Asked on 04/24/2016 by Errold Cyril

Our electrical system in St Lucia 230/240 - 50cycles. Can your3hp IntelliFlo Variable Speed pump be used in such a system? Or do you carry a 3hp variable unit which could be applied to this system?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/26/2016 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Errold, The IntelliFlo Variable Speed pump can operate on 50 Hz power.

Question

Asked on 04/20/2016 by Tammy

My current pump is a Hayward power-flo matrix sp1515 and says 115 volts on it. Breaker for that and a smaller booster pump is 30 amps. How do I know if the Intelliflo will work with my existing electrical?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/20/2016 by Product Specialist Hector F.

The Intelliflo does not come with 110/115 volt option. You would need to use either the SuperMax VS or Superflo VS which have a 1.5 max horse power.

Hi I just purchased 3hp IntelliFlo vs pump 230v, my old pump is 1hp only 115v/240 will I need to change any electrical at circuit board or anything? Thanks

Hi Ryan, You will not need to change the electrical if you already have 230 volts to power the IntelliFlo VS pump.

Asked on 03/29/2016 by david

I have an old sta-rite pump intellipro vs+svrs 3hp that's gone bad. will the new Pentair 011018 be compatible with my old HRP30 sand filter. Its rates MAX PSI is 50 and MAX GPM is 98. I've been told the filter is too old and wont hand/be efficient enough for the Pentair 011018

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/29/2016 by Product Specialist Scott W.

Good afternoon David,The Intelliflo would be a great pump to upgrade to, as far as the sand filter, if you are not having any problems with your current filter I would just leave it be until something goes bad on it and you have to start replacing parts on it. I would recommend a DE filter over a sand filter. www.inyopools.com/search_de_filters.aspx

Asked on 03/20/2016 by Neill

I am going to replace a 16 year old Hayward Super II 1.5 HP with a Pentair Intelliflo VS ( I think). I have in-floor popup cleaners and large solar panels on the roof for my 13,000 gallon pool. What is your recommended model and size?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/22/2016 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Neil, The Intelliflo VS Pump (011018) is a suitable replacement pump. However the Speck EasyFit PNT VS Pump is also a good replacement if you don't need a 3 HP VS pump.

Question

Asked on 03/01/2016 by JC

Hi, currently my pump is attached to 110V line. I like to purchase the Pentair 011018 IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump and need to know if there is an option on the pump to run on 110V as my old Pentair pump does. Looking at the voltage panel it looks just the same, I need to know if the pump will have all the functions working if I connect it to the 110V line or I have to run the 230V line to the pump, thank you !

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/02/2016 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi JC, This pump will not be able to run off of 110 volt power, you will have to upgrade your electrical in order to use the IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump.

Question

Asked on 10/23/2015 by

I am thinking about replacing my single speed pump with the intelliflo variable speed pump. I read in some reviews that it would not work with solar heating panels because the safety mechanism kept shutting off the pump. It is true? I have solar heating panels on my roof which is 3 stories high. Will it work?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/23/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The IntelliFlo Variable Speed (011018) will work with solar, the  IntelliFlo Variable Speed w/ SVRS (011017) is the model that would not work with solar or in-floor cleaning systems.

Question

Asked on 10/22/2015 by Tom

All of the pictures I've seen of this pump show the controller oriented so that you have to be looking at the pump from the motor end. My equipment is enclosed by three walls, with the pump basket at the open front and the pump motor pointed towards the back wall. It seems like this would be difficult to program in this orientation. Can the controller be rotated 180 degrees for easier setting? (A Hayward VS pump controller can be removed and mounted on a wall.)

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/23/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Tom, The IntelliFlo Variable Speed controller can not be rotated or removed to be wall mounted, that's one con's of this pump. Otherwise this is a great pump.

I have a 23,000 gallon pool running a Pentair VS Intelliflo pump and Pentair Quad DE 100 filter. How long do I need the pump to run for normal day-today- filtering? And at what speed/rpm?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 07/23/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Chris, Based on the Pentair Pool Pump Calculator, to turnover your size pool within an 8 hour time frame you will have to run the IntelliFlo Variable Speed at 1700 RPM.

