Exactly: No more than 3' from the head.
And that first section of hose is the "Soft" Clear style. The Back up Valve will be installed on it... And that hose should be no longer than the deepest part of the pool.
See pic, back up valve inside the square outline...

What is a backup valve


Should be located one hose length back from cleaner head. Sort of tear drop shaped in-line with the hose. It has a gear inside that changes water flow so the unit will lift off pool bottom every couple minutes in case it gets stuck in a corner.

Have had my current Polaris 380 for around 6 years. Nothing has changed...but suddenly the cast to my backup valve split 3/4ths of the way around above the threads. Replaced with backup valve from...


It is likely a coincidence but you may have a restriction of the water downstream from the device. This would cause a higher pressure and might therefore add to the stress on the backup device. Regardless of the cause you still need to new backup valve or a new part to replace the part that split. They are not hard to replace if you can get it apart.

If you have trouble getting it apart you can bring it down to Leslies Pool Supplies and they can put it back in order for just the price of parts.

I hope this helps.

I think it is a coincidence. On the other hand, there could be a restriction downstream causing the pressure to be too high. I would check for this but either way you will need to buy a new one. I hope this helps.

My Polaris 380's wheels have stopped moving or move at a very,very slow rate. The pulleys are fine, the inline screen is clean, the booster pump is fine.


remove the backup valve temporarily and note action. If improved - replace valve. Also check head float for water. There should be none present.

Having problem with polaris 380 not moving. just replaced back-up valve and having a different problem. there are three small devise on hose that are spraying water.


If the wheels are spinning independently you have broken drive belts. The hose swivels are leaking also which could lower the pressure to the head.
