I have a Legend Kreepy Krauly and as most do it came with about a 3 foot tail or sweep. My question is can the tail be reduced in length and if so, does it have a negative impact on it performance?
The reason for the question is that when it crawls up the the wall and gets close to the water line, the tail comes out and shoot water out of the pool. I believe this is my main source of water loss over the past year and want to try and limit this. Also, the water more often than not ends up on the windows and storm door on the back of the house and needs to be cleaned multiple times a week. One of the pool builders we had bid on our pool project mentioned that since we wanted salt water that the pool cleaner would need a shorter tail to reduce the amount of water coming from the pool.
So, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as always!
