My older polaris 280 is constantly getting tangled, see pic. Is this a sign that the hose is worn out and needs replacement? In a previous post someone suggested laying the hose in the sun to relax it, that didn't work. I also noticed after replacing the sweep hose that the sweep hose doesn't move as much as it used too even with the valve full open. The speed was also slower and it is getting stuck in corners more. My rpm's are a little low but I haven't figured out how to adjust. I removed the blue restricter plate at the wall socket and that has helped the speed. The backup function rockets half way across the pool now. How much torque should I expect from the drive wheels?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
