Pentair IntelliFlo VF High Performance Pump
INTRODUCING THE MOST VALUABLE TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION IN POOL EQUIPMENT HISTORY!
The new Pentair IntelliFlo® VF High Performance Variable Speed Pumps slash energy use by 30% to 90%, saving hundreds per year.
Few pool owners realize their pool pump can use more electricity than all the appliances in their home. That’s because most pool pumps are traditional single-speed models with ¾ HP or larger, induction-style motors. For decades this was the norm because electricity costs were low and supply was abundant.
Fortunately, now there are digitally controlled, variable speed IntelliFlo® VF High Performance Pumps with permanent magnet motors.
Permanent magnet motors assure a 30% base savings compared to induction motors. Then, savings build up to 90% with the ability to custom program the optimum pump speed or water flow for different functions—filtering, heating, cleaning, spa jets, and water features.
The secret to minimizing pump energy use is to operate at the lowest speed needed to accomplish a job. It takes far less energy to move water slowly than quickly. In fact, reducing pump speed by half reduces power needed to an eighth of what was needed previously to get the job done. These new pumps allow you to set and adjust pump speed to achieve the minimum energy use.
IntelliFlo® employs variable drive technology controlled by an onboard computer and sophisticated software to allow pinpoint programming, or TOTALLY AUTOMATIC OPERATION, to achieve and maintain optimum (typically lower) flow rates for further energy savings. IntelliFlo® typically operates at an average of just 1/10th of a horsepower, using about 100 watts of energy…about the same as a light bulb. Exclusive, variable speed capability builds savings up to 90%, resulting in dramatically lower electricity expenses. P_I_P
