    Polaris wheel fell off

    New pool owner here. I inherited a Polaris pool robot with my vinyl pool. Today I discovered one of the Polaris wheels on the bottom of the deep end. There is also a screw, washer, and small metal plate (couldn't get those off the bottom with the net...will have to go swimming!)

    Is the wheel repairable?

    Be careful and gentle.. You obviously didn't rip it. Thickness helps too.

    Yes it is repairable, the question is how much will it cost you What model Polaris is it?

    I've had just about every Polaris failure over the years and the good news is, they are usually easy to fix. I've also lost a wheel, but I had lost the entire axle, cracked plastic. If there is a metal plate on the bottom, it's likely a bit more than just the wheel screw coming off, but that depends on the model.

    eh...most of those require a phillips head and 15 minutes to repair, plus the part.
