    Polaris 280 Back Wheels Not Touching - Adjust Rear Thrust Jet Up (Post #3)

    I had an issue where the back wheels on the Polaris kept rising off the bottom. Those familiar with bicycle tricks would recognized this maneuver as an "endo" over the front wheel. Anyway, there is a thrust jet on the rear of the Polaris that can be adjusted upward to keep the back wheels on...

    Polaris disc causing screeching

    Looking for help! We had to replace our Pentair vs pump yesterday. Since the new pump was installed, there’s been a terrible screeching from the Polaris return when the Polaris is not plugged in. If I remove the blue resistor disc, the sound goes away but the flow is so strong that it spills...

    Best robot for large pool.

    We have an L shaped pool that is about 38 x 28. The deep end is 8 feet and it’s closest to the outlet, but a standard 50 foot cord won’t get my whole pool clean. The Polaris 9650 IQ has a 70 foot cord, but even that might not give me the coverage I want. Not sure if the extra 10 feet of cord is...

    Polaris pool cleaner tail

    I have a Polaris TR35p pool sweep and for some reason the tail keeps collecting debris causing the tail to stop sweeping. The debris is collecting in the slots before the sponge. I’m assuming the Venturi is collecting the debris but I’ve never had this problem before. Any reason why it might be...

    Demo in CA Bay Area? Is there really any difference?

    I was hoping to find a robotic cleaner to demo for a day before spending $1,000 + on one. I can't believe how hard it is to find a dealer in the east bay area that has a demo, its not like I'm in the middle of nowhere... The Dolphin "Elite Dealer" I talked to today doesn't even stock any of...

    Can I close the pressure return line?

    We have a two return lines that pipe to the jets, as well as a dedicated pressure line that a booster pump is connected to. The Polaris that we have is busted. The port for the Polaris is open to the pool and water is freely pumping out of it. I am pretty sure it is reducing the pressure of the...

    Polaris 3900 Sticky Wheels

    Hello - I noticed over the past few weeks that the wheels on my Polaris 3900 began slowing down until finally now they don't spin at all. I can take it out of the water and give the wheels a helping push and they will spin for a while, but soon it stops again. Any ideas on what it could be...
