We've owned a Kreepy Krawly for about 7 years. They are absolutely
wonderful. We used to have to vacuum the bottom of the pool every
time we'd use it. Now we just leave the KK in the pool until we're
ready to use the pool. Clean the solar blanket, clean any topside
debris and away we go!
We haven't needed to do any maintenance on it until this year.
Currently, it doesn't seem to have any suction power. The big rubber
mat that sits on the bottom of the pool, seems to be lacking the
ability to actually "stick" to the bottom. It appears as if it has
stretched and that the "hole" in its middle is too big, not allowing a
true suction to take place???
Thats my theory anyway :) Off to the pool supply shop for their take!
