Question about Zodiac BARRACUDA G3 IN-GRND CLEANER
If you are seeing air bubbles in the leaf pot on the pump, you have an air leak on the suction side somewhere between the pump and the pool. Check the pump lid o-ring for any dirt, leaves, etc. Make sure the O-ring on the lid is not cracked, dry (lubrication like Aladdin's Magic Lube) or compressed or flattened. Also check your union or threaded connections to the pump suction (end) to insure they are tight and sealed. If this is an in-ground pool, and equipped with valves to control skimmers and bottom suction, close each valve separately to see if the air bubbles diminish. If the bubbles diminish when the valve is closed, then the air leak is in the closed section from that valve back to the pump. If the air leak increases, the air leak is in the still open line. Since the Kreepy crawly works on suction and increases the vacuum, the air leak will become more apparent, resulting in a loss of pump efficiency and flow, resulting in lost performance on the cleaner. If so equipped, close off the bottom drain valve and increase the suction on the vac line. I can provide further details as needed, but will need more information from you regarding actual equipment layout.
