Question about Aqua Vac Tiger Shark

1 Answer

I just bought an aquavac pool cleaner. It was going up the walls and working well but after about 1/2 hour it would not move out of the deep end and wouldn't go up the walls.

Kreepy moves around only in the deep end of the pool?

pool cleaners that move only to sections of the pool can be influenced by a few things :
1 = hose length ! it does take 1/3 more hose to go the length of pool for auto cleaners
2= hose memory ! hoses tend to get bends in them and tend over time to get a memory in the plastic so they allways say go right or left never straight ,stretching them out in sun helps , but new hoses are sometimes needed
3= depth adjustments ,pool cleaners have floats inside them that makes them have a neutral buoyancy , this is needed as the drive system (tractor treads in your case) needs this 4 traction on pool bottom -too much or not enough wont allow drive to pull hose thru water

Vac gets stuck in deep end and can't get to shallow end

What type of pool do you have? These specific pool cleaners are made for flat bottomed above ground pools. They are not made to move from deep end to shallow end. If you are using this on an in ground pool that has both shallow and deep or a dished above ground pool, you are not going to get accurate cleaning.

My kreppy crawly turns side ways and dosent correct its self

With this brand of pool cleaners, that is almost always going to be a problem with your hose balance. Turn your pump off and observe your Kreepy Krauly. The seal should rest flat on the pool surface and the hose and tubes should be at a 45 degree angle. Adjust hose weights (as follows) one inch at a time until you get the proper balance. If you have a deep and shallow end, adjust to the deep end first.

The hose is too light if it raises toward the surface at a greater than 45 degree angle. Move the weights closere to the cleaner (one inch at a time). If the cleaner is closer to the pool floor, move the weights away from the cleaner.

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.

I have a G4 unit. Can not get it to clean the shallow end. It likes to orbit the deep end mostly on a kidney shape in grd pool. I have change hose lenghts. I have moved the hose weight at different...

Try moving the water inlets around. Down the wall if you can. They will set a current in the pool the cleaner with floating hoses can't over come. If you don't have eyeball returns you can get diverters to do this for you. That should fix your problem.

Aquavac Tiger shark won't operate

The power supply powers on even when it doesn't output any voltage, so it's kind of misleading. You should have the power supply checked or you can do it yourself if you have a multi-meter, by measuring the output and making sure there is 24V.

Kreepy cleans the deep end great. It cleans the walls and bottom but will not venture up the slant to the shallow end

There are several things that could cause these automatic pool cleaners to have this problem. First, check the return line water flor and redirect it if necessary. Also, make sure that the hose is long enough to cover the entire pool without difficulty. Also, check the hose balance to make sure that it is correct.

Won't go in shallow end to clean

If your floats have started to absorb water, the unit may become reluctant to climb the slope from the deep end to the shallow end, although it may still at least start to climb and clean the wall. There are 3 installed floats in the unit bottom plate: 1 "h" float and 2 pocket floats. Aqua Service Distributors in Sequin, TX had a good price on replacements. Good people, too. S. Christian

Zodiac baracuda wont go to shallow end of pool

If you can, adjust your intake valves so more of the suction is coming from your vacuum and less from your skimmers. This will allow the the vacuum to climb out of the deep end.
