Why More Pool Owners Save with IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pumps
When Pentair first introduced IntelliFlo variable speed technology, it set off a marketplace revolution with its energy efficiency, near-silent operation and long service life.
The IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump further refines the field-proven advancements that have led IntelliFlo pumps to outsell all other variable speed brands. Check out these advantages, and you'll quickly see why:
  • Estimated cost savings of up to $1,500 each year ¹
  • Energy savings up to 90% versus traditional pumps
  • Dramatically quieter operation-as low as 45 decibels.†
  • 8 programmable speed settings and built-in timer assure optimum speed and run times for maximum efficiency and savings
¹ Savings based on variable speed pump compared to a single-speed pump running 12 hours per day at an average of $0.16 per kWh in a 20,000 gallon pool. Actual savings may vary based on local utility rates, pool size, pump run time, pump horsepower, pump rpm, plumbing size and length, pump model, service factor and other hydraulic factors.
†Compared to noise level of typical 1.5-horsepower single-speed pump.
First Then, First Now
IntelliFlo pumps brought variable speed technology to market-years ahead of every other manufacturer. But, the leader never stands still. So, they've taken full advantage of our head start to perfect these IntelliFlo pump firsts:
  • Ultra-efficient, permanent magnet motors, as used in advanced hybrid cars
  • Precise matching of motor speed to your pool's needs
  • Totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) motor design for long life and quiet operation
  • Built-in diagnostics protect the pump for longer service life
And today, IntelliFlo pumps still lead the way with all these advantages:
  • Permanent magnet motor design for greater efficiency
  • More total energy savings than any other pool pump family in history
  • Nearly a decade of proven in-field reliability
  • Exclusive software and digital controls make programming a cinch
  • Easy installation for inground pools and pool/spa combos of all types and sizes, new or existing
  • Once installed, the IntelliFlo pump is fully compatible with IntelliTouch®, EasyTouch® and SunTouch® Control Systems, providing a range of options from indoor control panels to wireless remotes to manage pool heating, lighting, spa jets, water features and more. For even greater control, add an optional ScreenLogic® Interface to your automation system and access your pool from practically anywhere and at anytime using your smartphone, computer or mobile digital device

Can this pump be used with salt water pool?
Dina C on Nov 23, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes, almost all pool pumps can be used with salt systems as the salt content is very minimal in the water compared to, say the ocean. The biggest hit to a pump is debris getting past the screens (basket) and PH level going acidic.
Looking to buy pentair variable speed pump. Which hp I need if my pool is 18000 gallons. Please provide item number of pump?
Ghassan M on Mar 30, 2022
BEST ANSWER: The pump is variable speed you can change speed or HP from 1/2hp to 3hp . Just set the speed that works for your pool . There are 4 speeds you can set .they are very Efficient
How many hours a day should this pump run?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This is really dependent on how large the pool is. You ideally want the pump to be able to cycle the water at least 3 times a day at a minimum. This means that if you have a 10K gallon pool, and the pump is running 80 gallons a minute, it is cycling 4,800 gallons an hour so the pool would cycle three times in 6 hours. Since this is a variable speed pump, you can reduce the speed and run it longer, but there are a number of factors that you have to consider for this question.
I have a whisper flo 1hp now. 18000 gallon pool? Will this one work? I see it says 3hp MAX.
Jenjen88 on Jun 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It works for our 12,000 gallon salt water pool just fine. Our Pentair controls switch the pump to hot tub mode and powers the jets.

Most satisfied with my purchase the delivery was unbelievable

this pump is so quiet you don't know it's running. Now I'm

looking to replace my heater and am going to invest in a

Pentair, I will purchase it from Pool Supply because of their

service, they're like your neighborhood pool supply store but

less expensive.

Excellent pump, but user interface needs work
Pump works very well. Quiet and efficient. My only gripe is that the control board menus are not intuitive or user friendly. Setting a schedule shouldn't take a Ph.D. They should use something similar to a sprinkler system schedule setup. Also, there should be a "schedule setup example" in the manual. I get that it's trial and error to get it perfect for each pool, but a template to work with would be helpful.

Excellent Pool Pump
My original Intelliflo pump gave up the ghost (well, bearings) after 10+ years of stable, reliable performance. I did not consider a different pump. Installation was a breeze. Integration with my Pentair automation system was as easy as connecting the cable; my configurations for my original pump worked seamlessly.

And two great big thumbs up for the people at Pool Supply Unlimited. They patiently answered my questions to ensure I purchased the correct pump for my pool.

Great product! Great people! Big win!
