Pentair Kreepy Krauly and Kruiser Hose Weight (370494Z)
Pentair Kreepy Krauly and Kruiser Hose Weight (370494Z) this is a replacement part made by Pentair for the Kreepy Krauly and Kruiser suction side pool cleaners and is made from the same high-grade plastic material as the original Factory part.
This part was designed to be exactly what it is named, a weight. The Kreepy Krauly is light unlike other suction cleaners Pentair produces like the Warrior or the Rebel, so this weight helps by keeping the cleaner and Hose on the bottom of the surface as opposed to floating up to the top of the water thus making the cleaner ineffective.
This Hose Weight is Blue and should be positioned on the first section of Hose. You want the first weight to be about 4” to 12” from the head of the cleaner to ensure the cleaner floats properly, the second weight should be installed about 6 Ft’ from the first weight near the head. This ensures both the cleaner and Hose Weight are performing their tasks.
