I purchased a Pentair Racer pool cleaner. It includes 30 feet of hose. My pool is almost 40 feet from the wall fitting to the farthest point--so I need to buy a 10 foot feed hose extension.
The Pentair Racer Manual CLEARLY STATES that I should buy P/N 360265. This is the SOFT feed hose kit. The manual says to install this section at the wall fitting end.
This arrangement will leave 2 hard feed hoses sandwiched between 2 soft sections--with one soft section at the wall fitting.
My intuition tells me that this is INCORRECT, and that I should instead be ordering 360266 HARD feed line hose--to have only one section of soft hose at the cleaner end that is sized to the depth of the pool.
Does anyone know which hose I should buy? Who is correct: Pentair or pool_owner?
