If you don't have directonal eyeballs on your jet's you can get a dirveter for the jet that will push the water down the wall rather than out into the pool. Get these at your local pool store. Baracuda and Kreepy Krawlie both make them.

Baracuda runs for about 5 minutes and then stops sucking


I would first check your filter and pump to make sure that they are clean and free of debris. Also, check the pool cleaners Star Control setting to make sure that it is in the yellow range. The cleaner could be getting improper flow. You might also need to replace the diaphragm.

Barracuda has plenty of suction but hardly moves around the pool, goes very slowly


You likely just need a new pad on the head. When they ware down they allow the head to get closer to the surface that it's cleaning, but the additional suction makes it difficult for the head to move.

I hope this helps you!

My barracuda stays in the deep end and will not move to the shallow end of the pool


You probably just need to redirect the returns in the pool. If they are angled right (or wrong) they will get a current moving in the pool and cause the cleaner to go to one spot and keep it in just that area of the pool.

My zodiac zippy will not move in the pool. Please help.


Make sure that your pump is on and that your filter is clean and not clogged. You will also want to check your water flow with the Star Control system. This is most likely what is causing lack of movement with these types of pool cleaners. If you get a blue or black reading, your flow is too low and you need to adjust it to get it to yellow. Increase the flow by turning the Star Control Assembly clockwise until the black indicator line aligns with the yellow area on the indicator gauge.

Will not travel into shallow end


The first problem that you have is that you indicated that you have a Zippy pool cleaner by Zodiac. This cleaner is designed for above ground, flat bottomed pools. If you are using it for a dished above ground or in ground pool with a shallow end, the cleaner and the hose itself are not compatible with your pool. That is why it is not going to the shallow end of your pool. I would consider looking for pool cleaners that are designed for in ground pools if you want it to cleaner properly.

The barracuda just returns to the deep end of the pool and stays there, how can I get the cuda to sweep the whole pool?


The Barracuda Zippy is an Above Ground pool cleaner and is not designed for a pool that does not have a flat bottom. They are generally not capable of climbing slopes, walls, etc.

Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner hose tear


I haven't seen any bulletins on the Zippy hoses. You might adjust the flow to the cleaner. You can find the Manual for the zippy cleaner on this page beneith the diagram. It shows how the star control works. You can also contact the Mfg Technical Support at Phone: 800-822-7933 They might be able to warranty a hose or two for you.

Hello,I just hooked my Baracuda G3 up today.I feel like I followed directions and it does travel around the pool.However it follows the same track each time in a somewhat figure 8 pattern and only cleans...


Try changing the angle of your return jets in the pool they will have a tendency to set a current running in the pool. This was always what you wanted before to get the water to run past the skimmer but now it will give the cleaner a hard time getting around the pool. If you don't have directionals on you returns Baracuda makes an aftermarket dirvirter to fit most returns.
