A Kreepy Krauly is an automatic pool cleaner for in-ground swimming pools. Cleaning the pool can be turned from a time-consuming chore into a simple automated process using a Kreepy Krauly; the automatic pool cleaner runs when your pool pump runs, using the suction power of the water filtration system to clean dirt and debris from the bottom and walls of the pool. So you can put a Kreepy Krauly in the pool and leave it alone to do its job, keeping the pool sparkling and clean for you and your family.

Step 2

Place the Kreepy Krauly into the shallow end of the pool and allow it to sink to the bottom. Be sure to push the automatic pool cleaner end below the water first or it will just float on the surface.


Step 3

Fill the Kreepy Krauly hose with water from the garden hose.

Step 4

Connect the water-filled hose to the pool inlet hole, or to the skimmer hole if you do not have a dedicated inlet.

Step 5

Turn on the water filtration pump.


Step 6

Push the Kreepy Krauly to the center or deep end of the pool with the pool pole. It should begin working automatically. You will know it's working properly by the distinct "ticking clock" sound the Kreepy Krauly makes in the water.
