INSTALLERS, POOL OPERATORS AND OWNERS MUST READ THESE
WARNINGS AND ALL INSTRUCTIONS IN THE OWNER’S MANUAL
BEFORE USING THIS PUMP. THESE WARNINGS AND THE OWNER’S
MANUAL MUST BE LEFT WITH THE POOL OWNER.
SUCTION ENTRAPMENT HAZARD: STAY OFF
THE MAIN DRAIN AND AWAY FROM ALL SUCTION
OUTLETS!
Do not permit children to use this product.
F
Risk of Electrical Shock. Connect only to a branch
circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter
(GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that the circuit
is protected by a GFCI.
This unit must be connected only to a supply circuit
that is protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter
(GFCI). Such a GFCI should be provided by the installer and should
be tested on a routine basis. To test the GFCI, push the test button.
The GFCI should interrupt power. Push the reset button. Power should
be restored. If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, the GFCI is
defective. If the GFCI interrupts power to the pump without the test
button being pushed, a ground current is flowing, indicating the
possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this pump. Disconnect the
pump and have the problem corrected by a qualified service
representative before using.
This pump is for use with permanent swimming
pools and may also be used with hot tubs and spas
if so marked. Do not use with storable pools. A permanently-installed
pool is constructed in or on the ground or in a building such that it cannot
be readily disassembled for storage. A storable pool is constructed so
that it is capable of being readily disassembled for storage and
reassembled to its original integrity.

THIS PUMP PRODUCES HIGH LEVELS OF SUCTION AND CREATES
A STRONG VACUUM AT THE MAIN DRAIN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE
BODY OF WATER. THIS SUCTION IS SO STRONG THAT IT CAN TRAP
ADULTS OR CHILDREN UNDER WATER IF THEY COME IN CLOSE
PROXIMITY TO A DRAIN OR A LOOSE OR BROKEN DRAIN COVER
OR GRATE.
THE USE OF UNAPPROVED COVERS OR ALLOWING USE OF THE
POOL OR SPA WHEN COVERS ARE MISSING, CRACKED OR BROKEN
CAN RESULT IN BODY OR LIMB ENTRAPMENT, HAIR ENTANGLEMENT, BODY ENTRAPMENT, EVISCERATION AND/OR DEATH. The suction at a drain or outlet can cause:
Limb Entrapment: When a limb is sucked or inserted into an opening
resulting in a mechanical bind or swelling. This hazard is present when
a drain cover is missing, broken, loose, cracked or not properly secured.
Hair Entanglement: When the hair tangles or knots in the drain cover,
trapping the swimmer underwater. This hazard is present when the flow
rating of the cover is too small for the pump or pumps.
Body Entrapment: When a portion of the body is held against the drain
cover trapping the swimmer underwater. This hazard is present when the
drain cover is missing, broken or the cover flow rating is not high enough
for the pump or pumps.
Evisceration/Disembowelment: When a person sits on an open pool
(particularly a child wading pool) or spa outlet and suction is applied directly
to the intestines, causing severe intestinal damage. This hazard is present
when the drain cover is missing, loose, cracked, or not properly secured.
IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump Installation and User’s Guide
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For Installation of Electrical Controls at Equipment Pad
(ON/OFF Switches, Timers and Automation Load Center)
iii
Install all electrical controls at equipment pad, such as on/off
switches, timers, and control systems, etc. to allow the
operation (startup, shut-down, or servicing) of any pump or
filter so the user does not place any portion of his/her body
over or near the pump strainer lid, filter lid or valve closures.
This installation should allow the user enough space to stand
clear of the filter and pump during system start-up, shut down
or servicing of the system filter.
IMPORTANT PUMP WARNING AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Mechanical Entrapment: When jewelry, swimsuit, hair decorations,
finger, toe or knuckle is caught in an opening of an outlet or drain cover.
This hazard is present when the drain cover is missing, broken, loose,
cracked, or not properly secured.
NOTE: ALL SUCTION PLUMBING MUST BE INSTALLED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE LATEST NATIONAL AND LOCAL CODES,
STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES.
TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF INJURY DUE TO
SUCTION ENTRAPMENT HAZARD:
• A properly installed and secured ANSI/ASME A112.19.8 approved
anti-entrapment suction cover must be used for each drain.
• Each suction cover must be installed at least three (3’) feet apart,
as measured from the nearest point to nearest point.
• Regularly inspect all covers for cracks, damage and advanced
weathering.
• If a cover becomes loose, cracked, damaged, broken or is missing,
replace with an appropriate certified cover.
• Replace drain covers as necessary. Drain covers deteriorate over
time due to exposure to sunlight and weather.
• Avoid getting hair, limbs or body in close proximity to any suction
cover, pool drain or outlet.
• Disable suction outlets or reconfigure into return inlets.
A clearly labeled emergency shut-off switch for the
pump must be in an easily accessible, obvious place.
Make sure users know where it is and how to use it in case of emergency.
The Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) Pool and Spa Safety Act creates
new requirements for owners and operators of commercial swimming
pools and spas.
Commercial pools or spas constructed on or after December 19, 2008,
shall utilize:
(A) A multiple main drain system without isolation capability with suction
outlet covers that meet ASME/ANSI A112.19.8a Suction Fittings for
Use in Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, Spas, and Hot Tubs and either:
(i) A safety vacuum release system (SVRS) meeting ASME/ANSI
A112.19.17 Manufactured Safety Vacuum Release systems (SVRS)

IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump Installation and User’s Guide
HAZARDOUS PRESSURE: STAND CLEAR OF
PUMP AND FILTER DURING START UP
Circulation systems operate under high pressure.
When any part of the circulating system (i.e.
locking ring, pump, filter, valves, etc.) is serviced,
air can enter the system and become pressurized.
Pressurized air can cause the pump housing cover filter lid and valves
to violently separate which can result in severe personal injury or death.
Filter tank lid and strainer cover must be properly secured to prevent
violent separation. Stand clear of all circulation system equipment when
turning on or starting up pump.
Before servicing equipment, make note of the filter pressure. Be sure
that all controls are set to ensure the system cannot inadvertently start
during service. Turn off all power to the pump. IMPORTANT: Place filter
manual air relief valve in the open position and wait for all pressure
in the system to be relieved.
Before starting the system, fully open the manual air relief valve and place
all system valves in the “open” position to allow water to flow freely from the
tank and back to the tank. Stand clear of all equipment and start the pump.
IMPORTANT: Do not close filter manual air relief valve until all
pressure has been discharged from the valve and a steady stream
of water appears. Observe filter pressure gauge and be sure it is not
higher than the pre-service condition.
General Installation Information
• All work must be performed by a qualified service professional, and
must conform to all national, state, and local codes.
• Install to provide drainage of compartment for electrical components.
• These instructions contain information for a variety of pump models
and therefore some instructions may not apply to a specific model. All
models are intended for use in swimming pool applications. The pump
will function correctly only if it is properly sized to the specific application
and properly installed.
Pumps improperly sized or installed or used in
applications other than for which the pump was
intended can result in severe personal injury or death. These risks may
include but not be limited to electric shock, fire, flooding, suction
entrapment or severe injury or property damage caused by a structural
failure of the pump or other system component.
The pump can produce high levels of suction within
the suction side of the plumbing system. These high
levels of suction can pose a risk if a person comes within the close
proximity of the suction openings. A person can be seriously injured by
this high level of vacuum or may become trapped and drown. It is
absolutely critical that the suction plumbing be installed in accordance
with the latest national and local codes for swimming pools.

