Question about Pool & Spa
With some model pool vacuums the hoses tend to get stuff over time and stop swaying back and fourth. Depending on the type of cleaner it may have a he head adjustment screw to increase flow or the barb fitting the tail attaches to may twist to adjust the flow. Try adjusting the flow up and see if it helps. If not it may likely be due to the age of the tail and may need to be replaced.
Please also note that the tails do not need to sweep. It is just an extra feature to help stir up debris in tight spots so the cleaner can get it later.

Make sure that the opening at the end of your pool cleaners sweep hose is not blocked by the sweep hose scrubber. If this does not work, you will need to adjust the sweep hose screw as mentioned above. The only thing that I would add about that is to make sure that you turn your booster pump off before you make adjustments. Hope this helps! I have a copy of the users manual for this model. Let me know if you need it and I can give it to you.

The hose connected on the interior of the polaris could be disconnected. seperate the housing and you will see the hose. Or you need more pressure at the wall. Try closing are reducing the amount of flow to the skimmers to up the flow at the wall connection. Your back up valve should pull the polaris off the steps. Set the rotating jet propulsion on rear to 11: 00 position.
