The Kreepy Krauly pool cleaners are becoming quite popular these days. In fact, they are considered as one of the best available suction side pool cleaners. They can conveniently clean the bottom as well as the sides of your pool and keep them free from any kind of debris and dirt. Like any other pool accessories, the Kreepy Krauly parts need maintenance for working efficiently for a longer period of time.

The following are some tips that will help you to fix most of the common problems of this type of cleaners:

In case, the cleaner gets stuck on the main drain you will need to check whether or not the valve is closed. Since this device collects all the dirt particles from the bottom of your pool, it is common that some of its parts may get fully or mostly closed. To solve this problem, simply clean the valve and reattach it to the cleaner.

At times the main pool filter becomes dirty. To make sure that the filter is clean you will need to check it on a regular basis. This is essential for providing enough suction for your device. This problem is very common and can be easily dealt with.

When the water level of your swimming pool is too low, the Kreepy Krauly will not function properly. Since there is no water to pull from your pool, the pool pump will stop working. This, in turn, will not provide any kind of suction for the device to work from. Thus, make sure that your pool has the correct water level so that the parts of the cleaner can work effectively.

Another common problem occurs when the pump basket gets clogged with dirt particles. In such situations, the pool pump cannot to pull water and also fails to provide suction. Such debris can also get stuck at the bottom of the cleaner. This often happens while cleaning large debris and pebbles. At times, pool toys can also get stuck and cause similar problem. This restricts the water flow as well as the movement of the flapper. In case of such obstruction, turn off the pool pump and clean the device immediately.

The hose of Kreepy Krauly, like any other cleaning device, is vulnerable to leakage. This is more common with old hose sections or with those which has a crack. Needless to say, that in such situations the cleaner will not work properly. Thereby, you need to check these parts regularly to ensure that they are in good condition and are not causing any air leakage.
