The first problem that you have is that you indicated that you have a Zippy pool cleaner by Zodiac. This cleaner is designed for above ground, flat bottomed pools. If you are using it for a dished above ground or in ground pool with a shallow end, the cleaner and the hose itself are not compatible with your pool. That is why it is not going to the shallow end of your pool. I would consider looking for pool cleaners that are designed for in ground pools if you want it to cleaner properly.

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.

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.

New navigator stays in deep end 99% of time, comes to shallow end, turns around & goes back to deep end


If your filter is placed toward the deep end of your pool, it could be that the pool cleaners hose is too short to reach the shallow end. You might want to test it and add more hose if necessary. It could also be a steering failure. There are a couple things to check if this is happening. Check and clean the rear screen. Make sure that your cone gear is free and rotates smoothly. You might also need to clean, repair, or replace your gearbox.

Vac gets stuck in deep end and can't get to shallow end


What type of pool do you have? These specific pool cleaners are made for flat bottomed above ground pools. They are not made to move from deep end to shallow end. If you are using this on an in ground pool that has both shallow and deep or a dished above ground pool, you are not going to get accurate cleaning.

I got a legend platinum poll cleaner this week and it dosent come up to the shallow end.my slope isnt very steep and the cleaner seems to have plenty of power because it climbs the walls fine.ive tried...


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.

Won't go in shallow end to clean


If your floats have started to absorb water, the unit may become reluctant to climb the slope from the deep end to the shallow end, although it may still at least start to climb and clean the wall. There are 3 installed floats in the unit bottom plate: 1 "h" float and 2 pocket floats. Aqua Service Distributors in Sequin, TX had a good price on replacements. Good people, too. S.
