Polaris Back Up Valve
The Polaris Back Up Valve is located on the Polaris Leader hose and is responsible for pulling the Polaris Cleaner away from pool obstacles and increases its random pattern.
The Replacement Back-up Valve Kit is suitable for all Polaris Pressure Cleaners (Polaris 3900s, Polaris 280, Polaris 380 and Polaris 180).
To check whether is Polaris Back up Valve is functioning properly simply lift it out of the water and approximately every 3 miniutes the valve should go into back-up mode where water is thrusted out of the valve.
If the valve does require replacement, unscrew the plastic nuts securing the valve on both sides to the hose and remove the valve. The hose nuts are then placed back onto the Polaris Back Up Valve and then are screwed onto the hose.
All good, works fine. Took a while to get here but I suppose its that time of year.
Discovered problem with the value on Saturday and ordered replacement online and it was delivered on Monday.
Arrived on time, easy to fit, works perfectly
I order the wrong item and it came very quickly. When I realised the mistake they were very happy to swap it over. Great service.
