Question about Zodiac Baracuda G4 Automatic Pool Cleaner Ne221

1 Answer

I bought a Zodiac Barracuda Genius pool cleaner in 2012. Problem is that connecting hoses are breaking apart causing zero suction. The hoses are merely unwinding into strips of plastic. Where can I get decent suction pipes ?

No suction on my baracuda pool cleaner


There are several things that you will want to try if you are not getting adequate suction on these pool cleaners. First and foremost, make sure that you are getting proper water flow to the cleaner. If you are not, the cleaner will not move until the water flow is increased. Clean your baskets and your filter and make sure that they are clear of debris and blockages. Also, make sure that you do not have any leaks in your hoses and connections. Any leakage of air will cause the cleaner not to move correctly.

Water circulation is OK. barracuda g3 does not pulsate, hoses are clear


If the cleaner is not pulsating, then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. Your cleaner should have come with a suction gauge that you put on the end of the hose in place of the cleaner. It's a clear tube with a spring and plastic piece inside that indicates high, low, or normal. Use this to check your suction. If you don't have one see if you can get one at the local pool supply house, they may even have one you can borrow. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

My baracuda is not moving....I took it apart and nothing is caught inside. The filters arer clean. I adjusted suction as well with no results


Is it pulsating? If not then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. you said it was not clogged so check closely for tears. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. If this doesn't solve the problem let me know, these cleaners are very straight forward. Good luck!

Has good suction but wont move


Is there a tile stuck in the condom shaped diaphram when you look into the cleaner from underneath. Could be any kind of rubbish make sure you look deep inside as debris gets stuck right at the top.
This diaphram is removable check also that it does not have a hole in it.

Good suction, no blockage in hose but very little vibration and it does not move. Cannot see anything but daylight through the cleaner itself. Help!


With cleaner underwater, check suction at bottom of cleaner. If good, then remove diaphragm and check for a rip or tear. If suction low at pump and good at skimmer, check the hoses.

The zodiac works for seveal minutes, then the pool pressure goes down and the zodiac stops. when i remove the vac hose from the vac intake the pool pressure returns. i hav cleared the zodiac and ck each...


sounds like you may have an air leak somewhere. If not from your zodiac hose, it may be in the plumbing itself. Check the threaded fitting on the suction side of the pump, check the pump lid o-ring, and depending on the pump, check the gasket between the hair/lint pot and the volute or seal plate (especially if it's a sta-rite).

Barracuda not bouncing or moving to clean pool


Check suction at cleaner. Could be broken hose, bad or dirty impeller, incorrectly set valves, dirty filter, clogged line and probably a bunch more things.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.


I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
