Hayward tiger shark Qc problem
Since new when I pull the cleaner out of the pool a lot of what it collected falls right back in.
Is there a flapper or something missing from my unit?

On your bottom lid, are the flaps closing when you lift the clearner out of the water?Untitled.jpg

I have no flaps I’ll take a picture and post it thank you very much
You may have the flaps but are possibly jammed in the open position. They're spring loaded and supposed to close when suction stops. I know on the Aquabot classic same issue if flaps don't return to the closed position dirt comes out with the water when being removed from pool.
