You have an air leak. Check the lid oring, pull the plug on the bottom of the pump pot (where the pump basket is) and reseal with tephlon tape. Also check pipe going into pump for leaks. If you shut pump off and water squirts out or drips from the pipe it is not sealing.

If it is a year old, replace the flapper valve. Also check your water flow and make sure it is adequate. These units are subject to wear on the foot and flapper and these should be changed each season

Check for air leaks in your hoses, your pump or in the plumbing system. Also check for clogs in your pump impeller if you have any problems with your basket. Good luck.

This usually happens when there is a small stick jambing in the bottom of the openning in the Kreepy Krauly where it sucks in the water and rubbish. It is the rubber tube that has a ****, usually something is jambed in the **** to prevent it from thumping.

Kreepy Krauly has very little suction thru head but plenty thru hose


most all pool cleaners generate there motion with a thing called a venturi ! thats inside it usually moves a small propeller from the action of water being sucked hard thru the hose , on most the path to this "propeller" is different than that of pool debris , i suspect this alt path is part ways blocked , a simple way to clear is to connect garden hose to suction port of cleaner and force water Back in other direction other than that sometimes dissasembly is need to lube and clean hidden ports inside

Kreepy kraully not cleaning complete pool


If the pool hose has been connected to the Kreepy Krauly in the one position for a long time, the pool hose gets set is a position so the kreepy Krauly travels ith same path all the time. Try rotating the pool hose 90 degrees and or change the angle of the hose connector in the skimmer box.

Kreepy krauly not cleaning whole pool


If the pool hose has been used for a long time it becomes set in a particular position. Twist the hose at least at leasr 90 degrees so that the hose is set in a different configuration and the Kreepy krauly will go to a different part of the pool.

Low filter pressure


First, check for debris in the filter and pump strainer baskets. This can commonly cause these pool cleaners to get poor suction. Also, check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached.

My Kreepy Krauly won't move. I've checked the hose for holes and also replaced the vinyl suction cup on the bottom but it won't budge. Doesn't appear that there is much suction. Could it be something...


Yes, it could. Check the filter and pump for debris. This could severely restrict movement in these pool cleaners. Also, check the flaps of the Kreepy Krauly for debris. Also, check to make sure that the main drain and ALL suction lines, except the one the cleaner is attached to, are closed. This might also be why you have a lack of suction. My final suggestions would be to check the return line water flow and make sure that it is strong enough.

My kreepy krauly seems to have good suction, but moves very slow. I usually hear a tic,tic,tic,tic, But, lately it has been tic....tic......tic Very Slow


Try these suggestions to get your automatic pool cleaner working properly:
• Check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached.
• Check for debris in the filter or pump basket.
• Check for debris in Kreepy Krauly’s flapper. Debris may prevent flapper movement or restrict flow.
• Check the hose to ensure there are no leaks.
• Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system.
• Check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

It moves too slowly


If these automatic pool cleaners are moving slowly or sluggishly, first check to make sure that filter and strainer baskets are clean and not clogged. Make sure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which your Kreepy Krauly is attached. Make sure there is not debris in the flapper than might be restricting movement. Also, and especially if you are noticing bubbles during slow movements, check for leaks. Make sure there are not leaks in the hose, vacuum connections, pump basket lids, etc.

My kreepy krawly stays on the side of the pool and wont clean the bottom.I have placed the weights in the correct position. Any suggestions?


Try no weights.
Try weights in a incorrect position.
How is the hose....is it flexible......is it steering it to the sides and keeping it there?
