Pentair Kreepy Krauly Dive Float (370497Z)
Pentair Kreepy Krauly Dive Float (370497Z) this replacement part is made by Pentair and is made from the same high-grade plastic material as the original Factory part.
This Float is designed to sit above the Drive tubes and attaches itself to the Main Body Motor Housing. The purpose of this float is to keep the top end of the cleaner upright as opposed to being on its side, which would ultimately keep the cleaner from sucking dirt and debris off your pools surface.
When trying to troubleshoot an issue with your Kreepy Krauly suction cleaner and the issue is the cleaner not being able to stand up right then this means the Float is more than likely not set in the correct position needed to keep the cleaner upright or it may be compromised meaning there is a leak. Cool thing about this Float and what makes it unique as far as its design, is that it can be easily re positioned to get the cleaner at its optimum position which is 45 degrees. This also help with the cleaner’s ability to climb the pool wall, however if out of position this will cause the cleaner to climb to far up so its vital that it is adjusted accordingly.
