What is the difference between the Polaris 360 and 380?
Then, what is the difference between Polaris 280 and 360?
The main difference between the Polaris 280 vs 360, is that a Polaris 280 requires a booster pump, while the Polaris 360 can be used in pools without a booster pump. If you currently have a suction vacuum, both of these cleaners will not work unless you modify the pool equipment.
Similarly, can I use a booster pump with Polaris 360? No. The 360 is designed to work with lower pressures and higher flow rates. The booster pump puts out higher pressure and lower flow rates like the 280 and 380 require.
Simply so, how do I know if I have a Polaris 360 or 380?
The newer Polaris cleaner models have the serial number stamped on a sticker on the back of the cleaner. If the serial number starts with a “K” it will be a 380, if it starts with “C” it will be a 280, if it starts with a “L” it will be a 360.
