    Would a Polaris Booster pump work as waterfall pump

    With our pool renovation I am probably going Robot sweep and we are getting a waterfall. For a Sheer Descent waterfall ~24" wide, would that pump suffice or is that too broad of a question? Waterfall is probably 30' from pump station. Understanding plumbing will be required.

    Probably not. IMO.
    Those booster pumps are designed for high pressure and low flow. What you want is the opposite (low pressure, high volume).
