Response to Clark - It's not clear why you submerged the hose. It's designed to float on the top out of the way of the cleaner. The 4-wheel cleaner is designed to pull a longer hose in larger pools so it has more pull power and may not get struck on the steps as easily. If you have a smaller pool and the cleaner tires are worn smooth, you might solve you problem by replacing the tires.
