Polaris has always been a top robotic pool cleaner manufacturer. Since their parent company, Fluidra acquired Aqua Products (Better known as Aquabot) I have been waiting for a merging of the two techs into one superior robotic pool cleaner. The Epic line of cleaner is surely this. Compact, powerful, and super smart, these cleaners are part of the next generation of Polaris cleaners.
There are 3 models with the Epic 8642 iQ being the top-of-the-line model. It features in-app control and if your budget allows this would be the model of choice. The compact size can be deceptive as this cleaner really is a workhorse and is suitable for larger pools. I also like the included transport and storage caddy.
About the Epic 8642 iQ from Polaris:
Power, Agility, and Convenient Control
Why wait around for your pool cleaner at home when you can clean your pool regardless of where you are… With the convenience of iAquaLink® app control for on-the-go cleaning and remote control capabilities, the Polaris EPIC 8642 iQ offers enhanced maneuverability with a tighter turn radius and greater agility to propel the cleaner up walls and over obstacles. A new advanced Double Helix brush design helps channel dirt toward the inlet for superior debris collection as it scrubs your pool’s floor, walls, and waterline while powerful cyclonic vacuum technology enables the cleaner to maintain strong suction for thoroughly outstanding results. Equipped with hassle-free features that make maintenance easy, the Polaris EPIC 8642 iQ is a robust robotic cleaner that gets the job done.

Tips on Maintaining Your In Ground Pool
The thrill of a new pool may become overshadowed by the realization that it has to be kept up by someone. Just like a pet or family member, the pool must be addressed as the need arises. You can’t simply wait until it is convenient to perform pool maintenance. So, here are some tips on Maintaining Your In Ground Pool.How To Install A Pool Pump
The plumbing configuration that you use to install your pool pump will depend on whether you are installing the pump above or below grade. By using the correct types of valves you can protect the pump against damage during power outages as well as making the priming process much easier.Steps To Take For Purchasing A Hot Tub
Many people consider purchasing hot tubs and spas for therapeutic purposes, but before you sign the papers, you need to consider a few things. First thing you need to do is call an electrician out to your house to see if your electrical panel can accept the increased load. Depending on which model you are looking at, some run on 115 volts and some need to be hard wired for 230 volts. If your panel cannot supply the needed power, now would be the time to talk to the electrician about upgrading your breaker panel.Uses for Vinegar in the Hot Tub
Apple cider vinegar isn’t just for cooking anymore. Adding a few cups of apple cider vinegar to a hot tub will aid in relieving sore muscles. This hydrotherapeutic method will not harm the hot tub although it will take some time for the filters to effectively remove the vinegar from the water.Swimming Pools for Fitness and Fun
So now you’ve got your pool how can you make sure everyone gets as much use from it as possible? Sure just having a pool can be a lot of fun, it’s great to just relax and float lazily in the pool on a hot sunny day, and splashing around in the pool with kids is lots of fun but maybe with a little thought you can get more from your swimming pool.
