    Zodiac Baracuda MX-8 doesn't move

    I just bought an mx8 and did everything I was supposed to do to install it to my pool skimmer and it does not move. I removed the hose and there is suction through the hose. I don't get it. Can anyone help out with this?

    Hello - did you check the flow through the hose at the vacuum connection point using the provided regulator?
