Pentair IntelliFlo VS+SVRS Variable Speed Pump 011057
The 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.
Traditional 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. Whats 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 yearand often more than $1,000 in areas with the highest energy rates.
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 tasksfiltering, 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.
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. Its that simple to optimize water flow for any application.
The 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 A126.96.36.1992 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.

*Savings 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.
