So, I used my Polaris 280 for the first time today and it filled up the bag with about a baseball sized ball of sand, pebbles and random debris.
Ive got a couple questions though.
1. It goes pretty quick. To the point it will get up on its side or one wheel and roll around a good bit sometimes. Can i adjust the speed at which it works easily or not at all? I will read the manual when i get home but was curious if bizarre titlting was common.
2. The pressure side port in the wall. It has that quick connect fitting for the polaris. It works fine. But when i DON'T have the pool sweep plugged in, that port flows a weak stream if water when the filters running. (My booster pump is plumbed in so the booster pump is constantly fed water even when its off, i guess to keep it moving?) I find that it robs enough flow (parasitic loss) that it causes my spillover from.my spa to barely spill over a third or so and the rest just runs downs the stone veneer instead. It amplifies the problem if i turn on the deck bubbler or any of the 3 small scuppers on the back wall. Is there a way to block that port when the pool sweep isn't in use so i can recover that flow so my water features flow right?
