Intelliflo VS-3050 Pump Installation

Objective:

Replace the existing pump with a more efficient, eco-friendly, and durable pump.

Goals:

  1. Reduce electrical consumption 
  2. Reduce noise on the equipment pad near bedroom window
  3. Reduce total dynamic head (resistance) in the operation of the pump system
  4. Add priming failsafe funtion

Solution:

We removed the current 1.5 HP pump and replaced it with a new Pentair VS-3050 Intelliflo Pump with built in timer controls.

Results:

  1. Lowered operating noise
  2. Decreased Electrical consumption by 85% ($1250.00 a year on this project based on .15Kwh)
  3. Water flow can be adjusted at the push of a button on the pump
  4. Timeout enabled if pump has a problem priming

The video below is taken 3 feet directly above the pump and is meant to demonstrate the low noise factor. There is background noise from the surrounding air conditioning systems located close to the pool equipment. In person the pump is virtually silent.
