SO, our first summer with pool is coming to a close. As I have stated in the past, since we are in AZ I am going to try and just cover and leave the pool up over the winter. I am ready to cover it - but I am having a small problem.
Our Intex auto pool cleaner (robot) is only going a single direction. I have cleaned it out (it was pretty full), and confirmed it is not any wheel issue -- But the water only squirts out one direction and it ends up sitting in the same place along the wall forever.
Obviously I can just deal with this next spring as needed - but I would like it to continue to run for a few hours a day even over the winter to keep it as clean as possible. I am not exactly sure how these things work as far as changing deciding when to switch directions - when I take off the filter on it, it doesn't seem complicated, but I have not taken out the big white piece inside - my guess is something is possibly clogged in there - but I don't really know.
Thanks for all the help this summer.
