    Pentair Racer Feed Hose Extension

    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?

    I received the answer from Pentair. I was wrong. The manual is correct.

    Soft Feed Line Hose should be used to extend the hose when it is not long enough. Soft Feed Line Hose should be connected at the wall fitting end.
