We have a Hayward Phantom pool cleaner that we are getting ready to replace about $200 in parts. I started wondering if it would be better to replace the Phantom cleaner with a Polaris 280 based on the reviews that I have read. I assume I can use the same booster pump as long as it is in working order.
Our pool is rectangular 15' by 35' and 5'5'' at the deepest point. We get lots of debris (leaves, acorns) in our pool in the fall, winter, and spring due to the number of trees around our pool. We have a Sta Rite System 3 DE filter and our pool is white gunite with 2 skimmers. This is not a Phantom Turbo and I am not sure how old it is or how it has been taken care of because it came with the pool when we bought our house about 5 months ago.
So, would you repair the Phantom or just buy a new Polaris 280?
