I have an in ground 16'x36' approx. 27000 gals I believe. Is the Pentair SuperFlo VS Energy Efficient Variable Speed Pool Pump | 1.5HP Single Phase 115-230V 50-60HZ | 342001 the best energy saving Pentair pump for my pool?
Rick S on May 15, 2017
I have an Aqualink link system that i set my times for my pool to turn on and off. Will this pump communicate properly with Aqualink or will it override it?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2017
What size pool is this pump for?
mjamj on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My pool is small. 15,000 gallons. My previous pump was 1 hp and worked OK. I bought this pump and compatible filter to ensure good circulation and filtering. I am very happy with this pump and would recommend it.
I have an inground 22K gal pool. Currently have an old single speed 2hp pump with 2" piping. Will this VS pump be a good replacement?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Very probably. The fittings were very easy to connect to 2" pipe work. Ours is a 15K pool, replaced a 1.5hp pump single speed with this. Even if you're going down in HP, you can run slower and longer and save money.
Besides Pentair 342001 pump, do i need an additional valve (flow control) to qualify for CPPR Rebate ($1,000)?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My understanding is that variable speed pumps offer better energy efficiency than fixes speed pumps with flow control valves. Imagine a "fixed speed car". Accelerator fixed to the floor (max), and you use the brakes to control the speed :-) A variable speed pump is like a sensible car. It allows you to slow down by letting off the gas.
Does this come with the wire kit or do I buy it separate?
Clancy S on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Do you mean the wire kit for relocating the control panel? If so no.
For power I used the existing electrical connections.
Ihave a jandy model #phpu1.5 with 2" male connectors what are the dementions for connections can't find in manual, will it fit without much problem? thanks.
Bill H on Jun 14, 2018
how many watts does it use?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry had the pump away for winter in the shed. I run 230v with 2x 1.5" suction lines and 1.5" discharge to split jets. Inground, 2.7cu/ft sand filter, hayward 6 way valve, something like 18.5k-20k total gallons.

All info from pump display:

