Product Description


It’s based on a love/hate relationship: the more you hate pool cleaning, the more you’ll love this pool cleaner.

The Polaris 280 runs off its own booster pump, working independently from the rest of your pool system. It enables the 280’s double jets to provide greater vacuum power and faster cleaning.

The 280 vacuums, sweeps and scrubs the bottom and walls of any size or shape in-ground pool, be it gunite, fiberglass or vinyl. The extra large bottom opening picks up large debris like leaves, acorns and pebbles.

The Polaris 280 is covered by the Polaris 5/2 limited warranty (when registered) with over one thousand warranty service centers to give you assistance. There is also a Polaris Black Max, a black model of the 280 for dark-bottom pools.

What is a booster pump, and where does it attach to?

A  Answered on 4/12/2009 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This cleaner is designated as a pressure side cleaner which means:Pressure Pool Cleaners most pressure cleaners require a booster pump which is typically a ¾ horse power pump that is dedicated for use with the cleaner alone. The booster pump allows you to operate the pressure cleaner without taking any suction away from your main pool pump. The addition of the booster pump does mean pressure cleaners require a more involved installation than either suction or robotic cleaners. The booster pump is installed in tandem with your pool pump.

How much is the Black color ? What's the differ in the 380 ?

A  Answered on 1/7/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Charlie R.

Joe,The Polaris Black Max is 679.00 with free shipping. The differences between the 280 and the 380 is the 380 version has 3 jets, as opposed to 2, which allows for faster cleaning cycles. However, the 380 will have higher upfront and maintenance costs because it does have more moving parts and a smaller filter bag. Both are a great reputation for longevity and durability.
