We have an old (year unknown) PB4-60 Polaris Booster Pump. We've replaced the seals a year ago, now it's leaking again. We're just going to bite the bullet and replace it. Reading reviews of the pump, a LOT of people just aren't happy with the LIFE of it .. Some say their new-one died withing anywhere from a year to 2 years. So my questions:
- Are there NEWER models being sold, or are they all the same? I note PB460-1 as the model on AMAZON.
- I note that SOME online sites have this as "ZODIAC", others specifically say "POLARIS". Why? OEM vs NOT?
- Are there much better/reliable Pumps other than Polaris on the market that I should consider? I assume that I need to maintain the same Specs as the PB4-60 ? (e.g., .75 HP, 115/230 V, 60 Hz)
Thanks so much for any advice..
