Thank you Brett! I got the 14” Intex pump and sand filter and now it does wheelies and sometimes acts like it’s putting on a Seaworld show! Then it calms down and does it’s job without getting stuck. 105EA120-78CD-4EA0-BA2A-8A720C396655.png

Usually when it’s doing wheelies like that it means that there is some air trapped in it. When you put the cleaner into the pool make sure there is no air in the hose and tip the cleaner up on its front or back to try to get all of the air out of the cleaner as well.
