    any hose will work on skimmer?

    I need to replace the hose that runs from the skimmer to the pump. I have no local sources so looking at since I'm ordering some other misc items from them too. Will a hose labeled as a vacuum hose work or be the same thing? There is a flexible ribbed hose on it now.
    24' x 52" AGP = 13.5k gallons
    Dynamo 2.0 HP pump,Sand Dollar sand filter
    Polaris 65 vacuum (good when there are a ton of leaves on bottom), Pool Rover Jr. (LOVE it, but power box dead right now), AquaCritter (an excellent suction side cleaner)

    A vacuum hose will work but it will be much longer than you need. You should see 3' or 6' filter hoses on their site. You'll need to know whether you need 1.5" or 1.25".
