Similarly one may ask, why does my automatic pool cleaner stay in the deep end?
The cleaner does not reach all areas of pool, stays in deep end. Hose length is incorrect. Adjust hose to required length using the measuring tape included with the cleaner.
Keeping this in view, why isnt my automatic pool vacuum working?
When a suction cleaner is sluggish or slow, it’s usually a clogged pump basket or dirty filter that is to blame. Other problems include holes in the cleaner hose, sucking air into the hose, or the filter pump could be drawing in air, reducing water-flow volume.
Why does my pool vacuum not have suction?
Rule out the obvious causes of poor vacuum first. Make sure the water level in the pool is sufficient and air is not being sucked in through skimmer inlets. Add water to the pool to submerge the skimmers if necessary. Verify that the pump strainer basket and the skimmers are free of debris that may obstruct water flow.
It’s still best to handle all the tasks of cleaning and maintaining your pool, especially if it’s not that big. Getting an automatic pool cleaner may save us some time as they lessen the dirt or debris we have to clean. However, you will still have to skim the pool surface as they only clean the walls and floor.

You can swim while your bot cleans the pool, but it’s better not to. Swimming churns up the water. If the machine is in the water at the time, the current will buffet it, making it harder for it to complete its work. It’ll have to work harder to cover the same ground.
Leaving the cleaner in the pool 24/7 increases its exposure to corrosive chemicals in the water, such as chlorine or shock. Over time, these chemicals break down parts in the cleaner and discolor the cleaner. The truth of the matter is – everyone leaves them in the pool, pretty much all the time.
The most common cause for a Kreepy to stop working is clogged filter sand. This is easy to diagnose because whenever you backwash the pool filter, you’ll find that the Kreepy works like a bomb for 10 minutes. Then it gets sluggish and slows down or stops again.
