Sounds like you need a cuff to go into the skimmer to hold the hose in place. Or you may have air in your system. This builds inside your filter then when the pump goes off the bubble expands up in size and blows back through system. Check all your hoses for air leaks if this is the problem. If they are OK start checking pump lid "O" rings and plumbing. get rid of the air and your problem should stop.

How do I use pool pulse?


From the users manual for these pool cleaners:

The Pool Pulse is a flow meter that measures the volume of water flowing through your Zodiac cleaner. It must be used to properly set the flow and can be used as a diagnostic tool when the cleaner isn't running properly.For the following steps, using 2 people is recommended; one poolside and the other at the plumbing manifold. Vacuum and skimmer valves are located at your plumbing manifold.
• Remove the cleaner head.
• Attach the Pool Pulse® to the end of the hose and keep it under water as shown in Figure 1.
• Turn on the filtration system.
• For pools with one skimmer, flow is automatically regulated by the Flowkeeper Valve. Insure the blue indicator of the Pool
Pulse is in the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with two or more skimmers, leave the selected skimmer open and slowly close the other skimmer(s) until the blue
indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with a wall vacuum fitting, leave the wall vacuum fitting fully open and slowly close the skimmer valve until the blue
indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• Keeping the hose under water, remove the Pool Pulse. Submerge the cleaner head, and when the bubbles stop coming from the
extension pipe, attach the hose end. Your installation is now complete.

Barracuda climbing walls almost to be out of the pool. Sometimes I think it is high enough to **** air.


There are several adapters on the market to allow more water to bypass the cleaner. One is called the Vac-Mate, another is the Hayward skimmer adapter. I personally like the vac-mate. but it's only compatible with most skimmers.

You need to use the Pool Pulse feature to control the flow of water through the cleaner. Here is a brief overview, but if you need more details, consult page 6 of the users manual for this pool cleaner (below if you don't have it).
"Remove the cleaner head. Attach the Pool Pulse to the end of the hose and keep it under water. Turn on the filtration system.
• For pools with one skimmer, flow is automatically regulated by the Flowkeeper Valve. Insure the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse is in the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with two or more skimmers, leave the selected skimmer open and slowly close the other skimmer(s) until the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with a wall vacuum fitting, leave the wall vacuum fitting fully open and slowly close the skimmer valve until the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).

Moves slowly and the stops. looks like diapham doesn't open back up


This seems to indicate insufficient suction from skimmer. Confirm that all other skimmers are closed off properly. Suction can be checked by disconnecting suction hose from pool cleaner and placing your hand over the end of the hose. Suction hose may also have an obstruction which will inhibit proper operation.

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.

Try changing the angle of your return jets in the pool they will have a tendency to set a current running in the pool. This was always what you wanted before to get the water to run past the skimmer but now it will give the cleaner a hard time getting around the pool. If you don't have directionals on you returns Baracuda makes an aftermarket dirvirter to fit most returns.

Baracuda pool cleaner does not cover the entire pool


With these pool cleaners, there are several things that it could be. Check the return line water flow and redirect as necessary with an eyeball diverter. Make sure the automatic regulator valve is installed properly and is not clogged. Make sure the cleaner has proper hose balance.

Zodiac baracuda wont go to shallow end of pool


If you can, adjust your intake valves so more of the suction is coming from your vacuum and less from your skimmers. This will allow the the vacuum to climb out of the deep end.
