Just bought a house with a pool. Got everything under control except for the “Kreepy Krauly” in the pool. I can get it to work, however, 1.) It sometimes won’t stay suctioned flat on the pool surface. The back end will start to lift up. Is that normal? 2.) It will usually work for 5-10 minutes and then just stop dead. I make sure the filter is completely clean. Why would it just stop? 3.) It seems like it is very repetitive. It sometimes just goes over the same area it already cleaned. Isn’t it suppose to be “random” and clean the pool in its entirety? I don’t want to have to fork out for some pool guy to come out and really want to try and do this pool thing on my own. Any help would be appreciated!!
