Hi,

What's the difference between the G59 and G52 backup valves for Polaris cleaners?

Thanks,

->g.

The G59 is described as a “double acting” backup valve. It runs twice as fast and backs up the cleaner more frequently.

The G52 is said to backup every 2 1/2 minutes. The G59 backups approximately every 1 minute 45 seconds.

I think the G59 is used in smaller pools where the cleaner gets stuck in a corner more frequently.
