My creepy does not clean the floor of my pool and spend most of the time on the side walls

Maybe my English is insufficient to understand your slang. For me "CREEPY" is
1. Of or producing a sensation of uneasiness or fear, as of things crawling on one's skin
2. Annoyingly unpleasant; repulsive.
Also may be used for somethig inappropriate or perverted or for attempting to derive gratification through dishonorable means.
If you feel you made a misuse of he word "creepy", so specify better your question using the appropiate term.

The creepy crawler is staying in one position, pulsating as if all good, all traps good, hose is collapsed down by insertion point. not sure what the problem is?

If the hose is collapsed then the pump is drawing more suction than the hose can withstand. This is caused by a restriction upstream.I would find out what is plugging the system. Once water is flowing normally it likely will correct both problems. I hope this helps.

Can't get my creepy crawler to work in my pool, i have a purex triton filter system, i can't get any suction on from the crawler

It sounds like your automatic pool cleaner might have a leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to make sure that there are no leaks or cracks. Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Look and check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

My creepy crawley will not pulsate, or does for 5 minutes then stops pulsating but keeps on sucking. I have read a few complaints and from what I can gather, I need to replace the flapper valve. What is...

ok first of all the flapper is located right in the center at the bottom of the creepy crawley. Pull it out of the pool turn it upside down and you can actually move it with your hands and it will feel like it loose and not really connected. Anyhow check in the mouth - opening for any kind of obstuction (leaves,twigs or anything foreign that may be causing it to fail. There can be something flopping around inside causing it to work sporadic or the flapper may need replaced however I doubt that. Next you need to check your circulation. Is there to much suction? this would cause it to stay in one spot and not move. Do you have an air leak causing the pump to lose prime and then regain it over and over? There are two ways you can check for air. At the pump basket - if you have a clear top can you see bubbles or on your return lines to the pool is there bubbles coming out? To much circulation and poor circulation can cause the creepy to do weird things. When was your filter last cleaned? Is there the required amount D.E. inside? Have you backwashed the filter at all? The last thing to check would be the hoses connected to the creepy crawley. Some hoses become loosly connected and start sucking air. Some hoses rub along the plaster continuously in the same spot causing holes. Although unlikely, poor water chemistry - chemical damage can cause hoses to deteriate over the years.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to submit any further questions you may have and I will be glad to answer them for you. Good Luck!!

Creepy crawly no longer sucks leaves from pool bottom, pump pressure is at 8 only instead of 10.

If pressure is low, problem is before gauge and filter. If pressure is high, problem is filter or piping after filter. In you case it sounds like something is caught in hose or pipes . Could also be something stuck in the impeller. Remove cleaner and hoses and see if pressure goes back to normal. If it does not, check impeller. If it does, something is probably caught in cleaner or hoses.

Kreepy Krauly In-Ground Pool Cleaner: my creepy crawler wont hammer...

This usually happens when there is a small stick jambing in the bottom of the openning in the Kreepy Krauly where it sucks in the water and rubbish. It is the rubber tube that has a ****, usually something is jambed in the **** to prevent it from thumping.

My creepy crawler wont hammer

You need to check in by the flapper for obstruction and check inside the tubes also. Provided the water flo is good. If this does not help you need to work backwards to the pump to look for the problem. Usually if you put a small sponge in the suction pipe and it does not come out in the pump basket then your problem is somewhere in the suction pipe.
