The biggest cause of this is current in the pool driving the cleaner to the corners. You propally just need to change the direction of the eye balls on you returns to the pool. Face them down the pool wall or just in another direction to break up the flow of water in the pool.

My bottom cleaner keeps getting stuck in a particular corner, how do I correct this?

since this cleaner works on the principal that if run long enough it will clean the entire pool area, there is no real way to control its movements. try removing one length of the hose. this will change the pattern of the cleaner. you can also change the flow rate of the water and if you are using a weight, change its position. try only one fix at a time so you know which is working

Zodiak G4 Get stuck in corners steps ect.

Check a couple things when these pool cleaners are getting stuck on steps and in corners. Is the correct length of hose being used? It might be necessary to shorten. Make sure that the ideal flow is being achieved. Add hose weights 3 feet from the cleaner head. You might need to also install a wheel guard (part # W83278). This wheel delfector will also work if the cleaners are hanging on the ladder.

Keeps getting stuck in corners

There are several things that you can try if your pool cleaners getting stuck at corners. First, make sure that the cleaner is getting the proper water flow and adjust it if necessary. Also, make sure that you inlets are adjusted so that they are pointed down and at the center of the pool. This will ensure that the cleaner is pointing in the right direction. Check your hose weights to make sure that they are correct. You will know they are right if the cleaner is sitting at a 45 degree angle with the pool's bottom when resting.

My zodiac baracuda gets caught up in the corners of my pool constantly. What should I do?

If these pool cleaners are getting stuck on corners or other obstacles, try these solutions. Try using Pool Pulse to lower the flow. If you are getting too much flow, the cleaner will stay along the edges of the pool and in corners. You might also need to adjust hose weights. You can adjust your return flow lines in the pool. If they are directed toward the corners, try moving them down and center to direct the cleaner in the correct positions in the pool.
