1. THE PARTS OF YOUR POOLGOBBLER PRO
Take all parts from the box and arrange them in front of you as
shown on the picture, remove the orange sleeve (a2) from the
connector (a).
2. INSTALLATION OF YOUR POOLGOBBLER PRO.
If your pool is equipped with inlet jets (this usually is the case) then
proceed to paragraph 2A. CONNECTING TO AN INLET JET. If the
water inlet of your pool is a smooth pipe (for example a Desjoyaux
pool) then proceed to paragraph 2B. CONNECTING TO A SMOOTH
PIPE.
2A. CONNECTING TO AN INLET JET
First you have to determine to which inlet you wish to connect your
PoolGobbler Pro.
Select the inlet jet such that PoolGobbler Pro can create its
circular flow without any perturbation.
The picture shows a quite standard pool with three inlets and two
skimmers. The PoolGobbler should never be connected to inlet jet C
because either A or B would disturb the circular flow. PoolGobbler
has to be connected to either A or B. We choose to connect our
PoolGobbler Pro to inlet jet A . To avoid inlet jets B and C to
perturbate the circular flow, the circular flow should go straight
from inlet jet A to inlet jets C and B, counter clockwise. To achieve
this we install PoolGobbler Pro with its filter bag pointing to inlet B.

parts a2 en g will only be needed in special cases.
TO ASSEMBLE:
Slide hose c onto elbow b and push firmly until it clicks. Do the same
for the hose and the floating head d.
Slide holder e with the filter bag, from the inside out, leading the
filter bag to the outside (on the picture from left to right). Push the
holder firmly into the skimmer head.
Parts a and f will be used later.
INSTALLATION:
Switch off the pump.
Unscrew the cover of the inlet you have selected and remove the
directional ball (it will no longer be needed).
Insert the toothed end of the Universal connector into the opening
of the cover until the red rim touches the cover. In case the opening
is too small to insert the Universal connector replace it by part G and
try again. If this also fails proceed to paragraph 2B. CONNECTING TO
A SMOOTH PIPE.
Fasten the universal connector by turning the white wheel on the
connector: the teeth will spread thus locking the connector to the
cover.
Put the cover with the universal connector back on the inlet jet and
screw it onto it.
Slide the PoolGobbler with its elbow B over the end of the Universal
Connector (you may have to push quite firmly) and secure with clip F
(see picture).

water level. If this is not the case its level can be adjusted by slightly
turning elbow b at the side of the connector a.
Switch on the pump and continue with 3 – OPTIMIZING YOUR
POOLGOBBLER PRO
2B. CONNECTING TO A SMOOTH PIPE.
Make sure that the pump still is switched off. Slide flexible sleeve A2
back onto the Universal Connector (picture).
If the inlet is a smooth pipe, we recommend to sand the inside to
ensure a better grip.
Insert the toothed end with the sleeve into the opening of the inlet
until the red rim touches the pool side. Fasten it by turning the
white wheel while holding the far end of the connector.
Slide the PoolGobbler Pro with its elbow B over the end of the
Universal Connector (you may have to push quite firmly) and secure
with clip F.
NOTE: It might occur that the connector doesn’t go in completely.
This can be solved by sliding a flange over the orange sleeve
(available at any DIY-plumbing dept, external diameter 70mm,
internal diameter 40mm, 6 mm thick).
3. OPTIMIZING YOUR POOLGOBBLER PRO.
Now your PoolGobbler Pro can be adjusted for optimal
performance. Please be aware that it might take several tries to
have it work at its best. Make sure that the pump is switched on.
a) POSITIONING YOUR POOLGOBBLER PRO.
Make sure that the floating head d is in a horizontal position on the
water surface.
PoolGobbler Pro will automatically position itself alongside the wall,
so it will not be in the way. If it does not position itself completely
alongside, you can achieve this by slightly turning the end of the
hose at the elbow (b) side.
b) POSITIONING OF THE NOZZLE OF THE FLOATING HEAD.
The position of the nozzle of the floating head greatly determines
the efficacy of the PoolGobbler. It should be ¾ under / ¼ above the
c) ADJUSTING THE PRESSURE.
The pressure of the water streaming into the pool is important: if
the water flows too slowly, the captured debris might flow back into
the pool, if the water flows too fast, the debris might bounce back
into the pool.
If the water flows too slowly, its speed can be increased by partly
closing the other inlet jets. You can do this by turning the directional
ball in these jets such that the opening of the directional ball is
partly blocked by the cover.
If the water flows too fast you can reduce the speed by turning the
pressure adjustment ring on elbow b such that the opening pointing
downwards is open (the opening on top should always be closed!).
4. MAINTENANCE OF YOUR POOLGOBBLER PRO
Your PoolGobbler Pro requires very little maintenance. Its
installation is once off, which means that it does not need to be
removed during the season. If you cover your pool during the night
or a longer absence the cover can be put over your PoolGobbler.
a) EMPTYING THE FILTER BAG.
The filter bag should be emptied before it is half full.
Switch off the pump and take holder e with the filter bag from the
PoolGobbler.
Empty the filter bag, when it is damaged it should be replaced, if it is
just dirty it can be washed.
Put the filter bag back onto the holder and slide it back into the
floating head.
Switch on the pump.
b) HIBERNATING YOUR POOLGOBBLER PRO.
When you prepare your pool for the winter season do as follows:
If the PoolGobbler Pro is connected to a cover remove the
cover from the inlet jet together with the PoolGobbler still attached
to it. Remove the filter bag, clean the PoolGobbler with lukewarm
soapy water and store it .
If the PoolGobbler Pro is connected to a smooth pipe or
connected directly into the opening of the inlet jet, you can remove
it by turning the big white wheel.
Remove the filter bag, clean the PoolGobbler with lukewarm soapy
water and store it .
