With these pool cleaners, there are several things that can cause a lack of suction and movement. Make sure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed except the line you are using. Make sure there is no debris in the flapper or filter that could be clogging suction. Check the hose are ensure that there are no leaks. Check the pump basket for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing o-rings.

At the end of summer our Zodiac ran for about 5 minutes and then stopped.We got the pool-guys out and they said the underground pipes had a leak,they dug it all up and replaced.The Zodiac did the same.Then...


Sad ??.

Home water pressure runs 60-80#, which a sound plumbing system should handle. Can you get into your plumbing where there is a straight shot to the pool, rig an adapter and try to back flush into the pool?

I presume your filter is clear (low pressure drop on gauge).

My g3 is not working, took it to pool store and they replaced diaphram, but still not hopping or moving, suction is good but now movement.


There are a couple things to check with these pool cleaners when they stop moving. Use Pool Pulse to insure proper flow through the cleaner. Clean baskets and filter to ensure that you are not clogged. Check hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

The pool cleaner will work for a couple of minutes then stop. If I pick it up and nearly lift out of the water it will generally start again for a little while. I have just replaced diaphram and can't see...


You need to check your water flow to ensure that your pool cleaner is getting adequate power. A dirty pool filter, clogged baskets and improperly set valves are usually the main cause of low flow. If your flow is too high, confirm that the valves controlling these lines are properly set. Lower the setting on the Flowkeeper valve and slightly open the main drain as a last option if flow is still excessive.

any damage to that diaphram will cause the cleaner to not work. If it is only 6 months old then it is under warranty. any pool store should be able to get you a new diaphram at no cost. bring your paperwork with you to show proof of purchase.

My Barracuda keeps stopping after a while. Did the suction test and it is reading 3. Is this too low to keep it running?


3 is perfect. The diaphram is most likely the problem. If the diaphram is more than say..9 months old it can get bloated and not function properly. The only other problem could be is if the cleaner is a few years old the foot pad could be worn out and the cleaner can **** itself to the pool and not move. Most likely the diaphram though.

Can Baracuda Diaphragm be replaced?


If you can't find any junk in the diaphram or throught. The best thing to do is take it to a store they can show you how to do this and they will not usually charge for more than just the part.

Has good suction but wont move


Is there a tile stuck in the condom shaped diaphram when you look into the cleaner from underneath. Could be any kind of rubbish make sure you look deep inside as debris gets stuck right at the top.
This diaphram is removable check also that it does not have a hole 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.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.


I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
