Water Feature Intelliflo Drive Pump Installation

Objective

The objective of this project was to bring the entry water feature flow rate to an ideal level while reducing the sound homeowners and visitors hear while driving by the feature and reduce operating cost if possible.

Goals

  1. Reduce energy consumption
  2. Reduce noise in surrounding areas near pump enclosure for patron enjoyment
  3. Adjust flow rate to ideal setting for proper operation

Solution

We have installed two variable frequency intelliflo drive pumps to meet the objectives that we have set out in this project. One pump for the filtration pump and spitters and one for large fountains basins.

Results

  1. Reduced noise to less than a whisper near patrons
  2. Decreased energy consumption by 50 percent ($2,601.00 per year @ .15kwh est.)
  3. Adjusted flow rate for best operating efficiency
