It is good also for inground play pool ? ( 12000 gallons) Can be plug in to existing hayward hose ?

Hi Juan, No the AquaRay would not be a good choice for an inground pool. For your style of pool we would suggest the Hayward Blu Inground Pool Cleaner.

I can't get the sweeper to move I've tried everything. The regulator- flow will not open

A  Answered on 6/11/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi JoAnn, If the Regulator Flow-DCX180 will not open allowing water to flow through then you will need to replace it, or the Hammer & Cup Assy-DCX120 may be worn allowing the cleaner not to function properly.

Would this be a good sweeper for an Intex above ground pool?

A  Answered on 8/5/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Christy, This cleaner can not be used with Intex pools. We recommend that you use a battery powered cleaner like the Pool Blaster Max.

Why won't the head stay flat on bottom of pool It lifts up& doesn't clean

A  Answered on 9/12/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

I would start with the flow rate and changing the hose lengths around so that your cleaner isn't continually doing to same thing.

my aqua ray is about 3 years old. the seal near where the hose connects to the aqua ray is not working and air is released so the machine will not work. I was not able to use this year and discovered why just a few weeks ago. is there a part that I can order to correct this problem?

Are you referring to the regulator flow valve? If so, the part number for that is 3251-011. Let me know if you need further help.
