STYLE AND PERFORMANCE DRIVE ZODIAC POOL SYSTEM INC.’S NEW "SPORT SERIES" PRESSURE CLEANER FOR IN-GROUND POOLS
Polaris® 3900 Sport Delivers Maximum Torque and Improved Agility for High Performance Cleaning

VISTA, Calif. (Jan. 2009) – Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc., a worldwide provider of pool and spa products, announced today the debut of its new Polaris 3900 Sport pressure cleaner for in-ground pools. The model combines the dynamic appeal of a completely re-engineered body design with the industry’s most technologically sophisticated features, producing more vacuum power and drive torque for quicker cleaning and fewer hang-ups.

"The Polaris 3900 Sport represents an evolutionary step in automated pool cleaning, building on 40 years of Polaris experience as an industry leader," explains Kevin Braidic, Product Manager for the Automatic Pool Cleaner line for Zodiac. “The use of durable materials and innovative technology demonstrates our ongoing commitment to creating stylish, high-performance products for pool owners.”

Convenience and Power Highlight New Sport-Design Pressure Cleaner

Zodiac’s Polaris 3900 Sport is constructed from materials that will stand up to submersion in harsh chemical environments and perform tirelessly. Consumers will first notice its eye-catching metallic blue and gray color and sporty design, but will appreciate state-of-the-art features that support convenience and power, including:

  • Ease-of-Use – With an easy twist-release connector and full-zipper access, the Polaris 3900 Sport Superbag is a snap to remove and clean. Its powerful suction and larger 5-liter capacity are ideal for wide-path vacuuming, so more debris picks up with fewer stops to empty the bag.
  • Effective Cleaning – The Polaris 3900 Sport acts as a roving return line in the pool, distributing clean, filtered water throughout the pool while cleaning. The all-wheel, PosiDrive System delivers 50 percent more torque and is the most reliable and efficient drive train on the market. Durable plastics and stainless-steel hardware ensure years of dependable service.
  • Flexible Versatility – The Polaris 3900 Sport vacuums, sweeps and scrubs the walls and floor of any size or shape pool. The Sweep Hose provides effective cleaning even in tight, hard-to-reach areas including steps. Wide Trax® Tires facilitate traction, climbing and maneuverability.

Bringing power, speed and agility to automated pool cleaning, the new Polaris 3900 Sport operates by plugging into a dedicated line powered by a booster pump. The unit is manufactured for use with in-ground pools and retails for $899. Zodiac is offering a $200 consumer trade in rebate for consumers with any existing automatic pool cleaner when mailed to the corporate office. The Polaris 3900 Sport is now offered through pool supply dealers nationwide or by calling the Zodiac Customer Care Center at 800-822-7933, Monday through Friday from 5 a.m.-5 p.m. Pacific Time.
