What’s the difference between the Zodiac and Polaris constellations?
Suction-side is the way to go if you’re on a tight budget but still need an automatic cleaner. They aren’t as forceful as pressure-side cleaners, and they don’t have the high-tech features of robotic cleaners, but they will do the job.
How Suction-Side Pool Cleaners Work
The suction side of your filter system at the skimmer, or a separate suction line, is where these cleaners are connected. As your cleaner travels around your pool, it vacuums up dirt and transports it to your skimmer and filtration system. This means you’ll have less work to do, but your pool filter will have to work harder.
There are no suction-side pool cleaners available under the Polaris brand. However, Polaris’ parent business, Zodiac, makes suction-side pool cleaners, so you can expect the same high-quality service.
Note: Because a suction-side cleaner connects to your pool skimmer and causes a siphon to your filter system, it may cause harm to your filter by taking up rocks or other bigger particles.
