Any tips on how to keep the suction-side PoolCleaner inside the pool? It keeps trying to leave.
I've been using a Zodiac MX8. It requires nearly constant cleaning to maintain smooth operation and the cleaner itself is pretty restrictive on water flow. For me the MX8 has been more trouble than it's worth. My friend let me borrow his "The PoolCleaner" suction-side cleaner and while it's flow characteristics are better I can't get it to stay home. I really like the unit because in my plumbing configuration it allows for better flow and smoother pump operation. When my MX8 operates it adds more "head" (i think I'm using that term correctly) and my flow rate decreases a bit, creating a small loss in vacuum in my pump basket. It sucks a bit of air through my lid.
Anyway, even when the PC tilts and loses suction its wheels still have traction, and it can make it up my zero-entry/beach-entry grade causing it to surface and get stuck above-water.
Has anyone solved this problem? I'd really like to replace my MX8 with this thing, but can't have my pump lose prime all the time.
Thanks and Happy Holidays!
