    Pentair Superflo VS - setting up to use heater and salt system

    I just replaced my old pump with a Pentair Superflo VS. I really like the pump. Is there a manual override that can stay in that mode until I turn it off so that I can run the heater and superchlorinate the pool? I'd like to run the pump at Program #3, which in my case is 2200 rpm.

    Sorry you have not gotten a response.

    I do not know the answer to your question. I know you can manually turn on speed 3 but I do not know how long it will stay on. Have you checked the manual?

    My intelliflo is controlled by my Solartouch but I am able to select a different speed from the pump control panel when the pump is not under active control, which is solar on. I can't change speed settings or rpm from the pump but I can change it from speed 1 to speed 3 or 4 that I use for brushing the pool bottom and it stays there as long as the Solartouch is idle. As soon as the Solartouch engages again it changes the pump speed.

    What happens when you push speed 3? I would think it would override the program until the next start/stop time. Altough, if I change speed when my Solartouch has the pump it changes back within seconds.

    One option would be to use the optional wiring kit Pentair P/N 353129Z. This kit allows you to take 5 Vdc out of the Superflo through a relay or switch and then back into the Superflo on one of four inputs. Each input selects a different speed. These external inputs override the program and will run the pump at the selected speed until removed. Check out the specifics in your manual under "External Digital Control.

    Let me know if you need any additional info and I'll see what I can find.
