Pentair IntelliFlo VS-SVRS Pump 011017
Pentair IntelliFlo Variable Speed pumps combine variable drive
technology, onboard digital intelligence, and permanent magnet motors
(used in hybrid cars) to reduce pump-related energy costs by up to 90%.
The new IntelliFlo VS+SVRS model is the first swimming pool pump to
feature a built-in Safety Vacuum Release System that detects drain
blockage and automatically shuts the pump off.
An Eco Select
Brand Choice: Standard pool pumps can consume as much energy as all
other home appliances combined, often costing residential pool owners
more than $1,000 per year! IntelliFlo pumps can typically cut energy use
up to 90%, generally saving $620 to $1,360 in utility costs
annually...more where rates are higher than average.*
pool pumps have offered a limited number of single-speed and two-speed
designs. Their motor speeds are set and unchangeable. These set speeds
are almost always higher than required, thereby overpowering the jobs
they are assigned to do, which wastes energy. What’s more, these pumps
rely on induction motors that are notorious energy hogs. In fact, even
so-called “energy-efficient” pumps can cost more to operate than almost
all other home appliances combined. Pump-related electric costs
typically total hundreds of dollars per year—and often more than $1,000
in areas with the highest energy rates.
IntelliFlo VS-3050 Pump Features:
- 3 Horespower Variable Speed Pump
- SVRS model complies with Virginia Graeme Baker Safety Act
- Unlike other devices, the built-in SVRS protection with the IntelliFlo pump cannot be turned off.
- For added safety, if the SVRS becomes disabled, the pump will not run.
- Four function buttons to set / program exact pump speeds for specific
operation - filtering, heating, cleaning, spa jets, water features and
more - slashes energy costs up to 90%
- Speed adjustment buttons - you or your pool professional dial in the most efficient speed for each application
- Built-in diagnostics protect the IntelliFlo pump from the most common
causes of premature failure - priming protection, overheating, freezing
and voltage irregularities.
- Safety lock-out feature (password
protected) on SVRS model prevents pump speed settings from being changed
by unauthorized personnel
- Ability to set minimum and maximum
speeds on SVRS model so IntelliFlo will only operate within the ranges
set to help assure safe operation and long life
- Alarm status light - a sequence of blinks alerts you of conditions that may need attention
- Compatible with IntelliTouch, EasyTouch and SunTouch pool control systems
- NSF Certified, UL and ETL listed as an ASME A188.8.131.522 Device
- Includes IntelliTouch - IntelliFlo Communication Cable
- 230 Volts
pumps are the first to use exclusive permanent magnet motor technology
(used in hybrid cars), a fundamentally more energy-efficient design
compared to traditional induction motors.
IntelliFlo pumps also
include a variable speed capability, along with digital controls and
proprietary software that allow custom programming of optimum pump
speeds for specific tasks—filtering,
heating, cleaning, spa jets,
waterfalls, etc. There are eight individual, adjustable speed settings
at your command. For virtually all applications, the optimum speed will
be lower than the preset, unchangeable speed of older pumps. You exploit
a fundamental pump law—slow down the pump and power consumption is
reduced. A good analogy is your car: you get much better mileage at 30
mph than 90 mph.
Programming the IntelliFlo VS+SVRS pump is as
easy as setting the stations on your car radio. With the pump running,
simply press the speed button assigned to the operation you want to
manage. Then, just press the “up” or “down” button to increase or
decrease the speed setting between 1100 RPM and 3450 RPM. It’s that
simple to optimize water flow for any application.
IntelliFlo® VS+SVRS Variable Speed Pump is the first pump with an
integrated Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) which provides an
important layer of entrapment protection. Its built-in controller and
proprietary software detect blockage of the drain and automatically shut
the pump off. The IntelliFlo VS+SVRS pump meets ASME A184.108.40.2062
standards, thereby complying with new Federal legislation related to
public pools (Virginia Graeme Baker Pool Safety Act), as well as a
growing number of state and local statutes/codes for residential pools
where entrapment protection measures are required.
based on comparison pump running between 6 and 12 hours per day at the
national average of 15 cents/kilowatt hour in a 20,000 gallon pool.
Actual savings may vary based on plumbing size and length, pump model,
service factor, flow rates, and other hydraulic factors.
$50 - $600 IntelliFlo VS Rebate
Inefficient pool pumps are considered a significant drain on energy and therefore a prime target for replacement with newer, more energy-efficient models. That's why a number of utility companies are offering rebate incentives to pool owners for the purchase of energy-efficient swimming pool pumps.
Below is a list of utilities offering rebates for purchase of an IntelliFlo VS variable speed pump. Please note, program dates and eligibility requirements are subject to change by the utility company without notice. See specific utility company website to verify program details and availability.
