Not what it seems
Contrary to what you might think from its appearance or read in other reviews, this cleaner does nothing to clean the surface. It only collects large debris on the pool bottom and not evenly. It has a hard time with corners at the bottom. It does mix up the fine silt so it can be pulled into your filter to be cleaned, but does nothing to remove it.

In the beginning it works great, except won't clean near the ladder so all the leaves and debree stays on the left side of the pool in the deep part around the ladder area. The hoses seem to get a split. It starts to get sluggish even after the filer has been back washed. I've had a couple other pool cleaners that work thru the skimmer, don't like them because of the leaves that don't get skimmed. so I keep buying this type of cleaner.

We love it!
We are very happy with the polaris. It is our first sweep and we didn't know what to expect but it does a really good job of trapping the debris floating in the water and the bottom (not just the top like we expected) from the look of it. We used it everyday for the entire summer and it was still going strong by the end. The only semi-neg's are that the hose that comes with it is a bit short for an avg length pool and the connection to the filter outlet could be easier to secure/and keep tightly fitted (when it's not water shoots out and the sweep loses a lot of power).
