SOURCE: does not clean the whole pool

may need to re-weight it or add helpers.
I had to add a rope system to my pool to get the creepy crawly to all the spots.

Not the best fix - but keeps the pool clean.

SOURCE: zodiac baracuda wont go to shallow end of pool

If you can, adjust your intake valves so more of the suction is coming from your vacuum and less from your skimmers. This will allow the the vacuum to climb out of the deep end.

SOURCE: Barracuda x7 quattro won't go to the shallow end of the pool

Zodiac X7 only 4 months have problems with Parts, had to replace all lower parts and now the flex hose fitting is bad.
I believe this design is a lemon.

With these pool cleaners, it is probably debris caught in flapper that is causing the lack of suction. Check all places in your flapper and clear away any debris.

My kreepy krauly wont clean the deep end of the swimming pool.

Your situation is unusual in that most of the time these will stay in the deep end and not get to the shallow end. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and the hose weights are in the right positions

Up to 4 feet water, 1 weight at one foot away from Kreepy
4-7 feet water, add a second weight at 6 feet from Kreepy
7-12 feet water add a third weight at 10 feet from Kreepy.

It can take some trial and error to get the Kreepy to cover the whole pool. This includes adding or removing hose sections, and adjusting the pool return "eyeballs" to different directions.

Jet Vac Will only clean the Deep end of the pool

How steep is the run from the deep end to the shallow end? Have you tried to adjust the nose wheel at all?

I have a 20X40 rectangular liner pool and my kreepy krauly stays in the deep end of the pool. I think I need to adjust the weights. Where should the weights be placed?

The first weight from the cleaning head should be adjusted so the Kreepy sits flat on the floor with the system turned off. Then you can start moving the next weight until it starts climbing the hill to the shallow end. It may take a few times but if you get the weights set correctly it should work.

Vac gets stuck in deep end and can't get to shallow end

What type of pool do you have? These specific pool cleaners are made for flat bottomed above ground pools. They are not made to move from deep end to shallow end. If you are using this on an in ground pool that has both shallow and deep or a dished above ground pool, you are not going to get accurate cleaning.

My kreppy crawly turns side ways and dosent correct its self

With this brand of pool cleaners, that is almost always going to be a problem with your hose balance. Turn your pump off and observe your Kreepy Krauly. The seal should rest flat on the pool surface and the hose and tubes should be at a 45 degree angle. Adjust hose weights (as follows) one inch at a time until you get the proper balance. If you have a deep and shallow end, adjust to the deep end first.

The hose is too light if it raises toward the surface at a greater than 45 degree angle. Move the weights closere to the cleaner (one inch at a time). If the cleaner is closer to the pool floor, move the weights away from the cleaner.

Kreepy cleans the deep end great. It cleans the walls and bottom but will not venture up the slant to the shallow end

There are several things that could cause these automatic pool cleaners to have this problem. First, check the return line water flor and redirect it if necessary. Also, make sure that the hose is long enough to cover the entire pool without difficulty. Also, check the hose balance to make sure that it is correct.

KK moves back to the filter box and stays there. I basically have to grab the hose and pull the KK up to the shallow end and then it heads back down to the deep end right where it is attached to the filter...

When you say filter box I want to think your talking about your main drain. If this is the case you just need to shut down the suction to your drain, it is redundant at this point and the suction between the two will make the Kreepy stick to the drain. Hope this helpds.
