If it has never worked properly, it could be that your pump and filter system are too small for this particular automatic pool cleaner. If you don't feel that this is the case, there a few things that you can check. Make sure that there is not debris in the flapper. It could be causing a loss of suction, making the pool cleaner rise off the floor of the pool. Also, check your water flow coming from your return line. It could be too high. You can adjust it with an eyeball diverter if necessary.

First, check for debris in the pool cleaners flapper. This can cause a lack of suction the floor. Also, check for proper hose balance. If the hose rests at a greater than 45 degree angle, the hose is too light and you need to move the hose weights closer to the cleaner. If the hose rests at a less than 45 degree angle, you need to move the weights away from the cleaner.

Had the unit been running okay before? It sounds like a water flow issue. (not enough water being pulled through the head) Check for leaks in the hose, verify pump is fully functioning and filter pressure is not high.

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.

Hi, I also bought my Bull Shark Kreepy Krauly recently - 3 months ago. Since day 1 it liftes up at the end and does not move flat on the surface of the swimming pool. Please assist.

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.

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.

Our kreepy krauly will not stay suctioned to the bottom of the pool. What can we do?


Check for air leaks in your hoses, your pump or in the plumbing system. Also check for clogs in your pump impeller if you have any problems with your basket. Good luck.

Hi my kreepy krauly wont stay flat on the bottom of the pool???


Do you have any hose weights fitted to the kreepy hose? If you do,take it off and see if it makes a difference.Is this happening while the kreepy is operating?
