Lay out hose straight as possible in water and see if hose has "memory" to twist one way or other , this causes swimmers to turn over , also ck speed if it's over (point) .5 inch per second then swimmer is set too fast , slow setting

A coupe of things you can try. Either add one hose length or take one off. If that doesn't help, you can reverse the hose positions.(take the first one off, and put it last. Change all of them) Also, changing the amount of suction may help.

Baracuda pacer is moving to fast


There is a regulator available that fits on the end of the hose in the skimmer. The more suction the wider the valve opens maintaining a consistent flow through the hose. Part #W60050 about $30

My baracuda classic falls on its side and stays that way being useless on the bottom of the pool. How do I solve this?


This information applies to a Baracuda G4 model only. My G4 would climb the wall at the deep end, lose suction, fall to the bottom of the pool and invariably land on its side or back.

The problem was the blue egg shaped buoy, as its called. Mine had signs of wear and there was even a hole in it. I replaced it and the G4 now works fine.

Baracuda stopped working. it is not vibrating but


Could be a small rock or stick stuck in the diaprahm. If you pull the head you can look down both ends, use a ling stick or wire to clear or take the unit apart to find and clear this.

Our cleaner works for 5-10 minutes and then does not work anymore..we replaced the diaphram, cleaned the filter, etc (G3)


Since you've already replaced the diaphragm, it sounds like a filter problem. Try acid washing the filter and see if that solves your problem. A suction gauge is supplied with the cleaner and you can compare readings when working or not. If reading goes down, it's a filter problem If it stays the same it's a cleaner problem. Could be a crack someplace on cleaner housing.

Flips over


There is a float in the body of the cleaner that keeps it upright. Uour pool store will have this and can change it for you also.

Baracuda G4 won't clean whole pool. goes to a corner and stays


Maybe your hose needs to be reprogrammed by unhooking and lying it in the sun for several hours.
