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.

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

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

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

Between 1 & 3 what's the strongest setting, I would think 3.

The 3 setting will be the stronger of the the two

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.

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.
