    Tail coming off Polaris

    The tail keeps coming off my Polaris 280. Any recommendations on how I can try to secure it? I'm getting g tired of fishing it out of the deep end. Thanks!

    How about a call to Polaris tech support?- 800-822-7922

    Maybe they know a trick or two to keep it on.

    Thanks, Yippee. That may be the easiest thing to try first. I also see that Amazon sells a $4 Sweep Hose Attachment Clamp Replacement.

    Wow, what a coincidence. Mine just came off for the first time ever this morning and I'm waiting for it to stop raining so I can see the bottom and find the clamp!! Good thing i have a TFP clear pool and should be able to find it. otherwise, i was going to try a decent strength zip-tie or two.

    I tried the cable tie on mine and it has held so far. Thanks for the suggestion!
