    Do you increase your VS pump speed when running non-booster clearner like Polaris 360

    I don't have a Polaris 360 or a VS pump yet. I am just doing some research to see the feasibility of running a non-booster cleaner in a VS system.

    I have a dedicated cleaner return line and also have a Jandy valve that can force water to the cleaner line from other normal return jets. Do you change any valve settings or VS pump speed when running your non-booster cleaner?

    Thanks,


    Scott

    If you need more flow for the cleaner than what you get at a low RPM, then yes you will certainly need to increase the pump speed. This is greatly dependant on the cleaner and how all your plumbing and equipment was installed.
