    Intelliflow pump shuts off 15 minutes into spa mode

    Greetings, joined last year but this is first post. Since replacing primary pump (whisperflow 2hp) with intelliflow, pump consistently shuts off about 15 minutes into cycle when in spa mode with heater running. This does not appear to be temperature triggered as it occurs as throughout temp range as spa heats to desired setting. Pump is wired and controlled by aqua logic PS-8 same as whisperflow, which never presented this issue. Should pump be wired differently since it is variable speed? Both PS-8 and Raypak also have updated PCB's installed. This is getting old as I currently run to control panel every 15 minutes to turn pump back on when using spa.

    Which model of intelliflo do you have, is it an SVRS model with? If so the SVRS may be doing a false safety trip with the flow pressures change.

    I have the same pump. Sometimes I think it's too smart. If the Aqua Logic doesn't connect to the serial control on the pump, the LCD on the pump will have the error message on it. If the serial control is connected I believe the LCD shows "Display Off". The error messages are on page 49 of the manual.

    Good luck,
    Steve

    I have Intelliflow model #011018 (non-svrs). I must also mention that in "pool" mode, pump and heater run continuously without problem.
