    Polaris 180 pool cleaner question

    so I bought a house with a pool adn the previous owners were nice enough to leave me the polaris 180 auto pool vacum bot.

    Last week, I came home from work to find one of the couplings in the hose had broken...I replaced it and the same thing happened to a different coupling inthe house yesterday.

    Should I just buy all new ones? Is this a situation where I replace one and the old ones will all break?

    I am really just looking for some expierence from anyone who has owned a polaris product, specifically the 180.

    thanks in advance!!

    Welcome

    Check the fittings in the hose to be sure they all swivel.
    Pressure on the cleaner may too high and cause the couplings to disconnect.
    Check the pressure relief valve.
    Wheel RPM's need to be less than 32.

    See section 4 in the link below for specific instructions.
