    Hayward Poolvergnuegen 2x vs. Polaris 360

    Pool cleaners overwhelm me a bit. Currently we have a Polaris 360 that we're having trouble with. It's been fine until last year. My husband's done everything to try and get it working to no avail.


    I'm researching different cleaners. When I got the 360, I did so because a friend has one and she loved it, plus it was on sale, about $100 less than it's going for now.

    At any rate, after some research, I'm weighing out the pros and cons of these two types of cleaners. We have a booster pump that we use for the 360. I wouldn't mind NOT using a booster, though, and just having something that can just run pretty much constantly, if that is an option with the Hayward. However, after reading more about suction cleaners, I'm seeing that the debris picked up goes through the skimmer line directly into the filter or basket near the filter. We have trees surrounding our pool and I'm wondering if a suction cleaner is actually a bad idea for situations like ours with the extra debris that we get.

    Thoughts/experiences?

    I bought the zodiac leaf catcher and installed between the wall and my Poolvergnuegen

    Oh very cool. And you're happy with the Poolvergnuegen? Do you leave it running pretty much all the time? It seems like a lower cost method as far as electricity goes. But do you think it cleans as well as a pressure side cleaner?

    I really like it and very happy, it does stay in my pool 24/7 when the pump runs it also runs... I am not sure if it cleans better or worse, it does not "scrub" the floor but it will suck up sand but nothing bigger than a golfball, it does leaves like crazzy, the trick is just running it, eventually it will hit the whole pool but there is no rhyme or reason it just turns and turns