3450rpm = 1925w
2950rpm = 1205w
2550rpm = 810w
2200rpm = 550w
1950rpm = 405w
i have a challanger pump on my 30,000 gal pool how does this pump hook up to my system?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure I fully understand the question, but usually the pump draws in water from the intake with the basket (side) and pushes water out of the outlet (top). Water goes from main drain ==> pump ==> filter ==> water return or water features. The pump is self priming. Mine is mounted about 1.5 feet above the water line with a check valve. It sits directly on a concrete slab open to the elements for 2 years. I cannot advise on the size of the pool, you need a pool supply expert for that. Hope this helps.
My existing pump is located in a tight equipment room that will make the control panel upside down and hard to read. Can the control panel be a few feet up on the wall?
Mike R on Jan 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Pentair does not make a cable for this to relocate and unfortunately there is no way of removing it for better viewing. The only way would be to re plumb it to a different location.
I have an AO Smith single speed 1 HP pool pump that just stopped working. Is this a good replacement? 16K gallon pool in AZ
Chuck on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a 10K indoor pool and currently run the pump at speed 3 (medium) for 3 hours a day when heating the pool otherwise I run it at speed 2 (low) 24 hours a day. I only use speed 1 (fast) when vacuuming the pool. So it should easily handle a 16K pool. my old pump was 3/4 HP and I'm saving about $40/month in electric with this pump over my old 3/4HP pump. The old pump ran 24Hours/day at full speed. Current electric rate in for me in KY is 8.795?/kWh.
does this include a skimmer basket on it?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes.. it's all inclusive. Just need to have your pool guy connect the pump into your system...
Is this good for inground 15000 gal pool?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I've had mine for going on three season now. I love it, it's worked perfectly and best of all my electric is very low because it's a variable speed pump. With high dollar items I feel like if you get 10 years out of something then you've got your moneys worth so we will see. But so far so good.
You have the Pentair SuperFlo VS variable speed pump listed for $615.00. This pump is eligible for the Edision rebate. Does Pool Supply Unlimited take the rebate directly off the price of the pump or do i have to request the rebate directly from my utility company?
Gerry R on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: hello Jerry, this is Joe I own one of these pumps. I can accurately answer your question my area does not have a rebate program and I don't know what the company policy is. Chances are you have to buy it and apply for the refund through your utility company. Sorry I can't be of more help. I would think the company would have an answer for you
Hi, Does the communication cable come as standard component with this pump, the SuperFlo VS, p/n 342001, or you have to buy it separately? Thank you.
A shopper on Dec 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is separate. I wish I had purchased it. My pump is in a pump house and it would be easier to control it closer to the pool.
how will the rebate portion work if i install?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hmm. I don't remember using a rebate, but this pump is worth the price even without a rebate. In fact it is even cheaper than when I got it if I recall correctly. Used for about 2 years so far, and it is still quiet, powerful, perfect!
Do you have to run this pump for 24 hours a day?
Jay M on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have a 10,000 gal. pool. In summer we run it every day - 2 hours high, 4 hours low. In winter depending on look of pool and chemicals it’s about every second day
can this pump be hard wired ?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not as long as you put it on a ground fault breaker.
is their a cover for this pump?
A shopper on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, over the controls of the pump is a hinged metal cover that both diverts water or protects it from any item falling on it. I suppose it keeps the sun off it as well if used outside of a pump room. Had the pump over a year now and wish I got it sooner.
What do they mean by saying the time control is not exposed at installation?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The screen with speed and timer settings has a cover over it. Nice pump works well and saves you $$ on electric
Will the Pentair 342001 1.5HP variable speed pump replace my 2HP single speed pump with SF 1.2 on a 25K gallon pool andc1.5” plumbing?
Jorge R on Feb 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: That was nearly my situation exactly. I have about a 33 K pool but same plumbing diameter. I love this pump. It switches over to my spa and increases its speed. It’s been very cost fffective as far as electricity use. I’ve had no problems with it in 3 years. Plus I received a $1000 rebate from the city for buying it! It technically cost me nothing to put it in. (Caution, follow their directions exactly if you’re eligible for a rebate, read it before you start). Good luck.
Is this pump good for a 7200 gal pool? (Vinyl)
Ebow L on Jun 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have it on a 15000 gal inground pool and moves the water great. I haven't had any issues.
What does ext. control only mean?
John D on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This means that the pump has not been programmed to operate “automatically” according to the owners choice of on/off “time,” “speed” & “duration.” Once programmed, the Pump is on “automatic,” 24/7.
What size filter should I have with this pump so that it's effecient as possible?
tristyn a on Mar 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am using a Sta-Rite S8M150 on a 22,000 gal. Salt Water pool with a Pentair 1.5 hp variable speed pump. My water is always crystal clear. I like the fact that it's super easy to clean the cartridge filters, I take them out and hose them off once a month. My original set of filter cartridges lasted 10 years.
whats the hp?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Are you asking what does Hp (Horse Power) mean or what is the Hp rating of this pump?
Well it says in the listing: 1.5HP pump
It is variable so the RPM (so as the power consumption) can be lowered to the desired speed
" Pentair SuperFlo VS Energy Efficient Variable Speed Pool Pump | 1.5HP Single Phase 115-230V 50-60HZ | 342001"
does this have a low flow cut off in case the water level drops below the skimmer in the pool so as not to burn up the motor?
jack R on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: To my knowledge no it doesnt. However I have never had my pool water level low enough to confirm it.Because of its internal clock I can not link my salt water systems on and off time with it Neither. I still use my mechanical clock to turn on and off the salt water system
What is the current draw at speed 3 / 1600RPM?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Correction to my original answer. My pump draws about 1400 W on speed 3. 690 on speed 2.
Will this work on an above ground pool? I have a 27 ft. x 4 ft..
Jay W on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This pump is designed for an in ground pool but you may be able to use it in an above ground. You would need it hardwired into an automation unit or time clock and it would need to be on a lower setting.
Can this pump be used with salt water?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can, we have a salt water pool and it works great.
I have a 25000 gallon pool with a Hayward sand filter (500) pounds with a Hayward super pump single speed pump. I have 1.5 inch pipe and my fiter has a 98 gpm flowrate. Would this be the best choice or can I go with the 3 hp unit?
jerry f on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there. You really don't need 3 hp pump for the job. 1.5 hp is sufficient enough. Keep in mined the larger the pump the more it will consume energy.

Quiet, powerful, perfect
This pump primes well, runs quietly, and moves lots of water efficiently. Mine has been running on automatic for the last 2 years, and it still purrs beautifully. 2 inch pipes pushing water through a large cartridge filter. The fact that it can do this on 110V single phase (like ordinary plug in current your toaster uses) was a big win for me when selecting it for my project.

You can use the up/down arrows to change the RPM in very small increments, and watch the power consumption in watts on the LCD as the speed changes. Way Cool for the geek in me !!! (Played with it for days :-) This feature allows you to tune very large water features perfectly in the most energy efficient way.

Great quiet pump
Easy installation, works great and is quiet. I had the local electric company come out to check it for a rebate and they said it could run for 10 hours for the same power as the old 1.5hp pump used in 2 hours. It's easy to change the programming, I would buy it again!

Excellent pump
I have this pump for about 3 months. It has decreased my electric bill substantially. I had to play with the automatic chlorinater to get the chemicals adjusted just right. Variable speed is the way to go.

Pentair Variable Speed Pump
The best pool pump there is if you have a 110. Save massive amounts of electric. Had this shipped from Pool Supply Unlimited from CA to FL and still destroyed my local pool companies price as well as all online competitors. Thank you!

Super Quiet
So much quieter than my old pump, even at full rpm, at lower rpm can't even hear it! Waiting to see how much energy it saves me per month. Only thing I would like to change is the display and cover lid should be able to be rotated 180 dg. with a minor design change this could be done,
