Richard W.asked

I have newly tiled my pool. My Hy-Clor Mk2 worked adequately on the old marble sheen surface ( abit of the usual tracking) but does not consistently move forward on the new tiles even though it is pulsating healthily. Also it does not seem to be sitting consistnetly flat on the bottom of the pool. Any suggestions?

I have changed to a Rebel pool cleaner 100 percent better

Try moving the yellow hose weights closer to the cleaner. Might need two at that end. There will be less resistance with the tiles than the marble finish.

Is there a larger bump ring available to replace the 330 one supplied as standard? I have a small pool with square corners and the cleaner gets s=tuck in the corners. I suspect a bigger diameter bump ring may be the solution? Thanke Rich

Have to check with the manufacturer. I found them very good to deal with.

Hi Josh.
I suggest you contact Hy-Chlor on their 1800 number - they are quite helpful.

the vaccum is making its way around the pool and has plenty of suction, but while it is working the skimmer basket vessel next to the pump and the salt cell vessel lose water through them. When vaccum is not attached they fill up again. Skimmer basket o ring seems intact have applied silicon with no effect. Can you make suggestions?

How do I prevent it becoming stuck in corner?Brand new, hammer works fine. Weights added. The hose is approximately 1 length longer than the pool length. Filter is clean yet with the vacuum added does not achieve pressure. I have tried all spectrums of the speed control.

Hi guys, am looking at purchasing a mk2 but on the box it states not to be used if your pump and filter are over 10m away from the skimmer. Anyone had any issues with this?

I have a Poisedon Creepy Crawly and it has stopped working. Plenty of suction, no obstructions, no cracked hoses etc. It seems to stick hard in one spot on the bottom of the pool and won't move. Have taken the hammer out and cleaned out but still does not work. Pool pump is still working fine, with water still travelling through the creepy crawly. Any help?

I'm not sure sorry. My pool is curved all around. The only places it doesn't reach are the two top steps.

Hi Everyone,
Been reading the review son this cleaner and day 2 ours is working fine, however the noise is loud. I'm sitting at the front of the house and the pool is out the back and I can hear it start up and go. I'm sure this will annoy our neighbours, is there any way to reduce the noise please?

I found that it works best without the weights and with hose 1m longer than your pool.

I returned mine in the end, it was hopeless as most the reviews say, got the bit more expensive one from bunnings, its ok but nowhere near as good as the old Kreepy. Dont loose your receipt in case your not satisfied

Check 2 things first. Check everywhere for a possible blockage and then check everywhere for an air leak. Also try a 3 minute backwash to get the pump reservoir full to the top.

My Poseidon pool cleaner that I bought at Bunnings no longer hammers or travels around the pool on initial start up.You have to manually move the mouth for it to start & it still wont move around the pool ?

That is a great advice. I put a washer right under the screw head as it is usually placed instead of beneath the plate and my 15month old Bunnings Poseidon started pulsating again!!
