Zodiac G3 - all tile pool

We used a Zodiac/Barracuda pool sweep for many years in Florida with our marcite pools and they were great.

Now we have an all tile pool and while the sweep moves great, it only cleans the bottom of the pool. I have played with the suction, moved the weight around, removed the wheel deflector. I can't get it to climb ANY wall. The pool is kidney shaped.

I called Zodiac support and the woman was really helpful but now it goes to voice mail. II tried everything she suggested (except adding more weights to the hose) - BUT I forgot to mention to her that the pool is tile.

The other issue I will have to deal with is finding a way to avoid the 4 stools built into the pool - but first I need to get it to clean the walls.

Anyone here have any ideas ? Thanks !

The manufacturer claims it works on tile walls but I'd imagine if the grout lines are below the tile.... the seal may not be tight.

I have a self contained crawler and it sometimes has a hard time climbing the wall. I've not found that a problem as most of the debris falls to the bottom anyway. I brush the sides of my pool weekly to clean any algae or stuck debris. My pool is a Sylvan concrete.
