    Why cleaner delay?

    I have my main pool pump and my booster pump for the cleaner Letro Legend.

    Why is it set up for a five minute delay before it starts working?
    Thanks As Always!

    The booster shouldn't be run until the main pump is properly primed. Usually that happens almost instantly, but sometimes it takes longer. Setting it for a 5 minute delay makes extra sure that everything is good before the booster pump starts up.
