    Polaris 280 Not operating properly

    My Polaris 280 has been riding on only two wheels sometimes one. sometimes on it's side. Just replaced booster pump with Polaris 3/4hp pump. completely flushed pool system. have yet to check wheel RPM. The original disk is in place for pressure. Is it possible that the disk is worn?
    I have an inground 15k gal, I run a Jandy DE filtration system with a Polaris 280 Running on a 3/4H Polaris Booster. I live in Central California

    Welcome to TFP!

    Is the booster pump the same HP as the old one? Likely need to adjust the pressure/flow even if it's the same HP as the flow might be different.
