    Polaris 380 has a hole in lower housing

    Hello all and happy swimming this summer to you! I have a Polaris 380 that is 6 years old and noticed that the lower housing (white belly part) has a hole rubbed in it. The unit also needs wheels and new tail and probably other stuff that I haven't discovered just yet. It seem to run OK and picks up well. Do you think that I would be better off buying a new one or should I fix it? Seems after checking some of the part prices that it may be a near wash buying a whole unit. Your thoughts are appreciated!

    Get a quote on parts and repair cost. Compare it to the price of a replacement cleaner. Polaris is currently offering trade-up rebates for your old cleaner when you buy any listed cleaner with a product offer. Basically take in the price of a new one and factor in the trade-up rebate amount. It's worth looking into.

    They sell complete kits for rebuilding that unit. douglee25 nailed it; save yourself $$$ and get it on line unless you know a guy that can buy it from a wholesaler.
    Why is it most people that work in a pool store know nothing about pool chemistry?
