I'm planning to replace an old Jandy Ray Vac with a Polaris 360. My local pool stores all have it for $549.00. I've seen it online for prices between $379.00 - $600.00. My concern is that the very low online prices are stated as new when they are really refurbished or not a complete package including hose, floats, bag, etc. or are really old as evidenced by some sellers stating that the box is a bit worn but is factory sealed and brand new. Are there issues with older models that have been corrected in more recently manufactured ones?
Does anyone recomment a particular online seller? Is there a price point I should just assume is too good to be true?
