Thread: Polaris 280 orifice tip replacement

    Polaris 280 orifice tip replacement

    Have a question about how easy this is to do. We are trying to install a Tail Sweep Pro, but found out that the orifice tip on the sweeper hose
    is entirely missing. The coupler that is left on the hose looks like it just twists (?) on to the hose -- no threading. Should we just get a whole new hose or can the orifice tip be replaced securely by a homeowner? Thanks!!

    If there is any wear on the hose you should replace the hose. If you choose to replace the orfice it is easy to do. start with a clean cut on the end of the hose slide on the orfice guard insert the orfice then slide the guard over the orfice. now you are ready to install your tail sweep pro. No more wet windows
