    Pin hole in Polaris hose

    Like the title states, my Polaris hose has a pin hole in it and squirts water all over the place....sometimes outside the pool. Any ideas on how to patch it?

    Re: Pin hole in Polaris hose

    Which hose has the hole? Is it the sweep hose? You can slide one of the wear rings over it. A pin hole wont bleed too much pressure. You could slide a float over the hole if it's on the feed hose. Was the hole cause from wear?

    Not on the sweep hose. It's on the 'main' hose about 2'-3' from the main outlet.

    Hmm, strange place for a hole. Did a dog or other animal bite the hose?

    Not sure how it happened. I just noticed a small fountain while the Polaris was running this morning. We did have some extra cold snaps of weather this year and I keep the Polaris in the water 365 days a year, but I also have a timer with a freeze-protect setting.

    If it does not affect the performance of the Polaris, and it's not spraying the windows (fountain is not too high), I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just slide the nearest float over it. If it bugs you, i suppose you could cut the hose at the pinhole and add a swivel. The proper fix, although a bit pricey, is to replace that section of hose. Problem is, you have to buy a whole 10 foot section. Maybe your pool store has sections laying around he'll give you one at a good price (free).

    Thanks for the help. I will slide a float over it for now.

    I wonder if Pool Putty would work to plug up the hole.