Pump Operating Modes
The IntelliFlo® Variable Speed pump can be programmed three ways:
1. Manual Operation: Speed buttons 1-4 can be programmed for Manual operation. This
means the speed button is pressed and then the start button and the pump runs a programmed
speed. Speeds 5-8 cannot be programmed for Manual operation because there are no buttons
associated with them.
To operate the pump in Manual Mode, press one of the four speed buttons, and press the
Start/Stop button to run the assigned speed for that button. When the pump is running a
Manual Speed Setting (speed 1, 2, 3 or 4 button pressed manually) and a scheduled speed is
set to run, the scheduled speed will take priority regardless of speed (RPM) assigned to each
button. When the Scheduled Speed’s time is over, it will not revert back to the manually
pressed speed. If the pump is running a schedule and a speed button is pressed manually, the
pump will run the manually selected speed until the next scheduled speed program.
2. Egg Timer (Duration): Speeds 1-4 can be programmed to run for a duration of time once
pressed. This means that the Speed button is pressed and then the start button and the pump
runs a programmed speed and the speed will turn off at the end of a preprogrammed amount
of time. Speeds 5-8 have no direct pump speed buttons and therefore cannot be programmed
with an Egg-Timer.
3. Schedule: The speed button can be programmed to turn on and off at a certain time. The
LED above the Start/Stop button must be lit for the pump to run schedules. When a speed is
set to run in Schedule mode it can still be operated manually. When a speed is programmed
to run 23 hours and 59 minutes per day it will not turn off. For example, for the pump to run
24 hours per day, program the pump to start at 8:00 AM and stop at 7:59 AM.
Programming the Pump
When the pump is running, a manual speed and password time out is activated (see page 12) the pump
can be turned off but it cannot be turned back on. Pressing the Start/Stop button places it in the Running
Schedule mode. Therefore, it will only run Speeds that are Scheduled to come on at their scheduled
Start Time.

IntelliFlo® Pump Menus
The IntelliFlo® pump menu descriptions are as follows:
Settings: Pump Address
The IntelliFlo® pump address needs to be changed when there is more than one IntelliFlo® pump on
an automation system. This allows the automation system to know which pump to send a command.
The “Pump Address” setting is used when the IntelliFlo® pump is connected via the RS-485 COM port
to an IntelliTouch®, EasyTouch®, SunTouch® or IntelliComm® system. The default pump address is
#1. When connected to EasyTouch®, SunTouch® or IntelliComm® the pump only communicates with
address #1. The pump address can be set from 1-16. However, IntelliTouch® can communicate to four
(1-4) IntelliFlo® pumps.
Note: IntelliFlo® pumps cannot be connected in series with other pumps.

Priming
The default setting for Priming is ENABLED. Enabling this feature allows the pump to use its “Flow
Technology” to be sure the pump is primed for startup. This feature will not override the “Max Speed”
setting. The priming feature ramps the pump to 1800 RPM and pauses for three (3) seconds. If there is
sufficient water flow in the pump basket, the pump will go out of priming mode and run its commanded
speed. If the flow in the pump basket is not sufficient, the pump will ramp to the “Max Speed” setting
and stay there for the priming delay time, which is defaulted at 20 seconds. If there is sufficient water
flow in the pump basket at this time, it will go out of priming mode and ramp to the commanded speed.
If there is still insufficient flow in the pump basket, the pump will try to prime at the “Maximum Speed”
for the amount of time set up in the “Maximum Priming Time” menu.
Maximum Priming Time: The Maximum Priming Time can be set from 1 minute to 30 minutes. The
default setting is 11 minutes. This is the maximum amount of time the pump will try to prime before
giving an error. However if the pump does not see a sufficient amount of water in the pump basket this
can cause the pump to report a Priming Dry Alarm within seconds of the beginning of the priming cycle.
Priming Dry Alarm: An insufficient amount of water in the basket during priming will cause the
pump to report a Priming Dry Alarm. The basket should be filled with water and the pump restarted
when this alarm occurs.
Note: When a Priming Dry Alarm takes place it will try to restart after 10 minutes.
Primed Sensitivity: The primed sensitivity can be set from 1% to 100%. The factory default setting
is 1% meaning that the pump is at its most sensitive setting in regards to determining if the pump has
attained a prime or not. Increasing this number will decrease the amount of flow needed for the pump
to sense that it is primed. Making this number too high could cause the pump to think it has attained
a prime and evacuated the air from the system when it has not. If the system is such, that the pump
has trouble coming out of the priming mode and it is evident that the pump basket is full of water and
flowing then the Primed Sensitivity number can be increased.
Priming Delay: The priming delay can be set from 1 second to 10 minutes. The default setting is 20
seconds. This means the pump will ramp to 1800 RPM and stay there for three (3) seconds which it
will always do in the hard Priming Mode. If there is sufficient flow in the pump basket, the pump will
then go out of priming mode and ramp to its commanded speed. If there is insufficient water flow in
the pump basket, the pump will ramp to the Max Speed Setting and stay there for the default time of
20 seconds. It may be necessary to increase the prime delay to allow the system to stabilize before the
pump goes into running mode. If the pump errors out immediately after priming, then increasing the
Priming Delay time may correct the issue.
When the pump is connected to an automation system and the “Maximum Prime Time” feature is
enabled, it will remain active.

