The Pentair Whisperflo VS2 is a self priming variable speed circulation pump which can be used as a direct replacement for most single phase pumps upto 1.5HP. Please note some pipe work alteration maybe required.
Pentair have made improvements over the version 1. This variable speed pump is ideally sized for most standard pools. After extensive testing Pentair has replaced the permenant magnet pump with a much larger motor that far exceed the current IE3 "Premium efficiency" class. The controller features its own graphical control panel for easy programing of up to 12 different speeds. An added bonus is the unit now remembers its setting after power failure.
This is achieved by running the pumps longer at reduced speeds. Your pool water can still turnover the required amount so you will not suffer any water quality issues, in fact during testing Pentair reported better water quality with less chemical use. Due to the fact more debris is caught by the filter at lower speeds.
The reduction in your electricity bill will soon mount up, and the actual purchase cost of the pump can be recovered in under two years and in some just 1 year!
The flexibility of The Sta-Rite S5P2R-VS is enhanced further when connected to the Pentair Control Pro System. A clever control system that can connect and control automatic back washing, Heating systems (including Solar Thermal), Dosing Systems, Anti Freeze Protection and suction cleaning devices. Pool professionals can also utilise the additional inputs to control any of the main preset speeds.
