About The Product
The turbine hose kit (360262) is a group of replacement parts made by Pentair. Making this a genuine OEM product. This hose was created for two different yet equally important parts that give this pressure cleaner the ability to move and suck up the dirt and debris that may be littered around the surfaces of your pool. The hose is used to transfer the high-pressure water from the water management system to the turbine drive shaft which turns the wheels and rubber tires giving the cleaner the ability to move around the bottom surface as well as climb the walls. This part is white and made from a soft rubber material in order for it to expand to the pressure of the water that travels through it. It attaches to the water management system and turbine cover via hose clamps which locks both ends into place and allows them to perform their tasks.
The only tools you will need are a small flathead screwdriver and a Phillips head screwdriver. You will need to use the flathead screwdriver to lift up the turbine hose and get it disconnected where it clips in. Now you are going to use the Phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws on the outer edge where the turbine cover is. Once removed, you can pull the cover off and the hose will be connected to it. To replace the turbine hose, you can connect the one end onto the cover. Now you can screw the cover back on and then connect the other end of the hose to the cleaner.
In this video, we show you how to remove and replace the Turbine Hose along with the Turbine Cover designed for the Pentair Racer and Racer LS pressure-side pool cleaner. The hose is used to transfer the high-pressure water from the water management system to the turbine drive shaft which turns the wheels and rubber tires. The Turbine Cover was designed to be a part of the drive system. Its purpose is to not only be a protective cover for the turbine but also to provide the high-pressure water that comes from the booster pump needed to rotate the turbine. We provide professional insight along with any useful tips or tricks that may help you during the installation/removal process of this part.
