Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

Our Pentair Great White pool cleaner barely moves and sticks on the drain.

The brush does move up and down and the tested pressure is excellent. Could it be an internal gear or other part on the inside that is broken? Model # GW9500. Never traveled to the shallow end as much as we would have liked, but based on the reviews prior to purchase we expected that - no problem, but at least it kept the deep end clean and moved around well. Pulsing sound is still as strong, so we are baffled? - Thank you

SOURCE: brush not moving in Bissell pro-heat

if the belt is more then 6 months old or more, then the belt will have to be replaced reguardless of the way it lookes. belts can stretch over time and when you put the machine on the carpet the friction causes the brush to stop because the belt has stretched. i would try this first. hope this helps

My great white pool clearner is not moving in the pool what might be the problem?

There are several thing that you can check. Be sure that both the filter pump and booster pump
are on and working properly. They might need to be cleaned. Also, check the wall fitting screen for debris and rinse clean. Test your pool cleaners wheel RPM and make sure that it is in the desirable level of 28-32. Make sure that your back-up valve is cycling. Check all the hose connections and
swivels for leaks that can cause loss of water pressure.

The cleaner stands on front wheels and barely moves.

With these pool cleaners, there are several things you will want to try. Check the filter screen in the in line filter and the skimmer basket, pump basket, and pool filter. Clean any if necessary. Make sure that all hoses, connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. Make sure that your wheel RPM is correct. Make sure that your thrust jets are positioned correctly and that you have proper waterflow.

My Pentair legend pool cleaner is not moving

On this automatic pool cleaner, this is usually an easy thing to fix. First, make sure that your filter bag is clean and free of obstructions. Next, take of your head float and shake it. If you can hear water inside, you will need to order a new head float and install it. They are usually inexpensive and easy to replace. Make sure the hose floats are evenly placed and make sure that the cleaner is not getting too much pressure from the return lines.

Even with good pressure the cleaner barely moves

If you are sure that you have adequate pressure (main drain closed, no leakage, proper flow), it is probably your diaphragm. Check the diaphragm for damage or wear. If you see that there is damage or wear, replace the part. This should solve the problem with the pool cleaner.

Pentair Great White pool cleaner not walking

Make sure that your automatic pool cleaner is getting the proper pressure from the return lines to move the wheels. Also, make sure that the filter bag is clean and the the impellers are free. Both of these can restrict movements. You might also want to check your hose and make sure that there are not blockages/knots/etc.
