Thread: Cleaner now hates the deep end..

    Cleaner now hates the deep end..

    Pool cleaner started the season working well,covering all areas. The last few days it has stayed in the shallow end of the pool and not going toward the deep end. I have replaced the piston,randomizer bar and have tried hoses of length suggested by manual,and longer hoses.Filter in hose is clean and filter in ramdonizer bar area is clean. Water is coming from all 4 jets in the cleaner. I will replace the pressure releif valve tomorrow and hope for the best. I'm stumped on what to try to get the little fella to cover the whole area again.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    just an fyi in case anyone else has the same problem.......... I had installed the the poolskim (great device) and my pressure had lowered just enough to affect the cleaner. Placed the reducer tab in one return to raise the pressure some. Now all's well. Poolskim is happy,,,cleaner is happy to wonder all over the pool again
