I have a Zodiac Baracuda MX-8 cleaner, which I purchased last year. It is on a dedicated line. For a few months now it hardly moves around at all. It will either not move at all or it will move in a small circle in the middle of the pool. I have followed all of the instructions in the manual, setting the correct pressure with the gauge, turned the inlets to point down, gotten the filter cleaned, and yet it still doesn't seem to move.
I suspect that I am getting air into the system via the hoses. I find that these interlocking hoses are not as good as the old ones I used to have for my Hayward unit. I tried the leaf catcher, but found it so kludgey to interconnect that I removed it.
Any thoughts or ideas would be great. Also if anyone knows of a good technique to seal the hose connections, that might help. Thanks!
