Pentair Pool Pumps: Variable Speed

Pentair pool pumps such as the IntelliFlo® VS Pool Pump with time clock are highly energy-efficient pool pumps. Pool owners can save more with these types of Pentair pool pumps than with others – with energy savings of up to 90%!

When IntelliFlo variable speed technology was first introduced into Pentair pool pumps, it set off a marketplace revolution with its energy efficiency, near-silent operation, and long service life.

The IntelliFlo Variable Speed is Pentair pool pump that further refines the field-proven advancements that have led IntelliFlo pumps to outsell all other variable speed brands combined. Check out some of the advantages of these Pentair pool pumps and you’ll quickly see why:

  • Estimated cost savings of up to $1,500 each year*
  • 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

*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 HP single-speed pump.

    I have a IntelliFlo Variable Speed by Pentair, my pool has 20,000 gallons of water, I use a Pentair Shark pool cleaner. I am running my IntelliFlo Variable Speed by Pentair for 2 hours at 3000 RPM (1 hour in the morning and 1 hour at the end of the day) and 10 hours at 800 RPM. Can I reduce my run times or speeds? I live in South Florida. I can not find this kind of info on the web. Thanks, Les

    Thank you for posting to our blog! Our Pool Care Experts suggest that you run the pool cleaner for two hours straight at start-up. The pool cleaner kicks up dirt while cleaning, and one hour isn’t enough time to accomplish thorough cleaning of the pool. We also suggest running the pool filter at 3000 rpm for two hours in the morning and then continue 10 hours at 800 rpm to at least turn the water in the pool once.

    During the fall and spring, try to turn the water over one time a day. In the hot part of the summer you may want to turn over the water 1 ½ to 2 times a day, depending on the sunlight and air temperature.

    Note: Some electrical services offer a discount for using electricity in off-peak times. Your utility company can tell you if you qualify for this. If it does, you might want to run the pump during the night hours and take advantage of the additional savings.

    Thank you again for writing, and please let us know if we can be of further assistance!
