    Diver Dave gets stuck for no apparent reason

    We just purchased Diver Dave for our 28' Intex. I think he'd be a great cleaner if I didn't have to go out and give him a nudge every 20 minutes. Can any of you think of why it stops moving after awhile? It's usually when he gets to a wall.

    Update: After surfing the web for some time, I followed the advice of another user and went through all the links in the hose, making sure they were all completely seated,even though the instruction manual says they don't have to be. This made a HUGE difference! Apparently, as the cleaner moves about, air is drawn in through the connections and collects in the hoses which cause the device to lose suction. I think I also may have an air leak somewhere in pump system. We plan to hard plumb everything this weekend which should take care of any leaky hoses.
