Product Description

The Flowkeepr valve for the Baracuda G3 pool cleaner is designed to regulate the rate of flow so that the pool pump and the G3 cleaner run properly. Pool pumps provide more gallon per minute flow than the G3 cleaner requires and the self adjusting flowkeeper valve provides a by-pass. The flowkeeper valve must be used in single skimmer pools for the G3 cleaner to run properly.

The corrugated side of the valve needs to be facing up connected to the cleaner hose.

how can you tell if the flowkeeper valve is bad. what will it be doing.
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/10/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

If the springs on the valve have gone bad,(in example corrosion), the plastic has broken allowing unwanted water flow into it, or if the valve is not staying in the position that you set it at then it may be time to replace it.

Hello David- The Flowkeeper Valve (w60050) part number 3237-130 can be adjusted by moving the bottom piece that onnects with the spring to ther 2 or 3 position. I would suggest moving it to a higher tension to see if that helps.

I had my G3 out of the pool for a month and when I went to put it back online it would not run and I noticed the flow keeper would open up, does not matter if the hose to the cleaner is connected or not. What could cause this and do flow keepers go bad?
 Reply

A  Answered on 9/15/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Stephen. A flow keeper can go bad if parts are broken, primarily the springs or the red tap.

Hi, Michael. The red tab is used to keep the valve open.

I bought a new flowkeeper a few months ago. I didn't have any problems with it for approx. five or six months. A few days ago I took it out because I had to pour some stabilizer through the skimmer which I had done before on several occasions. Ever since, as soon as I insert the flowkeeper the pump pressure goes down and the barracuda is not working. What could be wrong? The flowkeeper looks perfect.

I feel like there is a blockage in your plumbing causing a reduction in suction. I recommend Purge which is manufactured by Natural Chemistry and will clear your pipes allowing for a stronger flow.

why my barracuda vacuum stop w/c I clean my filter 2 mos ago, when I used the skimmer run smoothly you can tell by the flow of the water.
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Adam Y.

Good morning Rene, Do you have suction on the skimmer? If so it could be that the diaphram inside the cleaner is stretched or has a hole in it. We do sell the diaphram but I would check to see if this is your problem. If so, You can find that part by typing Barracuda parts in our search bar.

Where can I find a spring for the flow keeper valve. W60050
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/30/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Barb- Unfortunately, you would have to buy the entire flow keeper valve. They do not sell individual parts for those.

Flow keeper valve goes down on the cleaner in the pool? or up in the skimmer? Also, which end is up when installed? I bought a used Zodiac Beta with no instructions and don't want to wonder why it won't work if I install it wrong. Thank you Greg
