    Adjusting the polaris 65

    Ok I am wanting to make sure I am understanding this correctly before I cut a thing,LOL

    I have the p65 in the pool and of course its not moving correctly. It says to extend the hose to the longest part of the pool, the hose should be 4 feet shorter than this point. So I need to cut off four feet of hose then? I swear I am not bleach blonde,LOL Just want to clarify before I start snipping away on this thing.

    I cut mine so that the polaris could bump up against the wall of the furthest point in the pool from the return. I would start there and see if it works better for you. Remember, you can always cut another foot from the hose, but you can't add it back on!

    Hi Greg

    I should have added that fully with the hose fully extended from the return. It goes exactly the entire length of the pool, 27 feet.That is why I didn't understand, do I cut it or not. If I cut it then it would not reach the other side of the pool, it would be 4 feet short.
    Hmmmm

    or maybe since I have the pool light. I have an adaptor that fits over the pool light and I hook the polaris to that. Seems kinda cheesy if you ask me. I am use to the I/G where we had a totally sepertate hook up and booster pump.

    What do you mean when you say it's not moving right? Is it only going in one direction?

    Never mind! It's working finally! It cleaned the pool really well. Just needed a little tweaking and NO I do not need to cut the hose.
