Pool Polaris overhaul

The belts broke on my Polaris. I looked on Youtube and found a video on how to replace them. Since I had the whole thing apart anyway I figured.... how about a paint job.

I have always hated the chalky blue and white of the unit sooooo.


I went to HD and looked for some paint. Wanted a bit of color and this is what I ended up with.



The purple is the top, red is the under carriage, gray is the wheels and the white is the hub caps. There will be a white float on top and white tires.

I'll post an assembled pic later. I need to the paint dry. I'd like to do some flames but I do not have that kind of artistic talent. May be I can find some water proof decals.

How will the paint stand up to chlorine and water?

My parents is in need of a paint job, so I'm curious.

No idea. I was wondering about that as well. I guess we will find out in a while.

One of the bearings fell apart. I ha dread on line that while I have the unit apart its a good idea to replace them since there are perishable. Did I listen ... nope. As I was putting the unit back together I tipped it on its side and small ball bearings just started to fall out. Great. I went on line and the local pool place wants $16 a piece. Seems a bit steep. Amazon had them for $9 for a 4 pack. I ordered them and they will be here fri.
