Default Pool cleaner options??

What pool cleaner do y’all use and do ya like it? We have an older Polaris 360 that isn’t that great, and we’re considering our options for a new cleaner. Checked out a new robotic one that the pool shop recommended..

I have the same Polaris and I am tired of it working less than half the time. Yeah it's easy to fix/repair, but dang, I spend half the time working on it. Been looking at the robotics also. Dolphin looks reasonable.

oh look...what is that?

Take it to Leslie’s and they will rebuild for the cost of parts,
If you’re interested I have a 280

280

Those robotic cleaners are great until you need to repair one

280 requires pressure pump. The 360 works off the regular pool pump.

You robitic guys, what repairs are you having to make and how often?

oh look...what is that?

Old school Polaris 360, in 9 years it’s only been in the shop twice.

Yeah, either we repair our 360 again for like the 3rd time since we’ve had it, but a new 360 or buy a robotic. The 280 would require us to buy a pump along with it and would end up costing more than just buying a robotic. Ours just doesn’t run for crap..
