Pentair has made variable speed pumps easier to use, more useful in different kinds of pools and more energy efficient than ever.

Pentair variable speed pumps give you more than exceptional energy efficiency. They are ultra quiet, especially when running at low speeds, and have built-in diagnostics. They also improve the performance of other pool equipment on your pool pad. Because variable speed technology puts less stress on your equipment you can extend its operating life.

Variable speed pumps also connect easily to automation systems, giving you greater convenience for control right from your smart device. This makes it possible to manage your pool pump and your entire pool from anywhere in the world.

If you’re looking to upgrade to a Pentair variable speed pump or replace your older, single- or two-speed pump, here are two of Pentair’s most innovative pool pumps:

IntelliFlo® VSF Variable Speed and Flow Pump: The first pump of its kind, the IntelliFlo VSF pump allows precise control of flow by automatically adjusting the pump’s speed to maintain a specific flow rate. This allows your pool equipment perform exactly as it’s meant to, delivering cleaner, healthier pool water.

  • WEF 6.1 THP 3.95

SuperFlo® VST Variable Speed Pump: Designed for practical pool owners, the SuperFlo VST pump features easy-to-read, intuitive digital control pad and is an excellent choice for new and standard pool pump replacements up to a 1.5-HP.

  • 115 v: WEF 7.3 THP 2.2
  • 230 v: WEF 6.6 THP 2.2

In addition to improving your pool pad, these pumps also improve the environment. The IntelliFlo VSF and SuperFlo VST pumps are ENERGY STAR® certified, which means they meet strict energy-efficiency criteria set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. These pumps save money, reduce energy use and protect the environment. Learn more about our commitment to ENERGY STAR and the environment.

Additionally, the IntelliFlo VSF and SuperFlo VST pumps hold the Pentair TradeGrade designation. What does that mean for you? The TradeGrade designation offers you peace of mind knowing your pool is safe to enjoy when your new pool pump has been properly sized and installed by a pool professional, keeping everyone who enjoys your pool safe.
