I currently have a Pentair Boost-Rite Pump for my Polaris cleaner. Pentair has refused to warranty it because I installed it myself. That pump is a 1 HP and I see this is a 3/4 HP. Will this run my Polaris 280?
Hi Brad, Yes this would power your Polaris 280. However, I would suggest the Polaris PB460 Booster Pump as it is specifically designed to power the Polaris 280 cleaner.

We have a slide on our pool at the club. HCP100 does not have enough lift to correctly feed the slide. I want to cut in a booster pump. What is the GPM of this booster pump? I am sure this is more than enough for our slide. Is this 2-3 on shipping? I need it PDQ. Thanks, John
For normal applications this pump will put out about 20 - 30 GPM's and delivery is 2-4 business days.
does this pump replace the Hayward Model 5060? Do I need an adapter kit?
You will not need an adapter kit, it is a direct replacement for the 5050.
Do the hoses and connections come with the pump?
Hi, Zachary. The hoses and hose connections are not included with the pump, you will have to purchase it separately. The p/n is 6060HKIT.
I have the Hayward 5060 booster pump which has failed. Is the 6060 a direct replacement? Does it support the same form and fit of the 5060?
Hi, The 6060 model is a direct replacement to the 5050.
Whats the amps on this pump?
Hi, This pump amps rating is 13.3/6.9-6.8 depending on the operating voltage 115/208-230.
The comments about how quiet and energy saving the 6060 pump motor is, has me wanting to replace my PB4 with the 6060. I see that it can be done, but are there any plumbing/wiring differences I need to know about?
Hi, JJ. The 6060 Booster Pump can be plumbed and wired the same way as the PB4 pump.
I need to replace my Hayward 6060 pump, but I do not want to convert to using hoses. Does your replacement pump have exterior threads for me to screw to my existing threaded fittings that will connect my PVC "hard pipe"?
Good morning Paul, This pump is setup with 1.5" unions. You would have to reduce them to 3/4" pipe if you wanted to hard plumb in.
I have a 3/4 booster pump to operate my Polaris cleaner. The motor windings have shorted so I need to replace. I have a StaRite 1.5 HP pump/motor ,,same speed and voltage. Pool guy says the Polaris will "jump out of the pool". I say if I adjust flow, on the valve ,it should behave the same. Also the 1.5 HP has bigger,, probably 1.5 " inlet and outlet. Is it ok to use the 3/4" hose or shod I use hose to match the bigger in/out. Jim Burk
Jim, I would not recommend trying to use a pool pump as a booster pump. The pool pump is not designed for use with 3/4" plumbing.
As a follow up from my previous question. Does the pump come with the base? If not, will my base from the 5060 fit the 6060? is the 5060 still available? Thanks
The base is included with the new pump.
The volute on my 5060 has threads on the inside of the intake and outtake, Does the 6060 have the same? The piping was screwed into the intake and outtake and I want to make installing the new pump quick and easy and do not have alot of plumbing skills.
Hi Richie, The 6060 does not have threads on the inside, it comes with the unions for easy removal and installation.
What is the amperage rating for this motor (120V). Are motors available in 1/2 HP rating ? 3/4 not necessary, flow must be reduced w/orfice plate or adjustable pressure at poolside.
Hi, At 115 volts this pump draws 13.3 amps. There is not a 1/2 HP motor you will have to reduce water flow with a valve or pool side depending on the cleaner that you have.
Does the pump come with the caskets between pvc pipe and pump?
Hi Paul, The pump will include the union along with the union gasket.
Can I replace hayward 5060 with another brand, like Polaris? Do I have to worry about connections, hoses, etc. how to compare the two for best fit, volts?
Hi Sukie, The manufacture recommends that you use their pump with their cleaners. However some folks have mix match cleaner and pumps. The connections is not a huge factor.
Does this Model 6060 pump assembly include the impeller? It seems so but I don't want to assume. thank you
Hello Don, yes the 3/4 HP Booster Pump is a complete pump, including the impeller.
Is this compatible to replace the 5060 booster pump?
Yes the 6060 model will replace the 5060.
Can this unit replace a PB4-60 Booster pump? Thanks JG
John, Yes the Hayward booster pump can replace a PB460 booster pump, however we do still carry the PB460 Booster Pump if you wanted to stay with the exact same model.
I need to know the pump curve to see if I can use this pump to be used to pump water to my house.
This pump does not have a curve chart because it used to operate a pressure side pool cleaner.
I have the Hayward 5060. Looks like the 6060 is the current replacement. The 5060 is 230v....is the 6060 the same? What alterations do I need to do for a 6060?
Hello Tim - The 6060 is also 230v. No major alterations are required. You can plumb the 6060 in with 1.5" pvc or retrofit it to accept 3/4" hose.
I purchased a Hayward 6060 booster pump to replace a Hayward 5060 booster pump but the inlet and outlet are different. What's the recommended way to plumb the new pump?
The newer style Hayward booster pump comes with 1.5" slip unions and 3/4" hose barbed fittings. You can either plumb it in using 1.5" pvc or you can retrofit it using the 3/4" barbed fitting and flexible hose.
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.
What does the booster pump do?
The booster pump is used to power your pool cleaner. It is a designated pump just for this purpose. This takes away any wear and tear on your main pool pump. The Viper and the Phantom both require the Hayward booster pump to function properly.
(5 out of 5 stars) 6060 Booster Pump
Reviewed By: Rick A. from Cary, NC ()
Pros: Quiet, Powerful, reasonably priced
Booster pump went out. Local store wanted $310 for a new pump, $510 installed. My buddy has replaced these before and said it was "a snap". So I ordered the pump for ~$220 and had it in 2 days! Within an hour, my buddy had it installed! Awesome deal - great pump - VERY quiet compared to the 6050 we replaced.
