The Polaris 65 Pool Cleaner is designed for use in an aboveground pool. The Polaris 65 vacuums and sweeps all surfaces, moving randomly throughout the pool. The Surface Module floats on the water's surface recirculating clean, filtered water, while the Sweep Hose and Filter Bag move across the pool floor collecting dirt and debris. This guide shows you how to maintain the Polaris 65.

Pamela - Many cleaners move in a circle because the hose has acquired a built-in curl. Try stretch the hose out on a flat surface and letting it bake for 8 hours to get the curl out. Avoid curling up the hose when you pull the cleaner out of the pool or store it.
