IntelliFlo VS+SVRS Intelligent Variable Speed Pump ® By Pentair Pool Products® The most valuable and responsible addition to any pool A monumental 2 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. energy efficiency, advance in 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. An Eco Select™ Brand Product The Eco Select brand identifies our “greenest” and most efficient equipment choices. These products save energy, conserve water, eliminate noise, or otherwise contribute to a more environmentally responsible equipment system. 3 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. * 4 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. Pump Performance Curves* • • • • • Function buttons to set speeds for separate operations—filtration cycles, spas, cleaners, water features and more. Arrow buttons used to navigate through menus and change settings. Time Out button allows you to interrupt programmed schedules, as needed, for a period you specify— schedules automatically resume after the “time out” period ends. Quick Clean button is used to start filter backwashing or vacuum cycles—at the optimum flow required. Alarm Status light alerts you of conditions that may need attention (messages appear on LED display). *NOTE: The chart above demonstrates performance rates at factory preset speeds of 1100 RPM, 1500 RPM, 2350 RPM and 3110 RPM. However, flow rates can also be custom programmed between the ranges of 1100 RPM and 3450 RPM as indicated by the blue tint. 5 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 A126.96.36.1992 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. 6 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.
