Polaris 280 'Over the Deck'
I was going to retrofit a booster line to my vinyl IG pool via one of the existing 3 fiber optic fittings, but am also considering the possibility a 3/4 quick disconnect garden hose (pump shed ~25 feet from pool) and fashioning up a removable over the deck connection near my center skimmer.
I have had a robotic cleaner (Dolphin) and to me, hauling that beast in and out of the pool along with storing it and it's caddy is alot more work than rolling out or coiling up a garden hose + the 280. In all my research, it's apparent the Polaris 280 is king of the pool cleaners based on user experience - unfortunately, I could not find to much out there on "soft plumbed" installs. I'm curious if there issues the experts here might be aware of before I order one along with a booster pump..
