Pentair Kreepy Krauly Lil Shark Vacuum Regulator (GW9016)
The vacuum regulator is a replacement part that was made by Pentair. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
The valve automatically balances the water flow between the skimmer and the cleaner. It adjusts to changes in the amount of water flow to provide the cleaner with the power necessary to ensure proper cleaning performance.
This part is off white and properly labeled as to which side must be put down into the skimmer, and what side needs to connect to the hose making the part easy to identify and install. Also, this valve was designed for aboveground pools but can be used for the Great White model GW9500 which is an in-ground suction cleaner.
