Vacuum Keeps Getting Stuck on the Main Drain

Recommended Posts

My automatic pool vacuum gets stuck on the main drain constantly. It only works under supervision. I've tried the clip thing and that didn't work. What can I do?

Does your cleaner have a backup valve? That should be taking care of a sticking problem.  If your unit is getting stuck from the suction of the main drain, You probably dont have a VGB drain cover installed, and should do so for safety reasons.

This is true. I have a flat main drain cover. I've looked into this before, but I don't really know how to pick the right retrofit cover for my setup. I suppose I could just bring in the cover to my local pool store.
