Is your Polaris Quattro™ Sport pool cleaner getting stuck on the steps in your pool? Here are some solutions to remedy the issue.
6 Solutions to Stop Your Polaris Quattro™ Sport From Getting Stuck On the Pool Steps
These six solutions are the most common fixes to prevent the Polaris Quattro™ Sport pressure-side cleaner from getting stuck on the stairs.
- Check the wheel RPM:
Your target wheel speed should be between 28-32 RPM. If your cleaner’s wheels aren’t in the target range, check out Section 7 in the owner’s manual under “Adjust Wheel Speed” to get your wheels back in range.
- Check the filter canister for debris:
If there’s debris in the filter canister, clean it out, and see if that fixes the issue.
- Ensure the hose is floating and that the hose floats are positioned properly:
Position the first float up against the feed hose connector. Then, space the additional hose floats 1-3 feet apart.
- Adjust the thrust jet:
Loosen the square nut on the thrust jet with a wrench to change the setting and tighten it to secure it back in place. For a more detailed step-by-step process for adjusting your thrust jet, refer to Section 8 in the owner’s manual under “Fine Tuning.”
- Remove any unnecessary hardware:
Get rid of any roadblocks in your pool. Alternatively, consider installing a Ladder Guard Kit (part # G21) from your Polaris dealer.
- Install a Back-Up valve accessory:
If you opt for this option, you might need additional hose nuts and a swivel. Be sure to position the back-up valve and its adjacent hose float 6-8 feet away from the cleaner. (These are parts #G62, black, and #G52, white)
