We are thinking of purchasing a Tiger Shark for our Complex Pool and I was reading on their website that "using an extension cord can cause safety hazards and may cause damage to your cleaner." Anyone know why they say this and/or use one with an extension cord and not have problems? I have used numerous products with extensions cords all my life and never had one "damaged" simply by using an extension cord.
The reason I ask is that our pool maintenance room is the only place with a GFCI plug and by my measurements, this distance will "eat up" about 18 feet of the 55 foot cord for the Tiger Shark to use in our pool and thus not be able to reach the very end of the deep end of our pool.
PS: Second year Pool Manager and first time posting here. I just found this site a few weeks back and love all of the info and helpful insights from fellow pool owners/managers.
