I put an Intelliflo VF in to replace my old centurian. I have a polaris 280 that runs off of a booster pump.
The polaris booster is still hooked up to the intermatic timer.
I like to run the Intelliflo to turn over my pool once every cycle. Over the winter, I had the pool covered and the booster off. I ran the pump at a continuous low flo and enjoyed the low electric bill.
However, with the polaris back in and the booster running 3-4 hours a day for the cleaner, I am not sure if running it low is safe for the pumps.
Currently I am cycling my pool once over 18 hours and running Feature 3 for 3-4 hours at 50gpm to overlap the time interval that the booster is on .
Is the Feature necessary?
Is there a minimum flow rate that the Intelliflo should run at while the booster is running?
I'm just trying to optimize my system.
Thanks for any advice.
