Greetings!.
Do I need single speed or two speed or VS pump as for dedicated SPA JET.I’ll have minimum 6 jets max 8 jets, no more than that, prrrerably 20-25 GPM on each jet. If not 15-20GPM per jet. Only PENTAIR pump recommendation with Intellicenter automation capability please. Thanks in advance.

Get an IntelliFlo XF pump and you will be able to dial in whatever flow works best for your jets.

Use 3" lines to the jets.

ajw22,
Thank you for your quick reply and recommendation. Right now 21/2" dedicated suction is installed for spa jets. Current construction stage is rebar installation after dig. At what stage I should ask for 3" lines for the jets. As per contract it is 2" right now. I'll ask PB. Suppose if he says it is an upgrade, is it worth to upgrade?. Please let me know.
Thanks

If you want to push 25 gpm for 8 jets you need 3 inch pipe.

You want to keep the water velocity below 6 ft/sec on the suction and below 8 ft/sec on the pressure side of the pump. Make sure your filter can handle that flow rate.
