WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

The PB4-60Q is the quieter version of this product

The PB4-60 is much more noisier than other booster pumps in the market

The voltages of the PB4-60 booster pump is about 220v — any voltages low may cause it to run perfectly for a few minutes then overheat (as what a buyer mentioned)

There is a problem with the warranty where it won’t be applied if the unit wasn’t installed by a certified technician

This product still works perfectly for most reviews which garnered about 70% of their reviews giving 5 stars

The pump can last for long periods per day

Vs THE PENTAIR 340036 

The Pentair is smaller and has a “weaker” motor 1/2-HP motor, BUT delivers a good pressure and volume

It is also a dual-voltage pumps that draws 10.8amp on 115V and 5.4 amp on 230v

This motor was advertised as a “quiet” motor but is actually noisier than the PB4-60

In terms of performance most reviews would consider the Pentair 340036

CONS OF THE ZODIAC PB4 POLARIS BOOSTER PUMP

This product may last for long periods of hours per day (about 8 hours according to most customers who reviewed this product) but also a large percentage of the amazon reviews pointed out that the product suddenly suffers technical problems afterwards.

A percent of the reviews mainly pointed out the problems with the shipping (ex. Lacked care when shipping).

ENDING (Final Thoughts)

Without a doubt, the Zodiac PB4-60 Polaris Booster Pump is of excellent quality and provides an amazing pump performance. If you noticed most of the reviews are being pointed out by customers are not in the performance of the pump but rather the noise or the shipping conditions. Therefore, making this product an excellent one to purchase.

In amazon this pump being sold for about $250 depending on the pack you will buying. It ranges from that price to about $2319.00 depending on the pack you will be choosing.

Being compared to a direct competitor, this product stood out because of its powerful motor, though some reviews would choose the Pentair only because it’s cheaper.
