The hose weights for these pool cleaners just snap on to the hose. If you need to know where to put them, follow the following recommendations from the users manual. The pool cleaner should site at a 45 degree angle for the pools floor while resting. In general, if you have model# W03000, you will probably need one hose weight in the middle of the first section of hose. If you have model #W83215 or W83216, put two weights onto the middle of the second hose section. You may need to adjust the weights slightly to make sure that you get the cleaner to the desired 45 degree angle.

I have a pool vac ultra in a variable depth pool. There seems to be too much buoyancy in the unit, it keeps on going up on one wing as it travels up the slope between deep end and shallow end.

Sometimes you need to burp out any trapped air under the vacuum as you place it in the water. Trapped air bubble can cause that. I have had to fasten a light diving weight to mine once before I figured it out.

My kreepy krauly wont clean the deep end of the swimming pool.

Your situation is unusual in that most of the time these will stay in the deep end and not get to the shallow end. Make sure that your hose is the proper length and the hose weights are in the right positions

Up to 4 feet water, 1 weight at one foot away from Kreepy
4-7 feet water, add a second weight at 6 feet from Kreepy
7-12 feet water add a third weight at 10 feet from Kreepy.

It can take some trial and error to get the Kreepy to cover the whole pool. This includes adding or removing hose sections, and adjusting the pool return "eyeballs" to different directions.

I have a 20X40 rectangular liner pool and my kreepy krauly stays in the deep end of the pool. I think I need to adjust the weights. Where should the weights be placed?

The first weight from the cleaning head should be adjusted so the Kreepy sits flat on the floor with the system turned off. Then you can start moving the next weight until it starts climbing the hill to the shallow end. It may take a few times but if you get the weights set correctly it should work.

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.

Sounds more like the floats on you head than the weights on your hose. Make sure their is no water in them and they move free on the mast. Water will keep them from floating and keeping the head up right and if they cant move free this will cause the head to list. Good luck, I hope this helps.

The first thing I would check is the swivels in the hose line. Make sure all of them spin, it not then replace that swivel. You may also want to check the length of the hose, if it was not adjusted to the proper length, this could be the issue also.

Another place to check is other reurn lines. If your pool has more than one return line, check to see if that line is shooting water across the top of the pool, if so, you may want to adjust the flow downward at on angle. The returning water may be stopping the hose and the unit from going to the shallow end.
