust jet to the left.

Polaris 360 does not clean the entire pool

  • Verify that the feed hose reaches within 6 inches of the farthest point of the pool. If not, order a new hose section.
  • Check the thrust jet for the straight back position that optimizes random turning.
  • While the cleaner is operating, hold it upside down and look into the vacuum tube. There should be two distinct, even jets of water. If there are not, contact Polaris customer service for assistance.
