The guy I got my pool from got me a Polaris 65 that he owed me and hooked it up yesterday.
I was skeptical at first as I did not see the net actually scrape along the bottom constantly. But I came back about an hour or so later and it was half full of junk!!!! My water is crystal clear and I knew there some stuff on the bottom as I haven't had a means to vacuum in 3 weeks since it's been up, but wow, it really worked.
The only thing it didn't get is some sand I blew in the pool before I knew the proper way to backwash
But the main questions... how often do you run the Polaris in your pool? It's a lot heavier than I expected. I unhooked it when the kids wanted to get in yesterday evening, and it was pretty awkward pulling all the hose and unit over the side and finding a place to store it. It picked up mud from dragging on the ground some.
The owners manual says not to leave in direct sunlight. So does that mean don't run it during the day?
Where do you place all the hose and unit when not in use? I mean do you have it easily available to use every day or do you just use it less often? I don't have nearby trees so I don't have a whole lot of stuff getting in the pool.
