Polaris pool cleaners have been on the market for years, one reason why they’re such a popular, trusted brand among pool owners. Polaris is part of Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc., a brand that has had years of experience to develop and perfect their swimming pool cleaning equipment. The Polaris pool cleaners were developed before the idea of not using a booster pump was even conceived of. For this reason, many cleaners from Polaris are more basic, and will run off a separate booster pump.Don’t let this minor functionality hold you back from these workhorse cleaners—the basic, sturdy design makes them one of the most reliable cleaners in the industry. The booster pumps from Polaris have been redesigned for efficiency and quiet operation. If you want something more advanced that can work unsupervised, Polaris has robotic pool cleaners available too. The robotic cleaners feature programmable cleaning timers, handheld remotes, and dual cleaning cycles.
