1.It seems that if I run the cleaner in the skimmer with the dedicated suction line for the vacuum closed it works properly. If I run it in the dedicated line it doesn't have enough suction to properly move. It used to work this way prior to renovating the pool when I had a 1 speed 2hp pump. I know have a 3hp variable speed pump and even running it at 2750 it doesn't seem to be enough. I am unable to shut off any of the other suction lines main drain, skimmer etc. The only line I can turn off is the spa which is always off unless in spa mode. Should the main drain be turned off or down when using this function as I have a 3 way valve installed on this pipe and there is no way to turn it down or off without eliminating the skimmer and dedicated line all together.
2. Another option would just be to not use the auto cleaner however I would hate to have to vacuum the pool manually once a week or so.
Thanks for the help.
