Add a little silicone to the threads and wait a couple of hours then use. also you might try some teflon.

My G4 barracuda's diaphram assembly has started to unwind from the cleaner head when it is operating. I have had this particular model for three years and have never had this problem.

Keep in mind that they are made of plastic and the threads change shape over the years.. Try applying several wraps of Teflon tape on the cassette threads and re tighten. This should keep from unwinding... Good luck and hope this helps you... If helpful, please take the time to write a comment and rate,,

G4 keeps heading for and climbing the sides of the pool, always making a long run along the side walls of the pool. The bottom is not being cleaned. Have adequate lenght of hose. Diaphram has no holes....

If these pool cleaners are staying on the edge on the pool, there are two things that you can do to correct the problem. First, reduce the flow through the cleaner to the low side of the ideal range. Second, add a hose weight about 3 feet from the cleaner's head. That should correct the issue.

My G4 keeps unscrewing itself from the vacuum where the hose piece attaches. I was told it could not be fixed and I would have to buy a new part that runs about $90. Is there a way to fix this issue?

Probally, but before I did anything I would take it to another pool store and get their oponion. For me to tell you without looking at it we could go on forever.

I have Phone I9 When I call the person can't hear me. When I have handsfree, I hear my voice on mobile


If people cannot hear you, then it means the mouth pice of the phone is bad. The mouth piece makes people hear you when you talk to them on phone.

To replace the mouth pice, get a screw driver and unscrew the screw at the back. The mouth pice is located at the bottom of the phone. when you see it you will easily identify it.

Replace the bad mouth pice and couple the phone and the problem is solve.

The zodiac G4 pool cleaner has slowed down considerably and now gets stuck on the drain so i have to continually drag it off so it will circle the rest of the pool

Your Zodiac should ballence all suction with the skimmer and no suction should go through the main drain. A main drain is better called a deep suction to collect heavy dird and your cleaner is a roveing suction and replaces the drain. If both are on the two suctions pulling against each other will always stop the cleaner.

Should there be a hole in the side of the G3 diaphram?

no, a common place for cracks is near the top next to the plastic ring that holds the diaphram to the tube. this is a common problem with the G3 and G4 diaphrams. other cracks and holes near the center are usually caused by objects that get picked up and stuck or old age.
too much suction and/or use will shorten the life of the diaphram. along with bad water chemistry

Bara-G4 does not move. I have checked hose,diaph.,rings have lubed, new filter,low water pres.

there are a number of things that can cause your G4 movement problems. First your should make sure you have enough suction at the end of the hose. Your G4 should have come with a device that measures the amount of suction at this point. if your suction is low you need to determine why ie: dirty filter, clogged vacuum port, bad hose, or your suction valves are not adjusted properly. you can also have too much suction. if this is correct and your diaphram is good,(inspect the top near the plastic ring that holds it to the tube. This is a common place for wear). then make sure the tube is not cracked. Also the G4 has a problem with the foot flange wearing out and getting loose. this will also cause movement issues .
