Kreepy Krauly has very little suction thru head but plenty thru hose


most all pool cleaners generate there motion with a thing called a venturi ! thats inside it usually moves a small propeller from the action of water being sucked hard thru the hose , on most the path to this "propeller" is different than that of pool debris , i suspect this alt path is part ways blocked , a simple way to clear is to connect garden hose to suction port of cleaner and force water Back in other direction other than that sometimes dissasembly is need to lube and clean hidden ports inside

I have a 20X40 rectangular liner pool and my kreepy krauly stays in the deep end of the pool. I think I need to adjust the weights. Where should the weights be placed?


The first weight from the cleaning head should be adjusted so the Kreepy sits flat on the floor with the system turned off. Then you can start moving the next weight until it starts climbing the hill to the shallow end. It may take a few times but if you get the weights set correctly it should work.

How do i disassimble and replace the flappers on the kreepy krauly pool cleaner..tks.. steve


Removing the flapper is pretty easy on these automatic pool cleaners. First, with the cleaner upside down, lift the lip of the foot pad and insert a flat-head screw driver along side one of the two tabs found on the baffle plate. Push the tab inward with the screwdriver until the baffle plate releases. Place a finger into the center opening of the baffle plate and pull up until it pops out. Then pull the flapper
out. You should be able to do this without removing the foot pad.

My Kreepy Krauly works for 10-15 minutes and then stops hammering and sits on the pool floor. I have replaced and checked parts and the pump runs well.


you may have a hose that allows air to get sucked in at times when the unit moves and the hose with crack is able to float to the surface and make contact with outside air. move hoses around and see if that helps you can also start from the closest connection at the suction port and lift the hose out of the water one section at a time hold it out of water for a moment and see if you notice any weird feeling or hear a slurping do this section by section until you get to the last hose section at kreepy head

My kreepy Krauly will start up and within 5 stops working.


If it is a year old, replace the flapper valve. Also check your water flow and make sure it is adequate. These units are subject to wear on the foot and flapper and these should be changed each season

Our KK. will work great for maybe 5 minutes, but then stops. It is still chugging, but does not move. Had this problem last summer and bought a new KK. Had the pool replumbed. Have put new gasket on leaf...


There are a couple of things that will cause Kreepy to not move. Basic things to look at to resolve this issue:
1. Check the Footpad, the very bottom part of the cleaner, there should be raised sections on the clear rubber ring. There should be texturing on those sections, should feel like a soft sandpaper. If the sections are smooth, that needs to be replaced.

2. Is the Seal flat on the pool surface? If not, you may need to move the first weight about 8 to 10 inches from the Swivel Head.

3. Does the cleaner stop moving in the same area? When your system is running, can you see the water "rippling across" the top of the water from the return lines? If so, the issue may be your return lines. The cleaner follows the hose, so where the hose floats the cleaner will follow. If the return lines are not allowing the hose to move, then the cleaner will stop moving. Pentair recommends that your return lines should be angled downward at a 4 to 7 o'clock angle, all going in the same direction. This will take a day, or so, to re-direct the flow of water in the pool. However, by moving the flow of water from the top, or toward the center of pool, to a downward circular movement will allow the hose to float freely around the pool.
