How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

If Kreepy Krauly is not moving or not pulsating. Check that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached (usually a skimmer). Check for debris in the filter or [pump basket]. Check for debris in Kreepy Krauly flapper.
If you have a suction pool cleaner that is not moving, check the cleaner hose. It should be firmly attached to the suction line in the skimmer or the cleaner line. If you check these and they are all connected, the next thing to do would be to make sure there are no air leaks in the hose.
Suction Cleaner does not move or stops and starts

Check the pump to identify if there is water in the basket. If no water is present, check for a blockage in the pools system (skimmer box, pump basket etc) to ensure the fault is not with the suction cleaner.

If the water is flowing through the pool drain and the pool cleaner at the same time, a suction force is created between the two and the cleaner may not have enough forward force to break the suction lock, and the cleaner will stay in a stationary position over the drain cover.
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.
If your Zodiac pool cleaner stops and starts, the first thing you might want to do is check the suction flow coming through the hose. You will need your pump on for this operation. Included with this Zodiac pool cleaner is a pool pulse, and it has numbers on it.
Hoses are twisting (like a pretzel).

If the cleaner is turning in one direction only, this will cause the hoses to twist. This is a sign the gearbox needs to be replaced. If the cleaner turns both ways with a stop in-between, place the cleaner on the pool floor. Observe the cleaner.

Fluidra is a multinational, Spanish-listed company focused on developing innovative products, services and IoT solutions for the residential and commerical pool markets, globally.
If it is looked after well it can last up to 15 years. A Zodiac Pool Cleaner is made of top-quality material, however, it works in an incredibly harsh environment!
To fix a clog in the hose, feed one end into a garbage bag, and poke the other end with the back of a mop pole, until you push the clog material out into the garbage bag. To fix a clog in the vacuum, whether it is a canister or bag, use your finger to feel for a clog. Pull as much of it out as you can and discard.
Most people don`t know that your Kreepy Krauly swimming pool cleaner is designed to stay in the pool, working away night and day, so you don`t have to.
HOW LONG SHOULD A KREEPY KRAULY RUN? Just as long as it needs to, which is generally about 2-4 hours depending on the size of the pool and the amount of debris. Best practice is to remove Kreepy from the pool after you are satisfied with the results.
check for leaks or kinks in the tubing. ensure the filter is not wet (keep a backup filter with your supplies) ensure the float shut-off is not activated (if this is part of your suction machine) check for canister leaks and cracks.
Cleaners aren`t meant to stay in the pool 24/7. This is true for all cleaners. Pressure side cleaners run on a schedule every day so why take it out? Leaving the cleaner in the pool 24/7 increases its exposure to corrosive chemicals in the water, such as chlorine or shock.
A normal pool valve setting would have the skimmer valve(s) fully open, main drain half-open and spa drain fully closed. To operate a suction pool cleaner or manually vacuum the pool, you can close other skimmers, or close the main drain, to obtain more suction through the skimmer you are using.
The easiest test method is to use soapy water using simply water and dish soap. Suction side leaks lead to common issues like difficulty priming the pump, air bubbles, or low pressure and/or water flow.
Polaris, part of Zodiac Pool Products, has a wide range of pool cleaners powered by water pressure and robotic.
4 Steps for Dealing with Error Code 10

Check the floating cable connection to the control box. If the connection isn`t secure, tighten it and see if it clears the code. Check for corrosion or bent pins at the connection point. If there`s corrosion, remove it and check to see if the code is cleared.

How often should I vacuum my swimming pool? In general, it`s a good idea to vacuum your pool once a week. You should also vacuum your swimming pool any time you notice large amounts of debris, dirt, or leaves on the floor of the pool (for example, your pool may need vacuuming after a heavy storm).
The rule of thumb for pool maintenance is to run your pump for eight hours per day.
When rainwater and `run off` enter the pool, they can change your water`s pH, calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), alkalinity, and other chemical levels as well as bring contaminants such as dirt and debris into the pool.
Do You Run a Pool Pump While Swimming? While you can run your pump while taking a dip, it is not necessary so long as it has been running recently enough to ensure the water is clean and debris-free.
Many pool owners who have a robotic pool cleaner think it will do all the work for them. While it is certainly true that your pool cleaner does most of the heavy lifting, there is one thing you don`t want to skip out on. It`s vital that you brush your pool!

