    Intelliflo Operating Question

    When my pump is running in scheduled mode, and I override the schedule by pushing a speed button, is there a way to get back to the schedule without shutting the pump down and restarting?

    Welcome to TFP Paul!

    I'm having one of these installed on my equipment when we build so I can't help much now. I'm interested as I will need to know this, but I think someone should be able to answer this for you.

    I called Pentair support today, and posed my question.

    The answer is no!

    Not a real drawback, and, after a week of use, I'm pleased that I replaced my 1.5 HP single speed pump!

    I was concerned about what pump RPM would be needed to draw water up my solar heater, and in my case, 2300 RPM works.

    Pump shows the wattage at that speed is less than 800 vs 2000+ for the old pump!

    Yes there is a way to return to schedule after punching a different speed. I frequently hit the clean button which gives me 2x the scheduled speed. When I am done cleaning the pool, I simply select the speed number that corresponds to what the schedule would be and the pump program takes over
