First off, I've been lurking on this forum for awhile and have learned a lot!
I recently purchased a used polaris 380 and a booster pump. My pool does not have a dedicated cleaner return. Instead, it has a single pipe leading from the outlet of the filter to the pool that feeds two returns. There must be a "T" close to the pool to enable the single pipe to feed both returns. I've excavated the pipe from the filter and almost made it to the edge of the concrete decking around the pool (have another 8 feet or so to go). Still no sign of the "T".
If I can get to the "T", I'd like to cut one of the pipes leading from the "t" to one of the returns. I'd then run a pipe from this return back to my pad and hook that to my booster pump. The return would then become my cleaner return.
Is there any reason this isn't doable or otherwise not a good idea? I've already thought about feeding the cleaner with a hose draped over the edge of the concrete decking (i.e., an over-the-deck setup), but really don't want to do this for aesthetic reasons.
