There’s one big feature that separates the Pentair Intelliflo vs+svrs pump from the rest of the Intelliflo models. And you can see it right there in the pump’s name (although not so obviously if you don’t know what the SVRS acronym mean)..
This pump is the first swimming pool pump that has a built it safety mechanism that automatically shuts itself off when it detects that there is a blockage in the system.
What Does This Mean To You?
You know all those “horror” stories we hear of drowning accidents caused by swimming pool pumps? Well, the Pentair Intelliflo vs+svrs pump model can HELP in preventing this from happening. Basically what happens is that it provides an entrapment protection*. When it feels a blockage, it shuts off thereby stopping the strong suction.
What makes this feature even better is that you cannot turn this feature off. If it is disabled, the pump will not run. Pretty nifty huh?
And Other Intelliflo Features Covered Too!
It has a safety mechanism. but the story doesn’t stop there. This pool pump as you can see in this Pentair Intelliflo pump comparison of models also have the other features Pentair variable speed pumps are known for:
