    Cyclone Blower or Mighty Vac?

    The pool season just began and I am already thinking about closing. I have decided to buy either a Cyclone blower or a Mighty Vac blower like the pros use. Maybe because it is pool opeing season right now I have found pretty good pricing on either unit. I can get the Cyclone blower for $298 and the Mighty Vac for $318 total cost. I need opinions from the pros on which one is better. I'm leaning towards the Cyclone blower because it has a higher horsepower motor and also a higher airflow (based on data found online). One thing that concerns me about the Cyclone Blower is that I can't find a website for the manufacturer.

    Opinions and comments will be greatly appreciated!

    You're thinking about closing now? Or you're just thinking about stuff you want when it's time to close? Was just wondering... I know nothing about the blowers, sorry.

    Never want to close the pool. Just planning ahead and buying the blower when it is cheaper.

    Ok. Couldn't believe anyone wanted to close their pool now!

    I know it's the wrong season to discuss closing, but any pro's out there with an opinion on which blower to buy?

    They are both fine, very effective for blowing out pool lines. Either one is overkill for most homeowners.
