TURBINE SUCTION CLEANER
SAFETY WARNINGS
Owner’s Manual
DO NOT use to remove large debris in new pools.
Congratulations on the purchase of your Hayward automatic suction pool
cleaning system. Your cleaner is the smart, efficient way to clean your aboveground pool.
Hayward turbine cleaners are powered by your pool’s filter system and are
designed to work well with most systems. The performance of the cleaner in your
pool will be relative to its power source. Because the operation and performance
of the cleaner are system reliant, there is a remote possibility that a service call
may be necessary to complete the proper installation of your cleaner. This call
will be at the consumer’s expense.
Lastly, one or more of the accessories designed for the cleaner, including
additional hose sections, might be applicable to your installation. Consult
REMOVE cleaner and hose before adding ANY chemicals to your pool.
DO NOT swim with cleaner.
Store the cleaner in a shaded, safe area.
Hoses must be stored straight. DO NOT coil the hose.
KEEP AWAY from children and pets.
REMOVE cleaner when performing backwash.
REMEMBER safety first.

If the black disk is outside of the box on the “MAX” side and you
have connected your hose to the skimmer, reduce the vacuum/
water flow by using one of the following:
Connect the skimmer cone adapter to
tapered male end of the first hose section.
•
Suction valve(s) in the filter system (if equipped with)

Step 7
Reading Too Low?
An initial vacuum reading that is TOO low to meet the water flow
setting necessary to operate the cleaner is indicative of a system
problem, and not a problem with the cleaner.
The regulator valve cannot be used to INCREASE the initial
vacuum reading.

or contact your authorized Hayward Dealer for assistance.
Step 6
Submerge the cleaner into the water to remove all air.

IMPORTANT TIPS
Periodically check the water flow/vacuum to be sure that your
cleaner is operating as efficiently as possible.
When the cleaner is out of the pool, always disconnect the leader
hose from the cleaner.
Remember, too much vacuum is just as bad as too little.
Periodically check to make sure that the cleaner hose is securely
attached to its suction source (i.e. skimmer, wall connector, etc.).
Disconnect the cleaner hose from the skimmer/regulator valve
prior to “backwashing”, so to not restrict water flow.
DO NOT COIL HOSE
When storing your cleaner, the hose sections must be stored
straight. A coiled hose will create a memory in the hose that will
impede the cleaner’s ability to move properly.
Coiled hoses are not covered under the Hayward warranty.
Adjust the water return toward the center of the pool so
water circulation does not interfere with the cleaner’s pool
coverage capability.
Use only original Hayward spare parts and hoses to ensure
proper operation.

gauge and adjust as per
Step 5.
Blockage of the cleaner
throat
Clear blockage

Air trapped in the head
Remove all air from cleaner
head. Stop all air from
entering the pool through
the return lines. If cleaner
head and hose are covered
with fine bubbles, give the
hose a good tug. This will
release the air bubbles and
allow the cleaner head to
settle to the bottom of
the pool until the hose is
covered with bubbles again.
Cleaner head “floats”
The cleaner head is actually
being pulled or lifted off the
bottom of the pool by the,
or return line flow –either at
the surface or at the bottom
of the pool –or both.