Disable Priming Feature on the Pump
When the IntelliFlo® pump is connected to an automation control system, (IntelliTouch, EasyTouch
or SunTouch), the priming feature on the pump cannot be disabled by the external automation control
system only. If priming is enabled on start-up, the IntelliFlo® responds to its internal settings before
responding to commands from an automation control system. If the IntelliFlo® pump is connected to
an automation control system and priming is not desired, disable the priming feature on both the pump
and the automation control system.
To disable priming with an automation control system:
1. Disable the priming feature on the automation control system at the load center or using an
IntelliTouch or EasyTouch remote. (Refer to the automation control system user’s guide for

Priming the pump for the first time, or after service
The IntelliFlo® must be primed before starting the pump for the first time. To prime a pump means
filling the pump and suction pipe with water. This process evacuates the air from all the suction lines
and the pump. It may take several minutes to prime depending on the depth of water, pipe size and
length. It is easier to prime a pump if you allow all the air to escape from the pump and pipes. The
water cannot enter unless the air can escape. Pumps do not hold prime, the pool piping system has
that task.
CAUTION - To avoid permanent damage to the IntelliFlo® pump, before starting the pump, fill the IntelliFlo®
housing strainer with water so that the pump will prime correctly. If there is no water in the strainer the
pump will not prime.
• Do not allow the pump to run dry. Running the pump dry may damage the seals, causing leakage
and flooding.
• Do not add chemicals to the system directly in front of pump suction. Adding undiluted chemicals
may damage the pump and will void the warranty.
• Open gate valves before starting system.
• Be sure to release all air from filter and piping system.
• The IntelliFlo® pump is a variable speed pump. Typically the lower speeds are used for filtration and
heating. The higher speeds can be used for spa jets, water features, and priming.
CAUTION - Before starting this procedure, first read the following:

WARNING - If the pump is being pressure tested, release all pressure before removing trap cover. Do not block the
pump suction while the pump is running. If a body part blocks the pump suction it may cause severe or
fatal injury. Small children using the pool must ALWAYS have close adult supervision.
WARNING - FIRE and BURN HAZARD - The pump motor may run at a high temperatures. To reduce the risk of
fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns
when handling the motor, shut off the motor and allow it to cool for 20 minutes before trying to work on
it. The IntelliFlo® provides an automatic internal cutoff switch to protect the motor from heat damage
during operation.

NOTICE: If you replace the o-ring with a non-lubricated o-ring, you may need to apply a silicone
based lubricant.
• Clean and inspect o-ring; reinstall on trap cover.
• Replace trap cover on trap; turn clockwise to tighten cover.
Tighten the pump lid by hand only (no wrenches).
Priming time will depend on vertical length of suction lift and horizontal length of suction piping. If
pump does not prime, be sure that all valves are open, suction pipe end is under water, pump suction
is below water level, and that there are no leaks in suction pipe.

External Control with IntelliComm® Communication Center
The IntelliFlo® pump can be remotely controlled by the Pentair Water Pool and Spa IntelliComm
Communication Center using the RS-485 communications cable. The IntelliComm provides four pairs
of input terminal connections. These inputs are actuated by either 15 - 240 VAC or 15 - 100 VDC.
Using the device’s inputs, the programmed IntelliFlo® pump speeds can be controlled.
Note: For the IntelliFlo® pump to accept commands from IntelliComm, the pump must be in
the “Running Schedules” mode (LED above the Start/Stop button lit).
If more than one input is active the highest number will be communicated to the IntelliFlo® pump.
The IntelliComm will always communicate to pump using ADDRESS #1.
Program number priority is as follows: Example: If programs 1 and 2 are activated, program 2
will run, regardless of the assigned speed (RPM). The higher program number (2 being higher) will
always take priority. The following table shows the wiring terminal descriptions for IntelliComm.

