Question about Generic Intex 26 x 52" Ultra Frame Metal-Walled Swimming Pool

2 Answers

Bought new pool and the ladder has the wrong legs one set of steps is inverted and dangerous to climb. Pool also needs a tubing from pool to filter machine. Just bought 26" Intex on

When I assembled the pool the ladder had one set of steps that work fine but the back side is inverted due to the wrong poles being sent with pool. Also pool needs tubing from pool to filter machine. How do I get these missing pieces?

If the cleaner is getting stuck on objects (steps, ladder, corners, benches, etc), you need to remove the dive float restrictor and install a wall climb adjuster. It is part number K12065. Anyone that sells Pentair products should have one. This will keep your pool cleaner from becoming stuck. It might also help with the seal problem, but that is most likely something caught in the flapper. Check to be sure that the pool cleaners getting proper flow and that the flapper is clear of debris.

There won't be any structural problems and you will notice the difference more than anyone else. If you redo the pool next year it will help to set each leg on a patio brick so it won't settle.

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.

I put the eyeball diverter on my pool and the cleaner runs up to it and the hose hangs on it. I keep my hose laying out strait when not in use. It does seem to stay on the sides also.

If the eyeball diverter is not working, you might need to install a wall climb adjuster (Part #K12065). This will keep the automatic pool cleaner on the pool's floor and walls and away from pool obstructions. Make sure the narrow end of the wall climb adjuster points down to the drive tubes.

Aquavac Tiger shark won't operate

The power supply powers on even when it doesn't output any voltage, so it's kind of misleading. You should have the power supply checked or you can do it yourself if you have a multi-meter, by measuring the output and making sure there is 24V.

Sounds like your impeller is clogged, you might be able to remove the pump basket and feel inside the impeller to see it it's impacted with debris. You may have to pull apart the pump to clean it thoroughly.

We bought new feet for the navigator and put them on and it won't climb the walls we tried to to change the seetings to number 3 and it still won't climb.

you'll need to increase the suction so it will climb. If it used to climb before and now it won't, even with new feet, it may be a bearing problem with either the turbine or the A-frames. You may have to get a turbine kit with a-frames to make it work like new again.

Ref: Sta-Rite Max-E 400. Pool temp is about 75

Your temp sensor has gone bad and will need to be replaced. It's a small tube that slides into the water manifold and you can follow the wires back to the board. Just unplug and set a new one in place.
