Table of Contents
Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 comes with a great ability to move through water and clean both the walls and the floor. This is made possible by its climbing ability and the presence of a backup valve that helps it move backward once it gets stuck in the water. These features make it suitable for cleaning pools of all shapes, sizes and materials.
To use this product, you will need a booster pump which is bought separately from the unit. The product is shipped either in black or white and includes a 31-foot hose. The manufacturer says that it can completely clean a dirty pool in a maximum of three hours.
Below, we are going to review this product by looking at its specifications, strong features and weaknesses to help you determine whether the product meets your pool cleaning needs or not.
To efficiently clean out pools, the Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 is loaded with different features. These are:
A large filter bag
The Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 comes with a large filtering bag that is very efficient at keeping dirt and debris at bay. The good thing with this bag is that it is large enough and therefore, does a good job at holding dirt through the cleaning process. This makes work easier for those working on large swimming pools. The bag also prevents dirt from getting into the filter system thereby increasing the life of the unit.
Efficient belt driven system
The machine moves seamlessly in the water thanks to its efficient belt system. This system is loved by many as it is simple and very efficient. The belt system is also easy to replace. A good way to tell that the belt is broken is when the unit stops moving.
Luckily, you get a one year warranty on the belt as well as two-year warranty on the heat pump and robotic cleaners. This can help cut on costs should the unit break down within the stated warranties.
The Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 requires a booster pump to easily move through the pool. This is because the filter system on the unit does not provide enough pressure to propel the unit through water. If you have a very large pool therefore, you need to buy an additional booster pump as it does not come with the package.
In-line back up-valve
Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 has a very efficient back-up valve that enables the unit to back out when stuck in really tight corners. The valve is automatic and reverses the unit every three minutes to ensure that it does not concentrate only on one area of the pool.
- Large debris bag that is easy to use and detach.
- Large throat that enables it to take large pieces of debris such as stones and leaves.
- The filter bag protects debris from getting into the filtration system. This prolongs the life of the unit.
- Very easy to assemble and replace worn out parts.
- Can clean both walls and floor of the pool
- Fast cleaner that completes the job in less than three hours
- Readily available accessories and parts.
- Requires a booster pump to function well
- Hard to clean pool steps
Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 is a high-quality product that will ensure that your pool is clean within a short period of time. However, the equipment requires an additional booster pump to move around your pool. Fortunately, you can easily purchase the pump and enjoy the full benefits of the system.
If you are shopping for an affordable but powerful pool cleaner, the Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 fits the bill. It will deliver great service for a very long time
