Additional Safety Tips from Our Pool Experts

Do not turn the Power Supply on, unless the pool cleaner is in the water.

Do not operate your machine while people swim in the pool.

The Power Supply must be placed at least 12 feet / 4 meters from the pool’s edge at all times! See diagram below.

To prevent possible electric shock hazard this unit must be connected to an RCD (Residual Current Device – more commonly known as a GFCI) with a related residual operating current not exceeding 30mA.

Before performing any troubleshooting maintenance procedures, your Cleaner should be disconnected from the Power Supply (transformer) and the Power Supply should be unplugged from the electrical outlet to prevent the possibility of personal injury or damage to your Cleaner!

    I am interested in the Pentair creepy krauly lil shark auto cleaner. We have a 27ft above ground pool with steps inside of pool. My question is will this be strong enough to clean the pool and if it runs into the side of the steps will it bounce off or get stuck until someone moves it manually ?also will it clean the walls also

      Hi Cheryl,

      The Lil Shark is a pool bottom cleaner and will not clean the walls of your pool. When it runs into you pool steps it will usually bounce off. If there are spaces between the steps and the pool wall that the Lil Shark can fit, it may get stuck and you would need to adjust the position of your pool steps to prevent that from happening.

    I have an s2 – 40 pool cleaner it works momentarily and then after a short period both lights are flashing on the large and small pool cleaner lights

      Hi Michael,

      Blinking power supply lights are usually caused by the filter bag being stuck in the screen, or the propellers are stuck (usually with leaves, twigs, or other debris).
