Pentair IntelliFlo VS3050 & VS + SVRS

The world's most intelligent pumps are a "no brainer." A breakthrough in energy-efficiency and service life, the IntelliFloî pump allows programming for 4 different speeds for different pool, spa or water features applications. By dialing in the minimum speed required for a task, the pump works less and uses less energy. Pump speeds are easily adjusted with the push of an up or down arrow button.

The IntelliFloî VS+SVRS is the revolutionary way to reduce energy costs and meet the desire for the safest pool possible. This "intelligent" pump's 8 speeds can help cut the pool portion of utility bills up to 90% and save you hundreds of dollars per year and thousands of dollars over its life. On the safety front, you install a Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) that senses drain blockage and automatically shuts the pump off to provide an important layer of entrapment protection.

An Eco SelectTM Choice: Standard pool pumps can consume as much energy as all other home appliances combined, often costing residential pool owners more than $1,000 per year! IntelliFlo pumps can typically cut energy use up to 90%, generally saving $620 to $1,360 in utility costs annuallymore where rates are higher than average.*

*Savings based on comparison pump running between 6 and 12 hours per day at the national average of 15 cents/kilowatt hour in a 20,000 gallon pool. Actual savings may vary based on plumbing size and length, pump model, service factor, flow rates, and other hydraulic factors.


  • Typically slashes energy costs up to 30% or more
  • Easy to program and operate
  • Offers ultra-quiet operationjust 7 - 10 decibels or half a human whisper
  • Operates at the minimum speed required for unmatched longevity
  • Compatible with other pool systems, including EasyTouchî, IntelliTouchî and SunTouchî

Two Key Technology Innovations Drive Sensational Energy Savings

There are two reasons why IntelliFlo VS-3050 is able to slash energy use.

  • First, IntelliFlo uses an exclusive permanent magnet motor (used in hybrid cars) in place of a traditional induction motor. Permanent magnet motors are fundamentally more energy eff icient and typically account for base energy savings of 30%.
  • Next, IntelliFlo includes a variable speed capability, along with digital controls and proprietary software that allow custom programming of optimum pump speeds for specif ic tasksf iltering, heating, cleaning, spa jets, waterfalls, etc. For virtually all applications, the optimum speed will be lower than the pre-set, unchangeable speeds of older pumps. Using slower speeds takes advantage of a fundamental pump law: by going slower, power consumption is reduced. In fact, when pump speeds are reduced by half, energy consumption is just one-eighth of what was previously used. The result is additional savingspotentially up to 90% compared to even so-called high eff iciency single-speed, two-speed and multi-speed pumps.

Other Advances Add More Value

Colossal energy savings is enough reason to install an IntelliFlo VS-3050 as fast as possible. But, theres more to this innovation story.

  • The quietest pump on the planet: Thanks to its permanent magnet motor and the fact that it is a totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) design, IntelliFlo is also the quietest pump ever built. At typical speeds you can barely notice its operating.
  • Longer life further increases return on your investment: IntelliFlos permanent magnet motor produces far less heat and vibration than traditional induction motors. This not only results in less stress and wear on pump components, but on other equipment, too. Also, built-in diagnostics protect IntelliFlo VS-3050 from the most common causes of premature pump failureoverheating, freezing, and voltage irregularities. The result is you can expect dramatically longer life and an even greater return on your investment.
  • As your poolscape changes, so will IntelliFlo: With IntelliFlo 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.
  • Unique ability to manage water features: Finally, consider IntelliFlos unique ability to alter the performance of your water features. Want to add height to deck jets or fountains? Want to increase the water flow to waterfalls or a vanishing edge? Just increase or decrease pump speed with the touch of a button to adjust on demand. You manage the sights and sounds of your backyard retreat while driving energy costs down to new lows.

As you can see, IntelliFlo VS-3050 combines a number of technology innovations to slash utility costs and maximize service life while assuring the most tranquil pool environment. When you invest in IntelliFlo today, youll be rewarded for a lifetime.

So sophisticated, its simple. Since the cost to operate your pool pump isnt itemized on your electric bill, youre probably wondering just how much an IntelliFlo could save. Here are realistic estimates when comparing a traditional energy efficient (EE), single-speed pump to IntelliFlo in a 20,000 gallon pool. Savings are calculated using 6 and 12 hours of operation, which represent common run times.

Reduction worth to you?

  • 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.

A Note About Utility Rates

Posted rates and effective rates are not the same thing. Your base posted electricity rate may be 10â per kilowatt hour (kWh) or less. So why are we starting our calculations at 15â per kWh? Weve taken into account the many additional factors that make your effective rate higher:

  1. The stated rate is only for electricity used. It does not include user fees and taxes that vary by state and provider.
  2. In some states, rates increase substantially as a consumer uses additional electricity beyond a set baseline.
  3. Many providers assess a surcharge per kWh during the summer, because demand for electricity is higher.
