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.

Kreepy Krauly has very little suction thru head but plenty thru hose


most all pool cleaners generate there motion with a thing called a venturi ! thats inside it usually moves a small propeller from the action of water being sucked hard thru the hose , on most the path to this "propeller" is different than that of pool debris , i suspect this alt path is part ways blocked , a simple way to clear is to connect garden hose to suction port of cleaner and force water Back in other direction other than that sometimes dissasembly is need to lube and clean hidden ports inside

Kreepy krauly regulator valve won't close, it's always open so the cleaner doesn't move. There's plenty of suction,


It has debris stuck in it. Normally it is not too hard to clear it out. If you can't clear it, try to run the Kreepy without the regulator.

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.

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.

It moves too slowly


If these automatic pool cleaners are moving slowly or sluggishly, first check to make sure that filter and strainer baskets are clean and not clogged. Make sure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which your Kreepy Krauly is attached. Make sure there is not debris in the flapper than might be restricting movement. Also, and especially if you are noticing bubbles during slow movements, check for leaks. Make sure there are not leaks in the hose, vacuum connections, pump basket lids, etc.

My Kreepy Krauly works for 10-15 minutes and then stops hammering and sits on the pool floor. I have replaced and checked parts and the pump runs well.


you may have a hose that allows air to get sucked in at times when the unit moves and the hose with crack is able to float to the surface and make contact with outside air. move hoses around and see if that helps you can also start from the closest connection at the suction port and lift the hose out of the water one section at a time hold it out of water for a moment and see if you notice any weird feeling or hear a slurping do this section by section until you get to the last hose section at kreepy head

Our kreepy krauly will not stay suctioned to the bottom of the pool. What can we do?


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.

My kreepy krauly is moving at half speed and sometimes stops moving all together. All tubing is good, filter has just been cleaned, any ideas?


Check your pump pressure on the suction side. If there is any air gap in your pump strainer pot (if you have a see thru see thru strainer cover) then you have a leak on the suction side. Auto matic cleaners need ample pressure for them to move. or you might need to backwask the filter check your pressure gauge. If none of these help its more then likely the gears in the cleaner. also check your cleaners hoses
