My kreepy krauly wont clean the deep end of the swimming pool.


Your situation is unusual in that most of the time these will stay in the deep end and not get to the shallow end. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and the hose weights are in the right positions

Up to 4 feet water, 1 weight at one foot away from Kreepy
4-7 feet water, add a second weight at 6 feet from Kreepy
7-12 feet water add a third weight at 10 feet from Kreepy.

It can take some trial and error to get the Kreepy to cover the whole pool. This includes adding or removing hose sections, and adjusting the pool return "eyeballs" to different directions.

New navigator stays in deep end 99% of time, comes to shallow end, turns around & goes back to deep end


If your filter is placed toward the deep end of your pool, it could be that the pool cleaners hose is too short to reach the shallow end. You might want to test it and add more hose if necessary. It could also be a steering failure. There are a couple things to check if this is happening. Check and clean the rear screen. Make sure that your cone gear is free and rotates smoothly. You might also need to clean, repair, or replace your gearbox.

My kreepy keeps coiling at the deep end of pool and stays there what do i need to do so that it cleans the whole pool?


There are a couple of things that you can try to get your pool cleaner to cover both ends of the pool. First, use an eyeball diverter to make sure that your water flow is correct to make the pool cleaner function in the proper pattern. Your return lines could be pushing the cleaner only toward your deep end. Secondly, if your hose is connected to your filter at the deep end of the pool, it could be that your hose is not long enough to cover the entire pool. You might need to add hose lengths. You will also want to adjust your hose weights.

Vac gets stuck in deep end and can't get to shallow end


What type of pool do you have? These specific pool cleaners are made for flat bottomed above ground pools. They are not made to move from deep end to shallow end. If you are using this on an in ground pool that has both shallow and deep or a dished above ground pool, you are not going to get accurate cleaning.

I just bought and installed a new intelliflo variable speed pump and now my Hayward pool sweep does not move to the shallow end. It only cleans the deep end and even that is not cleaned well. It seems to...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


It is a pressure side cleaner...the booster pump only boosts the main pumps output pressure so much. Lowering the main pump output, the booster WILL NOT compensate by increasing its output. Lowering the pressure to the cleaner head will cause what you describe. Turn the new pump up to full speed to clean the pool then down lower to circulate water for chemical balance and maintenance.

My kreppy crawly turns side ways and dosent correct its self


With this brand of pool cleaners, that is almost always going to be a problem with your hose balance. Turn your pump off and observe your Kreepy Krauly. The seal should rest flat on the pool surface and the hose and tubes should be at a 45 degree angle. Adjust hose weights (as follows) one inch at a time until you get the proper balance. If you have a deep and shallow end, adjust to the deep end first.

The hose is too light if it raises toward the surface at a greater than 45 degree angle. Move the weights closere to the cleaner (one inch at a time). If the cleaner is closer to the pool floor, move the weights away from the cleaner.

Kreepy cleans the deep end great. It cleans the walls and bottom but will not venture up the slant to the shallow end


There are several things that could cause these automatic pool cleaners to have this problem. First, check the return line water flor and redirect it if necessary. Also, make sure that the hose is long enough to cover the entire pool without difficulty. Also, check the hose balance to make sure that it is correct.

Won't go in shallow end to clean


If your floats have started to absorb water, the unit may become reluctant to climb the slope from the deep end to the shallow end, although it may still at least start to climb and clean the wall. There are 3 installed floats in the unit bottom plate: 1 "h" float and 2 pocket floats. Aqua Service Distributors in Sequin, TX had a good price on replacements. Good people, too. S.
