Polaris 280 Features

The two venturi jets on the Polaris 280 allow the cleaner 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 280 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.

The Polaris 280 collects, traps, and stirs up debris from the floor and walls in the pool. The Polaris 280 Pressure Pool Cleaner connects to the dedicated pressure line from the side of the pool, requiring a booster pump for operation. The Polaris 280 uses a narrow turbine, shaft drive mechanism, and idler wheel to provide forward drive to the cleaner's wheels. The cleaner goes into back-up mode every 3 minutes, pulling the Polaris 280 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 280 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 280 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.
How long is the hose that comes with the Polaris 280 Pressure Pool Cleaner?
  • The Polaris 280 comes with a 31' feed hose. All hose floats and swivels are included.
Can the feed hose be extended?
  • Yes, the hose can be extended with a section of hose, swivel, and two hose nuts.
Can the hose be trimmed shorter?