Connecting IntelliFlo® to EasyTouch® and IntelliTouch® System
The IntelliFlo® pump can be controlled by an EasyTouch or IntelliTouch automation system via the
RS-485 communication cable. In this configuration, EasyTouch/IntelliTouch starts, stops and controls
the speed of the IntelliFlo® pump. When the EasyTouch/IntelliTouch does this, it rewrites the IntelliFlo®
pump memory, which can take several seconds. This causes a delay after a command is given on the
EasyTouch/IntelliTouch control panel until the IntelliFlo® pump physically responds.
The IntelliFlo® pump control panel is disabled when communicating with the EasyTouch/IntelliTouch
system. Note that EasyTouch/IntelliTouch will not start communicating with the IntelliFlo® pump until
the pump is assigned to a circuit. The IntelliFlo® pump default pump address is one which is the only
address that works with EasyTouch. See page 9 for details about how to check the pump address and
change if necessary. For more information, refer to the EasyTouch User’s Guide (P/N 520584).

The following information describes how to service and maintain the IntelliFlo® Variable Speed pump.
Pump Strainer Basket
The strainer, sometimes referred to as the “Hair and Lint Pot,” is in front of the of the pump. Inside
there is a basket which must be kept clean of leaves and debris at all times. View the basket through
the top see through lid to inspect for leaves and debris.
Regardless of the length of time between filter cleaning, it is most important to visually inspect the
hair and lint pot basket at least once a week. A dirty basket will reduce the efficiency of the filter and
possibly the heater.
WARNING — DO NOT open the strainer pot if pump fails to prime or if pump has been operating without water
in the strainer pot. Pumps operated in these circumstances may experience a build up of vapor
pressure and may contain scalding hot water. Opening the pump may cause serious personal
injury. In order to avoid the possibility of personal injury, make sure the suction and discharge
valves are open and that the strainer pot is cool to the touch, then open with extreme caution.
CAUTION — To prevent damage to the pump and filter and for proper operation of the system, clean pump
strainer and skimmer baskets regularly.

IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump Installation and User’s Guide
29
Winterizing
To protect the IntelliFlo® pump electronics from damage due to freezing conditions, the pump will
switch itself on to generate internal heat when the air temperature drops below 4.4° C (40° F). The
IntelliFlo® pump “Anti Freeze” feature is not intended to protect the system plumbing from freezing.
The Anti Freeze temperature feature is adjustable and can be changed from 4.4° - 10° C (40° - 50° F).
See page 10 for more information.
1. If the air temperature drops below 4.4° C (40° F) the water in the pump can freeze and cause
damage. Freeze damage is not warrantable.
2. To prevent freeze damage follow the procedures listed below.
• Shut off electrical power for the pump at the circuit breaker.
• Drain the water out of the pump by removing the two thumb-twist drain plugs located at the
bottom of the volute. Store the plugs in the pump basket.
• Cover the motor to protect it from severe rain, snow and ice.
• Do not wrap the motor in plastic. It will cause condensation and rust on the inside of the
motor.
Note: In mild climate areas, when temporary freezing conditions may occur, run your filtering
equipment all night to prevent freezing.
Priming the pump after service
Before a system start-up, the pump and system must be manually primed. Be sure to reopen valves
before operating. To prime IntelliFlo® pump, the strainer pot must be filled with water.
CAUTION — DO NOT run the pump dry. If the pump is run dry, the mechanical seal will be damaged and the
pump will start leaking. If this occurs, the damaged seal must be replaced. ALWAYS maintain
proper water level in your pool. Continued operation in this manner could cause a loss of
pressure, resulting in damage to the pump case, impeller and seal.
For instructions about how to prime the IntelliFlo® pump, refer to “Priming the pump for the first
time or after service” on page 21 .

