    My Pop-ups keep popping out

    I have Polaris type pool pop-up cleaners that keep popping out. Any suggestions to fix? I've been told by a couple Maint guys to just wrap electrical tape over the locking tabs, but they still come out.

    Ate they missing the o rings, that usually makes them snug. Teflon tape sometimes work also.

    They're not an O-ring type.

    Sorry, wrong pop up. Do you install them with the tool? And twist them in? I assume you do. As in my earlier comment, I've had some success with Teflon tape stretched over the 2 tabs. But its the only trick I know. Maybe someone else has a better idea.

    zodiac have a small nylon gasket that fits over the bottom of the cleaning head which gives the head a bit more bite when locking them in. hope this picture works.
