Example of Variable Speed Settings
Generally, I run my equipment at 1700 RPMs for 10 hours. I run this with the saltwater generator set at 50% for 10 hours. In my case, 1700 RPM’s is the minimum I can do to reliably activate the saltwater generator and filter the pool.
Beside this, how long should I run my Pentair Intelliflo pump?
Just so, how do I program my Pentair VSF pump?
How do I reset my Pentair IntelliFlo VSF pump?
A program for a typical pool might look like this: Suction cleaner – run at 2400 for 2 hours; Filtration – run at 1200 RPM for 16 hours; Spa run at 3450 for 2 hours or on demand. Most pumps have manual overrides to change settings temporarily.
To reset the pump to the factory default settings:
- Ensure that the pump is powered on and the green power LED is on.
- Press the Stop button to stop the pump.
- Press and hold all of the four Speed buttons simultaneously for four seconds. Power off the drive.
Run the pump for 8 hours, every 24 hours. You can also pause in between; there is no need to run it continuously. Ideally, after you shock the pool, be sure to run the pump at night and during non-peak hours, to save on your energy bills.
The size of your pool, the efficiency of your pump and filter, and how dirty your pool is are just some of the factors you need to consider. Nevertheless, most pool cleaning professionals would advise against running a pool pump for more than 8 hours a day.
