I just installed my G3. It pulsates fine and actually goes backwards instead of forward. Is this correct. Also, it seems to keep on the same path and cleaning only the path it has already cleaned going...


It depends on what you call backwards. These do move in the direction of the hose, not opposite the hose. Try adjusting the hose weights per the installation manual and it should work fine for you.

My pool cleaner only sweeps the deep water zone. It never comes up to the shallow half part of the pool. By the way, the approximate size of my pool is 18 ft x 36 ft.


This should be an easy problem to fix with this type of automatic pool cleaner. Add return diverters or divert return inlets downward. This will use flow to move cleaner to opposite end. Move hose weight away from cleaner head slightly. You might also have to add additional hose weights.

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.

Water circulation is OK. barracuda g3 does not pulsate, hoses are clear


If the cleaner is not pulsating, then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. Your cleaner should have come with a suction gauge that you put on the end of the hose in place of the cleaner. It's a clear tube with a spring and plastic piece inside that indicates high, low, or normal. Use this to check your suction. If you don't have one see if you can get one at the local pool supply house, they may even have one you can borrow. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

I love the product and it's been amazing ever since I purchased it less than a year ago but my barracuda g3 ends up in the exact spot over and over into the stair which it gets trapped.


Here's a couple of things you can try.#1 First, change the direction of the jets in the pool. #2 Take the hoses out, lay them out flat and let them straighten out in the sun for a couple of hours. When you replace them, reverse the order they were in. #3 Try changing the amount of suction a little either way.(more or less). #4 Try adding one hose length. You can also try removing one.

My zodiac g3 does not cover the entire swimming pool


One of the most common problems with these pool cleaners is the hose. If the hose is not long enough, it will not cover the entire pool. You might need additional hose. Also, make sure that your hose is weighted correctly and the water pressure is correct.

Baracuda pool cleaner does not cover the entire pool


With these pool cleaners, there are several things that it could be. Check the return line water flow and redirect as necessary with an eyeball diverter. Make sure the automatic regulator valve is installed properly and is not clogged. Make sure the cleaner has proper hose balance.

Does not clean the whole pool


may need to re-weight it or add helpers.
I had to add a rope system to my pool to get the creepy crawly to all the spots.

Not the best fix - but keeps the pool clean.
