Just went through a pool remodel and I replaced all of the equipment. The company set up the pressure side pool cleaner suction source right after the cartridge filter. This makes sense except that now I am losing pressure to the pool and spa return jets because a large amount of water is being routed to the polaris line. I've seen setups where they put it after the heater on the pool return. Will I have the same issue with very high pressure on the polaris line with this setup? The problem with the pool return line is that the chlorinator is on that line. I mainly use liquid chlorine so it's not a big deal. Also, with my current setup the polaris keep running (very slow) after the booster pump stops because of the excess pressure.
I also have a dedicated suction line for the water feature. What if I tapped into that line and I would not even need to have the main pump running to use the polaris. Would this be a good setup? My equipment is slightly below the pool level so I would not have to worry about priming.
Thanks for the help.
