The Baracuda Zoom connects to a dedicated cleaner (suction) line or a pool skimmer. As water flows through the cleaner, dirt and debris are pulled directly into the pool filtration system.

Technical Details

  • To help prevent suction entrapment accidents, wall vacuum fittings should have a safety vac lock installed. Contact your builder or retail pool professional for details.
  • Clean the skimmer basket, pump basket and pool filter before installing the Zodiac cleaner and on a regular basis thereafter.
  • Always disconnect the cleaner before cleaning or backwashing the pool filter. After cleaning, let the filtration system run for at least five minutes before re-connecting the cleaner.
  • Remove the cleaner from the pool before chemical or shock treatments. Wait a minimum of four hours after super chlorination before re-installing the cleaner.
