These automatic pool cleaners are not designed to be operated with the cover in place.

Much better if you have the hoses that sink, not float. The action of the hoses rubbing on the cover will affect where the cleaner goes. I would suggest not cleaning while pool is covered.

Maybe your hose needs to be reprogrammed by unhooking and lying it in the sun for several hours.

SOURCE: I have a baracuda pacer pool cleaner and it seems

A coupe of things you can try. Either add one hose length or take one off. If that doesn't help, you can reverse the hose positions.(take the first one off, and put it last. Change all of them) Also, changing the amount of suction may help.

SOURCE: baracuda pool cleaner does not cover the entire pool

With these pool cleaners, there are several things that it could be. Check the return line water flow and redirect as necessary with an eyeball diverter. Make sure the automatic regulator valve is installed properly and is not clogged. Make sure the cleaner has proper hose balance.

Use Pool Pulse to ensure proper flow. It could feel ok on your hand, but you need very precise pressure to power these pool cleaners. If you are not familiar with how to use the Pool Pulse feature, take a look at the users manual below. They have a step by step guide to this feature.

My baracuda pool cleaner stays in the deep end only what is the problem?


If these pool cleaners are not going to one end of the pool, make sure that your hose is long enough and that is it is balanced properly. Improper hose floats is likely the cause.

MY POOL CLEANER WILL RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES, THEN STOP. SO METIMES IF I SHAKE THE HOSE IT WILL START AGAIN. ANY ANSWERS?


Hi , most pool cleaners run by the force of the sucked up water moving gears inside the cleaner .. if yours is this way, then any blockage in the cleaner or in the hose attached would restrict the flow and keep the cleaner from moving.

Barrcuda inground pool cleaner flips over


Often when you are having this problem with automatic pool cleaners, it has to do with the hose. Make sure that you have plenty of slack in the hose to cover the entire pool. Also, make sure that you do not have any obstructions in the hose and that it is not tangled.
