Just remove the cover and you can easily check the obstruction or crimp. I am now able to keep my pool open year round instead of closing for winter because my Polaris makes it possible to leave in for weeks at a time. I am a lady who doesnt know much about mechanics. Hello Jamie, I've had this problem before and it turned out to be the hose not swiveling properly where it connects to the Vac-Sweep. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I tried cleaning the filters, including the tiny one inside. . I replaced the piston and randomizer because of this issue and it hasn't made a difference.
Our vac has worked fine with the light there for the nine years we've had the pool though? If you do not find the replacement parts on this page, look though the other parts' ads. I suppose it may also happen on the return end if it isn't swiveling properly. It still is the best one I have found for above ground pools using the filter pump. In this case the piston is made up of two plastic cylinders that should be pressed into each other to create the piston. Not for an Intex above ground pool I bought it for a 12' x 24' above ground Intex pool. Once the Polaris 65 Turbo Turtle is operating some fine tuning with the pressure relief valve may be needed to ensure that the Turbo Turtle operates correctly and maintenance is easy with periodic cleanings of the filter screen at the return connection and cleaning the filter bag which is as simple as pressing two buttons to remove the bag from the jet sweep and turning the bag inside out to remove the debris. It won't if the piston isn't moving freely.
Remember when Donald Trump got 145 million dollars from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians? Push the flow regulator into the adapter. Try blocking the two active jets with your fingers to see if this causes the piston to move and change to the other two jets. They charge alot more for an underground pool cleaner, but I was able to connect this to my underground pool, and it works great. Replacing the old stainless steel screws with slightly larger ones will usually work well. The Polaris only has two moving parts that go bad. If I mess with it a few minutes tilting it around , then it will go into one and start working again.
As I said, we are getting a 27' pool, I read that the 65 comes with a 24' hose, would this be an issue for me? It really doesnt move at all and when I look at it under operation, I see bubbles coming back out of the black housing. The flow indicator shows if the water flow range is correct or too slow or fast. Connect the standard hose to the end of one hose and attach the leader to the same end. Disconnect from surface unit and stretch it out in the sun for several days. The piston seems stiff to push in or out of the black cylinder.
Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian Oligarchs like the chairman of a company that's part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster, the wife of the mayor of Moscow, and a close pal of Putins? You're probably losing pressure through the damaged o-ring which would decrease the speed. It also does not use any outside source of power, so there shouldn't be any opportunities for mechanical breakdowns if you keep it out of direct sunlight while not using. Have you checked to see if the jets are alternating forward and backward properly? Replacing the center chamber assembly is easy and really not too expensive. Oh wait that wasn't Trump it was John Podesta. The small filter in this tube needs to be kept clean for the unit to cycle correctly.
I'm just puzzled and frustrated. It worked fine the last time I used it last season. It is reversing direction properly and does not curl up. Dear Randy, Our Turbo Turtle works for about 10 minutes, then curls up by the inlet and stops. The ball should float freely during one cycle of the piston. At the end of each cycle the pressure on one or the other holes causes the ball to stick to the one with the most pressure at the time.
If the swivels are okay then remove the cover on the unit and s operate it as usual, watching the piston to see if it moves freely enough. The only thing I observed with the cover off, is that it appears to be riding low in the water, and there is water coming from around the black thing sorry don't know the name where it joins the clear portion. Solution: The supply hose connecting the pool return may not be swiveling freely. Polaris 65 I have had 3 of these in the last 7 years. Polaris sells cleaners for above ground pools and underground pools. It does look like there is some debris in there.
They said that they replaced everything that could be replaced inside of the turtle. If you use to much pressure for to long you can blow the base apart. For additional information, see the Global Shipping Program This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees. There should be a valve there which may be letting too much pressure escape. Remember when Donald Trump received 500 thousand for a speech in Moscow and paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies? Maybe I missed it but it helps to know, the slots on the black piston cap are different widths and the corresponding lugs on the lower body are different sizes. I had to take it apart to discover that the internal mechanism that work the ability to direct the flow of water in different directions was a type of piston that pumps back and forth.
Hope this helps you get the pool clean before the party for your mom. Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records? The hose must reach two to three hose sections beyond the farthest point to allow for slack. The turtle is only one year old so I hate to replace it all. Use very thin coats of epoxy paint until the grooves are filled in properly. If you remove it from one side then it immediately goes over to the opposite jet and gets stuck.
We've disconnected the unit, unwound the hose several times and checked the filter. There are 2 internal one-way valves with one on each side of the piston. The product when working works amazingly well but I am sure a lot of people returned or threw it away. The only thing I havent replaced is the oring on the chamber body. It's brand new and not sure what's wrong. Did you check to see if one of the black jet nozzles is bent or otherwise plugged in some manner, Eddy? I mean, will we have a 3' foot dirty area in our pool, or will it be enough? The right back jet is not firing. I had a 18ft pool and just recently upgraded to a 24ft.
