Question about Zodiac BARRACUDA G3 IN-GRND CLEANER

1 Answer

Should there be a hole in the side of the G3 diaphram?

There is suction, but it doesn't move along the bottom. I took it apart and noticed an opening on the side of the diaphram. Would that be causing my problem?

No, a common place for cracks is near the top next to the plastic ring that holds the diaphram to the tube. this is a common problem with the G3 and G4 diaphrams. other cracks and holes near the center are usually caused by objects that get picked up and stuck or old age.
too much suction and/or use will shorten the life of the diaphram. along with bad water chemistry

My g3 is not working, took it to pool store and they replaced diaphram, but still not hopping or moving, suction is good but now movement.


There are a couple things to check with these pool cleaners when they stop moving. Use Pool Pulse to insure proper flow through the cleaner. Clean baskets and filter to ensure that you are not clogged. Check hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

any damage to that diaphram will cause the cleaner to not work. If it is only 6 months old then it is under warranty. any pool store should be able to get you a new diaphram at no cost. bring your paperwork with you to show proof of purchase.

My baracuda is not moving....I took it apart and nothing is caught inside. The filters arer clean. I adjusted suction as well with no results


Is it pulsating? If not then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. you said it was not clogged so check closely for tears. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. If this doesn't solve the problem let me know, these cleaners are very straight forward. Good luck!

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.

either some debris is caught in the diaphragm or it's deformed enough to render it inoperable. Unthread the nut just above the handle and pull it apart, then push the white tube downward until it comes out of the bottom of the unit. Inspect the diaphragm to see it there is any debris in it or if it is deformed. Usually the diaphragm has a uniform opening, if the gap is wide, it will not function. The most common problem is that the diaphragm needs replaced. Hope this helps.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.


I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
