    Leader hose, weights, and flow indicator on a Polaris ATV?

    Are these needed? I got the 340 ATV for free with a broken belt and it just came with a regular hose, no leader, weights, or flow indicator. What's the difference between a leader hose and a normal hose section? My normal hose connects just fine to the cleaner. Can't I just count the wheel RPM and skip the flow indicator? Do you really need to weight the hose? My pool is about 15' x 28'. Thanks!

    If it works fine without them then go for it. How long have you ran it in the pool?
