You have an air leak. Check the lid oring, pull the plug on the bottom of the pump pot (where the pump basket is) and reseal with tephlon tape. Also check pipe going into pump for leaks. If you shut pump off and water squirts out or drips from the pipe it is not sealing.

If it is a year old, replace the flapper valve. Also check your water flow and make sure it is adequate. These units are subject to wear on the foot and flapper and these should be changed each season

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.

Kreepy pleated seal keeps coming off


Does the Kreepy have its foot pad attached? This is the boot that pulls onto the end of the housing and makes contact with the pool surface where the debris goes in. (Part # k12059). The pleated seal should not be able to get past that part.

Kreepy kraully not cleaning complete pool


If the pool hose has been connected to the Kreepy Krauly in the one position for a long time, the pool hose gets set is a position so the kreepy Krauly travels ith same path all the time. Try rotating the pool hose 90 degrees and or change the angle of the hose connector in the skimmer box.

Kreepy Krauly is not staying sealed to pool surface but is cleaning


Check to make sure that you do not have debris in your flapper than could cause the lack of seal. If something gets lodged in the flapper of these pool cleaners, this problem can occur. As long as it is still cleaning, you shouldn't have any major problems.

My Kreepy Krauly works for 10-15 minutes and then stops hammering and sits on the pool floor. I have replaced and checked parts and the pump runs well.


you may have a hose that allows air to get sucked in at times when the unit moves and the hose with crack is able to float to the surface and make contact with outside air. move hoses around and see if that helps you can also start from the closest connection at the suction port and lift the hose out of the water one section at a time hold it out of water for a moment and see if you notice any weird feeling or hear a slurping do this section by section until you get to the last hose section at kreepy head
