If your pool cleaner is moving slowly and not pulsating, there are a couple things that you will want to check and/or adjust. Make sure that the main drain is closed. It is a common problem with these pool cleaners not operating correctly if the drain is not closed. Use your flow gauge to make sure that there is adequate flow. Poor water flow through the cleaner can cause these problems. Backwash the filter and clean out any skimmer baskets. Clogs can cause loss of suction and prevent movement. Make sure that the diaphragm is not damaged. Check for hose leaks and air entering the line at all connections.

Water circulation is OK. barracuda g3 does not pulsate, hoses are clear


If the cleaner is not pulsating, then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. Your cleaner should have come with a suction gauge that you put on the end of the hose in place of the cleaner. It's a clear tube with a spring and plastic piece inside that indicates high, low, or normal. Use this to check your suction. If you don't have one see if you can get one at the local pool supply house, they may even have one you can borrow. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

My baracuda is not moving....I took it apart and nothing is caught inside. The filters arer clean. I adjusted suction as well with no results


Is it pulsating? If not then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. you said it was not clogged so check closely for tears. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. If this doesn't solve the problem let me know, these cleaners are very straight forward. Good luck!

My baracuda is pulsating and moving but surfaces


The control should be below the water, and if you cut the suction down that should help with the cleaner.

Barracuda Zodiac G3 is not pulsating. It's got


either some debris is caught in the diaphragm or it's deformed enough to render it inoperable. Unthread the nut just above the handle and pull it apart, then push the white tube downward until it comes out of the bottom of the unit. Inspect the diaphragm to see it there is any debris in it or if it is deformed. Usually the diaphragm has a uniform opening, if the gap is wide, it will not function. The most common problem is that the diaphragm needs replaced. Hope this helps.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.


I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
