Objective

The objective of this project was to decrease energy consumption and reduce noise near the spa area of the pool.  On this project the equipment pad is close to the spa and using the Intelliflo will reduce noise people hear when they are trying to relax.

Goals

  1. Bring the pool into compliance with local code requirments due to be implemented
  2. Reduce energy consumption
  3. Reduce noise in surrounding areas near pump enclosure for patron enjoyment
  4. Lower operating temperatures on pump
  5. Increase durability of pump

Solution

We have installed one of Pentair's new Intelliflo Variable Speed pumps

Results

  1. Reduced noise to less than a whisper near patrons
  2. Lowered operating temperatures 
  3. Priming protection added for prevention of pump overheating
