Troubleshooting Your Swimming Pool Sweep – Greater Sacramento Area

Published: May 29, 2012

Hey everybody! Sorry for the hiatus, but Leisure Time has been incredibly busy (which is good) lately with the summer season kickin’ off! Recently, we have had a lot of calls regarding swimming pool sweep problems.

Two of the most common problems people voice are:

1) “My pool sweep is not moving.”

-or-

2) “My pool sweep only stays in one end of the pool.”

If you are having these problems, read the following. It may save you time and money!
-Check to ensure that the main drain and all suction lines are closed, except for the suction line to which Kreepy Krauly is attached.
-Check for debris in the filter or pump basket.
-Check for debris in pool sweep’s flapper/wheels/propeller. Debris may prevent flapper movement or restrict flow.
-Pool pump and filter system may be too small (incapable of providing 14 gallons per minute water flow).

If you cannot figure out why your sweep isn’t working properly, just give us a call at 916-638-4100.

See you all back here on Thursday!
