Polaris, a top brand in automatic pool cleaning, is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
A division of Fluidra, Polaris, which is credited with inventing the first automatic pool cleaner, introduced the pressure-side cleaner to the market in 1973. Since then, Polaris continues to focus on developing smarter solutions that deliver more effective and efficient cleaning in every category — robotic, suction and pressure.
As a trusted brand, Polaris develops many innovative products for its robotic pool cleaner lineup. Some of these technologies include remote-operated cleaners, app-enabled control and a SMART Cycle cleaning mode that allows the cleaner to optimize its patterns for a pool’s shape, size and surface material. Last year, the brand launched its first commercial robotic cleaner line, the VORTRAX series, designed with cutting-edge cleaning capabilities to cater to the demands of high-use pools.
“We’re proud of the role that Polaris has played in advancing pool cleaning technology over the past 50 years,” says Skye Svenningsen, director of product marketing for automatic pool cleaners. “Our commitment to innovation has enabled us to bring new solutions to market that make pool maintenance more efficient, convenient and accessible while also providing customers with the highest levels of performance possible. We are looking forward to continuing that journey with more ground-breaking products over the next 50 years.”
