Time to Tune-Up Your Suction Pool Cleaner. Part II - Suction Cleaner Repairs

In the last article, we figured out which parts of your suction pool cleaner need to be checked. Now we will talk about spare parts for repair.

Hoses are just the beginning, there are other specific parts in your pool cleaner that may need replacing before the season starts.


Suction Pool Cleaner Diaphragms

The diaphragm is the part of a Baracuda-type cleaner that pumps the suction. It's worn out over time and can get damaged by various factors. The bad news is that after the diaphragm gets damaged, it won’t have enough suction power to perform its intended function.

There are different types (cassette and standard) of diaphragms available so be sure to pick the right type for your cleaner!


Suction Cleaner Flow Valves

Leaf Catchers
