Pentair Intelliflo is the new standard of swimming pool pumps. Pentair Intelliflo monitors, controls and adjusts to a range of demands and different pool conditions. The Intelliflo is a variable speed pump whose watts/amps vary according to the pressure and flow of your swimming pool. Pentair have made built-in protections to the Intelliflo being loss of prime flow impedance, thermal overload, freezing protection and under and over voltage. Pentair Intelliflo is an Eco Efficient product that will reduce energy consumption by 30 - 90%. Intelliflo is manufactured to be versatile, on it's own Pentair Intelliflo can be used for several applications (filtration, cleaning, waterfalls, etc.) reducing the maintenance cost of your swimming pool. The noise level on the Pentair Intelliflo is un-noticed when operating, it is quiet as human whisper.
Normal pool pumps have a motor and an on/off switch. They are either on full blast and pumping at one single speed or they are off. Intelliflo pumps can vary the speed at which the motor turns and so vary the flow through the pump. In doing so they use far less power but this does not mean your pool filtration will suffer.
Normal pool pumps have a copper wound motor that runs on a bearing. This makes noise and will wear out in time. Intelliflo pumps have a permanent magnet motor that spins without a bearing and so it makes no noise and does not wear out.
Because normal pumps only have one flow rate you have to choose which horse power rating is appropriate for your pool. The Intelliflo pool pumps can be set for any equivalent horse power rating from zero to 3HP, however, there are two types of Intellifo pumps. One works by changing the speed that the motor turns the other has a flow meter and LCD display and is set by controlling the flow rate of the water. The pump has 4 user programmable settings for your desired flow rates.
The Intelliflo Pool Pump makes use of the fact that a 50% reduction in water flow leads to an 90% reduction in power consumption. So you may have to run the pump for a longer time to achieve your filtration but you will use much less power in doing so. Also when you need to heat the pool the faster the water goes through the heater the better so you can turn up the speed when in heating mode and turn it down when in filtration mode - all this at the touch of a button!

- ENERGY SAVING Lower electricity bill and fast payback (1-3 years)
- LOW NOISE LEVEL Unnoticed when operating, quiet as a human whisper!
- WATER TREATMENT SAVING Optimised water flow = less and shorter filter backwashes = better water maintenance and minor lose of chemical and filter media.
- ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY Extremely low operation noise, high indirect impact in the reduction of CO2 emissions.
- WARRANTY 3 Years
- LONGER EQUIPMENT LIFE The motor protects itself from damage by adjusting for voltage variations as well as reducing it's speed to prevent motor overheating.
Pentair Intelliflo Advantages Add More Value For Money
Thanks to its permanent magnet motor and the fact that it is totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) design, which means there are no touching parts rubbing against each other. This means the pentair pump is the quietest pump on the planet ever made. At typical speeds you can hardly hear it's operating!
IntelliFlo permanent magnet motor produces far less heat and vibration that the standard self priming induction motor pumps. This not only results in less strain & wear on the components of the pump, but also on other equipment. Furthermore, on investigating the main faults we regularly hear with the induction pump it would be overheating, freezing and voltage irregularities. The intelliflo pumps has a motor that protects itself from damage by adjusting it's voltage variations as well as reducing its speed to prevent motor over heating. The result is you can expect a dramatically longer life and even greater return on your investment.
The Intelliflo can also adjust to new features and equipment without changing the pump. You can add a solar heating system or water feature or even change your filter by simply pushing a button to set the optimum speed to operate at the lowest energy use. Your savings are maintained even as your swimming pool system changes.
The Intelliflo has the ability to manage water features by altering the performance of the pump. Want to add height to deck jets or fountains? want to increase the water flow to waterfalls or a vanishing edge you simply increase or decrease pump speed with a touch of a button to adjust the demand. You manage the sights and sounds of your back garden retreat whilst driving energy cost down to new lows.
