When to Replace Polaris 280 Wheels
The Polaris 280 pressure side pool cleaner has three wheels with teeth that engage the drive gears making the cleaner move. Only two of the wheels are drive wheels that engage the polaris 280 turbine shaft
that turn the wheels. Over time these teeth will wear down or break and they will no longer fully engage the turbine shaft resulting in a pool cleaner that is sluggish or not moving.
When you notice your polaris 280 pool cleaner
is moving slower than normal or is just sitting motionless in the pool when the booster pump is on, do a quick visual inspection of the cleaners wheels to make sure the teeth on the inside of the two drive wheels are still good. If not it is time to replace them.
When replacing the polaris 280 wheels
, before buying new wheels, remove the old wheels that need to be replaced first and inspect the wheel bearings to see if they need replacement also. You'll know if the bearings need to be replaced because they will fall apart when you remove the wheel or you will notice they are separating. Save yourself some time by making sure the bearings are good before purchasing any replacement parts.
