This piece just broke off our Polaris vacuum that came with our pool last summer, and since it broke off the vacuum does not move around the pool anymore. Is there any way that it can be reattached or do we need to buy a new vacuum?
Red circles showing where it attaches. Doesn’t seem like it was the best set up in the first place if it broke off so easily.
suze: You can replace that part. You’ll need a feed mast and the float head. Its a fairly easy repair as Polaris repairs go. Just make sure you don’t lose the oring that goes at the bottom of the feed mast.
ari: I’ll check it again but it doesn’t look like it comes off. It’s like a plastic molding. I looked it up and a different Polaris model has a feed mast that looks like it screws in.
doug: Where it broke is off the mast, Suzanne is correct. The new mast has the part that broke off molded into it.
suze: I can look the part numbers up for you when I get to work in the morning. I don’t have my Zodiac book with me.
ari: that would be helpful thank you. Can you tell by looking at it what the Polaris model is that I have? If not I can look around on it to find the model number.
suze: if you’ll pm me a picture of the sticker on the back, that will tell me everything I need.
ari: Great I will, thanks. I found this part on Amazon that I think might be it. I didn’t realize it was such a big part. Link
ari: here’s the sticker.
jacob: I just did this repair myself last week Ari if you run into issues feel free to reach out. It was pretty straight forward. There will be a rubber o ring inside, make sure to put that back.
ari: did you have to buy the feed tube and the mast (the roundish thing)?
jacob: the float slides off and you put that back On the new piece. Looks like the stem is what broke like mine. I just replaced it with this part. But order the part that people told you above. I have a slightly different model then you.
ronni: 9-100-7007 is the part number.
ari: Does that come with the “float head” too? The float head on mine looks like it came attached with no way to detach, but that part number doesn’t show the float head at all.
suze: The feed mast is part number 9-100-7007. The float head is part number A21.
suze: Ari, let me know if you run into issues finding those parts.
jacob: float slides off the old part and onto the new part
