Polaris 65 Automatic Pool Cleaner
polaris 65 durability
Expensive when you consider how long it lasts. The internal mechanism stops working properly so the cleaner won't makei t around he pool, stays in one area of pool.
Buy the 2 tear no questions asked warranty and 1 year and 10 months from now tell them it broke because if it hasn't, it propably will. Al least you'll get 2 + 2seasons for your $200 + $20.

not worth it
i've bought 2 of these polaris 65's over a 3 year period, they just quit working, will only go in one direction. also the hose on the bottom doesn't last as long as the top hose. over all i don't think it's worth what they cost.

1st one great, 2nd one not worth it
I purchased this product about 6 years ago and it worked great - 5 stars! I would leave it hooked up all week with no problems and pool maintenance was minimal. The hose from the unit to the debris bag finally gave out and is not offered as a separate item so I purchased a new unit. After 4 months, the hose on the new unit has started to disconnect from the unit causing the unit to stop moving around the pool and preventing the return of filtered/chlorinated pool water from properly circulating and requiring a lot more pool maintenance. I give the new unit 1 star rating. Overall 3 star rating as a combination of the two.

I purchased my first Polaris 65 several years ago. I would not have had to purchase another one, but I needed to replace all the hoses, etc. I thought for the price, I would just buy a complete new one. However, I found the new one does not work as well as my old one. I actually am using my old cleaner with the new hoses and it's working perfectly. I wish I would have purchased just what I needed, but you live and learn. Anyway, the old blue and yellow 65 is the best.
