Our Polaris 380 is connected to a return near the south east corner of our pool. When the feed hose has no tangles or kinks the Polaris runs from the shallow end to the deep end. When the Polaris reaches the deep end near the north west corner of the pool the Polaris climbs the wall and turns around and heads back to the shallow end.
Frequently when the Polaris runs from the shallow end to the deep end the feed hose will develop a loop which shortens the feed hose by several feet. With a loop in the feed hose the Polaris cannot climb the wall at the north west corner of the pool and turn around. The Polaris just pulls on the feed hose trying to go forward. After it backs up it returns to trying to reach the wall in the deep end. The Polaris will remain stuck here for a long period of time. The problem is resolved by removing the loop in the feed hose.
The current feed hose is approximately 35 feet long. The feed hose is floating. A no kink hose would be good. Is there something I can do to the feed hose to prevent the hose from forming a loop? Would a additional feed hose section solve this problem? Are there problems when the feed hose exceeds 40 feet?
