SOURCE: my pump pressure is 10psi i cleaned the de filters they seem fine i have good floe out of my jets but when i hook the pool cleaner up pressure drops to almost nothing. could my impeller be the problem

The pressure you are reading is the pressure in the filter tank as water is pumped though it. When the filter is freshly charged, 9 PSI is a good pressure.

As the filter removes particles from the water the filter gets "dirty" -- it takes more pressure to push the water through it thus raising the PSI.

I think you are viewing this in reverse. Low filter pressure is "good" (as long as it stays above 8 PSI) -- as the filter cleans the water the PSI will increase -- when it gets to 15-20 PSI it needs to be back-washed and recharged.

The pressure drops when the pool cleaner is connected because pool cleaners always pull in air (in varying amounts) because of all the hose connections. This causes your filter/tank pressure to drop.

Exactly where is the pump leaking?
If it is leaking between the wet end and the motor then you need a new shaft seal sometimes referred to as a mechanical seal.
You will need to know the brand of your pump when you start searching for the replacement.

Kreepy is making lots of movement noise and is sucking on to pool bottom but not moving

Ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which you automatic pool cleaner is attached. Check for debris in the filter or pump basket and the flapper. Flapper debris could be causing a loss of seal to the pool floor.

Baracuda runs for about 5 minutes and then stops sucking

I would first check your filter and pump to make sure that they are clean and free of debris. Also, check the pool cleaners Star Control setting to make sure that it is in the yellow range. The cleaner could be getting improper flow. You might also need to replace the diaphragm.

Can u hookup hayward Aquabug to intex above ground pool without disconnecting existing filter? Will both filters work at the same time? I would like to clean the top of the pool at the same time I clean...

You Aquabug pool cleaner works WITH your pools filter. You much connect the cleaner to your filter system and the filters suction is what powers the cleaner. Since they operate together, you should always run your filter while you are cleaning, but it will never operate in its normal capacity since you are using it for a different purpose. Here is a copy of the users manual if you have any questions about how the cleaner works.

My aqua bug does not stay on the floor of the pool it comes off of the floor and gets pulled around the pool by the hose and i hav submerged it in water before hooking it up

If the pool cleaner is not staying properly sealed to the floor, it is very possible that it is a problem with the water flow. Make sure that you have adequate flow (clean all of your baskets, filter, and throat of the cleaner). You will also want to make sure the the pool cleaners shoes and wings are not worn or damaged. Replace them if necessary.

Labels Gone

I also have the same problem with the label on my filter. My pool dealership said I would need deal with Wicor directly. I see two other people with the same problem, however, neither has been responded to. It is VERY difficult to run your pool properly if you don't have your control lever labeled. An immediate response would be greatly appreciated.

Pentair Great White pool cleaner not walking

Make sure that your automatic pool cleaner is getting the proper pressure from the return lines to move the wheels. Also, make sure that the filter bag is clean and the the impellers are free. Both of these can restrict movements. You might also want to check your hose and make sure that there are not blockages/knots/etc.

Is it a jetvac? you said the bag does not stand up, I'm sure it is a pressure cleaner, the pump maybe no good or your pool pump is not providing anough water for the pressure pump. Check every thing, hair and lint pot on pool pump should be full, clean filter.
