    This skimmer type is what we use.
    We also have the other (bag) type which we never use.
    Try it out, it works well and cleans itself very well, too.

    remember to click Free Call Pin to make Free Calls Around the World to check for the new 4 digit pin of the day. It changes everyday.
    I have never been able to make a call on the weekends. Maybe the servers become congested as everyone is trying to call.

    I expect the congestion is our new friend "Pete"..... he seems to have a shortcut to the airwaves where ever he wants.

    He is in the DR..... also relates to the DR abuse of the system... in more than ways than one.

    The flat net is not used for skimming the pool bottom. It is specifically made for skimming off the top surface of the pool. You bought the wrong type of net. Take it back. Tell them you made a mistake, and I bet they will return it for the net you should have bought.

    Hope you went to the right pool store.....
