How often should I run my Polaris?
Do not watch the Polaris while it is running; it will drive you crazy as it randomly picks up debris. The Polaris will generally not clean your steps. You will need to brush the steps periodically so that the debris can settle onto the floor where the Polaris can get it during its next cycle. Also, check the bag to make sure that it is securely sealed and has no holes. Otherwise, debris will continuously return to the pool after the unit has picked it up.
