Booster pumps are designed to provide a designed flow rate to automatic pressure side pool cleaners requiring a booster pump. Booster pumps are not self-priming, so they should only be in operation when the main circulation pump is in use. Booster pumps on average last 4-7 years.
These pumps use a single-speed, single-phase motor that uses man-made magnets. This type of magnet loses its polarity over time. This loss in polarity will adjust the flow rate of the pump. This loss in flow rate will cause the cleaner in the pool to either intermittently work or run very slow. So it’s important to either replace or repair the pump when needed.
