Hello, we just purchased a new robotic pool cleaner to replace a very old polaris pressure cleaner.
I was told we could just leave the return inlet that connected to the in-pool cleaner running, absent the old cleaner attached. But is this the most efficient use of energy given one benefit of the robotic system is lower energy use?
What are our options for the old booster pump? Could we just leave it in place, and let it pump water through the old inlet, or do we need to remove the booster and cap the return inlet?
(We are new pool owners, so forgive me on the lack of terminology)
