I have a Jandy Epump 2.2 HP pump on my 13x26 gunite pool which I'm running at 1400 rpm while consuming 141 watts for approximately 8 hours a day. I have several cycles where I've programmed the pump to ramp up to 2250 for several minutes in order to do a surface skim. I'm attempting to find a solution that won't add to my current energy footprint. I'm currently vacuuming and brushing my pool by hand but I'd like to pick up a pressure side cleaner to save me a little elbow grease.
I was looking at purchasing a Polaris 360 but I'm not sure if my current pump speed will provide the cleaner enough pressure to properly function.
Does anyone know if a Polaris 360 will function at 1400 rpm? I know that my current GPM might aid in answering this question but I don't have a completely accurate figure.
I also considered going with an aquabot jr but that little guy consumes about 230 Watts by itself which doesn't quite fit my criteria.
Does anyone know if any pressure side pool cleaners, new or old that will help me achieve my goal?
