    Intelliflo and Suction side cleaner questions

    I am looking at replacing my 1 HP Whisperflo with an IF VF.

    With my current setup, I have to crack the skimmer line about 2/3 closed to run the suction line on a Barracuda G4 cleaner.

    Will the IF make it where I don't have to close the skimmer as much, or not at all?

    I'm hoping I can open the skimmer line more.

    If so, can I set it up to clean with the skimmer partially closed. Then run it low speed to skim, then kick it up on a schedule to clean and not have to change the Jandy valves?

    A lot depends on the head loss for each line and each line's size. It should be ok in most situations as long as you aren't using the SVRS model.
