    Polaris 360 - can I use the hose like a Polaris 280 does?

    Hi all...I have a Polaris 360 cleaner that uses the large diameter corrugated plastic hose, and it seems like it is always springing little pin-hole leaks. We were at a friends today that just had a new pool installed. They have a Polaris 280 cleaner that uses a smaller and heavier hose. Looks like heavy rubber tubing instead of cheap plastic.

    Can I retro-fit my 360 to use that same hose?

    Here's what my 360 hose looks like:

    Here's what the 280 hose looks like:

    Thanks in advance!

    While they're both pressure side cleaners, you most likely won't get enough flow through the smaller hose to run the 360. The 280 runs at a much higher pressure and lower flow than 360 does.
