This features the Intelliflow Pool Pump. Gulf Power will give you a $600 rebate for installing this pump.

Check it out here at this site.

http://www.pentairpool.com/pool-pro/products/product.php?id=77

Once installed, instead of using $1,000 of electricty for a period of time, that same period of run time will now cost $75. This pump uses little power. A different type of motor.

That is what the research I performed reveals.

I bought one from Escambia Electric Motor, and have had it for two weeks.

I will soon be able to validate this information my ownself.

I spent
$1,150 Pump
$ 50 PVC and new valves
Total $1,200.

I installed myself.

$1,200 - $600 = $600.

$1,000 - $75 = $925 savings.

This is a no brainer.

That was written in March 2009, and the failure was due to 8 degree weather.

I have an above ground pool, and I'm always looking for a way to cut costs. However, it is really possible to cut the power consumption this much? I am always up to upgrading for efficiency, but I'm not willing to sacrifice pool cleanliness. Is this applicable to all types of swimming Pools?

Yes it is, and I have had it for 5 years, that is about $4,625.00 saved.

I have/had one. But during that big April flooded it did not get flooded but maybe a power surge? I loved it when it worked though
