Check to see that the hose weights are attached. There should be a weight in the middle of the fist 3 sections of hose from the cleaner.

Hurlcon pool pump. Lack of pressure. Creepy crawley will not pulsate. Pump working at 110 pressure - no change. Checked all joints with soapy water.

When you mention the 110 pressure with no change are you saying that the pump is operating at the same level as before and the Kreepy was functional with this level of pressure before? If this is the case then your problem is with the Kreepy itself. This sounds like something is in the Kreepy Krawly line or the unit itself. Many things can become lodged in the unit like acorns, bottle caps, or simply there is a leak in the vacuum hose. I would investigate the unit for impeding debris.

The first thing to do is check all your hoses for cracks or holes. With the system running slowley pull the hoses across the surface of the pool and listen for air sucking into the hoses.

My creepy crawley will not pulsate, or does for 5 minutes then stops pulsating but keeps on sucking. I have read a few complaints and from what I can gather, I need to replace the flapper valve. What is...

ok first of all the flapper is located right in the center at the bottom of the creepy crawley. Pull it out of the pool turn it upside down and you can actually move it with your hands and it will feel like it loose and not really connected. Anyhow check in the mouth - opening for any kind of obstuction (leaves,twigs or anything foreign that may be causing it to fail. There can be something flopping around inside causing it to work sporadic or the flapper may need replaced however I doubt that. Next you need to check your circulation. Is there to much suction? this would cause it to stay in one spot and not move. Do you have an air leak causing the pump to lose prime and then regain it over and over? There are two ways you can check for air. At the pump basket - if you have a clear top can you see bubbles or on your return lines to the pool is there bubbles coming out? To much circulation and poor circulation can cause the creepy to do weird things. When was your filter last cleaned? Is there the required amount D.E. inside? Have you backwashed the filter at all? The last thing to check would be the hoses connected to the creepy crawley. Some hoses become loosly connected and start sucking air. Some hoses rub along the plaster continuously in the same spot causing holes. Although unlikely, poor water chemistry - chemical damage can cause hoses to deteriate over the years.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to submit any further questions you may have and I will be glad to answer them for you. Good Luck!!

My creepy crawley has to much suction and gets stuck in one spot is there a way of turning the suction down

Attenuate your skimmer valve slowly to reduce the suction until the cleaner runs smoothly across the bottom of the pool. If you do not have a skimmer valve I would recommend installing an inline PVC valve in the suction hose close to the skimmer so that it is accessible. Close the valve slowly until proper suction is achieved.

My zodiac is pulsating, diaphragm is clean but it stays in one place>??

It sounds like you might need to adjust the pool cleaners water pressure. You need to use your flow gauge and check it. Keeping the hose submerged, attach the flow gauge to the hose and turn on the pump. Verify that the red indicator in the gauge (viewed from the side) is at the Number 3 setting. If you flow is low, verify that valves controlling the suction lines are in the correct position.

My Kreepy Krauly doesnt want to ****

With these pool cleaners, your problem if going to be an air leak. You need to find and correct the air leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to ensure that there are no leaks. Check your vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Check your pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing o-rings.

Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner only clean one pool side because strong jet don't let move to other side

If you don't have directonal eyeballs on your jet's you can get a dirveter for the jet that will push the water down the wall rather than out into the pool. Get these at your local pool store. Baracuda and Kreepy Krawlie both make them.

Kreepy Krauly In-Ground Pool Cleaner: my creepy crawler wont hammer...

This usually happens when there is a small stick jambing in the bottom of the openning in the Kreepy Krauly where it sucks in the water and rubbish. It is the rubber tube that has a ****, usually something is jambed in the **** to prevent it from thumping.
