My Hayward pool sweep gets stuck when it goes over the drain at the bottom of the pool

    There is a simple clip available from Main Drain Clip-On (maindrainclipon.com) that gets between the drain cover and the Navigator and prevents the cleaner from getting stuck.

    I bought a clay flower pot wide enough to go over the main drain cover. Now the pool vac will go around the drain a bit but does not get stuck!

It could be worn shoes on your pool cleaner causing the problem, but it is most likely just that you need to get a ring drain cover to cover your anti-vortex drain. It creates a smoother surface and is designed specifically to work with in ground automatic pool cleaners that are getting stuck on the drain.

There is a simple clip available from Main
Drain Clip-On that gets between the drain cover and the Navigator pool cleaner and keeps the cleaner from getting stuck. Clip is easy to install and can be installed from the side of the pool with the "installation tool" without getting into the water.

Location of drain plug on Hayward H series heater ?


There should be two. Remove the metal cover on opposite side of plumbing side and the "Return" heater will be exposed. There is normally a plug there. On "Header/Plumbing" side, there should be a plug on bottom of the in/out header, below the plumbing.

My hayward navigator pool sweep does not move. we have replaced feet and flaps. . . . .


The first question would be do you have the proper amount of suction to make it work. You didn't say if you had a dedicated vac line or if you plug into the skimmer. Can you reach through the hole in the bottom and spin the turbine easily with your finger. It may have eaten a rock and is stuck. If so, loosen the one screw on the bottom, pull off that plate, and you will be able to see what is jamming the turbine. One last test is to hold one of the pods firmly and then trying to move the other pod. It should not move anymore that a quarter inch or so. If it moves freely you have a broken "A" frame that will need to be replaced.

POOL CLEANER GETS STUCK ON THE MAIN DRAIN


If it's an older Navigator and it just recently started to hang up on the drain cover, replace the throat assembly, part 29. The lugs or hold offs on the bottom of the assembly have worn down and are not breaking the suction as the Navigator travels over the top of the domed drain cover. Replaced mine and no longer have the "my navigator gets stuck on the main drain" problem.

Stuck barracuda


It is probably not a problem with the shoes. These pool cleaners (and automatic pool cleaners in general) often get stuck on the main drain since the implementation on the new anti-entrapment drains. There is a ring that you can buy that goes on the drain. It is designed specifically for preventing pool cleaners from getting caught on the main drain.

The Hayward Navigator pool sweep does not move. The pressure is 7.5, the suction seems to be okay, and the "flippers" move, but the pool sweep just sits there.


You may need to replace the pads on the flippers. You can get new 'feet' for your cleaner at any dealer . They just pull off and press on, They go on only one way so check the tabs before you press them on.
