    Alternate connection for my new Polaris 280

    I just got my new Polaris 280 and it comes with a 1 1/2" quick connect. My problem is that my Booster Pump return line is only either 1/2" or 3/4" female. I can't seem to get any info about how to connect from anyone, including the guys at the pool stores. Is there an adapter? Or what should I do?

    Looks like you need something like this. This one is a Coupling, 1-1/2 NPTF x 3/4" NPTM. You can find them at most on line stores that sell Polaris parts. Maybe a local plumbing supply house. I could not find the fitting on line at Home Depot or Lowes for you. Good luck with your search!
