The barracuda will not go to the shallow end of the pool

No matter what I've tried with weights and returns, I can't get the barracuda to go the shallow end of the pool. It is long enough and I can drag it there, but it won't stay

Reset your eyeball returns to different positions, their may be a current stopping it from going where you want it to.Reset them give half an hour or so and ck again. Do this till you get results.

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.

I just installed my G3. It pulsates fine and actually goes backwards instead of forward. Is this correct. Also, it seems to keep on the same path and cleaning only the path it has already cleaned going...


It depends on what you call backwards. These do move in the direction of the hose, not opposite the hose. Try adjusting the hose weights per the installation manual and it should work fine for you.

My pool cleaner only sweeps the deep water zone. It never comes up to the shallow half part of the pool. By the way, the approximate size of my pool is 18 ft x 36 ft.


This should be an easy problem to fix with this type of automatic pool cleaner. Add return diverters or divert return inlets downward. This will use flow to move cleaner to opposite end. Move hose weight away from cleaner head slightly. You might also have to add additional hose weights.

Zodiac Pacer getting stuck near lower steps in shallow end of pool.


There are several things that you will want to check if these pool cleaners are becoming hung on your pool steps. make sure that you are utilizing your return flow. If the return jets are not positioned properly, it will cause issues with steps. Position the return line directional so that you can only detect water movement on the surface 8 feet out from the wall, and aim it at the center of the opposite wall. In addition to your return lines, you will also want to confirm proper hose length and weight. Make any adjustments to the flow needed if it is too strong. If these options don't work, you will need to install a wheel deflector (#W69647).

My barracuda stays in the deep end and will not move to the shallow end of the pool


You probably just need to redirect the returns in the pool. If they are angled right (or wrong) they will get a current moving in the pool and cause the cleaner to go to one spot and keep it in just that area of the pool.

Try moving the water inlets around. Down the wall if you can. They will set a current in the pool the cleaner with floating hoses can't over come. If you don't have eyeball returns you can get diverters to do this for you. That should fix your problem.

Won't go in the shallow end. How to adjust


The hose weights for these pool cleaners just snap on to the hose. If you need to know where to put them, follow the following recommendations from the users manual. The pool cleaner should site at a 45 degree angle for the pools floor while resting. In general, if you have model# W03000, you will probably need one hose weight in the middle of the first section of hose. If you have model #W83215 or W83216, put two weights onto the middle of the second hose section. You may need to adjust the weights slightly to make sure that you get the cleaner to the desired 45 degree angle.

Does not clean the whole pool


may need to re-weight it or add helpers.
I had to add a rope system to my pool to get the creepy crawly to all the spots.

Not the best fix - but keeps the pool clean.
