    Pentair IntelliFlo differences (VF,XF, original)

    What are the differences between the original, VF and XF IntelliFlo variable speed pumps?

    The VS and VF both came along at the same time, so I wouldn't call the VS the original. These days the only significant difference between the VS and VF is that the VF has a built in flow meter, which allows it to be programmed to maintain a specific flow rate. Long ago the VS didn't have a timer, but it got a timer a few years ago. The XF is optimized for very high flow rates and 3" plumbing.

    I recommend the VS over the VF. The flow meter, while entertaining, is not required and not worth the extra expense. I would only get the XF if you routinely require flow rates over 100 GPM.

    Thank you. I wish Pentair's website had a compare tool.
