Polaris F9550 Review
You can find all the major highlights of this inground pool cleaner below.
ActivMotion Sensor: Gives You Freedom
The one highlight of a robot pool cleaner is the freedom it provides the user. We found it easy to set this unit loose and leave it to do its magic thanks to the ActivMotion sensor.
One incredible thing that enabled this freedom is the Al and mapping technology of the cleaner. It quickly hit all the pool’s spots and corners without missing any dirt.
Besides, the model comes with the latest self-programming and self-control to guarantee minimal supervision. What ActivMotion sensor technology does is notify the cleaner when to clean and at what speed.
Easy Lift System: Easy to Remove from the Pool
One challenging part of using any pool cleaner is getting it out of the water. It can be heavy when logged with water, it requires you to bend over, and you need to use force to pull it out.
We found the Polaris F9550 to be easy to remove thanks to the lift system. But that is not the main thing because the robot drives itself to the surface, where it drains the water.
You get the simple task of pulling the cleaner without the added water weight. And that is not all; the cleaner has a handle that lets you grab it with ease when lifting.
It is a comfortable handle that enables the users to wrap their hands around and avoid bending. Another astonishing thing is the handy caddy that you can use to move your cleaner around.
That adds to the convenience of moving your robotic pool cleaner from the water.
Simple Debris Disposal: Minimal Downtime
Some pool cleaners shut off when full of trash without notifying the owner they need to be emptied. We found a useful feature in the Polaris F9550 that alerts you when full – filter indicator.
It is a simple filter indicator that will notify you when the filter is full, and that can save you valuable time. What more, the machine provides an easy-empty feature to give you effective emptying without using energy.
The light goes on, you take out the filter, shake it several times to release the trash, and then attach it. You are assured of having minimal downtime and more time for removing the debris and sand from the bottom of your inground pool.
Wide-Mouth Intake: Collects Large Debris
Grid of sand or leaves of grass, it does not matter when it comes to Polaris F9950. We found the intake mount to be wide enough to collect every dirt, stone, debris, and more.
The system sweeps every material to remove the need to choose which material to collect or leave. And that is just the beginning because the cleaner offers a powerful suction to drive even the heavy material towards the mouth.
The cleaning system is further improved by the internal systems that can ensure every material is collected.
Waterline Cleaning Mode: Whole Pool Cleaning
One major problem of pool cleaner is they fail to clean the waterline. That means you get a clean pool at the bottom, but the waterline remains with bugs and leaves.
It is not the case with Polaris F9550 because it removes all the trash from your pool, including the waterline. It climbs up the wall with ease to do a thorough cleaning.
The reason behind that is the particular mode that enables it to reach the waterline with ease. You can bet that all the light materials accumulated on the surface get to the pool cleaner and are removed from your pool.
