Envision this: it’s a beautiful day, and you and the family are out relaxing by the pool. You’ve spent a lot of time, money, and energy outfitting the perfect pool area, complete with water features, a filtration system, and high-quality accessories. So, you’d probably be less than pleased to see your filtration system, water features and spa jets suddenly stop working due to a failed pool pump. This happens more often than pool owners anticipate, which almost always leads them to shop for the latest and greatest pool pump.


So what should you look for when shopping for the best pool pump? Aren’t all pumps basically the same? After all, they just move water from one place to another, right? Not quite.

The pool pumps of yesterday are inefficient, unreliable, and downright bad for the overall pool system. A modern pool pump like the IntelliFlo 2 VST Pump is a great example of how far pool pumps have come. By choosing and installing an IntelliFlo 2 VST pump, you’re addressing the three most important features of a pool pump: energy efficiency, reliability, and ease of use. The engineers and technicians at Pentair have developed a pump that literally breaks records when compared with pool pumps that were available just 10 years ago. The craftsmanship, materials and customer-focused design result in a product that is intuitive, inexpensive to operate, and much more reliable than prior models.


Probably the most attractive feature of these newer pumps is their remarkably low cost to operate. In fact, over a 5 year period, IntelliFlo 2 VST pump owners will save up to $13,500 on energy costs alone! That’s not pocket change.


Want to be able to expand on your pool system at a later date? Say, add some water features or an array of spa jets when you have the time and budget? No problem! The IntelliFlo 2 VST pumps can be scaled to work with multiple demands, sending water to where it is needed, at a pressure and flow rate that is ideal. What’s more, the IntelliFlo 2 VST pump is capable of being monitored and controlled remotely, reducing the number of trips you have to take out to the pump shed. That translates into more time spent soaking up rays in the pool!
