OK, still a bit unsure about the thought process that did (or didn't) go into "How to connect a suction device to a hole in a skimmer sump".
The manual rollers on a board model uses a single piece of common tubing. Cool.
The suction cleaners want their hoses cut into 4' sections so they have lots of junctions to fail.
Is there a rational reason for this? Can someone explain it?
Are there adapters to use one hose with the other device?
Is there a reason I couldn't buy a section of the hose at a big box and splice the ends from a cleaner section?
