Closed my pool this year and ended up investing in a cyclone blower. Didn't realize until after I bought it that it doesn't come with a hose. Any recommendations on the best type of hose to buy for the blower? I checked out shop vac hoses at lowes and home depot, but it was tough finding the right diameter hose (about 1 1/4 inch) to connect to the blower properly.
Also, the instructions on the blower aren't very detailed. It states that the cyclone blower can be used to set a liner (not that I need to set one anytime soon), but it doesn't specify how to change the unit over from the blower setting to a suction setting to set the liner. Anyone familiar with how to do this? mainly just for my curiosity as my liner is only a year old. When my PB set my liner, he definitely used the exact same Cyclone unit to do it, but at the time I wasn't really paying attention to his blower set up as I was more interested in learning how the liner goes in.
