You need to adjust the suction down on the cleaner. This type of cleaner only needs about 10lbs of vacuum pressure

SOURCE: Our Zodiac Barracuda pool cleaner isn't working

you may have a bad diaphragm inside the unit. Unthread the nut between the "wagon wheel" and the lower unit and remove it, push down on the white tube until it comes out of the bottom of the barracuda. Inspect the rubber diaphragm for debris and deformations. If the diaphragm has a large gap inside, it won't work properly. It needs to have only a small uniform gap, they can sometimes even look completely closed when they are new. Replacing the diaphragm will most likely make the unit run like new again.

SOURCE: Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner hose tear

I haven't seen any bulletins on the Zippy hoses. You might adjust the flow to the cleaner. You can find the Manual for the zippy cleaner on this page beneith the diagram. It shows how the star control works. You can also contact the Mfg Technical Support at Phone: 800-822-7933 They might be able to warranty a hose or two for you.

SOURCE: Cleaner does not climb walls

First of all do you have enough suction? The cleaner originally should have come with a suction gauge. If not the local pool store will have one. How old is your cleaner? When the G3 and G4 cleaners gets over a year or two a number of things wear out and effect the performance. Inspect the diaphragm especially next to and under the small retaining ring and make sure there are no holes or tears. If the diaphragm is over a year old they sometimes get too spongy and effect performance. Also the small rubber pad that holds the large pad can get worn down and stick to the floor and wall. As parts wear down you can get play or slop between the large disc, the small pad, and the foot plate that snaps all the disc to the body. Also the rear cassette where the hose connects gets slop there as well. all of this slop, especially when combined can make the cleaner performance lack greatly. very common to have a cleaner not climb the walls or reach the far end of pool as it once did

G4 keeps heading for and climbing the sides of the pool, always making a long run along the side walls of the pool. The bottom is not being cleaned. Have adequate lenght of hose. Diaphram has no holes....


If these pool cleaners are staying on the edge on the pool, there are two things that you can do to correct the problem. First, reduce the flow through the cleaner to the low side of the ideal range. Second, add a hose weight about 3 feet from the cleaner's head. That should correct the issue.

Barracuda climbing walls almost to be out of the pool. Sometimes I think it is high enough to **** air.


There are several adapters on the market to allow more water to bypass the cleaner. One is called the Vac-Mate, another is the Hayward skimmer adapter. I personally like the vac-mate. but it's only compatible with most skimmers.

Having problems with my KK keeps climbing the pool wall and sucking air, I've tried changing the length of the suction tube but it still wall walks. Any ideas ?


Check to ensure the pool cleaners dive float mechanism is operating freely and the dive float restrictor is installed. Check the automatic regulator valve for its proper installation and ensure it is not clogged
with debris. Make sure the water level is at least 3 inches below the pool deck. Finally, be sure that the cleaner is operating at the proper speed of 8-12 feet per minute..

My cleaner works for a few minutes, climbs a wall and rolls over onto it's head.


If the problem always occurs when the pool cleaner starts to climb walls, there are a few things that you will want to check. First of all, if your pool has a vinyl liner, this pool cleaner has limited climbing ability. You need to check the flow of water through the cleaner with your flow gauge. It might be low. If it is, increase the water flow. Also, make sure that your hose weight positioning is correct. The cleaner should sit at a 45 degree angle at the bottom of the pool when resting when the weights are right.

The barracuda just returns to the deep end of the pool and stays there, how can I get the cuda to sweep the whole pool?


The Barracuda Zippy is an Above Ground pool cleaner and is not designed for a pool that does not have a flat bottom. They are generally not capable of climbing slopes, walls, etc.

Barracuda Pacer comes right up the side and above waterline then sucks so much air, pump has to be reprimed. Really annoying


You just need to slow the cleaner down and dirvert some suction away from it. It should never really come anymore than 1/3 the way up the wall.
