III. Maintenance
To ensure the Polaris is operating at its optimal
efficiency, it is important to empty the filter bag
and clean the filter screen on a regular basis.
It is also important to maintain a clean pool filter.
A dirty filter can result in sluggish or inefficient
operation. Make sure the Polaris 165 is discon-
nected from the pool wall before cleaning and
backwashing the pool filter.
A. Emptying the Filter Bag
1. Turn off the pool pump. Push in on the but-
tons and slide the filter bag off the jet sweep
assembly.

2. Turn the bag inside out over a trash can.
3. Reattach the filter bag making sure the frame
of the bag is completely open.
B. Cleaning the Filter Screen
Inside the quick disconnect there is a filter
screen. It acts as a safety filter to keep any debris
that is not caught by your pool filtration system
out of the Polaris. If the filter screen clogs often,
consult your pool professional.
Please Note: Running the Polaris without the
filter screen can damage the Polaris.
To clean the filter screen, pull it out of the quick
disconnect. Rinse out the debris and press the
filter screen firmly back into place.
C. Backwashing the Pool Filter
Always disconnect the Polaris from the pool wall
before cleaning or backwashing the pool filter.
Afterwards, let the pool filtration system run for
at least five minutes to flush out the return lines
before reconnecting the Polaris.
D. Storage and Winterizing
rame
When storing the Polaris 165, remove the sweep
ilter Bag
hose and float hose from the surface module.
Also remove the jet sweep assembly from the
sweep hose.
Drain the surface module carefully. Twist it in
all directions to aid in the removal of the water.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT WHEN
YOU ARE PUTTING THE POLARIS 165 AWAY
FOR THE WINTER. We suggest storing the
surface module in a clean, dry and warm envi-
ronment out of direct sunlight. We also
recommend the jet sweep assembly lay flat
and the hoses lay or hang straight.
Remove the universal wall fitting when winter-
izing your pool. With the quick disconnect
attached, pull the quick disconnect away from
the wall as you unscrew the universal wall fitting.
Leave the universal wall fitting attached to the
quick disconnect while storing the Polaris.
In some cases, it may be necessary to use a uni-
versal wall fitting removal tool (part #10-102-00)
to remove the universal wall fitting from your pool
wall. The tool is available from a participating
Polaris dealer.

    I just purchased my second Polaris 165. I tried everything to keep it from coiling around the lead hose. I laid the lead hose in the sun for hours and as soon as I put it back in the water it coils up again. Please help!!
