Hello Skimdevil owners,
We hope you are having a good time around your pool and Skimdevil is helping you enjoy it even more by doing its job.
In order to ensure everything will continue working without any issues, we would like you to take the following precautionary step. Every unit is equipped with a pressure relief membrane that equalizes pressure when the temperature rises or falls. We just learned that some of the membranes were not supplied as specified and will not allow enough air to flow through to equalize the pressure inside the unit.
Here are the steps we recommend you take:
1. Turn the Skimdevil off, take it out of the pool (empty the basket if needed), and flip it over preferrably on a soft surface to not damage the solar panels.
2. Find the location of the pressure relief membrane; please see the attached picture for the exact location. (You should see 7 small holes towards the front of the unit, opposed the charging port)
3. Take a needle or a sharp pin and insert it into each of the 7 holes as seen in the picture provided
You can now continue normal operation and the air should be able to move in and out without putting pressure and excessive force on the unit's seal.
Thank you very much for your attention to this matter and we do apologize for any inconvenience. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need additional assistance with this process.
The Skimdevil Team
