Pierre, You may need to replace the Filter Cartridge (70101) and or the Filter Door if the debris is bypass the unit and getting back into the pool. The filters are probably old that there no longer able to capture the debris so is letting it back into the pool.

Can the Hayward SharkVac be used in a vinyl liner pool?

A  Answered on 2/2/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

Leslies, this information is taken straight from the Hayward Site for the Sharkvac : In-ground residential pools up to 20' x 40'All surfaces - vinyl, concrete, fiberglass, tile pools SharkVac cleans pool floor only. SharkVac XL cleans pool floor coves, walls and waterline.

Does the SharkVac clean the walls and stairs of the pool? Also, does it remove the algae and bacteria? Thank you.

A  Answered on 6/14/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

This cleaner does not clean the walls or stairs. This cleaner is a floor specific cleaner. It will vacuum algae from the walls of the pool. Keep in mind that algae is a plant that is growing in your pool and needs to be chemically treated. This cleaner will not remove bacteria. With proper sanitisation levels in your pool, bacteria will be eliminated.
