Why does my Polaris hose keeps twisting?
Regarding this, why is my pool hose twisting?
Hoses are twisting (like a pretzel). Perform the “Hang Test”. If the cleaner is turning in one direction only, this will cause the hoses to twist. This is a sign the gearbox needs to be replaced. If the cleaner turns both ways with a stop in-between, place the cleaner on the pool floor.
Furthermore, why is my Polaris pool cleaner floating? A Leaky Hose Leaks in the Polaris hose cause the cleaner to lose pressure, allowing it to float above the pool bottom. To check for leaks, turn the system on and pull the hose out of the water one section at a time, looking for bubbles or trickles of water.