My swimming pool. I have just had my fifth IC 40 Intellichlor chlorine generator installed in 4 years at a cost of over $900 today. Each one has worked for no more than 8 months. The first three were replaces under three year warranty, the fourth by a factory rep and I bought the fifth today. The first three all failed with Flow Chk PCB error message. The fourth just stopped working on Sunday, no power or lights. A local Pentair warranty person, whom I paid a Service Call, unplugged the unit, opened the small power center cover, showed me the green light indicating that there was power, plugged in a new IC 40 which worked immediately (as did the other four). I asked if I should replace the power center and he said that it’s basically just a transformer and is working fine. We do get occasional power blips that make the clocks on microwaves, etc blink, but I thought that the power center essentially isolates the cell from these. I do have a Florida Power and Light surge protector on the electrical box that brings power into the house. I have now talked to the pool builder, two Pentair warranty repairmen and one factory rep. I am at a loss. They all tell me they have no idea why these units fail after less than a year. This last IC 40 was installed 3/24/2010, version 2.0 and now failed in less than 5 months. Should I replace the power center that the IC 40 plugs into. Any other suggestions. I have been told that this is the best chlorinator. I don’t want to keep replacing units. By the way, each unit had been spotless inside. I keep the water chemicals and salt levels at ideal levels. The units have never worked long enough to get dirty inside. The power center is connected to an Intellitouch control system outside with an indoor control panel. Last time I called Pentair North Carolina and got some smart alec tech person that had no suggestions. Please Help if you can.
ANSWER : I’ve had the same experiance. On my fifth one as well. Fail every year. No idea why.

I have the Intex Sand/Pump pool filter Model SF 20110. It’s been running real great for the last 4 months. However recently it has been tripping the internal overloads and I have found the pump motor to be very hot when I put my hand against it. I have tried several different solutions, such as a level ground platform that was clear of any obstructions, made sure that the motor vents under the motor was clear of anything that would prevent air flow. I used a non electrical type of lubricate on the impeller. When I would turn on the pump the rotor would not turn but only would hum very loudly and then slowly begin to turn. I also noticed that the motor’s rotor shaft would not turn to freely due the tightness around the rotor’s shaft. After using the lubricate the shaft would turn a little easier. I used an amp meter on the incoming voltage line and the motor would run at 4.5 amp. And yet it still overheated and tripped the motor overloads. I can only think that the motor is still not getting enough ventilation. I have check and cleared all the incoming lines and found nothing block the pumps input or output lines. Any suggestion?
ANSWER : I just looking into this issue my self. The pump cools itself by a internal fan, which is run by the motor. Well I took the housing cover off to find out all the fan blades have broken off and were setting in the base of the pump. Once you remove the fan blades from covering the air intake, it might be fine. I will find out my self once summer gets here.

My boyfriend said it was not good to let pump run all day but i think hes wrong. Can you give me some good tips on keeping my pool crystal clear?
ANSWER : Some pumps are 24hr 7days pumps some are not and should be on a timer. time usually run for 8 hours max a day. you can get a time from most pool leisure places. the pump will say if its a 24hr pump if not then would say its a timer type.

Hello,
I am renting a home in NJ, and would like to open our pool. I am not very savvy when it comes to inground pools… i tried to figure out how to turn my Hayward S244T Hi Rate Sand Filter on, and get it going. While i did manage to get water pumping into the pool, it was not filtering out.

Can you please explain to me what i am suppose to do, and how to do it. I have an owners manual, but i find it very hard to follow, and everything is already installed, i am just having problems filtering it out.

Thanks!
Christine Mincer

Slide out quit working and fuse on battery blows everytime I chan
ANSWER : Look under the coach near the slide and look for a pinched or bare wire. Sounds like you have a dead short to ground and could be difficult to find. Check the wiring to the slide motor, could be between the slide switch and the motor. Take a Volt meter and set it to Ohms. With the fuse out check to see if you get an Ohms reading between fuse wire and frame of coach. If you get a reading you have a short. Also check the power wire on the slide motor to motor case. If you get a reading the motor is shoted and needs to be replaced.Thanks for using FixyaJerry
