Energy Efficient Pool Equipment
Standard pool pumps can consume as much energy as all other home appliances combined—often costing more than $1,000 per year!
Prins Pools has chosen to carry the Intelliflo pump product manufactured by Pentair for the following reasons: Exclusive, Advanced Motor Technology Typically Provides Base Savings of 30%
IntelliFlo and IntelliPro pumps use an exclusive permanent magnet motor (used in hybrid cars) in place of a traditional induction motor. Permanent magnet motors are fundamentally more energy efficient and provide a typical “base energy savings” of 30%.
The Quietest Pumps Ever Built
The exclusive permanent magnet motor that is so critical for energy savings is also a totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) design. This combination, along with slower operating speeds, is responsible for IntelliPro and IntelliFlo pumps being the quietest pumps you can install. At typical speeds you can barely hear them operating.
Onboard Intelligence with Variable Drive Can Deliver Additional Savings Up to 90%
Variable speed capability, digital controls, and proprietary software that allow custom programming of optimum pump speeds for specific tasks—filtering, heating, cleaning, spa jets, waterfalls, etc. The result is additional energy savings…up to 90% compared to even so-called high efficiency, single-speed, two-speed and multi-speed pumps that cannot be adjusted.
For virtually all applications, the optimum speed will be lower than the preset, unchangeable speeds of older pumps. Using slower speeds takes advantage of a fundamental pump law: slower is far more efficient. In fact, when pump speeds are reduced by half, energy consumption is just one-eighth of what was previously used.
Longer Trouble-Free Service Life than Conventional Pumps
Advanced motor produces far less heat and vibration than traditional induction motors for dramatically longer equipment life. TEFC design protects against all threats posed by an outdoor environment. Features built-in diagnostics that detect and correct conditions that cause premature failure, thereby protecting against overheating, freezing and voltage irregularities. IntelliFlo VF also detects loss of prime.
