Pump seems to running but the water pressure going to polaris does not change when you turn Pump on or off. Polaris is not performing as usual. Is there a way to check if pump is actually pumping the water?

Disconnect the hose from the wall and with your hand fell how much pressure you have. It's possible you have an air lock. With the hose off the top fitting of the booster pump and the hose pointing away from you and electrical turn pump on and see what kind of pressure. This will also clear the air.

I have a pb4 polaris booster pump that doesn't seem to put out enough pressure to run the pool sweep.

Check your in line screen and wall fitting to make sure they are right. Sometimes the over pressure button on the wall fitting will blow out.

Also, your local pool store should have a pressure stick they will lend you. It connects the end of the hose where the Polaris would be. You should be getting a least 28 psi. If you are getting less, you may have a clog in the booster pump's impeller. If you have that or more, the problem is internal to the Polaris. Verify that the backup valve is working properly as well.

Pump seems to start ok - 240 volts - shaft spins but not enough water pressure to move the polaris cleaner?

It sounds like you could have some debris stuck in the impeller on this pump. This is a common problem and anything that gets past the pool filter can end up stuck in this pump.

The wheels are not moving when hooked up, When i move one manually they all move. i made sure the pool filter basket is clean and the water pressure going into polaris seems like it is strong.

Also check the skimmer basket and pump. Make sure they are functioning properly. Check all hoses, connections, and swivels for leaks that could be causing a lack of water pressure in these pool cleaners. Make sure that your wheel RPM is between 28 and 32. Increase the pressure to create more RPM.

The pump seems to be running but the water is not coming through with any increased pressure, therefore the cleaner is not being propelled within the pool. What could cause the pump to suddenly lose...

You have spun the center out of the impeller. Get a new impelleer at your pool supply place. While you have the pump open, replace the seals as well.

Will the the pump run if it is connected

You can not connect the pump to run 'backwards' since the motor rotation is an internal connection you cannot change. Yes, the port should have water pressure, not a vacuum. Perhaps the wall inlet adapter is installed into the wrong wall port? Did someone change the wall port to allow for a suction side cleaner? Is this a new installation or sudden problem with an old one?

My no flow light is on and the polaris won't move

Not too much to go on but i'll give it a shot. Polaris won't move cause there is no or little water pressure. A number of things can cause this, and i'll give you the most common. Dirty or clogged filter. If it's a cartridge type, remove cartridge and try running without it. Clogged output of pump. No input to pump. Make sure pump is primed.
