What is a booster pump, and where does it attach to?
This cleaner is designated as a pressure side cleaner which means:Pressure Pool Cleaners most pressure cleaners require a booster pump which is typically a ¾ horse power pump that is dedicated for use with the cleaner alone. The booster pump allows you to operate the pressure cleaner without taking any suction away from your main pool pump. The addition of the booster pump does mean pressure cleaners require a more involved installation than either suction or robotic cleaners. The booster pump is installed in tandem with your pool pump.
(5 out of 5 stars) Awesome Pool Cleaner

Pros: Leaves pool spotless
Cons: A little bulky when removing from pool
This cleaner does a very good job...way better then the polaris I replaced it with. I was hesitant to spend the extra bucks, because it is a little pricey, but it is worth every penny. It cleans every inch of the pool and stairs, and it's even fun to watch. It's a larger machine and when taking it out of the water, if you don't position it just right, it's easy to spill some of the contents (debris) out of the bag back into the pool, but that's small potatoes. With practice I'm sure I'll improve my technique.

Pros: Can set to clean top and bottom or both. Options on how often "spinout" occurrs
Cons: Debri bag only lasted about 2 years and is over priced
This is my second one. The first one lasted 6 years. It runs an average of 3 hours a day 365 days a year with minimal maintenance. This is the only one I have ever owned so I'm not sure how it compares to others but I've been happy with the job it does. So happy.....I bought another one!

Pros: Skims surface
Cons: Tangles and tail sprays outside of pool
This is a replacement for the first Phantom. I love the fact that it skims the surface as well as cleaning the bottom and sides. However, the line gets tangled much more often than I like. Also, the tail breaks the surface of the water often and if you're close look out, you'll get wet!
