Question about Aqua Vac Tiger Shark

1 Answer

My Tiger Shark is on its third season. The first two it worked fine. This season it stopped climbing the vertical walls, so I took it back to my dealer and they sent it to The Whitmer Co for repairs. Got it back and it seemed to work within the first five minutes, but now all it does is go back and forth. It does not suction, and the thruster came on only during the first couple of minutes upon applying power (it was in the water when I turned power on).It stalls and then reverses upon encountering the slightly inclined part of the pool. It goes backward sometimes completely across the pool, but other times just reverses after about five feet and repeats the same action. The thruster needs to come on to hold it against the wall, but...no thruster!

Get your dealer or the repair center to issue a call tag to get it back and fix it right this time. If they are a reputable repair center they will cover the return freight charge and re-diagnose the problem. It may need additional repairs than what was originally quoted and those may have an additional cost but they should at least cover the return freight to get it back to see what is wrong.

I lent my tiger shark to my sister who has a kidney shaped pool, mine is rectangle. Is any reprogramming required since the pool shapes are different?


No. The unit 'learns' the pool based upon time recorded in the horizontal and vertical positions while cleaning. It will work, although perhaps not as well as in a rectangle-shaped pool, without any further action than dropping it in and powering it up.

Tiger shark just doesnt clean very well


I the filter is not very clean the pump will not push hard enough to hold the tracks onto the walls. Try running without filter in a very clean pool for a few minutes to see if it solves the climb walls replace the filter and clean the unit

Aquabot Turbo T won't climb


1.`. Replace your old, water logged floats. They will dry out when the unit is out of the pool, and the unit will work fine until they water log again, which may takes as few as 10 minutes in the pool. 2. Stop using all those words *********** didn't teach you and probably didn't even know...This is a common problem. http://www.i-love-my-aquabot-automatic-pool-cleaner.com/ gives some really good insight, too!

2002 Dodge Van towing a Rock Climbing Wall. No


I would think that the wires from the RCW (rock climbing wall) that control the running lights are wired to the interior dash lights of the van, and a fuse blew, killing the above mentioned lights. Check the fuse block for a bad fuse, probably labeled inst lights or inst lgt. Did you make the trip there in daylight, and trip home at night? The fuse for the dash lights couldn't handle the extra drain of the RCW running lights.
