Good points. The 220 she wanted was a good 6 inches deeper than my shoulder to fingertip length. I don't want to put on a wet suit to do maintenance

I had a 265 before the 300, and that was 30 or 31" deep....I put a 6"+ sand bed in it and still hated it.

It was 25" tall, but I sold it recently. I now have only the 105.
