Hi all — just bought a used Kreepy Krauly Classic (about 4 years old, not the newest model they released) and bought all new hose for it. For some reason, the hose keeps getting tangled/coiled/cork-screwed when it makes it's laps around the pool. I have a very long, lap-like pool (one, long rectangle basically) so I have to use all 12 pieces of hose (about 40') so it can reach the farthest end. I'll put it in with no tangles and as it makes it's lap around, it ends up looping the hose on itself. And that means it won't reach the farthest end of my pool (which happens to also be the side that gets the most dirt). Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I use it through the skimmer and no matter how many times I straighten out the hose, it just loops on itself as it makes it's laps. Was thinking about buying the "Twister" to see if it'd help, but wondering if anyone has any suggestions/tips/advice?
I also have left the hose out in a line in the sun, and don't coil the hose when I store it either.
