    Help with Pentair VSF settings

    I am new and trying to get a schedule set up on my pump. I just added salt this morning after the 30 day wait, and I am trying to get the schedule set up on the pump. I do not have easytouch system (yet), and I am just wondering if there is a way to set the pump to run at 1200rpm, and then go up to maybe 2200rpm for a few hours to help skim, and then return to 1200rpm. Messing with it seems like I can only make one setpoint to come on at 1 speed for 1 given time setting and then turn off. Any advice? I am going to seek some youtube this evening but hopefully you guys have a simple solution....

    helpful info:
    Pentair ic40
    switch closed at 1200rpm and elec consumption: 138

    The IntelliFlo can be set to run 8 different speeds at 8 different times..

    I am not sure what you are doing wrong, but I don't know any tricks other than following the instructions in the manual.

    Basically you can try this... Set up speed 1 for 1200 rpm to run from 6 am until 6 pm...

    Then set up speed 2 for 2200 rpm from 11 am until 1 pm... Since the pump will always use the highest rpm, it will change speeds at 11 am and switch back to 1200 rpm at 1 pm..

    Not sure that will solve your issue, but hope it gets you pointed in the right direction..

    Thanks for posting,

    If your flow switch just closed at 1200, I'd add a 100 rpm, just to make sure it stays closed as your filter gets a little dirty..

    I found that running faster than 1200 does not really help skim my pool any better.. But, each pool is different..
