    Suction Side Leak with Vacuum head attached

    Just looked at Costco and it appears they only sell a robotic skimmer - no other pool cleaners.

    Suction Side Leak with Vacuum head attached

    Interesting. I would not think they would take stuff back after several years. Also would not expect them to take something back that was broken from normal wear and tear as opposed to manufacture defect. I guess it might be worth checking out. Maybe next year because I just dropped a bunch...
