My kreepy krauly wont clean the deep end of the swimming pool.


Your situation is unusual in that most of the time these will stay in the deep end and not get to the shallow end. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and the hose weights are in the right positions

Up to 4 feet water, 1 weight at one foot away from Kreepy
4-7 feet water, add a second weight at 6 feet from Kreepy
7-12 feet water add a third weight at 10 feet from Kreepy.

It can take some trial and error to get the Kreepy to cover the whole pool. This includes adding or removing hose sections, and adjusting the pool return "eyeballs" to different directions.

Question:

How do I close my pool for the season?

Step One - Debris & Chemicals
Remove any debris from pool water by use of a leaf rake attachment.
Add the appropriate amount of shock treatment to the pool water, as prescribed on the packaging.
Add the appropriate amount of algecide to the pool water, as prescribed on the packaging.
Run your filter for the appropriate time to circulate all water once.
(see your filter documentation for your size pool)
Install your floating Dispenser and winterizing tablets.

Step Two - Vacuum & Water Level
Vacuum your pool while setting your filter to the "back wash" or "waste" setting.
(this will help lower your water level)
After vacuuming, install the sump pump and drain pool to about 6 inches below your thru-the-wall skimmer.

Step Three - Parts Dissassembly & Cleaning
Disconnect all ladders, filter systems, hoses, solar reels and/or other accessories.
Using standard household cleansers, thoroughly clean all ladders, solar reels and/or other accessories.
Dissassemble filtration system.

Thoroughly clean all filter system parts.
Allow all items to dry.
Store all items in an area that will not be subject to freezing temperatures.

Step Four - Pillow & Cover Installation
Inflate all pool pillows or inner-tubes.
Install one pillow for every 15' of linear water surface.
(example: a 15' x 30' would require at least two pillows)
Tie pillows to pool area via nylon rope and place equally with respects to pool walls and each other.
(this is extremely important! This prevents freeze damage)
Install winter cover as prescribed by the covers manufacturer.

During the winter months, remove any excess snow from the winter cover.

Kreepy krauly wont move around the whole pool bottom


Kreepy's simplicity is one of its main benefits, but also creates a drawback in that there is little to do as far as any adjustments to improve coverage. It is mainly a trail and error process by adding or subtracting hose sections, and moving the hose weights around. Good luck with it.

My kreepy keeps coiling at the deep end of pool and stays there what do i need to do so that it cleans the whole pool?


There are a couple of things that you can try to get your pool cleaner to cover both ends of the pool. First, use an eyeball diverter to make sure that your water flow is correct to make the pool cleaner function in the proper pattern. Your return lines could be pushing the cleaner only toward your deep end. Secondly, if your hose is connected to your filter at the deep end of the pool, it could be that your hose is not long enough to cover the entire pool. You might need to add hose lengths. You will also want to adjust your hose weights.

I filled my pool with hard well water. I added salt, waited, then turned on salter system. Water is brown. Is this from the hard water? How can I correct this?


The brown water is from the well water used. For an average pool of 18x52 I would add 2-3 gallons of regular chlorine and filter filter filter
If you are using the pump that came with the intex pool you will want to blast the filter cartridge with the garden hose about every 12 hours so that your flow doesn't slow down too much

G4 keeps heading for and climbing the sides of the pool, always making a long run along the side walls of the pool. The bottom is not being cleaned. Have adequate lenght of hose. Diaphram has no holes....


If these pool cleaners are staying on the edge on the pool, there are two things that you can do to correct the problem. First, reduce the flow through the cleaner to the low side of the ideal range. Second, add a hose weight about 3 feet from the cleaner's head. That should correct the issue.

After two years of perfeft performance, the Legend Platinum start to misbehave. Whells runing at 23 to 25 RPM after cleaning the hose filter. Main pool filter runs at 23 psi, booster pump runs and pressur ...


If your RPM is low, you will need to increase pressure to the cleaner. If the sweep hose is laying on the side and not sweeping, you will need to adjust the screw that holds it on to get it to a gentle sweeping motion. It is also possible that you have too much hose weight on the pool cleaners sweep hose. Try removing some of the weight and seeing if that changes.
