Polaris Vac-Sweep 65 6-130-00 Pressure Side Automatic Pool Cleaner

The Polaris 65 is our best above ground automatic pool cleaner. It installs in minutes and is suitable for all aboveground pools up to 5-feet deep. It loosens debris in hard-to-reach places and traps large debris, like leaves and pebbles, in its own filter bag. The Polaris Vac-Sweep® 65 is designed for all aboveground pools up to five feet deep, even those with an uneven bottom.

Can it clean a soft-sided Intex pool

No, it is not recommended. The Intex pool pump that comes with the soft-sided pool is too weak to power the Polaris 65 automatic pool cleaner. The Polaris universal wall fitting will not fit into the standard return line wall fitting of the Intex pool. You will need to find the right adapter. These two reasons are enough to avoid buying it for a soft-sided Intex swimming pool.

Will an uneven pool liner bottom cause problems

No, it will not cause a problem because the surface module floats on the surface. The jet sweep assembly and filter bag are the only parts of the pool cleaner that are close to the bottom. The automatic pool cleaner will not get stuck on wrinkles or disappear into shallow hollows. The jet sweep blows water into the attached filter bag, so it might stir up and catch debris that is stuck in a dip or a wrinkle.

Which above ground pool sizes can it clean

The maximum pool size it can clean is limited by the length of its float hose, which is 24 feet long. The pool cleaner will work at its best for pool sizes that are up to 27 feet long and 5 feet deep. Any longer or deeper than this and the hoses might not be long enough to reach and clean the whole pool. You need to buy a float hose extension kit for pools that are bigger than 30 feet.

It cleans not only the bottom of the pool but the sides as well.

With its sleek design, this is definitely among the best looking over ground pool vacuums.

Its distinctive filter bag removes debris before they reach the pump or filter, thus prolonging the life of your filtration system.

Powered by the pressure of clean water returning to your pool, leaving both the filter and skimmer free to eliminate contaminants.
