I have a Polaris 380 that constantly gets hung up at the hose/pool connection on the wall and in my L shaped pool, the unit always gets hung up when it makes the right angle turn. It goes to the wall and just stays there. The reverse valve will pull it away but then it just goes back to the same place on the wall. I have replaced the float and the reverse valve and the gear, which never lasts long as it always gets stuck against the wall. See Pic
I am thinking about going back to a 280, but am afraid I will have the same problem.
With regard to getting stuck at the hose connector, anyone have any ideas for some fix there?\
