I lent my tiger shark to my sister who has a kidney shaped pool, mine is rectangle. Is any reprogramming required since the pool shapes are different?

No. The unit 'learns' the pool based upon time recorded in the horizontal and vertical positions while cleaning. It will work, although perhaps not as well as in a rectangle-shaped pool, without any further action than dropping it in and powering it up.

The motor pack...

Was the store able to scan the motor to pull out operational info? Was it water tested prior to being returned to you? Perhaps the store will make accomodations to get it returned and repaired correctly?

My Kreepy has a Starfish seal on it. It is being used in a pebble tec pool. I bought it new less than a year ago. Here are my problems...The Kreepy is getting stuck by my stairs (they are more like...

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.

Kreepy bull shark gets stuck in the corners and stains (dark brown/black) the pool where it is stuck.

There are several things that you can do to prevent these pool cleaners from sticking at steps and corners. First, your return line water flow might be positioned incorrectly to force the cleaner toward the corners. Check for this and use the eyeball diverter valve to redirect the water flow if necessary. Make sure that your automatic regulator valve is installed properly and free of debris. Make sure that you have proper hose balance (the cleaner should set at a 45 degree angle to the pool bottom). Adjust the hose weights if necessary. You may need to add a wall climb restrictor or a ladder guard. If none of these correct the problem, consider adding the Thruster, which aids in random pattern coverage by automatically repositioning the hose to help free the cleaner from obstacles.

I have the same problem as well. There is nothing obstructing the the kreepy from sucking. This seems to be a general problem with the bull shark. I have gone to the pool places and without me telling them about my problem with the kreepy they told me what the problem is with the bull shark. My friend has the same problem with his. Mabe there is someone that work for kreepy crawly that knows how to solve this problem.

My tiger shark pool cleaner will run for about 30 sec. then shut off. how can i fix this problem?

The pool cleaners impeller may be clogged or jammed with debris. Check and clean if necessary. The brush rollers or drive tracks could also be stuck. Check for debris and remove. It is most likely one of these problems if it is shutting off after only seconds of running. If these don't seem to be the problem, I would check your power source.

Usually this can be fixed by redirecting thr returns in the pool down the wall or anywhere that will break up any currents in the pool.
