The sweep tail doesnt sweep

Make sure the opening at the end of the sweep hose is not blocked by the sweep hose scrubber. You might also need to adjust the screw that holds the sweep hose in place. If it is too tight it will not have the slack to move. If it is too loose, it will not have enough tension to move. Try adjusting it and it should have the pool cleaners sweep hose motion.

If the sweep hose is laying on the side and not sweeping, you will need to adjust the screw that holds it on to get it to a gentle sweeping motion. It is also possible that you have too much hose weight on the pool cleaners sweep hose. Try removing some of the weight and seeing if that changes.
