Polaris….380 I believe…
Is it possible for the hose assembly over time to lose its flexibility or develop a permanent bend such that the cleaner wants to stay in one half of the pool only or get stuck in a corner going nowhere? The cleaner is 14 yrs. old…..yes folks I know..….’time to get a new one, you probably squeak when you walk’. But the frame is still ok and every other part is serviceable. Actually I had to repair the frame a few years ago with the top off a Vaseline jar and some plumbers glue but that’s another story. Before I reach deep into my trouser pocket and ferret around for the 600 or so for a new cleaner I’m thinking of buying some new tubing and see what that does….or possibly I can lay the current tubing out and see if it is twisted out of shape. I’ll check the other parts, float, back up valve etc. which have over the years been replaced, but was wondering if anyone had ever seen improvements with replacing the hose assembly. At the moment she is next to useless at cleaning the pool.
