Check your pump pressure on the suction side. If there is any air gap in your pump strainer pot (if you have a see thru see thru strainer cover) then you have a leak on the suction side. Auto matic cleaners need ample pressure for them to move. or you might need to backwask the filter check your pressure gauge. If none of these help its more then likely the gears in the cleaner. also check your cleaners hoses

SOURCE: KREEPY-KRAULY Ties itself into a knot while cleaning.

Solution:
We removed 2 portions of hose located at the Krauly end, and attached those at the filter end, then we took the 2 portions located at the filter end, and placed those at the beginning of the Krauly end.
Apparently the problem was that the 2 portions of hosing at the Krauly end had become "twisted" and continually enabled the Krauly to move in the knot tying direction. By replacing these 2 portions at the Krauly end with "un-twisted" portions from the filter end, this ended the twisting cycle.
The Krauly has been running for 48hours straight now without a single knotting episode.
If we see the knot tying direction beginning again, we will repeat these steps, continually replacing with un-twisted portions.
At 1st we thought we needed to purchase some new tubing, but we didn't have to, only needed to move around some hosing.

SOURCE: Hi my kreepy krauly wont stay flat on the bottom

Do you have any hose weights fitted to the kreepy hose? If you do,take it off and see if it makes a difference.Is this happening while the kreepy is operating?

SOURCE: My kreepy Krauly will start up and within 5 stops working.

If it is a year old, replace the flapper valve. Also check your water flow and make sure it is adequate. These units are subject to wear on the foot and flapper and these should be changed each season

Check for air leaks in your hoses, your pump or in the plumbing system. Also check for clogs in your pump impeller if you have any problems with your basket. Good luck.

Kreepy Krauly has very little suction thru head but plenty thru hose


most all pool cleaners generate there motion with a thing called a venturi ! thats inside it usually moves a small propeller from the action of water being sucked hard thru the hose , on most the path to this "propeller" is different than that of pool debris , i suspect this alt path is part ways blocked , a simple way to clear is to connect garden hose to suction port of cleaner and force water Back in other direction other than that sometimes dissasembly is need to lube and clean hidden ports inside

Kreepy krauly regulator valve won't close, it's always open so the cleaner doesn't move. There's plenty of suction,


It has debris stuck in it. Normally it is not too hard to clear it out. If you can't clear it, try to run the Kreepy without the regulator.

Hi, I also bought my Bull Shark Kreepy Krauly recently - 3 months ago. Since day 1 it liftes up at the end and does not move flat on the surface of the swimming pool. Please assist.


First, check for debris in the pool cleaners flapper. This can cause a lack of suction the floor. Also, check for proper hose balance. If the hose rests at a greater than 45 degree angle, the hose is too light and you need to move the hose weights closer to the cleaner. If the hose rests at a less than 45 degree angle, you need to move the weights away from the cleaner.

My Kreepy Krauly won't move. I've checked the hose for holes and also replaced the vinyl suction cup on the bottom but it won't budge. Doesn't appear that there is much suction. Could it be something...


Yes, it could. Check the filter and pump for debris. This could severely restrict movement in these pool cleaners. Also, check the flaps of the Kreepy Krauly for debris. Also, check to make sure that the main drain and ALL suction lines, except the one the cleaner is attached to, are closed. This might also be why you have a lack of suction. My final suggestions would be to check the return line water flow and make sure that it is strong enough.

Kreepy crawly keeps stopping but nothing is blocked


With Kreepy Krauly pool cleaners, it is usually something blocked so you have taken the perfect first step in finding your problem. You will also want ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the line to which the Kreepy Krauly is attached. Also, if this is a new purchase, it could be that your pump and filter system are too small to properly propel the cleaner.

My kreepy krauly seems to have good suction, but moves very slow. I usually hear a tic,tic,tic,tic, But, lately it has been tic....tic......tic Very Slow


Try these suggestions to get your automatic pool cleaner working properly:
• Check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached.
• Check for debris in the filter or pump basket.
• Check for debris in Kreepy Krauly’s flapper. Debris may prevent flapper movement or restrict flow.
• Check the hose to ensure there are no leaks.
• Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system.
• Check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

My kreepy krauly is moving at half speed and sometimes stops moving all together. All tubing is good, filter has just been cleaned, any ideas?
