I will be closing out my pool by myself for the first time and I purchased the Cyclone liner vac through Amazon to do so. I have long lines and I know the pool place had trouble blowing them using their regular equipment. I was always worried as to what to use to blow the lines if I was to attempt this myself. The question is regarding this blower vs a regular shop vac/blower. The Cyclone states it has 3hp and it costs around $300, I saw a Ridgid shop blower in HD yesterday that is 6hp and only $99. Did I waste all that money or is this a different kind of hp we are talking about here? I read the Cyclone is what the pros use to blow out lines but why spend all that money if something so much cheaper can do the same job?
