    You can adjust the tail pressure down a bit (adjustment screw near the base of the tail) if it is whipping excessively this will increase pressure to the bag and push the Polaris it down against the pool surface a bit more. Also you can remove the rear jet and rotate it 180 degree it will make the unit tend to turn the opposite direction can sometimes help.
