    sorry Frank, I have no idea! I hope you find your way back to the bottom soon.

    Check out this conversation: Polaris 280 too buoyant?
    and this one ... Polaris 360 keeps surfacing.

    Maybe you're having the same problem Frank.

    Performance anxiety is a common problem, Frank. You’re not alone. The best way to help yourself is to relax and try not to focus on yourself. Try to focus on your pool’s needs and then read a few TFP threads to get some tips and tricks on how to add a little oomph to your game-plan.

    You can do it Frank! Remember, stay positive....

    PS - And stay away from any creams, gels or “magic potions” at the pool store, they’re all just scams...
