Kreepy Kruiser Features
My KKKruiser keeps getting stuck in one place in the deep end of my pool. Is there an adjustment or is this just a lousy product?
I have owned the Kreepy cruiser for about 2 years and have had to continue to up right the device. I have adjusted the weights a hundred times trying to balance it. still I have to go out to the pool and upright the unit on a continued basis. any advise would be appreciated.
Hello Mark, There are a few factors that can affect the cleaner causing it to tilt over. First, let's assume you are using the same hoses that came with the cleaner. If not, other vacuum hoses can be heavier and cause this issue. Second, you would need to be using the correct number of hoses. You would measure the length of hose from your connection point to the furthest point in the pool and then add one extra section. Third would be the placement of the hose weights. Fourth, you need to have adequate suction. If you have continued issues, you can refer to the Kreepy Krauly Kruiser Installation Guide or contact the manufacturer directly at: 1-800-831-7133.
I have a diving pool and my barracuda now only goes in the deep end I can't get it to clean the upper portion, why?
Hi, According to the Kreepy Kruiser Installation and User's Guide you may need to adjust the eyeball diverters (return jets), verify that you have the correct hose length and or make sure that the hose weights are in the correct position.
my vacuum will not more is there a part I need . thanks sue
Hi Sue, You can follow the different troubleshooting steps in the Kreepy Krauly Kruiser Installation and User's Guide to try getting the cleaner to start working again.
I have the 360042, but the seal I have on that model catches the main drain cover and gets stuck a lot. Can I buy the replacement seal for the K60430 and put it on my 360042? Will it fit and work appropriately?
The replacement Seal/Skirt from the Kreepy Kruiser Inground Pool Cleaner (K60430) will not fit on the Kreepy Krauly Pool Cleaner for Vinyl & Fiberglass Pools (360042).
Does this cleaner attach to the pool filter or does it have an independent bag for debris?
Can I use this cleaner on a vinyl liner pool?
The K60400 Kreepy Kruiser can be used in a vinyl liner pool however the manufacturer recommends the following: Before installing the cleaner in a vinyl liner pool: Check liner closely for signs of deterioration or damage from age, chemicals, pool wall damage, etc. If any damage is found, have a quali?ed pool professional make all the necessary repairs. Also, if there are stones, roots, etc., under the liner, remove them before installing the cleaner. Certain vinyl liner patterns are particularly susceptible to surface wear, pattern removal, ink rubbing off of, or serious scratches to the pattern caused by objects coming into contact with the vinyl surface, including automatic pool cleaners. Pentair Water Pool and Spa, Inc. is not responsible for any pattern removal, abrasions or markings on vinyl liners.
(5 out of 5 stars) Kreepy Kruiser works well

Pros: It doesn't get stuck.
The Kreepy Kruiser doesn't look like much when you take it out of the box but it does a very good job of cleaning a pool. My old Barracuda used to get stuck but the Kruiser seems to just keep going. It even vacuums up the vertical walls if you turn up the suction. Its a good cleaner that costs less than most.

Pros: keeps pool clean
Cons: the flap wears out and must be replaced once a year
I had this for three years now and it has been through some battles in my pool, it is very good I had to replace the Flap a couple of times because it stretches out and starts coming off but thats it. It is annoying but I can live with that, I had the barracuda before that and it was just terrible. If it was not for the flap or 18" mesh (i call it flap but I dont really know the name for it right now) I would give it a 5 star
