Check for air leaks in your hoses, your pump or in the plumbing system. Also check for clogs in your pump impeller if you have any problems with your basket. Good luck.

Replace the footpad and pleated seal. I've had kreepy krauly cleaners for years and they work great once you learn the little tricks.

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.

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 Kreepy Krauly won't move. I've checked the hose for holes and also replaced the vinyl suction cup on the bottom but it won't budge. Doesn't appear that there is much suction. Could it be something...


Yes, it could. Check the filter and pump for debris. This could severely restrict movement in these pool cleaners. Also, check the flaps of the Kreepy Krauly for debris. Also, check to make sure that the main drain and ALL suction lines, except the one the cleaner is attached to, are closed. This might also be why you have a lack of suction. My final suggestions would be to check the return line water flow and make sure that it is strong enough.

Wont stay on the bottom of the pool


This could be lack of suction or not weighted properly. Most likely a lack of suction. If you just got it there should be a suction gauge that came with it. Otherwise a pool store should have one for you. If you are in the Phoenix Metro area you can contact me at info@wefixuglypools.com for more help.

I back washed both weir and scimmer boxes are clean but kreepy stays weak.There is nothing in kreepy pipe or mouth


You can look inside the cleaner to see if there is debris in there. If debris got past the pump basket you might have a clogged impeller limiting the suction. 1 other thing to check is the foot pad on the bottom of the cleaner. If it is worn it could be sucking itself to the bottom of the pool.

Kreepy crawly keeps stopping but nothing is blocked


With Kreepy Krauly pool cleaners, it is usually something blocked so you have taken the perfect first step in finding your problem. You will also want ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the line to which the Kreepy Krauly is attached. Also, if this is a new purchase, it could be that your pump and filter system are too small to properly propel the cleaner.

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.

How do I turn down the suction to the kreepy?


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.
