If your Pentair Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark slows down and you have noticeable wear on the scrubbing teeth of your Pentair Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark Pad, you may have to replace the pad with a new one. This guide shows you how to replace the Pentair Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark Pad. Unfortunately the pad only comes mounted on the Pentair Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark Chassis, so you will also have to replace the chassis to replace the pad.
LIFT OUTER HOUSING - After the Vacuum Pad is completely off, you should be able to lift the Outer Housing straight up off the Chassis and Pad. The balance of this guide involves stripping the Pentair Kreepy Krauly Sand Shark control assemblies off of the Chassis to get down to the basic Chassis (and Pad).
PULL OUT OSCILLATOR - Turn the chassis over and pull the Oscillator straight out from the bottom of the Outer Housing. The Oscillator is clamped onto an inner Oscillator Sleeve so you may have to pry it off gently with a screwdriver. The 4 Sliding Seals are loosely attached to this Oscillator and may fall out when it is removed. Keep track of them and see how they are positioned before they fall off.
REATTACH SWIVEL HOUSING - With the Swivel inserted in the Swivel Housing, place the Swivel Housing on top of the Chassis. The four tabs on the bottom of the Housing should be over the four slots in the Chassis and the Clutch Clip should be over the Clutch Assembly Wheel. Press down on the Swivel Housing until it clicks. Check that all 4 tabs are engaged.
