Is my float head on my Polaris 360 supposed to be full of water or empty. Thank you.

A  Answered on 2/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The float head for the Polaris 360 should not be full of water. I would recommend replacing yours if water has entered the float.

Not sure where the base weight is located. Is it attached on the bottom middle of unit?

Hello, The base weight is located on the bottom half of the unit near the center pipe.

What is making my Polaris 360 float to the top of water and not want to stay on the bottom?

A  Answered on 4/20/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The following things will cause you cleaner to float: Air in the unit or lines or the Base Weight is missing or out of place.

Does this part control the forward direction of the vacunm?

A  Answered on 12/1/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

No, the float is there to bring the cleaner upright if it falls from the walls. What controls the forward direction are the belts inside the cleaner.

Does this come with the screw on piece that connects this to the unit, and is it a difficult job? thanks, mike

A  Answered on 12/2/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Mike - All that is included is the float. The installation is simple. The head float threads onto the feed pipe.

Sometimes my Polaris cleaner cat walks and I was told that this float a20 could be the problem. Is this true?

A  Answered on 9/15/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes this sometimes can be the issue. The best way to be sure is by taking this float off and checking to see if water has filled it or gotten inside. This will make the rear of the cleaner weigh more than designed causing the cleaner to cat walk.
