    Pb4-60

    I just replaced my booster pump, a PB4-60. Is there any way to check the actual pressure that is produced? My Polaris does not seem to be moving as quickly as it used to. I removed the Polaris from the end of the hose and noted that the water flow seemed to imitate the same flow as coming out a normal hose attache to a spigot. Do you think the booster pump is performing correctly ? Before I take apart the Polaris 280, I would like to eliminate the pump as the problem.
    Thanks

    Insure that the screen at the wall fitting is clean.
    If so, remove the wall fitting. If the pump is operating, the pressure at the wall should be substantially greater with the pump on than with it off.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!

    Sorry I didn't get back sooner, I was finally able to remove the fitting from the wall and cleaned out all the equipment. That did the trick.
    Thanks
