Polaris Vac-Sweep 380
Most Powerful, Durable Pressure Pool Cleaner
Powered by triple jets and a separate booster pump, the Polaris 380 is one of our most powerful, durable cleaners and is suitable for all in-ground pools.
The Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 pressure cleaner works in all in-ground pools, and requires a booster pump. It features an all-wheel, belt drive mechanism that provides greater vacuum power and faster cleaning (3 hours or less). Powered by triple jets, the Polaris 380 sweeps, scrubs and vacuums the bottom, walls and steps of the pool and holds debris in its single chamber filter bag. Its unique filter bag removes debris before it reaches your pump basket or filter, prolonging the life of your filtration system.

Polaris Vac-Sweep 380 Frequently asked questions
Verify the wheel RPM's are in range. If they are low or the wheels are not spinning then check the in-line filter for debris. If clear and the wheels still aren't spinning then check the water management system for clogs. If the RPM's are slightly below the prescribed range then remove the restrictor disc from the wall connector. If the wheels are moving too quickly then install the red restrictor disc.
Verify that the wheel RPM's are in the correct range and adjust the thrust jet. If the cleaner isn't climbing well then ensure the thrust jet is in the 11 o'clock position. If it is going in circles then angle the thrust jet so it is pointing opposite of the way the cleaner is turning. For example, if the cleaner is turning right then point the thrust jet to the left.
Check swivels and make sure they are spinning freely. Lay the hose out in the sun for 24 hours to eliminate any potential hose memory.
Hold the back up valve out of the water and verify that it cycles on and off. A complete cycle takes about three minutes. If it stays on all the time or doesn't come on at all then replace the back up valve.
Verify the wheel RPM's are in range. Ensure that the head float is not filled with water. Try running the cleaner without the bag and if it fixes the issue then clean the bag with soap and warm water. This will remove any biofilm/oils that may have accumulated in the bag.
- Empty the filter bag. A full bag can weigh the cleaner down on one side.
- Remove the head float and shake it. If there is water in the float, replace it.
- Check the hose floats to make sure they are spaced evenly.
