I'm looking for some insight on how to best use an Intelliflo pump. I'm not clear how the programmable features on the pump work, for the simple reason that I can't visualize the required plumbing.
My current pool, which I think is around 35k gallons, has 3 skimmers, a waterfall and a Polaris cleaner that is connected to a booster pump. There are 3 pumps in total - a 2HP pump for the filters (far right in photo), a 3HP pump for the waterfall (far left in photo) and the booster pump (black, in the center of the photo). My guess is that they are all original equipment and suck power (I only moved in to the house a few weeks ago, so have yet to see an electrical bill!). Everything is currently automated with a Jandy RS4.
I'd simply like to switch out the filter and waterfall pumps. The latter sounds like it's on it's way out anyway. It would seem that one Intelliflo could power both the filters and the waterfall, possibly even the Polaris cleaner. Is that correct? If so, how would it be plumbed? Would I connect the feed from the waterfall drains to the Intelliflo via an actuated valve? Would the outlet from the pump just connect to the filters (there are two) and then to two actuated valves for the waterfall and the Polaris? Or do I need to stick with 3 pumps?
And any idea why I would need a 3HP pump for a waterfall?
