    Old Navigator - no info

    When we bought our house last fall, the owners left behind an old Hayward Navigator. However, they left no info, manuals, etc... The unit works fine, but it gets hung up regularly (most commonly on the main drain). I have no info on how this is supposed to work - so I welcome any input anyone might have.

    Is this supposed to be programmed for the pool in some way? Is the a particular location where it should begin? Is there something I am doing that is causing it to get stuck on the main drain (I am shutting off that drain while vacuming).

    Pool details:

    18x36 Vinyl In-Ground pool
    25,000-30,000 gallons (estimate, will know more when I can get in and get an average depth)
    DE filter
    Pump info unknown - I'll get that soon!

    If you have too much vacuum to the navigator it will get stuck you only need 5 lbs of vacuum to run the navigator. Another thing to look for is worn out pod shoes they are located on the bottom of the cleaner

    Check the shoes for sure. I run mine between 5 - 8 lbs but you may need to just mess with yours till you find the right setting.
