Interesting question. Do you have the special Lead Hose, the one with a colored cuff attached to the Navigator itself? Other causes can be, too little or too much hose, a pinhole leak in one of the hoses above water causing the hoses to float, not enough suction on the Navigator. You didn't say if you have the Navigator plugged into a skimmer or in a dedicated suction port in the wall. I would first try increasing the suction to the unit and see if your problem doesn't go away.

I HAVE HAYWARD NAVIGATOR POOL CLEANER. MY HOSE TWIST UP WHEN IN USE.


With these pool cleaners, it might not be the hose. It could be that your cleaner head has water and is floating, causing the hose to tangle. Check for that problem. If not, it could be that your hose is too long for the pool size that you have. You might need to remove sections on the hose to shorten it.

With these automatic pool cleaners, this is a pretty common problem with newer models and one that is usually an easy fix. First make sure that you are getting the proper amount of water flow and that it is consistent. Too much water flow can cause the cleaner to rise to the surface during cleaning. Make sure that you have proper tension in the rear flap. Too much tension could cause it to float. Make sure that all air is removed from the cleaner head. Make sure that the hose is not becoming tangled and that the return lines are functioning properly.

My pool navigator will not stay at the bottom its always coming to the top to clean and hovers there.


if by saying at the top you mean running around the top of the walls then reduce the suction on the vacuum by opening another valve slightly... if by at the top you mean floating around in the water then make sure the vacuum is getting enough suction.... it can be a number of issues causing loss of suction but most likely is going to be too many sources on suction side of pump.

Hayward Navigator sort of floating around by the movement of the water...does not climb walls. Line has suction not sure if its too weak


I consulter the owners manual for this model. This is what they suggest.

First, remove all of the air from the cleaner head and stop all air from entering the pool through the return lines. Also, if the head and hose are covered with bubbles, give the hose a good tug. This will release the air bubbles and allow the pool cleaners to settle son the bottom of the pool. Also, the cleaner head may actually be being lifted off the bottom of the pool by the hose or the pressure in the return lines. Make sure that the hose stays untangled and the pressure from the return lines is not too low (not enought pressure to power) or too high (too much pressure that cause the unit to lift off the floor).

Sweeper does not reach end of pool


Check your returns. They may be getting a flo going in the pool that keeps the cleaner from getting to one end. Usually this is due to the current pushing the floating hose around pool. To fix this simply aim the returns down into the pool rather up on the surface. It sounds like you have enough hose. I hope this helps you good luck.

Hayward phantom will not float fully to the surface


If it has skimmed the top of the pool before try rearranging sections of the hose and make sure all sections of hose can rotate freely.
