I had a phantom pressure cleaner. I want to replace this pressure cleaner as I have the in wall hookup of an Inground vinyl pool. 18 by 32. Any suggestion for a pressure cleaner which will hook up easily? Thank you

A  Answered on 6/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Kathy, We would suggest the Polaris 380 Pressure Cleaner as a good solid pressure side cleaner. For a vinyl liner pool we would recommend purchasing three of the Polaris Posi Trax Tires as they do a great job with vinyl liner pools.
