Motor Service on the IntelliFlo VS+ SVRS and IntelliPro VS+ SVRS Pool Pumps

Here are some tips for understanding motor service on the IntelliFlo VS+ SVRS and IntelliPro VS+ SVRS Pool Pumps. Always protect your pool pump from heat, against dirt and against moisture. Remember, if a pool motor has been damaged by dirt or water, it voids the motor warranty.

1. Protect from heat:

  • Shade the pool motor and controller from the sun.
  • Any enclosure must be well ventilated to prevent overheating. Particular attention should be paid to the motor fan cover and the cooling fins between the drive and the pool motor.
  • Provide ample cross ventilation.

2. Protect against dirt:

  • Protect from any foreign matter or splashing water.
  • Do not store (or spill) pool chemicals near the pool motor.
  • Avoid sweeping or stirring up dust near the pool motor while it is operating.
  • If a pool motor has been damaged by dirt it voids the motor warranty.

3. Protect against moisture:

  • Protect from splashing pool water.
  • Protect from the weather.
  • Protect from lawn sprinklers.
  • If a pool motor has become wet, let it dry before operating. Do not allow the pool pump to operate if it has been flooded.
  • If a pool motor has been damaged by water, it voids the motor warranty.

Note: DO NOT wrap pool motor and controller with plastic or other air tight materials. The motor and controller may be covered, but not wrapped in plastic, during a storm, for winter storage, etc., but never when operating, or expecting operation.
