How to Resolve Issues with Slow or Stuck Pool Cleaners

If your robot pool vacuum cleaner is sitting at the bottom of the pool without moving or is moving slowly, it may be due to a couple of factors. Addressing these issues can restore the cleaner’s functionality.

Drain Outlet Obstruction

One reason your cleaner might be stuck is that it has been caught in the drain outlet on the pool floor. The cleaner has mechanisms to attempt to float free, but if it remains stuck for several minutes, manual intervention with a pole can help.

Filter and Debris Management

Another reason for slow movement could be a clogged filter. If the pool is particularly dirty, the cleaner may suck up a lot of debris in a short period, which can clog the filter. Regularly checking and cleaning the filter ensures that the cleaner operates smoothly.

Ensuring Smooth Operation

By addressing these issues promptly, you can ensure that your automatic pool vacuum cleaner operates efficiently, maintaining a clean and inviting pool. Regular maintenance checks can prevent these issues from recurring, saving you time and effort in the long run.
