I have a G3 and it will work for a few minutes and then stop. There is plenty of suction, so i am not sure what to do. It came with the house i bought a few years ago. I have the hoses and the G3 without the directions. Any help would be appreciated.

This sounds like a bad diapraham, These can be gotten at your local pool store and if you bring the head with they can install it at the same time. They can ck the unit for you at this time but if you have good suction and flow this is probally your problem.

G3 head makes humming sound & doesn't move, why?


There is either debris in the diaphragm or the diaphragm is worn out.

It's the yellow flexible part that creates the pulsing action for this vac.

Zodiac G3 stopped traveling even though there is good suction.


There are several things that you can check on these pool cleaners if you are sure that the suction is not a problem. Normally, I would start by suggesting you check for blockages and obstructions in the cleaner, filter, and skimmer. However, if you are getting the correct suction, this shouldn't be a problem. I would also check the diaphragm for damage. To adjust a worn diaphragm, loosen the cassette swivel, gently push down on the the inner pipe, and retighten the cassette swivel. Check all hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

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.

Check your pool cleaners hose to make sure that it is not becoming tangled. Storing the hose in a coiled position will cause this. If it is not moving and it is not the hose, you could have a leak in a connection somewhere. If the cleaner is getting adequate suction, it should be moving. Try adjust the hose weights to make sure the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle to the pools floor.

I have a Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas II (1.5hp) Pool pump and a Hayward Navigator sweep. The sweep was working then stopped. Pulled it apart found bad bearings replaced them. Ran sweep again worked at first...


Is the pump leaking water? If you lost the prime or are having trouble priming then there would be an air leak somewhere on the suction side of the pump. Poor suction would interfere with the sweep. One way to ell if the pump or suction line(s) are leaking is to examine the inlet basket once the pump is primed. Any air left in there after a few minutes of operation once primed would indicate a leak in the suction/pump.

Zodiac Barracuda stops moving


Depending how you hook it up to the pool you need to be sure it is getting enough suction. If this is a dedicated line be sure that the valve is going all to the cleaner and back off till the pump quiets down. If you have it running through the skimmer be sure the dirveter valve is set to the proper suction and if you have a skimmer plate be sure your main drain is plugged off. Also check in the cleaner again. Things can hide in the diaprahm so be sure to use something that will let you go all the way beyond it or take apart to check if you have to. Good luck.
