So, without further ado, let us introduce you to the Polaris F95550 robotic pool cleaner, which is the center of attention for this article. This is a cleaner that has managed to combine everything needed in a robotic cleaner, into one complete package.
It is an inspirational and progressive 4 wheel drive machine. The aquadynamic design has a commanding style that combines inventive engineering with programmable intelligence. It can be changed and adjusted based on the latest in artificial and mapping technology. Programming can even be done up to seven days in advance, which is a brilliant feature to have, we feel.
The F95550 will clean up everything on your pool surfaces as well as the bits in the water. It is good at climbing pool walls with a waterline cleaning mode. When the filter is full, it will let you know, and it is an easy to empty process.
The main attraction you may feel towards having a robotic cleaner is the freedom it will allow you. Once you have submerged it and let it loose in the pool the robot will go it alone, completely controlling the cleaning action itself.
The F9550 offers the latest advancements in self-programmed cleaning and self-control with the use of an unmatchable ActivMotion sensor. This is able to input to the cleaner when and where to clean within your pool. It can also control the speed of cleaning. You will even find it able to work in larger free-from pools.
Wide Mouth Intake
A nice feature that really speeds up the cleaning process is the wide mouth intake. Oscillating brushes rapidly scrub away on the pool surfaces to shift any stubborn stains and dirt. Proprietary vortex vacuum technology then allows all debris to be sucked down the extra-wide intake.
This will also cope easily with any larger bits and pieces floating about, while continually maintaining maximum suction. The force of the rear water propulsion system allows this agile cleaner to scout around under the stairs and into corners. While the wide mouth sucks more muck up faster.
Limited Downtime For Debris Disposal
Once most cleaners are full, they will just shut down without informing you. However, the F9550 comes with a filled filter indicator. This will alert you that it is, indeed full and in need of emptying. A great time saver. You see the light is flashing; you remove the easy-empty filter, shake the debris out, and then it is ready to go again.
The lid and large capacity filter canister is, as said, easy to remove, but also it eliminates the need for messy bags that can be a right pain to clean out yourself before re-installing.
Waterline Cleaning Mode
One other cool feature of the F9550 is the waterline scrub mode. Other robotic pool cleaners seem to have a hard time doing a good job on this area of a pool. Some cleaners are not able to climb the walls well enough. While others hit the waterline and the presence of oxygen tells it to return under the water.
Not so with the F9550. It comes with a special mode that tells the machine to stay and scrub the waterline. This is a venerable part of any pool in terms of cleaning as it is where the water’s surface collects and accumulates all the floating debris that then stains the sides.
Easy Lift System
One exercise you have to do manually with any pool cleaner is the raising of the machine. They can be cumbersome, heavy, and waterlogged once they have finished the pool clean. An F9550 weighs 21 lbs. This can be an awkward job, and you really do not want to damage yourself or the unit while doing so.
A nifty trick up its sleeve that Polaris has installed to the F9550 is a self-drive and drain feature. It will drive itself to the surface before then draining any water inside. This makes it much easier and a lot lighter than having to pull it up from the depths, fully laden. A grab handle is fixed to the top for a nice, simple lift out.
On purchase, you are supplied with a handy caddy. Therefore, transporting it around, to and from your pool is a breeze.
