Maintaining a pool suction cleaner is easy if you have the right spare parts. They’re designed to swap out easily with minimal fuss so you can keep your suction cleaner in top shape at all times. Here at Mr Pool Man we recognize that your pool suction cleaners are an essential part of having crystal clear pool waters which is why we have the widest range of pool spare parts available online and ready to ship to get your cleaners up and running in no time. Here are some of the most common suction cleaner spare parts that need replacing:
- Skirts - Your pool cleaner’s skirts ensure that it gets a good grip and that a good vacuum is maintained. A worn out skirt is usually the cause for your cleaner losing suction if everything else (skimmer boxes, filter, hoses) is in working condition.
- Pool Cleaner Hoses - Suction cleaner hoses connect your cleaner to your filtration system. A leaky or damaged pool cleaner hose can cause inadequate pressure and may cause your cleaner to malfunction.
- Flow Regulator Valves - These valves regulate the flow of water from your cleaner to your pool, ensuring that the pressure isn’t too high or too low for optimal cleaning performance.
- Diaphragms - Think of this as your pool cleaner’s heart valve, they function in exactly the same way, regulating water at the cleaner head so that suction is maintained at all times. They’re one of the hardest working parts of your pool cleaner so don’t forget to check them if you’re having trouble with getting proper suction or cleaner operation.

Tip: As long as they’re made with top quality materials, 3rd party diaphragm replacements are as good (or even better than, in some cases) as the branded diaphragms. Mr Pool Man has a range of Water TechniX diaphragm replacements for all the major suction cleaner brands so be sure to check them out if you’re looking for a diaphragm for your pool cleaner.
