If your pool cleaner is losing suction, there are several things that you need to check. Check the diaphragm for damage. Make sure that you don't have air leaking into the cleaner. Check all of the returns, hose, and connections for cracks or improper connections. Make sure that the filter is backwashed and that there are no obstructions in the filter basket.

SOURCE: no suction on my baracuda

There are several things that you will want to try if you are not getting adequate suction on these pool cleaners. First and foremost, make sure that you are getting proper water flow to the cleaner. If you are not, the cleaner will not move until the water flow is increased. Clean your baskets and your filter and make sure that they are clear of debris and blockages. Also, make sure that you do not have any leaks in your hoses and connections. Any leakage of air will cause the cleaner not to move correctly.

SOURCE: Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner hose tear

I haven't seen any bulletins on the Zippy hoses. You might adjust the flow to the cleaner. You can find the Manual for the zippy cleaner on this page beneith the diagram. It shows how the star control works. You can also contact the Mfg Technical Support at Phone: 800-822-7933 They might be able to warranty a hose or two for you.

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.

No movement with my g3 baracuda


A small rip or tear in the diaphragm will cause that problem. When you put your hand over the mouth you are creating more suction to the diaphragm. Replace diaphragm.

My Baracuda pool cleaner doesn't work at all


While the cleaner is in the water, see if there is suction on the bottom of it. If not than you probably have a bad hose.(Broken) If there is a lot of suction then the diaphragm probably is either worn out or has a rip or tear in it.

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.

Get stuck in the pool corner


try adding a hose length or taking one piece off. Also you can try increasing or decreasing the suction.

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.

The zodiac G4 pool cleaner has slowed down considerably and now gets stuck on the drain so i have to continually drag it off so it will circle the rest of the pool


Your Zodiac should ballence all suction with the skimmer and no suction should go through the main drain. A main drain is better called a deep suction to collect heavy dird and your cleaner is a roveing suction and replaces the drain. If both are on the two suctions pulling against each other will always stop the cleaner.
