I've just (2 months ago) bought a house which came with a pool, but without a pump. It's a basic 15K gallons pool, no heating, no spa, no waterfall, etc, with a cartridge filter.
I'm now looking into buying a high efficiency pump and have narrowed down the list to 2 options:
a. Intelliflo VF
b. Intelliflo VS
Since I'm new at this and never owned a pool, i'm not sure which one to go for: the VF seems to be the smarter one out of the two, but the technical guy from Pentair said that if I'm willing to calculate the speeds needed for my pool's different tasks and keep my cartridge clean at all times, then it doesn't make sense to pay the extra $400 for the VF, when the VS could do the same job for me and save just as much energy.
I should also mention that I'm trying to get the most cost eficient one.
Any advice is welcome
