    Polaris 280 conversion

    Hi all,

    Looking to eliminate the booster pump. Wanting to replumb this system to run off the filter pump. Any ideas?

    I wouldn't do it. You could plumb your circulation pump to feed the pool cleaner return but most of the pool cleaner return lines are 1" and restricting the pressure side of your circulation pump down that far will be very hard on it and wear it out prematurely. You'll negate the savings of not running the booster pump pretty quickly.

    booster pump models of cleaners are high pressure but lower flow. Non booster models like the 360 are lower pressure and higher flow (gpm)
