    Hose for Lil Shark

    I think my pump is too strong for my Lil Shark. After a few minutes it literally causes my hose to collapse. Does anyone have a suggestion for a stronger hose or how to eliminate this problem?

    Maybe you need a vacuum regulator instead of a stonger hose.
    It's a piece that goes in the hose or port and lets some water in instead of it all having to come through the vacuum.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was going to order the regulator and then decided to look through the box of spare pots and low and behold there it was. Put it on and the vaccum is now no longer collapsing the hose and seems to be cleaning better.
