Belive it or not... too many swivels add to the problem!
Most people think if I add a swivel here where it begins to coil then tangle, it will fix the problem, but yet the problem remains!!!
The manufacturer recommends this for the proper layout of the hoses; from the wall all the way to the head:
Now, the Back up valve will be placed on the soft hose about 3-4' away.
Follow this and the hose should not tangle. And...
The advice about storing the hose coiled is not good, ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!
Whenever storing, always store in a straight line, otherwise it will retain the memory of the coil.

If you have stored your automatic pool cleaner with the hose coiled, this is probably what is causing the problem. Lay the hose out flat and stretch it slightly. Let it sit in the sun for several hours and it should help to straighten in. You should also not store your cleaner with the hose coiled. If you are talking about your sweep hose getting tangled, you might need to adjust it, lower your RPM, or add sweep hose weights.

SOURCE: My polaris keeps getting tangled
If the hose on these pool cleaners is becoming tangled, there are a couple things you will want to check. Remeasure the hose to verify that it is adjusted to the proper length for your pool shape. With the cleaner operating, check that the swivels in the hose and the hose connections turn freely. Make sure the feed hose if floating. Then, with the Polaris turned off, spin each of the wheels. Make sure they are all turning together and adjust if they are not.
