If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.

My g3 is not working, took it to pool store and they replaced diaphram, but still not hopping or moving, suction is good but now movement.


There are a couple things to check with these pool cleaners when they stop moving. Use Pool Pulse to insure proper flow through the cleaner. Clean baskets and filter to ensure that you are not clogged. Check hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

I have the zodiac g3 i hear it pulsating but i looks like it has too much suction and it gets stuck and does not move how do i adjust it


You need to use your pool cleaners flow gauge to test for proper flow. Keeping the hose submerged, attach the gauge to the hose and turn on the pump. The red indicator, when viewed from the side, should be at the 3 setting. If the flow is too low, check and clean the pool filter and baskets. If the flow is too high, verify that valves controlling the suction lines are in the correct position, change your flow setting on the Flow Keeper valve, or open the main drain slightly.

Check your pool cleaners hose to make sure that it is not becoming tangled. Storing the hose in a coiled position will cause this. If it is not moving and it is not the hose, you could have a leak in a connection somewhere. If the cleaner is getting adequate suction, it should be moving. Try adjust the hose weights to make sure the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle to the pools floor.

Has good suction but wont move


Is there a tile stuck in the condom shaped diaphram when you look into the cleaner from underneath. Could be any kind of rubbish make sure you look deep inside as debris gets stuck right at the top.
This diaphram is removable check also that it does not have a hole in it.

My zodiac g-3 just does not move .I have a new filter cartridge.I have good suction to the hose.no visible obstructions.Please help.


Check suction on bottom of vac. You may have suction where hose plugs into wall but not into cleaner. If there is suction there, than diaphragm most likely has a rip or tear in it. If no suction on bottom of cleaner, than look for a broken hose or an obstruction somewhere in the hoses.

No movement with my g3 baracuda


A small rip or tear in the diaphragm will cause that problem. When you put your hand over the mouth you are creating more suction to the diaphragm. Replace diaphragm.

My baracuda is pulsating and moving but surfaces


The control should be below the water, and if you cut the suction down that should help with the cleaner.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.


I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
