Try no weights.
Try weights in a incorrect position.
How is the hose....is it flexible......is it steering it to the sides and keeping it there?

May have too much suction causing it to always climb the pool wall. Open the bottom drain some. Also you can take the hose and lay it out straight on th pool deck on a hot sunny day. They recommend that you do that occasionally.

What can i do to get my Zodiac Kreepy Crawley to submerge under the water to clean the bottom of my pool


Check to see that the hose weights are attached. There should be a weight in the middle of the fist 3 sections of hose from the cleaner.

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 have a 20X40 rectangular liner pool and my kreepy krauly stays in the deep end of the pool. I think I need to adjust the weights. Where should the weights be placed?


The first weight from the cleaning head should be adjusted so the Kreepy sits flat on the floor with the system turned off. Then you can start moving the next weight until it starts climbing the hill to the shallow end. It may take a few times but if you get the weights set correctly it should work.

My kreeper craler wont stay on the bottom of the poll its tippietoes across the bottom of the pool


it's usually caused by not enough weights on the suction hose, or the vertical stabilizer float has gone past the stop tabs and it sitting way too high on the unit. the hinged double stabilizer should be secured near the bottom of the unit and should only move side to side, it should not travel up the kreepy at all.

Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner only clean one pool side because strong jet don't let move to other side


If you don't have directonal eyeballs on your jet's you can get a dirveter for the jet that will push the water down the wall rather than out into the pool. Get these at your local pool store. Baracuda and Kreepy Krawlie both make them.

My Kreepy Krawly always gets stuck!


You will get a current going in the pool that will drive the cleaner into some spots that it can't get out of. The steps are a good spot for this.
If you move the return eyeballs around usually point them down this will help. This will stop any action on the surface of the pool as far as pushing things into the skimmer but the action of the hose jiggeling should help to break the surface tention of the pool and get leaves and such to sink so the cleaner to pick them up.
If you don't have eyeball returns then you can get dirveters that slide into the return lines to break these currents for you.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Do you have any hose weights fitted to the kreepy hose? If you do,take it off and see if it makes a difference.Is this happening while the kreepy is operating?
