We have the Polaris 280 cleaner with booster pump. We've lived in the house 10 years now and it was already installed when we moved in.
I've replaced various parts on the cleaner and hose to keep it working...
Considered completely replacing it by next season since the plastic housing is cracking on it and the cost of a rebuild kit isn't that much different than a brand new one.
This summer, I noticed the booster pump is dripping water underneath the propeller housing and at the point where the propeller mounts to the motor.
With the age of the pump and cleaner, would it be worth it to open the pump and replace seals, etc. and replace the cleaner itself in another season or so or get a better deal buying both the cleaner and pump combo?
