Hi,

I ordered the 2x thepoolcleaner and it looks like I need another 20 feet of hose to make it from the skimmer in the deep end to the shallow end wall. One alternative is to move thepoolcleaner from the deep end skimmer to the shallow end skimmer every time we run it...seems a pita. Does anyone do this or should I just return it in favor of another cleaner?

thanks,
jd

my pool is roughly 37x17 but it's about a 35 foot run from the skimmer in the deep end to the far wall of the shallow end.

You probably needed the 4x, it has a longer hose and a different cleaning pattern.

the 4x comes with two more hoses so a total of 11 hoses - 33 ft. It is geared a little different but I haven't had any issues with using a 2x in large pools (I have 12 of these on my accounts). Why can't you just leave it in the shallow end skimmer? Just curious.
