Pool problem. Need help. New to this recently widowed

Postby Aginn10 » Tue 11 Apr, 2017 12:57


So my husband always handled the pool. He passed away last June and immediately when I went to get it fixed to there were issues. I was able to fix them with the help of you tube. However I am stumped here. On my Polaris PB4-60, there's a hose that comes out that white tube and goes in the top of the pump. It has sprung a leak. Not a leak at the metal part but the kind like your hose gets where it shoots way up in the air a fine mist? Only it's spreading. I have ZERO clue what to do. I have ZERO clue if it's something fixable even. And even tho the pool sweep seems to be getting enough power, there are constantly bubbles where it connects into the wall of the pool. Could this be related? Please please any help is greatly appreciated!!!! Amy

Without seeing the leak I think you will have to replace the flexible pipe

Looks almost like a garden hose type of screw fitting. Polaris should have one. Maybe even a Polaris dealer would have one.It "should" be a relatively easy fix. Good luck.
