SOURCE: barrcuda inground pool cleaner flips over

Often when you are having this problem with automatic pool cleaners, it has to do with the hose. Make sure that you have plenty of slack in the hose to cover the entire pool. Also, make sure that you do not have any obstructions in the hose and that it is not tangled.

Too much suction does not move around pool seems to just **** to the bottom. have cleaned all leaves out of filter. makes the water exit area to the filter vibrate

It sounds like you could have an obstruction in the hose. Check the entire length of hose from the pool filter to the pool cleaner and make sure that nothing is causing a back up of pressure. If you don't see anything, it could be that this pool cleaners not compatible with a pool pump as strong as the one that you have.

My kreepy won't move about. Even though the hose is vibrating, it doesn't move about. I just bought new hose so that isn't the problem. I have an 18x36 inground pool. Where should the ring weights be...

With these pool cleaners, there is a simple test you can do to see if your cleaner is weighted correctly. Turn the pump off and observe. The hose balance is correct when the cleaner's seal rests flat on the pool floor and the drive tube makes a 45 degree angle with the floor. Adjust the hose weights one inch at a time as needed until the proper balance is achieved. If the hose is too light, or rises toward the furface at an angle greater than 45 degrees, move the weights closer to the cleaner or move the first two weights closer to each other. If the hose is too heavy, less than 45 degree angle, move the weights away from each other.

Has good suction but wont move

Is there a tile stuck in the condom shaped diaphram when you look into the cleaner from underneath. Could be any kind of rubbish make sure you look deep inside as debris gets stuck right at the top.
This diaphram is removable check also that it does not have a hole in it.

My baracuda G3 stop working is not pulsating and therefore not moving. I checked the suction and the hoses even the diaphram everything looks ok.

If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.

Zodiac G4 will not move

Verify nothing is stuck inside the vacuum. Try adjusting your intake valves to reduce flow from your skimmer(s) and increase flow from the vacuum. Also, how old is the diaphragm inside the vacuum? Inspect it for rips and tears. Also, check the flex hose for rips and tears as well.

We have no suction in our vaccuum line. we have

some plumbing situations allow you to close a valve or two off in front of the pump...(suction side) check and make sure the obvious, (that the cleaner line is not closed)... next if its possible to shut down say the main drain and leave the skimmer open....doing this will allow the pump to pull from one source and therefore pull harder from that one source....therefore moving a vacuum.... the navigators are notorious for breaking down and needing special attention due to the multitude of moving parts in them
