    Pentair Intelliflo VF vs. Intelliflo VS 3050

    I've got this exact configuration. I have two timers, one for the Intelliflo, one for the booster pump sweep. I've set the timer for the one to the Intelliflo to be on all the time, and just use the timer contained in the Intelliflo. I've set the one for the booster pump to be on for a period...
