Response to Hi, Bea. This cleaner can be used with the purchased of Tape Tires - PVXH006HPK2 which is for pools with tiled or really smooth surfaces. The max depth for this model if 5 feet. As for how long it will last is solely based on how often it is used, water chemistry, and how well it is taken care of. .
