However you should see the look on her face when the polaris decides to swing the tail out of the water and squirts her face with water

    "Sorry you got sprayed with cold water, he's such a Bad Dog!"
    And you know if the Dog is humping the hose connection or stuck on his side at the swim-out and you have to drag him away, instead of thanking you, he will pee on you. Bad Dog!

    Dang - I missed this post! Our first cleaner (a Ray-vac) was called "Wilson" (As in "wiilllsooooonnnnn... commmme baaackkk...." (from the movie "cast-away")).

    My kids now call the Polaris 380 "Sternum". Still not sure why.
