For pools of 4-7′ deep, use 2 weights, one 4″ to 12″ from the cleaner and one 6′ from the cleaner. For pools from 8′ to 12′ deep, use a third weight, placed 10 ft. from the swivel end of the cleaner. Balancing the Kreepy hose is the term for adjusting the Kreepy weights, to balance the hose and cleaner in the water.

One may also ask, why does my pool cleaner hose get tangled? Hose Length Nothing can cause tangles more than a hose that is far too long for your pool.

This floating hose is free to move and for some reason loves to move around itself causing a tangle.

Just Add Hose Weights It's a simple problem to solve. Just add weights to the hose and give the surface robot 2 inches of clearance.

Why does my kreepy krauly stop?

If Kreepy Krauly slows or stops and air bubbles enter the pool at the return line.

Why does my pool cleaner get stuck?

In order to prevent the cleaner from getting stuck in the first place, you'll have to adjust the suction by controlling the water flow through it. The stronger the water flow, the more likely it is to get stuck in one place. You need some suction though or the pool won't get cleaned properly.

Can you leave pool vacuum in pool?

Manual Model
A manual vacuum should be run as long as it takes to remove all visible dirt and debris on the bottom and sides of the pool. For a small, well-maintained pool, this usually takes around 20 minutes. For a very dirty small pool, or a maintained larger pool, it may take around 45 minutes.

Why is my pool vacuum not suctioning?

Suction-Side Problems
If the vacuum doesn't work, it's usually either because air is getting into the vacuum hose or into the suction side of the pool pump. The presence of air in the lines is preventing the system from drawing water as it should.

Do you remove skimmer basket when vacuuming pool?

Remove the lid from the skimmer, and also remove the skimmer basket and float valve. Cover the free end of the vacuum hose with the palm of your hand and quickly lift the hose over the pool deck and into the skimmer through the opening at the top.
