    Lately it's been "That d*** thing!" or "It" as in "It's stuck in the corner again!". My cleaner is an antique, and the replacement parts to give it a full tune-up would be about as much as a new cleaner anyways!

    Mine is 6 months old and I often find it laying in the deep end on its back. It somehow gets itself up though.

    That's pretty good. How do you like the 9400 4wd? Did you have the 9300 before it?

    kyle11 -- we ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE our 9400. It was our first (second year with our pool) so we did not have the 9300 before. It does an amazing job. Best thing it picked up so far was a swimming cap! LOL! Since this was our first time opening our pool, we were frankly amazed at the level of "goop" and fine grit dirt it got off the bottom of the pool. We just love it! After SEVERAL runs after opening -- it would finally run the entire pool without stopping to tell us the basket was full. Amazing.... It has NEVER been stuck or not been able to get itself out of a position.

    The Dog... as in, "Would you go empty The Dog's bag? It looks pretty full." Or, " The Dog is all tangled up in his line, would you go get him?" Or, "Stupid Dog is stuck on the step again, give him a kick would you?"

    Used to be called Bad Dog because when you did anything, set him free from the step or changed his doggie bag, he'd pee all over you. Now that we got that tail thing that doesn't happen any more.
    23,000 gallon in ground pool with rock waterfall and spillover spa, Aqualink control system, Polaris 380 cleaner, Purex Triton Clean&Clear Plus cartridge filter. Located in The Woodlands, Texas.
