Question about Polaris 380 In Ground Pool Cleaner
The backup valve should shut off completely. All the pressure should be going to the Polaris for 3 minutes, and then all the pressure to the backup valve for 35 seconds. If water is coming out of the backup valve when it should be off, then needed pressure to the Polaris is being wasted.
If the Polaris is working fine, then no reason to fool with it. If not, you need to fix the backup unit. You can open it up and clean out debris and readjust it. (You'll really need a "strap wrench" from a hardware store to get off the outer ring. I paid $6). You can purchase the the inside mechanism if you can't fix it. You can also purchase an entire backup valve...outer case and inner mechanism. I bought one for $42 off ebay but they sell for $50-60 and my local pool store quoted $100.
