    Heat pump & Robotic cleaner- Return question

    I am installing a heat pump into my pool. A few questions in regards to the plumbing as at the same time I am moving to an electric cleaner.

    1. Should I leave the plumbing in place for the Polaris Boost Pump, Tees, and the flex hose? ( the though is if the robot goes bad I could have a plan b to run my Polaris) Or should I remove it for efficiency of the plumbing if any?

    2. Depending on the result of #1 above what should I do with the Quick connect in the pool wall for the Polaris? Leave it shooting water straight out, or somehow convert it to a return? I have two returns in the steps and two already in the pool.

    What are your thoughts?
    I am leaning towards leaving the plumbing but not sure if the quick connect shooting water straight out is disrupting my circular return motion.

    Thanks as always!!!!!

    I'd leave it in place. You can always bypass the pump and it magically becomes a return!
