    Considering a Polaris 280. How does the black in Black Max hold up??

    Hey Guys,

    Pool #3 being built. Wifey wants a darker liner this time, and i was thinking about a Polaris 280 black max.
    Had 280s on both previous pools and i like em.
    Wondering if the black will fade as most other things do...........

    Buy a robot. There are losts of them out there. They clean better and you don't need the pump (any pump ) to run it so they are much cheaper to run.

    I had a Polaris 360 in black. It looked fine in the water but when pulled out and dried the black was quite faded. I wouldn't get another black one though simply because the replacement parts in black were several times more expensive than the white.

    I am just having to replace my 4 year old 280 black max. It did a good job, but just had a wheel snap off (not in a fixable way). The base was faded to a light gray. The wheels were still black, and the rest was faded a bit. The bag had recently been replaced.
