I'm a new pool owner, and so far I have been able to repair my pool cleaner, backwash valve, clean my filter, and many other small things thanks to resources on the internet like this. I'm a DIY guy, so this pool thing shouldn't be an issue... Thanks for providing the info!
I don't think any maintenance has been done to this pool for over 5 years.
My filter pressure was at 50 pounds before I cleaned it. Now it's at about 18. Water flow has increased dramatically! After I cleaned the filter, my Polaris 280 (I think that's what it is) stopped moving. I cleaned the in-line filter that was totally clogged, and now it moves, but only does wheelies, and the tail doesn't sweep. I've adjusted the float and the tail sweep pressure, but it floats on it's side or does wheelies.
