I had a leak in a section of the Polaris hose from the unit to the back up valve. When I went to remove the hose, the hose broke off in the nut! I an not get it out - now on both ends.

Do I have to break the nut off and get new ones? Or is there some trick to get the hose remains out of the nut?

Thanks.

Welcome to TFP. There was a discussion about those nuts a while back but i can't find it now. It may not be your particular problem but it might be worth a search.

Maybe if you post a picture of it someone will know what to do.

Yes, I'd like to see a picture also. I have had problems with the hoses popping off, but I usually cut an inch off the hose, cram it back on and screw on the nut.

The nut should back off it twisted...

A Picture really will not show anything. The hose is stuck in the not and when I went to pull it out, I ripped it out except for what was left inside the nut! So now I can not get the remains out and I can not take the nut off because the hose remains make it too tight!

Woe is me.

If I'm reading this correctly, it's happened to me, and I felt it was easier just to go buy a new nut for a few $$ then to try to mess with it. I guess you could try an exacto knife or something to cut out the hose, but again, the slices on your hands and frustration probably isn't worth the price (although I am always shocked at the cost of Polaris parts!!).

Good luck!
