    Polaris 360 Questions

    Recently, my Polaris 360 has started doing this thing where it always ends up in the same corner of the pool and gets stuck. Yesterday I found it lying on its side in the shallow end. Any ideas on what might be causing this? I'm really hoping it's an easy fix, as I don't really want to buy a new cleaner right now.

    Check your hoses. Every time mine acted like that we had a bad hose.

    It is possibly a split hose. But I would also check the screen filter where the hose connects to the pool.

    Check the head float. They often leak & fill with water.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!
