My Polaris 280 booster pump needs replacement and I have a WhisperFlo WFE-3, 3/4hp as main pump. My rates are $0.25 kwh. Do I upgrade my main pump to a 2-speed or variable speed pump with a pool cleaner that doesn't require booster pump(eg Polaris 360)? Or do I get a booster pump for the 280 as well as upgrade my main pump? My pool has a high debris load but my 280 does an excellent job, so I am afraid to switch. Is it difficult to run a 2- or variable- speed pump with the booster pump-requiring Polaris 280?
Appreciate your input.