Installation and Removal
The following information describes how to install the IntelliFlo® pump.
Installing the IntelliFlo® Pump
Only a qualified service person should install the IntelliFlo® pump. Refer to “Important Warning And
Safety Instructions” on pages iii to vii for additional installation guidance and safety information.
IntelliFlo® Pump Kit Contents
IntelliFlo® Variable Speed pump, FWC cover, gasket, screws, communication cable, and the
Installation and User’s Guide (this manual).
Location
1. Install the pump as close to the pool or spa as possible. To reduce friction loss and improve efficiency,
use short and direct suction and piping returns.
2. Install a minimum of 5 feet (1.52 meters) from the inside wall of the pool and spa. Canadian installations
require a minimum of 9.8 feet (3 meters) from pool water.
3. Install the pump a minimum of 3 feet (0.9 meters) from the heater outlet.
4. Do not install the pump more than 10 feet (3 meters) above the water level or 3 feet (0.91 meters)
below water level.
5. Install the pump in a sheltered well ventilated location protected from excessive moisture, (i.e., rain,
sprinklers, etc.).
6. For hot tubs and spas, do not install within an outer enclosure or beneath the skirt of a hot tub or spa.
7. Install the pump with a rear clearance of at least 3 inches (76.2 mm) so that the motor can be removed
easily for maintenance and repair.
Piping
•
•
•
For improved pool plumbing, it is recommended to use a larger pipe size. When installing the inlet
and outlet fittings (male adaptors), use thread sealant.
Do not install 90° elbows directly into pump inlet or outlet. A valve, elbow or tee installed in the
suction line should be no closer to the front of the pump than five times the suction line
pipe diameter (i.e., 2 inch (5.1 cm) pipe requires a 10 inch (254 mm) straight run in front of the
suction inlet of the pump). This will help the pump prime faster and last longer.
Flooded suction systems should have gate valves installed on suction and discharge pipes for
maintenance, however, the suction gate valve should be no closer than five times the suction pipe
diameter as described above.
Electrical
•
•
A means for disconnection must be incorporated in the fixed wiring in accordance with the
wiring rules.
The pump is to be supplied through a residual current device (RCD) having a rated residual
operating current not exceeding 30mA.
IntelliFlo® Variable Speed Pump Installation and User’s Guide
31
Wiring the IntelliFlo® Pump
To connect the IntelliFlo® pump to an AC power source:
1. Be sure all electrical breakers and switches are turned off before wiring motor.
2. Be sure that the wiring voltage is 230 VAC ± 10%.
3. Use #12 AWG for wire runs up to 100 feet (30.5 meters) and #10 AWG for lengths longer than
100 feet (30.5 meters). When in doubt use a heavier gauge (larger diameter) wire. Heavier gauge
will allow the motor to run cooler and more efficient.
4. Be sure all electrical connections are clean and tight.
5. Cut the wires to the appropriate length so they do not overlap or touch when connected.
6. Permanently ground the motor using the green ground wire, as shown below. Use the correct
wire size and type specified by National Electrical Code. Be sure the ground wire is connected to
an electrical service ground.
7. Bond the motor to the pool structure in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Use a solid
copper bonding conductor not smaller than 8 AWG. Run a wire from the external bonding lug to the
pool bonding structure, as shown below.
8. Connect the wire from the accessible bonding lug on the motor to all metal parts of the swimming
pool, spa, or hot tub structure and to all electrical equipment, metal conduit, and metal piping within
5 feet of the inside walls of the swimming pool, spa, or hot tub. For Canada, a 6 AWG or larger solid
copper bonding conductor is required.
9. The pump should be permanently connected to either a circuit breaker, 2-pole timer or 2-pole
relay. If AC power is supplied by a GFCI circuit breaker, use a dedicated circuit breaker that has no
other electrical loads.
10. IMPORTANT: When connecting the pump to an automation system (IntelliTouch, EasyTouch,
SunTouch and IntelliComm), continuous power must be supplied to the pump by connecting it
directly to the circuit breaker. When using an automation system, be sure that no other lights
or appliances are on the same circuit.
NOTE: When the IntelliFlo® is started and stopped by removing power with a relay or timer, a two-pole
device should be used to apply and remove power to both POWER LINE TERMINALS.
