very little suction on the pool suction

Postby Glo » Tue 22 Jan, 2008 17:17

Hi,

I have an inground pool. about 14 yo. Never really had a problem before.

I have very little suction on the pool cleaner (from the side of the wall. ) When I turn the lever to the skimmer it is fine, lots of pressure. when I turn it to the suction from the cleaner on the bottom, the pressure falls to 0 and no water flow. I have tried to open up the valve and push a garden hose in there to flush out leaves etc that may be blocked ( have the value on the wall in the water open) but only some water comes out and no debris.

right now I alternate using the skimmer with and without the bottom cleaner attached.

any suggestions.

the suction from the cleaner on the bottom

Is it a barracuda/ kreepy type cleaner or built in one?
