A Breakthrough in Energy-Efficiency, Service Life, and Silent OperationThe IntelliFlo® 4x160 is the best defense against rising energy costs!
Until now, pool pumps have operated at one or two speeds, near the top of their range, leading to higher energy usage and faster wear. Now there’s a dramatically superior choice. The IntelliFlo® 4x160 high performance pump is the first programmable, variable speed technology pump that allows programming of four different speeds (each between 400 and 3,450 RPMs) for four different jobs. The increased energy-efficiency provides typical energy savings of 30% annually. Your pool professional will help you set the proper speed for your filtration cycle. Set another for spa operation. And another for a water feature or two. Plus, as you replace or add new equipment, each setting can be changed in seconds, as needed, to make sure you always use the least amount of energy possible.
The IntelliFlo 4x160 achieves incredible efficiency and breakthrough performance:

How much money can I save with a variable speed pump?
The amount of money that a pool owner can save will vary greatly. Using this guide will help you get the most out of your variable speed pool pump.
We get a lot of voltage variations (high sometimes but mostly brownouts). What is the safe operating range on this pump and will it automatically shut off in a low or high voltage situation?
The pump operates at 230V single phase. At roughly 210V the pump will automatically shut off.
What is the port size for this pump?
This pump has 2" ports.
What are the main differences between the 011013 4X160 Intelliflo and the 011012 IntelliFlo pump?
The 011012 IntelliFlo pump has 16 speeds and has a computer controller on the top of the motor. This controller will allow you to completely program and control the pump directly from this controller mounted on the motor. The 011013 is a 4 speed pump and does not have a controller on the pump motor so you would need an outside controller to turn the pump on and off and switch between the speeds where the 011012 does not require the seperate controller. The 011012 can also be controlled through the Pentair IntelliTouch system. You may view the intelliflo pumps here
(5 out of 5 stars) Pentair VS-3050 is an extremely quiet pump! Compared to our former pump.

Pros: Pump arrived in excellent condition-Pentair
Our pump was professionally installed by Azted Solar of Rancho Cordova. It is very quiet. It was installed on 4-19-2011. It was packed securely and was in perfect condition. Free shiping was great.

Reviewed By: Rodney H. from Lutz, FL ()
Pros: Super quiet, reduced power bill, variable speed for different pool functions
Cons: Expensive, concerned over maintenance reports!
The pump has met and exceeded expectations, it's super quiet and has significantly reduced electric bill which is being monitored but initial savings indicate a minimum of some 200Kw per month.
