I’m not sure if this question can be answered categorically one way or the other……
……on a hose run of approx. 20feet on a Polaris 380……how many swivels would you expect to see?
I don’t know how often I would expect to see hose tangles in a 2 hr. run of the cleaner, but we’ll get several. The machine will untangle itself only when the backup valve kicks in, but by that time it has wasted 5 minutes or so cleaning time. I’m wondering if we have enough swivels and if just adding one more would not cause any harm.
The leader hose has a swivel at 5 feet from the cleaner, another swivel at join of leader and secondary. The third swivel is about 8 inches from the quick connecter into the pool wall. So the secondary doesn't have any swivels in it's 10 ft length.
