SOURCE: I have a 20X40 rectangular

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.

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?

Falls on its side


If these pool cleaners are leaning to one side, it is most likely a problem with your hose. First, make sure that you have the proper hose weights in the proper places. When the cleaner is setting flat on the bottom of the pool, it should be at a 45 degree angle against the pool floor. For this model, you should have two hose weights on the middle of the second hose section, 1 1/2 meters from the cleaner head. You might need to adjust the weights to get proper balance, but the cleaner should not fall on its side if it is in the correct resting position.

Why does my pool cleaner turn upside down? how can i fix it?


Try adjusting your hose weights to see if that corrects the problem. When your cleaner is resting on the bottom of the pool, it should be at 45 degree angle. If it is tilting back toward the hose, try moving the weights closer to the cleaner. If it is tilting forward, try moving the weights away from the cleaner. You might also need to add more hose weight. If the pool cleaner does not have enough weight to hold it down, it will float. You will also want to make sure that you have adequate water flow through the cleaner.

My kreppy crawly turns side ways and dosent correct its self


With this brand of pool cleaners, that is almost always going to be a problem with your hose balance. Turn your pump off and observe your Kreepy Krauly. The seal should rest flat on the pool surface and the hose and tubes should be at a 45 degree angle. Adjust hose weights (as follows) one inch at a time until you get the proper balance. If you have a deep and shallow end, adjust to the deep end first.

The hose is too light if it raises toward the surface at a greater than 45 degree angle. Move the weights closere to the cleaner (one inch at a time). If the cleaner is closer to the pool floor, move the weights away from the cleaner.

It sounds like your house weights need to be adjusted. When the pool cleaner is resting, it should always sit at a 45 degree angle on the bottom of the pool. If it stands up on the front side, try sliding the weight away from the cleaner head. You may need to make several small adjustments to get the balance right, but this is almost surely your problem. Here is a copy of the users manual if you want to read more about hose weights and balance:

With these pool cleaners, there is a simple test you can do to see if your cleaner is weighted correctly. Turn the pump off and observe. The hose balance is correct when the cleaner's seal rests flat on the pool floor and the drive tube makes a 45 degree angle with the floor. Adjust the hose weights one inch at a time as needed until the proper balance is achieved. If the hose is too light, or rises toward the furface at an angle greater than 45 degrees, move the weights closer to the cleaner or move the first two weights closer to each other. If the hose is too heavy, less than 45 degree angle, move the weights away from each other.

Krauly gets tangled in the hose constantly and will not untangle


With these pool cleaners, that is almost always going to be a problem with your hose balance. To determine if your balance is correct, turn off the pump and observe the cleaner. Hose balance is correct if the cleaner's seal rests flat on the pool floor and drive tubes make a 45 degree angle with the floor. If the hose rises toward the surface at an angle greater than 45 degrees, move the weights closer to the cleaner or move the first two weights closer to each other. If the hose sags at less than a 45 degree angle, move the weights away from the Kreepy Krauly or separate the first two weights away from each other.

My KK i just bought yesterday, and it wont stay on the bottom of the pool it works for about 10 mins then it starts to float we have moved the weights but that has not helped.We emptied all the water out...


Sometimes additional weighting is necessary. Check with the manufacturer for additional weight rings. the depth of your pool and the buoyancy of the KK is the likely reason. The weights are supposed to be distributed to cancel the bouyancy of the hose.
