Hi All,

I'm having trouble with my Zodiac Barracuda G3 getting stuck on my light. My pool is curved where the light is installed and the fins get stuck under the cracks. I really like the Barracuda because my pool has pebbles and it tends to handle these well, but it keeps getting stuck.

Any ideas?

That's too bad We loved our G3, did a great job. We had to remove the wheel shaped bumper, it kept getting stuck on the main drain. Do you run it full blast? We'd just put the 1hp single speed pump on full skimmer-G3. Sounds like that's a pretty big gap around the light for the fins to get stuck in it. Can you stuff a o-ring in there or something?

Yeah, I was thinking about trying to stuff something in the gap but I could use some guidance about what has worked for people.
