Question about Pentair White/Gray Legend Platinum Automatic Pool Cleaner - Ll105pm
Check the cleaner feed hose length. It should be just long enough to reach the farthest part of the pool. If it is longer it may need to be cut down. Also look inside the fitting that connects the feed hose to the pool wall. There should be a small metal screen. It may have to be cleaned out to allow proper water flow. If the screen is missing then the jets inside the pool cleaner could be clogged. Make sure the feed hose floats are spaced evenly or arranged so that the hose is floating at the surface. Also there are jets on the back of the cleaner that can be adjusted that may help it pull loops out. One other thing is the head float that is at the top of the cleaner next to the debris bag. Make sure it doesnt have water inside of it. If it does have water in it then replace it.

All great answers and advice from poolmann974, they should always be checked as he said and routinely. but... in regards to tangling, probably not the issue???
Belive it or not... too many swivels add to the problem!
Most people think if I add a swivel here where it begins to coil then tangle, it will fix the problem, but yet the problem remains!!!
The manufacturer recommends this for the proper layout of the hoses; from the wall all the way to the head:
If the hoses are old, then they may not be pliable any longer and should be replaced. All three sections: 1 clear soft hose And 2 white not so soft hoses.
Now, the Back up valve will be placed on the soft hose about 3-4' away from the head.
Follow this and the hose should not tangle. And...
And heed any advice about storing the hose coiled as it is not good, = ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!
Whenever storing, always store in a straight line, otherwise it will retain the memory of the coil. If this has happened, place & lay it straight on your deck in the sun, that should relax it and erase any memory of a coil.
