I found a reasonably priced Polaris 360 for sale, and I'm looking to replace my vacuum cleaner.
I have a 1HP pump with 3 return lines. The filter gage runs around 12 psi.
From what I understand, 1 of the returns will get a quick connect to install the cleaner. The other 2 returns will likely need pressure regulators or plugs installed.
I expect to clean the pool once or twice a week. Are the pressure regulators or plugs necessary to get the correct pressure, intended to be left in when the cleaner is not working? Will this significantly reduce the water circulation? or skimmer effectiveness?
