There used to be a Polaris (I think) in my inground pool. The booster pump was dead and has been removed and the Polaris was never seen by me. I've capped it off but I am thinking of a pool cleaner now. To buy a new booster and cleaner is a bit out of my price range, but I was going to look at getting a kreepy krawley suction type cleaner. I'd love to use the port as a dedicated suction port.
Can I just pipe it into the other intakes? Does it make sense to do this?
Currently there is a diverter valve (I think) that has two intakes (one is the drain, the other is the combined skimmers (2 of them must tee together underground)). If I add this third suction port, should I remove the divertor and just use three ball valves before combining them? Would that work and is that the way to do it?
I can post pics or draw a picture if needed.
