      The Polaris 165 pool cleaner was manufactured specifically for use in pools with vinyl or fiberglass surfaces. Because the Polaris 165 automatic pool cleaner for in-ground pools is connected to your pool's pump and filtration system, this cleaner installs in minutes so you can start cleaning your pool immediately. More importantly, using its patented jet sweep system the Polaris 165 pool cleaner cleans even the most difficult areas of your pool and even with pools that have uneven surfaces. Plus, the Polaris 165 automatic in-ground pool cleaner features its own filter bag so that you never have to worry about debris from your pool clogging your pump basket or filter.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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).

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Polaris Overall I like the polaris. This is the first year for our 20x40 inground pool. We had quite a lot of leaves in it when we opened the pool in the spring and the polaris was great for getting them out. Just plug it in and let it go to work!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money I have a 18 X 32 IG Grecian style pool. I had a polaris 360 for about 3 years until it broke down. A friend recommended the 165 to me so I thought I would give it a try since its cheaper and see how it works. I have used it this whole season and it has done fairly well. The assembly was easy to do in less than 30 minutes. The only tool you need is a knife to cut the hose. The hose comes coiled up and tries to stay that way in the pool. So lay it strait on concrete in the hot sun for a day to help get the coil out of it. The 165 cleans fairly well. Not quite as efficient as the 360. It seems to want to get in the deep end and not get back out so you have to go outside and pull the cleaner to the area of the pool you want it to clean and hope it stays there. The bag gets about anything and the tail has jets that stir up silt to help the pool stay clean. Like all polaris cleaners of this type there is a little filter where the hose attaches to the wall that needs to be cleaned out once a week or so. If your cleaner looks sluggish that filter probably needs cleaning, which is quick and easy. Overall not as fast at cleaning as the 360, but cheaper and hopefully more reliable. My friend had his 165 for many years. If you dont mind babysitting it a little bit then you will probably be happy with the 165. Also with a flat bottom round type pool it would probably not need any babysitting at all.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from works okay 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.

      Technical Specifications:

    • The Polaris Vac-Sweep® 165 is designed for any vinyl or fiberglass in-ground pool, even those with an uneven bottom up to eight feet deep.
    • Installs in minutes - this pool vacuum connects to the return line. Operates with pumps and filtration systems normally found on in-ground pools. Vacuums the bottom and sweeps the sides in three hours or less.
    • Patented jet sweep assembly blows water against the pool wall to loosen debris in hard-to-reach places and then sweeps it into an easy-to-remove filter bag.
    • Powered by the pressure of clean water returning to your pool, leaving both the filter and skimmer free to eliminate contaminants.
    • Unique filter bag removes debris before it reaches your pump basket or filter, prolonging the life of your filtration system.


    • Can the Polaris 165 clean dished out pools?
      – Yes! The Polaris 165 is designed for any vinyl or fiberglass in-ground pool, even those with an uneven bottom up to eight feet deep.

      How long will it take to clean my pool?
      – Installs in minutes. Operates with pumps and filtration systems normally found on aboveground pools and vacuums the bottom and sweeps the sides in three hours or less.

      I have an area of my pool that is hard for most cleaners to reach. Will the Polaris 165 work for me?
      – Patented jet sweep assembly blows water against the pool wall to loosen debris in hard-to-reach places and then sweeps it into an easy-to-remove filter bag.

      Does the Polaris 165 prolong the life of my filter system?
      – The unique filter bag removes debris before it reaches your pump basket or filter, therefore it does prolong the life of the filter system.

      Can I swim while the cleaner is working?
      – NO! All swimmers need to be removed from the pool before starting the Polaris 165 and never handle the cleaner while it is working.

      What kind of technical support does Polaris offer?
      – For on-line support: www.polarispool.com or call 1-800-822-7933.

      Troubleshooting:

    • Polaris does not clean the entire pool or runs slowly

    • 1. Verify that the pressure relief valve is releasing water. If it is not, clean or backwash the pool filter.
      2. Check the filter screen in the quick disconnect and clean if necessary.
      3. Verify that the float hose is the proper length.
      4. Remove the surface module top. With the Polaris operating, verify that the randomizer tube is moving back and forth. If it is not moving: Turn off pump, disconnect hoses, look into the mechanism and locate the filter connector inside the randomizer tube. If it is covered with debris or algae, remove the connector chamber, cylinder, and piston. Pull out the randomizer tube and clean the filter connector. If the connector is clean, replace the piston. If it is moving: Watch the randomizer ball in the mechanism. If it does not move within 2 minutes, replace the randomizer tube and piston.
      5. Verify that the water pressure is between 5 and 10 psi.

    • Surface module dives under the water or leans to one side.

    • 1. Straighten twisted hoses.
      2. Lift surface module out of the water, empty it and then shake it. If water is still heard inside, remove the top, pull out the drain plug assembly and drain the module.
      3. Adjust the pressure relief valve until the surface module levels off.
      4. Verify that the water pressure is between 5 and 10 psi.

    • The float hose remains coiled.

    • 1. See "Polaris does not clean entire pool."
      2. Lay the float hose out straight in the sun to remove the coils.

    • Surface module moves too fast.

    • 1. Adjust the pressure relief valve until the surface module slows down.
      2. Remove one of the eyeball regulators and readjust the pressure relief valve if necessary.
      3. Verify that the water pressure is between 5 and 10 psi.

    • Bag does not stay on the pool floor.

    • 1. Verify that the bag has been installed correctly.
      2. Check for air bubbles around the jet body assembly. This may indicate air in the plumbing lines.
      3. See "Surface module moves too fast."
