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.

Hi, we have a Zodiac pool creepy crawly pool cleaner which seems to work for a while, then get stuck in the one spot and not move in our inground pool.


With these pool cleaners, getting stuck in one spot is most likely the result of a waterflow problem. Check your water flow valve and make sure that it is adjusted correctly. make sure that you don't have any blockage that would prevent movement and cause the cleaner to stick in one place. This might seem like common sense, but make sure that you have enough hose to reach the entire pool. Many times, when this occurs, the cleaner cannot reach one part of the pool. make sure that your hose balance is correct also.

Pool cleaner working very eratic , stop /starts


you probably need to replace the diaphragm, unthread the nut directly beneath the wagon wheel, press the white tube downward and inspect the rubber diaphragm for damage or deformity. this is the most common problem with the Zodiac Pacer.

Barracuda Pacer comes right up the side and above waterline then sucks so much air, pump has to be reprimed. Really annoying


You just need to slow the cleaner down and dirvert some suction away from it. It should never really come anymore than 1/3 the way up the wall.

Pacer does not run on INTEX pool pump, no pulsating action of diaphragm, pump sucking OK, Auto Weir Valve connected, pool 1,20m deep, round, 4,88m diameter


make sure to check the diaphragm inside, check for deformity or debris stuck in it. You can take the unit apart just below the wagon wheel and push the white tube downward to expose the diaphragm.
