With these pool cleaners, getting stuck in one spot is most likely the result of a waterflow problem. Check your water flow valve and make sure that it is adjusted correctly. make sure that you don't have any blockage that would prevent movement and cause the cleaner to stick in one place. This might seem like common sense, but make sure that you have enough hose to reach the entire pool. Many times, when this occurs, the cleaner cannot reach one part of the pool. make sure that your hose balance is correct also.

My creepy crawly works for a little while then stops.I have 50kpa pressure at the filter

Check for debris or obstructions that could be lodged in the flapper of these pool cleaners. That could be restricting movement and causing the cleaner to stop cleaning. Check to make sure that it is not sticking on the main drain. If the main drain is not closed, missing a grate, or not flush with the pool bottom, it could be sticking. A pool pro would have to do some work to fix these problems (except for closing the main drain).

I have the same problem as well. There is nothing obstructing the the kreepy from sucking. This seems to be a general problem with the bull shark.

It sounds like your house weights need to be adjusted. When the pool cleaner is resting, it should always sit at a 45 degree angle on the bottom of the pool. If it stands up on the front side, try sliding the weight away from the cleaner head. You may need to make several small adjustments to get the balance right, but this is almost surely your problem. Here is a copy of the users manual if you want to read more about hose weights and balance:

Zodiac has suction but doesn't move

With these pool cleaners, that is often a problem with the flapper. Check the flapper to be sure that no debris is stuck. Debris can halt water flow and movement, making your cleaner get stuck.

Creepy crawly tangles

You will need to take the hoses out and lay them flat in the sun for a day or two and while you do this take the head to the store and have them caeck the swivel at the top of the mast head. Good luck.

Make sure there is extra hose and extnsion cord to allow the pool cleaner to manuver around the entire pool floor. I don't know why the pool cleaner has problems with steps, was there a tramatic fall down a flight of steps or something.

Barrcuda inground pool cleaner flips over

Often when you are having this problem with automatic pool cleaners, it has to do with the hose. Make sure that you have plenty of slack in the hose to cover the entire pool. Also, make sure that you do not have any obstructions in the hose and that it is not tangled.

Does not clean the whole pool

may need to re-weight it or add helpers.
I had to add a rope system to my pool to get the creepy crawly to all the spots.

Not the best fix - but keeps the pool clean.
