Hi,

I know that the AXV414P (rubber) shoes are specified for concrete pools, but it seems like they work just fine in my fiberglass pool. I was wondering if they would damage the fiberglass pool though? The AXV413P (cork) shoes are specified for fiberglass, but they cost 3-4x as much, plus they we down much quicker.

Thanks,
Steve

I cannot see how they would damage the fiberglass. I suspect the cork ones are designed for the unit to climb the walls more easily on the slick fiberglass.