Question

Asked on 05/19/2015 by Brian

I currently have a STA-Rite Pump model P6EAA6F-206L 1.5 HP pump. It is starting to make a loud whining noise at start up. So I am thinking it is time to up grade. This is for residential. The pump I have has worked great for 8 years. Are the connections any different between the old and this new model? Am I correct, you want me to pay to have one pump removed and another installed to have a 3 yr warranty? If the connections are the same or similar, that's just a waste of my money.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/19/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Brian, The Pentair Intelliflo pump listed on this page would not have the same plumbing port locatons as your Max E Pro pump. We do still carry the Max E Pro Pump so if you wanted an easy swap out of the pump then that may be the way to go. You also have the option of just replacing the motor and this would be the 1-1/2 HP Full Rate Max E Pro Replacement motor if you replace the motor you will also need a Max E Pro Tune Up Kit. The Intelliflo pump on this page is a variable speed pump which means you can dial the HP up or down on the pump to really save you a ton on your operational costs. I'm not sure about the warranty question as our warranty on any of these pumps is 1 year so you may have been speaking to Pentair directly on this.

Question

Asked on 03/10/2015 by Bob

-- On page 31 of the operating manual it states that this pump requires 230vac +/-10%. -- On page 3 it says that this pump is a 3 phase motor. -- To the best of my recollection almost all residential homes are just 2 phase, and not 3 phase, so is this pump only used in commercial applications where 3 phase is typically available? -- Lastly, what HP is this pump rated at? Thanks!

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/11/2015 by Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Bob - The 011018 Intelliflo is a single phase pump. This is a residential pump. Residential homes have single phase electricity. This pump is 3HP.

Question

Asked on 12/13/2014 by michael

I have a new Pentair Inteliflo VS, a Pentair Intelichlor IC 60,( with the power center). Must I have a control system, i.e. Intelitouch or Suntouch etc. in order to make these two items run in co-ordination with one another? If not, how do I wire the two items so they are in sync?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 12/15/2014 by Product Specialist Brian M.

Hello Michael - SInce the Inteliflo takes the place of a standard timer box, the only way to get these two to run in sync is with a controller system. Either the Intellitouch ( with assorted options ) or the Suntouch  will do.

Question

Asked on 06/26/2012 by Guest

I have a Pentair Intelliflo 3 HP VS pump. My pool is small- about 10,000 gals. I know my pump is overkill. What size DE Filer would be most compatible and efficient to use with this pump? 36, 48 or 60??

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/26/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

If you wanted the ability to run the Intelliflo pump at the highest speed which is roughly 3 HP then I would suggest the largest of these filters. On a standard pool set up the Pentair Intelliflo VS will be outputting 120 Gallons Per Minute (GPM) at the high speed, with this being said we would suggest a filter which can handle at least 120 GPM's. Out of the Pentair FNS DE filters you listed we would suggest the Pentair FNS Plus 60 Sq. Ft. Filter which would have a max flow rating of 120 GPM's. You would also need to get the Multiport Valve for the FNS filter which allows you to backwash or clean the filter.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Excellent pump

Reviewed By: from Sun City West, AZ ()

Pros: Quiet, efficient, well made.

Cons: None

This is the best performing variable speed pump product on the market. It was easy to install, and program, and quiet. My first pump was a Pentair 1 1/2hp, which lasted 7 years. I would have just replace the motor if I could, but the state of Arizona require all pool pumps now to be variable speed pumps. When I found that out and review the options with my pool man
, who has been in the business for 15 years, he said Pentair is the best.
I checked around for pricing and INYOPools beat the competition. My questions were all answered by the sales people, and because I am in Arizona, they set me up to have my product shipped from the closest wharehouse location, instead of Florida. It was shipped from Texas. Thank you INYO for the excellent service. Lou in Arizona.
