I've inherited an older 27K gallon in-ground pool with a brine tank chlorine generator ("Pool Perfector").
I bought an Intelliflo VF pump to replace the older pentair pump that its using now, with the goal of drastically reducing the electrical costs of running the pool.
However, after I bought the pump (of course!), it dawned on me that the chlorine generator relies on a "venturi feeder" to pull the chlorine brine/gas from the brine tank to the water returning to the pool. In essence, it's a reducing fitting in the return line with a drip line from the tank.
As I understand it, the point of pumps like the Intelliflo VF is to move water at a lower pressure and lower velocity, thus using less electricity.
Anyone have any thoughts on whether the VF will work with the venturi feeder? And, since there is a pretty big reduction in flow there which I assume will increase water pressure behind it, will that negate the value of the pump?
