    Does your pool have a booster pump? if so, a polaris 280 will work beautifully. If not, then i would suggest a leaf master. It is light, and works off of a regular water hose so you never have to worry about battery charge or anything.

Wont move in pool or very slow or stands on end

There are several things that could cause slow or non movement. I would first check your water pressure to be sure that it is correct. Make sure that your filter and any leaf or debris baskets are clear. If something is clogged, it will decrease your water flow and cause a lack of movement in the pool cleaner. Also, make sure there is not a blockage in the cleaner's throat. Finally, make sure that your cleaner's shoes and wings are not worn. If they are showing any signs of wear and tear, they are probably not allowing the cleaner to seal to the pool floor. Replace them and see if that corrects the problem.

The machine we have has good suction but will not at all move.Tried moving the feet but won't go.Need help on this one

Hayward Navigator has many moving parts that when disturbed can cause movement to slow, be sporadic, or even stop all together. Very often the problem is just a leaf, rock, or other debris causing the impeller not to spin. You can remove the access cover (the small square access plate on the bottom) with one screw and see inside the cleaner much better. other possibilities can be the turbine bearings, a-frame bearings, worn turbine cam, etc. If you don't find a simple solution, bring the cleaner to local pool shop. If they are a reputable company they will Inspect the cleaner for free and replace any parts you buy for free as well. Good Luck!

My Robo Kleen motor is running but the wheels do not move. Please let me know what I can do?

There is a plastic gear in the drive motor that has a pin that goes through it and the drive shaft, this pin actually wears a slot in it from going back and forth and stops driving the unit.
You can probably hear the driver motor cycling forward and reverse.
i have photos of a modification to fix this

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.

unscrew the lock ring and pull, the lid should come off with the lock ring. If not, line up the notches in the ring with the slots on the lid and pull. You should then be able to access the basket to clean it.

It won;t **** the leaves-no pressure

These automatic pool cleaners are designed with leaf removal in mind, so you should not be having this problem. First, make sure that the filter is clean. Also, make sure the impeller is free of obstructions. Occasionally, hair, leaves, etc. might jam the impeller. Also check for obstructions in the hose.

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.

Our KK. will work great for maybe 5 minutes, but then stops. It is still chugging, but does not move. Had this problem last summer and bought a new KK. Had the pool replumbed. Have put new gasket on leaf...

There are a couple of things that will cause Kreepy to not move. Basic things to look at to resolve this issue:
1. Check the Footpad, the very bottom part of the cleaner, there should be raised sections on the clear rubber ring. There should be texturing on those sections, should feel like a soft sandpaper. If the sections are smooth, that needs to be replaced.

2. Is the Seal flat on the pool surface? If not, you may need to move the first weight about 8 to 10 inches from the Swivel Head.

3. Does the cleaner stop moving in the same area? When your system is running, can you see the water "rippling across" the top of the water from the return lines? If so, the issue may be your return lines. The cleaner follows the hose, so where the hose floats the cleaner will follow. If the return lines are not allowing the hose to move, then the cleaner will stop moving. Pentair recommends that your return lines should be angled downward at a 4 to 7 o'clock angle, all going in the same direction. This will take a day, or so, to re-direct the flow of water in the pool. However, by moving the flow of water from the top, or toward the center of pool, to a downward circular movement will allow the hose to float freely around the pool.
