    Pentagram Intelliflo pump not working

    May have had a lightening strike and now pump won't work. It has green light but LCD screen is blank. We had a storm which tripped the breaker and now we can't get it to start up. Warranty ran out 5 months ago.
    We have a rectangle in ground pool with spa and waterfall that is three and a half years old. Home was built with new pool in Bradenton Florida. It has a Pentair Intelliflo variable speed pump with East Touch 4 pool and spa control system. I believe it is a concrete pool with a cartridge filter.

    Welcome to TFP

    Do you have a surge protector on the pump line or the whole house one, like this Eaton 109420 Ultra Surge Protection 3Rd Edition: Electronics

    the VS pumps do not like lightning, brownouts, backfieds.. it is a computer on a pump and will die if not protected.. There is nothing in the manual about no display

    You can replace the computer (at 6 to 700) that runs the pump and sometimes that will fix it but most of the time its cheaper to buy a whole new pump
    Pentair IntelliFlo VS 3050 VS + SVRS Parts -

    so 100 more you can get a brand new one.. : Pentair 011018 IntelliFlo Variable Speed High Performance Pool Pump, 3 Horsepower, 230 Volt, 1 Phase - Energy Star Certified : Swimming Pool Water Pumps : Patio, Lawn Garden

    I am sorry, I know this is not the info you were looking for.. could you take the pump in and have someone look at it.. there is one person here that has changed out the computer...

    I hope this helps

    The Intelliflo 011018 or 011055 models are preferred over the SVRS models. That is a vacuum release made to retrofit into older single main drain pools for safety and people report getting false errors on the suction. If you have a single drain cover it is better to change the drain cover to a safety cover and use a standard pump.
