Looking for a great variable speed pool pump? Whether you are upgrading your pump or have a new inground pool, the  SuperFlo Variable Speed Pump from Pentair could be the pump for you. It is a direct replacement for the SuperFlo Single-Speed pump and also a superior drop-in replacement for the Hayward Super Pump. Variable speed pumps deliver remarkable energy cost savings and the SuperFlo brings this technology to inground pools at an affordable price.

SuperFlo Specifications

The  SuperFlo excels at providing simple to use digital controls that offer three programmable speeds, plus override capability. The pump can also be controlled remotely using digital inputs. The SuperFlo features a real-time 24-hour clock as well. The Pentair SuperFlo pump is ultra-quiet and has a motor that is totally enclosed and fan-cooled.

Worried about expensive rewiring for a system upgrade? No fretting is needed as the SuperFlo automatically recognizes and adapts to your 115V or 230V 50/60 Hz input power. The electrical connections are very easy to access and aid in a simple installation.

Variable speed pumps reduce energy costs by pumping and moving water at lower speeds. Pool owners can save up to 80% compared to single-speed pumps. This  SuperFlo pump is one of Pentair’s EcoSelect brands which is one of their “greenest” and most energy-efficient choices.

What is a Variable Speed Pump?

Variable speed pool pumps move the pool water through the filter as all pumps do but they accomplish this task both differently and more efficiently. These types of pumps operate with built-in timers and the ability to program your pump to run at different speeds depending on the time of day. Choosing to go with a pump like the SuperFlo saves you time, money, and chemicals usage.

What Are Programmable Pump Speeds?

Pool owners typically want to match their pump’s operation with pool usage. Most pools will get the most use during the daylight hours so a speed that works to collect debris but also doesn’t create a whirlpool would be ideal. At night, the pool is experiencing less use, so a lower operational speed keeps the water moving but is not excessive. There’s also a cleaning cycle preset which increases the pump operation for use when vacuuming the pool. Investing in a variable speed pump like  the SuperFlo allows you to control pump operation to fit the timeline of when you and your family are enjoying the pool.

Variable Speed Pump Rebates & Savings

Many manufacturers including Pentair offer limited-time rebates off the cost of their variable speed pumps. There are also many  state-run groups that offer rebate programs, where you submit proof of purchase and they issue you back a check for a certain percentage of the overall cost. A quick Google search usually determines if your state has a program.

Now is a great time to make the switch to a  SuperFlo Variable Speed Pump from Pentair. Swimming pool pumps are usually one of the highest-ranking consumers of electricity in the entire household. A pump usually accounts for somewhere around 13% of the electrical usage during the season. Find relief from high energy bills while also reducing your carbon footprint. Invest in new variable speed technology with the SuperFlo pump from Pentair.
