    The only problem with that is if it causes the pump to lose prime while it's off. does the hose go through the front of the skimmer and connecto to a vacuum plate? I know with our suction side jerker connected to a vacuum plate If I don't physically hold it down it'll come lose when the pump shuts off.

    thanks for the reply, I just got back and was afraid to leave it in the pool.
    the hose goes directly into the skimmer not using a plate so that should not be any problem.
    When I got back the pool was super clear, but lots of dead algee, the ranger would have eliminated that problem. Next time I will try it.
    What do ya'll think?
    Thanks!!!
