Pentair Legend with boster pump dosent stay on bottom of pool. Seems to float near top of pool more than it does staying on bottom when its suppose to be cleaning.

Make sure that your wheel RPM is not greater than 32. If the RPM is too high, the cleaner will be forced from the bottom of the pool. Make sure that your back up valve is cycling properly because it, too, can cause the cleaner to lose contact with the floor. You might need to use a diverter to make sure that the pool cleaners not getting too much pressure.

My great white pool clearner is not moving in the pool what might be the problem?

There are several thing that you can check. Be sure that both the filter pump and booster pump
are on and working properly. They might need to be cleaned. Also, check the wall fitting screen for debris and rinse clean. Test your pool cleaners wheel RPM and make sure that it is in the desirable level of 28-32. Make sure that your back-up valve is cycling. Check all the hose connections and
swivels for leaks that can cause loss of water pressure.

I just moved into a house with a pool and i hook up the legend and it doesn't crawl

If these pool cleaners are moving, there are several suggestions in the users manual. I have attached a copy below in case you didn't get one when you took the pool over. Basically, make sure that your filter ,booster pump, and wall fitting screen are all clean and working properly, check wheel RPM and get it to 28-32 RPM, make sure that your backup valve is cycling, and check all of your hoses and connections for leaks or cracks that would allow air into the line.

Our three year old Legend keeps tipping over while

Sounds like the head float just below the debris bag is bad. Check to see if it has water in it. If so then replace it. That float helps keep it upright.

The backup valve is not working and appears to have a clasp missing on the cog wheels. Where can I find a detailed schematic of the internal parts?

There is no schematic available. They don't sell replacement parts fot the backup timer either. Your best bet is to replace it.
