I did away with the worthless FR filter after it burst, bypassing with shark bite connectors. I use an inline hose filter. If it bursts, it will only water the grass outside with no harm done.

I recommend the Griots Garage random orbital polisher. You can buy online, but it is the same price or cheaper at AutoZone. AutoZone stores near me also stock the buffing and waxing pads.
