Does your automatic pool cleaner hose...get tangled ?

Our Polaris 360 did, for years. Worked on/replaced swivels and floats.....laid out all the hose in the sun for a few hours. Did little or no good. Cold water produced more tangles.

Finally, about 3 years ago....I disregarded all the Polaris instructions about placement swivels and floats a certain distance from each other.....and started cutting pieces of pool noodles of various lengths.....slitting them to fit hose and taping in place. Left the swivels in place, but removed 2 floats and moved some other floats back towards wall fitting.

After some adjustments...it has worked great, summer and winter. It will tangle and un-tangle by itself...... and I have to do it manually about once a month.

Too dumb to post a picture...but about 2/3 out from the wall fitting floats. The rest heads down to the Polaris.
