Good job, Polaris 280
Does a good job cleaning my pool. Just wish there was a disconnect or turn off valve on the hose, so I wouldnt have to get down on hands and knees to disconnect from the wall. You have to disconnect or the water spurts out when pulling the Polaris out of the pool for cleaning bag or taking it out while adding chemicals to pool or because the kids are swimming.

Bloom is off the rose
This is my 3rd Polaris pool sweep. The others lasted 5 years each. This one made it 60 days and has internal gear breakage. Dealer won't help and Polaris is being difficult. Not happy.

Polaris makes a great product. The only issue I have has been the hose connections get loose.

Crazy tail on this model!

Works well but the tail whips out of the water on occasion and sprays my windows! :( With a saltwater pool, it leaves a lot of water droplets. Not sure though that there is a way to correct that problem.

Same model; bad results

This is our second same model product. The first was wonderful: a 5-star. We even named her 'Dory'. So, after 4 years of service, I though a replacement would be better than an overhaul. Our new Dory lays on her side most of the time while swanning around the pool, and routinely gets stuck in the same corner. She does not work well at all. So disappointing. How could two identical products perform so differently?
