    This may be a dumb question...

    At most it will alternate the direction of the water line cleaning and the twist in the wire floating in the pool.

    Storing My Hayward Tigershark QC

    I kept it in a storage box and would sit it on a short piece of 2x4 so the rollers and treads didn't touch anything. I really liked it but it died about a week ago. With a little care it lasted 12 years and did a good job of cleaning.

    Storing My Hayward Tigershark QC

    I had a Tiger Shark for about 12 years and storing it on its side is not a good idea. The impeller motor shaft is straight when the unit is sitting flat. Sitting on its side puts the weight of the motor on the bearing that runs through water proof case to the impeller. It will eventually...

    Suggestions on which Dolphin Robot?

    The Z5 has Top-Access Cartridge Filters. Top access was one of the things one was looking for. Not pulling on the cord to get it were I wanted was another.

    New Stenner install , couple questions

    My only concern would be the off gassing of the chlorine in the garage and the way it corrodes metals. Light switch contacts, garage door openers are a few of the things that it can have a negative effect on.

    chlorine off-gassing in peristaltic pump supply lines

    Since this is a peristaltic pump and is self priming would adding a couple of minutes to the run time solve the problem? Unless your lines are extremely long all the air should be gone in a few minutes.

    I just got a pentair VS pump from them a couple of months ago. Happy with the price and the service. BlakeJ keeps a eye on the board and will jump in if he sees a problem. Glad everything work out for you.
