    How to patch or splice a float hose on the Polaris 65

    I have a Polaris Turtle which is a pressure side cleaner that floats on top of the pool dragging a sweep hose and bag. The float hose has a puncture hole. I would like to patch the hose, but do not know what to use. I also have some extra hose so if I could find the right connectors I could simply splice a good section in. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    You could try wrapping the puncture with rubberized plumber's tape.

    Thanks. I assume I can get this at the big box stores?

    Yes, in the plumbing section. Rubberized, silicone, or rescue tape are some of the ways it is described. The one I have is called magic wrap.
