So I have read a bunch of threads on here talking about the pros and cons of suction cleaners and I looked at the manual for the Zodiac G3. After looking at that I see a couple of issues that may give me problems because of how my pool is setup. My hope is that someone on here can tell me if it should still work under these conditions. I know no one can make any guarantees but your best guess would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
First of all my return does not have a way to make it directional and it usually above the water line. Does this pose a problem to how the cleaner will move around the pool?
Secondly the edges of my pool are flat cement There is no lip at the top. Will the vacuum stop at the waterline or escape the pool?
Thirdly, is there any way to tell if my current setup is putting enough suction power into the vacuum to make this thing work? I understand that there is a suction gauge that comes with the unit but by that time I have already spent the money. How much suction does it take to effectively move it around the pool?
Thanks for the info.
