Why might a pool barracuda not move?

You have to make sure your filter is clean otherwise you will receive low to no pressure for your barracuda/manta to move. There is a small ball inside belly of the barracuda that sometimes breaks apart and sometimes gets stuck. Replace the ball or break it free This should help. If its not the ball then I would suggest you replace the flapper but most times it is simply the ball mechanism inside that breaks. If the unit gets stuck in corners try moving the hose weight a litle to chang its cere of gravity. also have a look at diaphragm some times leaves or weed pods get stuck in them.RB
