Hi, guys. New to the forum. But I appreciate the wealth of knowledge and information available. I'm in the Tucson area. I had the pool built in 2007, and I am doing my best to learn how to handle as much as possible myself.
I have an issue and I've searched through the forum a bit to try and find the solution before posting. I got some ideas but still wanted to double check to choose the right solution. I have the Polaris Caretaker 5-port in-floor cleaner. I had some problems last year with the cycling of the pop-ups. It would get stuck in one section-not cycle. I cleaned the valves and the filter and that would fix it for a bit. But this year I can't get it to cycle. It keeps getting stuck in one section. And some of the pop-ups that come up now aren't in the 'regular' cycle....like a couple from this usual section and a couple from the next section in the cycle are up. I was wondering if maybe some of the gears are stripped. I haven't disassembled the valve....thought I'd get some ideas first. Maybe a rebuild kit would fix it?
Apologies upfront for novice mistakes in posting or vocab. I'll get the hang of it....
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
