Try adjusting your hose weights to see if that corrects the problem. When your cleaner is resting on the bottom of the pool, it should be at 45 degree angle. If it is tilting back toward the hose, try moving the weights closer to the cleaner. If it is tilting forward, try moving the weights away from the cleaner. You might also need to add more hose weight. If the pool cleaner does not have enough weight to hold it down, it will float. You will also want to make sure that you have adequate water flow through the cleaner.

Hello i have a the pool cleaner and it keep turning upside down and then just stays at the bottom upside down and not cleaning. Can you give any suggestions. Thanks

Try adjusting the pool cleaners weights. A properly balanced hose will make the cleaner sit at a 45 degree angle when attached to the pool floor. If the cleaner is rising off the pool floor from the front of the cleaner first, move the weights closer to the cleaner. If the back is rising first, move the weights further back. You might also need to add a hose weight (part #W83247). The only other thing that you can check is your water flow. If you do not have adequate water flow, the cleaner will not perform properly.

I have a dolphin pool cleaner and it won't sink. Any advice?

If these automatic pool cleaners will not sink, 9 times out of 10 it is because air is caught in the filter bag. The best solution is to turn the Dolphin upside down under water for a few minutes to remove the air or to machine wash the filter bag.

Directions on removing filters

Removing the filter on these automatic pool cleaners is easy. It should be in the easy open bottom. After you disconnect, turn the unit upside down and locate and loosen the captive screw. You can clean this area and reapply the captive screw.

Phanton pool sweep just turns in a circle upside down

This definitely sounds like an issue with the pool cleaners hose. Look for a bend or kink near the connection between the hose and cleaner. If you notice one, try stretching the hose on a flat surface in the sun for several hours. If this doesnt work, you will probably have to replace the hose.

Dolphin pool cleaner won't go up to top of the pool , only half way up the wall

Most times when a cleaner won't reach the water level in a pool it is usually due to the internal floats being removed or they are no longer in good condition.
Turn the machine upside down, and remove the bag assembly. Should be foam in the plastic housing, underneath, if not replace.
