Regarding the white float bulb on the back of the vacuum should it be empty and hollow or when I shake it should there be some water inside? My unit is pretty much brand new but when I shake it it seems already half filled with water somehow.

Thanks,

Jonathan

What model Polaris cleaner do you have?

My white float is sealed and gets no water inside of it. I suspect you have a crack in yours. Maybe you can drain it and patch the crack. Otherwise replace the float.

I replaced the float. 7 bucks. Seems to be behaving better now. Thanks.
