Pentair IntelliFlo Variable Speed High Performance Pump VS+SVRS 3.2kW 3HP Max 230V | EC-011057
BEST ANSWER: First, I am not an expert, but I purchased the Intelliflo pump due to the fact that I have a large pool and a water feature and so I needed more HP. Also it is energy star rated so it is less expensive to operate and a rebate is available for me, and that model of variable speed pump has safety vacuum release system, which is a safety measure designed to help avoid entrapment at the main pool drain.

You should decide whether these features are important to you and that the value of these features is worth any additional cost.

Also, the size of your pool is a better gauge of whether a pump is sufficiently sized, not the filter size. You should ensure that the pool has adequate turnover of volume of water through the filter to keep the water clean.

Hayward Pentair
Installation was very straightforward. I had an old Pentair sand filter, took about 1-2 hours for entire switch out. Beats a sand filter 100 times over. Overall it was what I expected as far as filtration, and the price was the best I found.
