Partly open the valve to the bottom drain. If you have a jandy valve you can balance the skimmer and bottom drain. the more you open the bottom drain the less suction you have to the skimmer.

Creepy not working good suction it sticks to the bottom of the pool and wont move


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.

Low filter pressure


First, check for debris in the filter and pump strainer baskets. This can commonly cause these pool cleaners to get poor suction. Also, check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached.

I have great water pressure in my pool, but the minute I attach my Kreepy Krawly, the pressure drops and there is a large vacuum in the pump reservoir. the Kreepy hardly moves at all thereafter.


It sounds like your you might not have all of your suction lines closed. Check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached. If this is not the problem, it could be that the pool pump and filter system that you have may be too small It should be capable of providing at least 25 gallons per minute. These are common issues with these pool cleaners.

My creepy crawley has to much suction and gets stuck in one spot is there a way of turning the suction down


Attenuate your skimmer valve slowly to reduce the suction until the cleaner runs smoothly across the bottom of the pool. If you do not have a skimmer valve I would recommend installing an inline PVC valve in the suction hose close to the skimmer so that it is accessible. Close the valve slowly until proper suction is achieved.

Kreepy ctawler sistematicly get out of water line and **** air. Is any adjustment available? PEK1950@gmail.com


if plugged into skimmer, you can get a regulator and turn down. if plugged into dedicated line you should have a valve at the pump to control suction and turn down.

My kreepy krauly seems to have good suction, but moves very slow. I usually hear a tic,tic,tic,tic, But, lately it has been tic....tic......tic Very Slow


Try these suggestions to get your automatic pool cleaner working properly:
• Check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached.
• Check for debris in the filter or pump basket.
• Check for debris in Kreepy Krauly’s flapper. Debris may prevent flapper movement or restrict flow.
• Check the hose to ensure there are no leaks.
• Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system.
• Check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

KK moves back to the filter box and stays there. I basically have to grab the hose and pull the KK up to the shallow end and then it heads back down to the deep end right where it is attached to the filter...


When you say filter box I want to think your talking about your main drain. If this is the case you just need to shut down the suction to your drain, it is redundant at this point and the suction between the two will make the Kreepy stick to the drain. Hope this helpds.
