    I was just thinking the suction would be too much for sand. I assume I should just skim the top like I'd normally do, anyway. Sand isn't porous enough for crap to really get in there.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Yup, that's what I do. I still end up sucking up some sand, but I don't mind. I'm really wanting some stronger suction so I'll be able to pick up more yuckies.

    Cool deal. Thanks Mandy. Glad you mentioned something, otherwise I'd be using buckets forever. ;P

    Lol, not a problem. I can't wait to get mine, and I can't imagine carrying buckets for a 75g. I may try suckering the hubby into letting me get mine this week.
