    Aqua big only cleans one side of pool

    My aqua bug only cleans one side of the pool, I think it is due to my water circulation being to fast. Any one else experience this the the bug or the whale?

    That's very possible. Have you tried pointing the eyeball to the surface and straight out, or a little reveresed, while the cleaner is in the pool? That usually helps.

    Does it still turn in both directions or does it just go on one direction? Could be something in the gears if its not doing its usual left and right movements. As for the return jet, make sure its pointed down.

    It certainly could be something clogging it up. Have you taken it apart and cleaned it good?
