The IntelliFlo® VS+SVRS variable speed pump is the revolutionary
way to reduce energy costs and provide the safest possible
pool environment. This “intelligent” pump can cut the pool
portion of utility bills up to 90%, saving you hundreds of
dollars per year and thousands over its life. On the safety
front, this pump features a built-in Safety Vacuum Release
System (SVRS) that senses drain blockage and automatically
shuts the pump off to provide an important layer of
protection against entrapment.
The Costly Drawbacks
of Traditional Pumps
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. What’s
more, these pumps rely on induction
motors that are notorious energy
hogs. In fact, even so-called “energyefficient” pumps can cost more to operate than almost all
other home appliances combined. Pump-related electric
costs typically total hundreds of dollars per year—and often
more than $1,000 in areas with the highest energy rates.

safety, service life and silent operation
With all this in mind, turn the page to learn about a revolutionary change in pump technology…and discover the most
valuable and responsible addition you can make to your pool.

The Savings Story
IntelliFlo VS+SVRS features an exclusive blend of technology innovations that enables you
to slash pump-related utility costs by up to 90%, saving hundreds of dollars each year…
and thousands over the entire life of this revolutionary pump.
• Exclusive, advanced motor technology. IntelliFlo pumps are the first to use
exclusive permanent magnet motor technology (used in hybrid cars), a fundamentally
more energy-efficient design compared to traditional induction motors.
• Onboard intelligence with variable drive. 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 tasks—filtering, 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. You exploit a fundamental pump law—
slow down the pump and power consumption is reduced. A good analogy is your car:
you get much better mileage at 30 mph than 90 mph.
The result of these combined innovations is a pump that often uses just a fraction of the
horsepower of standard pumps, reducing energy use dramatically. This tremendous
improvement in efficiency translates directly into impressive savings.
Savings Specifics
Here are realistic estimates of annual savings when comparing a traditional energy-efficient (EE)
single-speed, 2-horsepower pump to IntelliFlo in a 20,000 gallon pool. Savings are calculated using
common run times of 6 and 12 hours.
• At $0.15/kWh estimated savings range from $620 to $1,360* per year.
• At $0.20/kWh estimated savings range from $825 to $1,810* per year.
• At $0.30/kWh estimated savings range from $1,240 to $2,710* per year.
Savings may vary based on plumbing size and length, pump model, service factor and other
hydraulic factors. However, as you can see, the savings with IntelliFlo can be dramatic and the
return on investment almost immediate. Over the long life of the pump your savings can reach
thousands of dollars.

Estimate Your Savings Online
Estimate your savings based on the size of your pool, your current pump (or one you’re considering), and local
utility rates at www.pentairpool.com/calculators. Just click on our Pool Pump Energy Savings Calculator.
An important note about utility rates
Posted rates and effective rates are not the same. Your base electric rate may be 10¢ per kilowatt hour (kWh) or
less, but the true effective rate is much higher, since you must also take into account:
1. Added user fees and taxes (vary by state and provider).
2. In some states, rates increase substantially as a consumer uses additional electricity beyond a set baseline.
3. Many assess a surcharge per kWh during the summer when demand is higher.
Safety lock-out feature (password
protected) prevents settings from being
changed by anyone but you.
Display indicator SVRS mode
is activated.

So sophisticated, it’s simple
Programming IntelliFlo VS+SVRS 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. It’s that simple to
optimize water flow for any application. Of course, your pool professional can help
you determine the perfect speed settings. And remember, as you change or add
equipment and features, speed settings can be quickly adjusted to ensure the lowest
amount of energy is consumed.

The Safety Message
IntelliFlo VS+SVRS 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. IntelliFlo VS+SVRS meets
ASME A112.19.17.2002 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.
Other exclusive features include:
•Ability to set minimum and maximum speeds—IntelliFlo will only operate within the ranges you set to help assure safe operation
and long equipment life.
•Unlike other devices, the built-in SVRS protection with IntelliFlo
cannot be turned off.
•Password protected—security features prevent unauthorized personnel from changing the settings.
•For added safety, if the SVRS becomes disabled, the pump will not run.
•No SVRS calibration is required.
Clearly, the efficiency improvements with IntelliFlo are revolutionary. Now
add the layer of swimmer protection provided with an integrated Safety
Vacuum Release System, and you know why IntelliFlo VS+SVRS is the most
valuable and responsible addition you can make to your pool.

More Unique
Performance Advantages
The quietest pool pump on the planet. The exclusive permanent magnet motor
so critical for energy savings is also a totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) design. This
combination, along with running at a slower speed, is responsible for IntelliFlo being the
quietest pump you can install. At typical speeds you can barely hear it operating.
Longer life for faster, greater return on investment. IntelliFlo pumps’ advanced
motor produces far less heat and vibration than a traditional induction motor. This means less
stress and wear on pump components. It also eases the strain on other equipment. IntelliFlo
also features built-in diagnostics that protect it from the most common causes of premature
pump failure—loss of prime, overheating, freezing and voltage irregularities. This results in
dramatically longer life and an even greater return on your investment.
Enhance performance of water quality systems. By running at slower speeds
for longer periods, IntelliFlo VS+SVRS makes other good things happen. It helps reduce algae
formation when water is allowed to rest for long periods. It makes your filter more
effective because it has more time to strip particles from water, plus small particles aren’t
forced through the filter media. Automatic chemical dispensers and chlorinators are
more effective when water keeps moving, too.
As your poolscape changes, so will IntelliFlo. With IntelliFlo VS+SVRS you can add
equipment and features, or change them, without reducing pump performance and
efficiency. Add a solar system or water feature or change your filter. Just push a button
to set the new, optimum speed to operate at the lowest energy use. Your savings are
maintained even as your pool system changes or expands.
Unique ability to manage water features. IntelliFlo also gives you the unique
ability to alter the performance of your water features. Add height to deck jets or
fountains. Increase or decrease the flow to waterfalls or a vanishing edge. No other pump
allows you to adjust these features on demand to change the sights and sounds
of your poolscape with the push of a button.
