Hey everyone, hoping this is a quick question.

I’m looking to upgrade my old single speed pump to a variable speed (intelliflo 011028). I have a Polaris 280 with a booster pump currently. I’m wondering how these two work together.

Do I just need to ensure that I set the pump to a decent rpm at the time the polaris kicks on each day? The Polaris is on an timer and runs about 3 hours a day
-or-
Can a booster pump operate on low rpms from the pump?

Thanks in advance

Depends how low RPMs you plan on running.

I run my IntelliFlo at 1700 RPMs which my SWG and heater need. My Polaris 380 with a booster pump cleans fine with that flow.
