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.
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.
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.
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 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 had purchased a house warranty that included my pool and equipment. 2 years ago the pump died so the warranty people sent out a guy and he replaced the motor on the pump. It looked odd and I now realize it was a rebuilt old pump. It took some work to get the rotted pump off but the new replacement was easy. INYOPOOLS, best price and very informative. They are now my GO-TO.

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.
