    Why does my Polaris hate me?

    Just hooked up the Polaris 360..and it's making my water cloudy! It did this last time, too. Am I doing something wrong? Isn't it supposed to eat the dirt and not MAKE a cloud?

    Check the bag for holes or tears. If you have any construction going on nearby, you may need to get a fine silt bag for your Polaris. If none of this solves the problem, then there's something else going on that is unrelated to the Polaris.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    Turns out I was paranoid. (Who, me?? lol) I thought it was making the water cloudy, but when we turned it off this morning, the water looked great. It picked up a ton of dirt, too. Thanks!
