The bumper on a Sta-Rite Great White cleaner helps make the cleaner buoyant which allows the cleaner to access the shallow end of the swimming pool. It also absorbs the impact when the cleaner hits the pool walls. If the cleaner doesn’t go the shallow end of the swimming pool, you will likely need to replace the bumper inserts, the bumper or both. This guide will walk you through replacing both.
Your repair has now been completed and use of your swimming pool cleaner can be resumed. If the cleaner moves erratically, turn off the pump and filter and check any parts that were installed.
