Considering a variable speed pump for your inground pool? Learn about variable speed pumps from the inground pool experts at Southern Poolscapes.
The pool pump is the single most inefficient piece of equipment on your pool. Standard induction motors operating at high speeds on pumps that are usually oversized are huge energy hogs.
PENTAIR INTELLIFLO, COMPUTER CONTROLLED PUMP, IS THE QUIETEST POOL PUMP IN THE WORLD!
Sizing a pump correctly and using a state of the art, computer controlled permanent magnet pump (like used in hybrid cars) such as the Pentair IntelliFlo can cut your energy usage by as much as 90%! In addition, the Pentair IntelliFlo is the QUIETEST pool pump in the world.
The Pentair IntelliFlo also allows for 8 different programmable speeds that automatically change based on what is operating in your pool. For example, low speed for daily filtration, high speed for a waterfall/spillway feature or ultra high speed for spa jet therapy and faster filtering time (for example, after a party.)
For virtually all applications, the optimum pump speed will be lower than the pre-set, unchangeable speeds of older pumps. Using slower speeds takes advantage of a fundamental pump characteristic: by going slower, power consumption is reduced. When pump speeds are reduced by half, energy consumption is just one-eighth of what was previously used. The result is additional savings – potentially up to 90% compared to even so-called high efficiency single-speed and two-speed pumps.
