    I too recently read about something like little ramps.....but kind of ignored it since I don't have a cleaner like that.

    Google came up with this low tech, low cost method: Pool vac stuck on drain | David Vielmetter

    and shows this: Hayward Main Drain Bumper - SP1048AVH -

    That is one of the only frustrations with the Dolphin in my opinion. My Dolphin is a different model and from time to time it'll get stuck on a 90* angle (one of the stairs or the built in seating bench). If home and if I happen to notice it, I have to gently kick it out of there and then it is usually back its merry way. Otherwise I guess it just dies in place and I have to restart it again upon noticing many hours later.
