Choosing a Pool Cleaner

Automatic pool cleaners such as the Polaris Vac Sweep are an excellent addition to any pool, but it is important to match the right pool cleaner to your pool.  

Click on the situation that best describes your pool:

My pool already has a BOOSTER PUMP such as a Polaris PB-4 or a Letro Booster Pump.

Not sure if you have a booster pump?

Check by the equipment and see if you have a separate poolsweep booster pump.  It often looks like this one and does not have a trap basket like the pool pump does.  Older booster pumps may be vertically mounted rather than horizontal.  Click here for an illustration of a booster pump line.

My pool does not have a booster pump but does have a DEDICATED PRESSURE LINE in the pool.

What is a dedicated pressure line?

NOTE:  A dedicated pressure line is a pipe that runs from the equipment area to the pool to deliver pressure to the cleaner.  It delivers water pressure to the cleaner to power it.  A dedicated line on the suction side is one that operates under suction.  It delivers suction to the cleaner to operate it.  Click here for an illustration of a dedicated pressure line.

My pool does not have a booster pump but does have a DEDICATED SUCTION LINE in the pool.

What is a dedicated suction line?

NOTE:  A dedicated suction line is a pipe that runs from the equipment area to the pool to deliver suction to the cleaner.  The suction causes the cleaner to move around the pool and it also sucks in the debris off the bottom.   Click here for an illustration of a dedicated suction line.

My pool has NO BOOSTER PUMP OR DEDICATED POOLSWEEP LINE in the pool.
