SOURCE: My Hayward Phantom pool cleaner has stopped

If the cleaner has no suction, check for obstructions in the debris chamber or throat of the cleaner. Also, check for hose leaks. If the cleaner has suction, but is just not moving properly and is spinning in circles, you most likely have a problem with your hose. It is a common problem with these pool cleaners getting small kinks or bends in their hoses that cause them to move in circles. If you store your cleaner hose in a coiled position, this will make the problem worse. Try laying the hose out in the sun and stretch it slightly. Let it sit for several hours, reconnect, and try it again.

I have a Phantom. It goes into the skim mode (the top jets shoot), but won't rise to the top. Anyone????


I had the same problem. The fix is easy. The stiraphom floats inside get waterlogged and need to be replace after several years of being left in the water. The pair cost about $15 and easily slide in and out once the top cover of the phantom is removed.

How do you disconnect the cleaner connector from the body of the Phantom


Push the hose connector in and rotate counter clockwise. Wiggle out. There should be a filter inside that can be cleaned. Apply some silicone grease to make re-insertion and removal easier next time.

Why is my phantom cleaner stuck spinning in a circle?


It is most likely that your hose is bent. Check the hose at the hose cleaner end assembly. If you notice that it is bent or warped, lay the hose out in the sun (stretched out) to try to remove the bend. Make sure that you are not storing your hose in a coiled position. This will cause this. It could also be that the pressure though your pool cleaners too high.

Doesn't seem to be travelling around the pool as good as it originally did. it is approx 15 months old


I have owned 2 phantoms over 5 years. Most likely the problem is with the hose. The Phantom's hose will invariably need repairs over time. The hose swivels break and leak causing the pressure to drop. Even one leak will cause the cleaner to slow substantially.

The pressure gauge that came with the cleaner is very helpful. It will tell you if it is a pressure issue or the cleaner itself. Check your hose swivels and joints to look for leaks. Next check the filter screens (one near wall and one in the back of the cleaner). Finally, look at the hose's connection to the wall. The culprit is likely one of the above hose related issues.

Phantom does not move gets stuck in one spot


Is the cleaner getting stuck at steps, corners, etc? If so, your spin out is too short. Change the cam to the "winter" position to increase the pool cleaners spin out.

Hayward phantom will not float fully to the surface


If it has skimmed the top of the pool before try rearranging sections of the hose and make sure all sections of hose can rotate freely.

Cleaner wont go . I cleaned the filter. and checked the cleaner for cloug .every thing seems ok.It wont go


whith the main pool pump on and the booster pump on too. pull the hose up to the deck, without pulling the phantom out of the water. You will see unions leaking, you will have to replace them. what is happening is pressure is being relieved from the unions and their for, does not have the force to move the phantom..
