To drain the body bottom, discon-
nect both the float hose (#27), or
the float hose extension (#25) if
installed, and the sweep hose
(#17) from the surface module.
Remove the two phillips-head
screws (#14) on the bottom of
the surface module. Remove the
surface module top (#1) and the
mechanism (#2). Remove the
drain plug (#10) from the front of
the body bottom and drain the
water. Reinstall the drain plug,
mechanism, top, two screws,
and hoses.
3. Unscrew the pressure relief valve
(#30) to expose the holes on the
side of the valve. Adjust it in or out
until the surface module levels off.
Problem: The float hose remains coiled.
Solution:
1. See "Polaris 165 does not clean
the entire pool".
2. Lay the float hose out straight in
the sun to remove the coils.
Problem: Surface module moves too fast.
Solution:
1. Feel around the pressure relief
valve (#30). If it is releasing
excess water, try removing one
of the eyeball regulators (#33)
from another return line. If this
causes the Polaris to move too
slowly, reinstall the eyeball regu-
lators and go to the next step.
2. Unscrew the pressure relief valve
(#30) to expose the holes on the
side of the valve. Adjust it until
the surface module slows down.
3. Verify that the water pressure is
between 5 and 10 psi. A pressure
tester (part #6-113-00) is available
through your participating
Polaris dealer.
Problem: Bag does not stay on the
pool floor.
Solution:
1. Check that the bag (#23) has been
installed correctly, see page 4.
2. Check for air bubbles around the
jet body assembly (#18).
If bubbles are present, there may
be air entering the plumbing line.
Contact a pool professional.
3. The flow of water through the
Polaris 165 could be too high.
See "Surface module moves
too fast".

tion and either contact your participating
Polaris dealer or our Customer Service

    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!!
