Stops midway on side of pool and although pulsating stops it stays there. If power is turned off momentarily it drops to bottom of pool and continues cleaning when power is switched back on.

Sounds like foot pad is worn, not allowing enough clearance to unit. Replace foot pad.

Why won't it sink to the bottom?


Air trapped in the unit. They do not float unless air is trapped. Turn upside down under water to relieve trapped air.

If it is an actual Kreepy Krawler that Pulsates and you have good suction then you should look k side and see if something is stuck inside the diaphragm or if the diaphragm is torn then it has to be replaced.

My creepy crawley will not pulsate, or does for 5 minutes then stops pulsating but keeps on sucking. I have read a few complaints and from what I can gather, I need to replace the flapper valve. What is...


ok first of all the flapper is located right in the center at the bottom of the creepy crawley. Pull it out of the pool turn it upside down and you can actually move it with your hands and it will feel like it loose and not really connected. Anyhow check in the mouth - opening for any kind of obstuction (leaves,twigs or anything foreign that may be causing it to fail. There can be something flopping around inside causing it to work sporadic or the flapper may need replaced however I doubt that. Next you need to check your circulation. Is there to much suction? this would cause it to stay in one spot and not move. Do you have an air leak causing the pump to lose prime and then regain it over and over? There are two ways you can check for air. At the pump basket - if you have a clear top can you see bubbles or on your return lines to the pool is there bubbles coming out? To much circulation and poor circulation can cause the creepy to do weird things. When was your filter last cleaned? Is there the required amount D.E. inside? Have you backwashed the filter at all? The last thing to check would be the hoses connected to the creepy crawley. Some hoses become loosly connected and start sucking air. Some hoses rub along the plaster continuously in the same spot causing holes. Although unlikely, poor water chemistry - chemical damage can cause hoses to deteriate over the years.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to submit any further questions you may have and I will be glad to answer them for you. Good Luck!!

Use Pool Pulse to ensure proper flow. It could feel ok on your hand, but you need very precise pressure to power these pool cleaners. If you are not familiar with how to use the Pool Pulse feature, take a look at the users manual below. They have a step by step guide to this feature.

Cleaner is floating on top of pool


First, remove all of the air from the cleaner head and stop all air from entering the pool2_bing.gif through the return lines. Also, if the head and hose are covered with bubbles, give the hose a good tug. This will release the air bubbles and allow the pool cleaner to settle son the bottom of the pool. Also, the cleaner head may actually be being lifted off the bottom of the pool by the hose or the pressure in the return lines. Make sure that the hose stays untangled and the pressure from the return lines is not too low (not enought pressure to power) or too high (too much pressure that cause the unit to lift off the floor).
