    Where being pointed to is where a crack is, sorry i cannot get the other pictures to upload.

    I will say that i see its a Polaris part, but i am not sure what it is, and what to look up for replacement.

    If you have any inside on this part/piece please let me know

    Looks like a Paramount floor cleaner valve.

    @richard320 would you recommend just buying the housing or all new parts and such? Its about a $150 difference so id like an expert opinion before making the purchase. Thanks

    I have no idea. I just looked in the visual encyclopedia to get the official name of that part and used google. I've never actually seen one of those things in the flesh.

    If the housing is broken, then that may mean something is wrong inside too? The sun out here in AZ is notoriously brutal too, so it may be better to just get an entirely new one.

    Of course, you could take it apart and see how the internal mechanisms are doing too (how springy they are). See How to Replace a Caretaker 99 In-floor Cleaning System (Re-Build Kit) - YouTube

    Ebay might be useful too for cheaper parts...
