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.

SOURCE: My Kreepy has a Starfish

If the cleaner is getting stuck on objects (steps, ladder, corners, benches, etc), you need to remove the dive float restrictor and install a wall climb adjuster. It is part number K12065. Anyone that sells Pentair products should have one. This will keep your pool cleaner from becoming stuck. It might also help with the seal problem, but that is most likely something caught in the flapper. Check to be sure that the pool cleaners getting proper flow and that the flapper is clear of debris.

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.

sounds like something caused your water to precipitate scale. high pH or alkalinity coupled with an elevated calcium hardness may do that. make sure the footpad is in good shape, should have visible groves, if it's completely flat get a new footpad.

Can't get my creepy crawler to work in my pool, i have a purex triton filter system, i can't get any suction on from the crawler


It sounds like your automatic pool cleaner might have a leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to make sure that there are no leaks or cracks. Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Look and check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

I put the eyeball diverter on my pool and the cleaner runs up to it and the hose hangs on it. I keep my hose laying out strait when not in use. It does seem to stay on the sides also.


If the eyeball diverter is not working, you might need to install a wall climb adjuster (Part #K12065). This will keep the automatic pool cleaner on the pool's floor and walls and away from pool obstructions. Make sure the narrow end of the wall climb adjuster points down to the drive tubes.

You need to check in by the flapper for obstruction and check inside the tubes also. Provided the water flo is good. If this does not help you need to work backwards to the pump to look for the problem. Usually if you put a small sponge in the suction pipe and it does not come out in the pump basket then your problem is somewhere in the suction pipe.

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?
