hayward power-Flo Matrix Pump serier
Above ground doughboy 16x24-dug 2 feet in the ground
Returned Robo-Kleen cause that stopped working after 1 or 2 times.
Purchased good ole manual vacuum. Followed all the steps.
Hose from Skimmer to Pump collapsed upon vacuuming.
Thought...ok hose not strong enough to take suction pressure.
Went to 2 Home Depot's, 1 Lowes, 2 pool stores, no luck.
Finally found 1 1/2 inch clear braided flexi hose. Looks strong as could be.
In the rain (NY), went out to switch the hoses. Ok....a little wet, but that's ok cause this is going to work. Put all in place, and......same thing happened.
We're at our witts end. My husband is thinking about building a hose of pvc with elbows, etc. cause that can not collapse!
Kindly share your experience and fixes. This was supposed to be FUN!
Also...... Hayward Pro Series High Rate Sand Filtration sytem blast sand for 1 or 2 seconds into the pool each time the filter is turned on.
Please help us!
Thank you in advance
