    Vacuum hose length for 32X16 Ultra Frame pool

    Can anyone recommend the optimal vacuum hose length for an Ultra Frame pool 32X16X52. I don't want to get one that is too long. Cheers

    Welcome Rich!

    To be honest, I'd rather have one too long than too short. I mean, wouldn't you?
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Where are your skimmers located? You need a hose that will reach from the skimmer basket you will use for vacuuming to the farthest corner while walking around any obstacles. I also have a 16 x 32 pool and have a 40' hose. My skimmers are approximately 6' from either end of my pool. With that skimmer placement, that length gives me plenty of length to reach around the pool with plenty of slack at the farthest point.

    OK. A longer hose is better


    How about the brushy thing that you use to sweep the bottom of the pool. Is there a particular type that is better for an AGP?

    I use the following for sweeping and vacuuming (no shameless advertising, links used to show what I have):

    Both work well for me.
