Resolved Question

How can I get my stupid Kreepy Krawly to clean the middle of my pool?

It just goes round and round in circles, 24 hours a day, leaving a rotting pile of leaves and earthworms right in the middle of the pool. 69 mths ago

You can buy a small thing,i just cant remember the name that you put inline with the pipe just outside the weir thats prevent the pipe to wind up.I try a extra pipe at my pool but i had a champange seat and that extra pipe always gone in there and stand the whole day on one place and google google.Check your water outlets and change them towards the top and the end of the pool if you got 2 outlets.The water must blow near the surfuce but not out of the water.Something else i also did was to tie a rope onto the pipe in about the middle and pull the pipe in towards the weir so its shorter and force it to take a different rood.Play with lenght till you notice it reach the middle.The clever people told me its a lot to do with arch at the bottom of the pool and the side.Good luck.

Take him out of the pool. Talk nice and softly with him and put him back again

Try adusting your water outlet to change the flow of water into your swimming pool. This should direct the KreepyKrauly in a different direction.

Why not call a pool company and just ask for some advice?

Three verbal warnings and if that doesn't help then a disciplinary hearing.

Try what VlakteKind said - and also try adding an extra length of hose. It might feel more free to move everywhere with more piping?

I usually deplore cut-n-paste efforts but: "If Kreepy Krauly tracks in a repetitive pattern. Check the swivel on the top of Kreepy Krauly. It should turn freely. Check the return line water flow and re-direct as necessary with an eyeball diverter. Refer to page 11. Check Kreepy Krauly's hose to ensure it has not become bent or kinked. It only takes one bent or kinked hose section to hinder the cleaning coverage. One way to check for kinks in your hose is to lay each section flat on your pool's deck (or other flat surface). The hose should be perfectly straight and flat. Do not coil the hose when taking your Kreepy Krauly out of the pool because it will retain the coil shape, forming a bend or kink. If Kreepy Krauly is still hampered by the unique characteristics of your pool, regardless of the adjustments we've provided: Consider "Thruster", (Part # 3-370) the Kreepy Krauly accessory that aids random pattern coverage by automatically repositioning the hose to help free the cleaner from obstacles. Thruster keeps Kreepy Krauly out of tight spots in difficult-to-clean or uniquely-shaped pools. Ask your Kreepy Krauly dealer about this accessory." Oh, and you spelt Kreepy Krauly wrong. So you owe me three seconds of Google time.

Just buy a new one - or borrow your neigbours to see if his one works better

You could re-arrange the order of the hoses. This automatically changes the pool cleaners established path. There is a generic part (fits all brands) that acts as a fre-spinning connector between hoses, supposedly randomising the cleaners path.

I've also seen that adding an extra piece of pipe, or taking one away helps. you will have to experiment a bit. And changing the order of the pipes is also a great idea.

Kreepy Krauly's have feelings too, don't call them stupid.

Threaten to replace him with a Baracuda and see if it does the trick. You can also compliment him on the areas that he did clean properly and help him to believe in him self. Remember - Life as a Kreepy sucks!

Lengthen your pipes and watch the damn thing! Hubby says they are like a bad gardener - work for a couple of minutes and stand around for an hour - so they need to be watched!
