Their is probally a small hole or tear in your diaprham and will need replacement. If you take it to a pool store they will probally do this for you just for the price of the part.

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!

Wont move,has suction but wont move?


If cleaner is pulsing, you probably have a worn out foot pad and it should be replaced. If it not pulsing, you probably have a ripped or torn diaphragm and it needs to be replaced. Also, make sure there is enough suction.

Zodiac has suction but doesn't move


With these pool cleaners, that is often a problem with the flapper. Check the flapper to be sure that no debris is stuck. Debris can halt water flow and movement, making your cleaner get stuck.

Check your pool cleaners hose to make sure that it is not becoming tangled. Storing the hose in a coiled position will cause this. If it is not moving and it is not the hose, you could have a leak in a connection somewhere. If the cleaner is getting adequate suction, it should be moving. Try adjust the hose weights to make sure the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle to the pools floor.

My zodiac g-3 just does not move .I have a new filter cartridge.I have good suction to the hose.no visible obstructions.Please help.


Check suction on bottom of vac. You may have suction where hose plugs into wall but not into cleaner. If there is suction there, than diaphragm most likely has a rip or tear in it. If no suction on bottom of cleaner, than look for a broken hose or an obstruction somewhere in the hoses.

My baracuda G3 stop working is not pulsating and therefore not moving. I checked the suction and the hoses even the diaphram everything looks ok.


If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.

Changed the fin on the baracuda, but it still does not move around the pool, can fill the suction if I lift it up, but it does not move.


If you have good suction at the head you may have a bad diaprham or something stuck in it. If you have suction but it is weak check for cracks in hoses or you may have a clog in your pump impeller.
