Question about Pentair IntelliFlo VS-3050 & VS+SVRS Variable Speed Pump -

1 Answer

My Intelliflow VS SVRS computer needs to be reset. The LCD screen went a little crazy, so I pulled the breaker for about 5 min. Now the LCD screen reads properly, but It is no longer accepting my password to access any of the functions. Is there a default password it resets to? And if that doesn't work, how do I perform a soft/hard reset to the computer? None of this seems to be covered in the owners manual. Thank you in advance for your help!

You need to remove the controller from the motor. their are four screws that hold the drive to the motor - remove those and lift off the cotroller, unplug the controller and plug it back in. this should fix it for you.

I have a intelliflow vs pump and im having a hard time priming. my pump ramps up and trys to prime but there is occasional air in the line. it looks as if its not coming from the suction lines cause i dont...

check the suction side fitting, reset the threads and check or replace the lid o-ring. If there is not air showing in the check valve, it's more likely to be a suction side fitting leak. also be sure to check the impeller for debris.

The pump keeps trying to prime. There is no air in the lines. all the valves are open. filter basket is clean. we've tried hitting the reset button, changing the prime time from 1min. to 5 min....

Most of the time you are sawing air from thpumo lid. Hav you lubricated the o-ring in the lid? If that doesn't work, keep working your way forward and lubricate the 3 way valves as well.

Intelliflow pump shuts off consistently when I connect my Barracuda cleaner, at all pump speeds. Might run for five or ten minutes tops.

The Intelliflo SVRS will do this everytime. The SVRS part of the model indicates that it has a Safety Vacuum Release System integrated into the pump. This means that whenever the pump senses a change in the vacuum pressure (when you connect your barracuda this happens) the SVRS kicks in and shuts the pump down.
If you want to avoid this, you either need to disable the SVRS in the intelliflo menu, Or simply push the "quick clean" button and it will run constantly with no SVRS for 1 hour.
Below is the link for the manual on this pump, this will tell you how to disable the SVRS function if the 1 hour quick clean is not sufficient time to clean your pool

The motor will not come on everyday like it is suppose to. You can cut the breaker off and turn in on again and hit start and it will work fine until the next day. Control panel was replaced about six...

To protect the IntelliFlo pump electronics from damage due to freezing conditions, the pump will switch itself on to generate internal heat when the air temperature drops below 40° F. This feature is not intended to protect the system plumbing from freezing. The pump will run at a lower speed than what you have it set, unless you have programmed the adjustment.
The Intelliflow pumps are great pumps, but come at a disadvantage- A whole lot of electronics.; Since the intelliflow pumps are fairly newer in the market, and you have already had the electronics replaced recently, so I am going to presume that you still are under Pentair Manufacturer warranty.
The issue you are describing remains a problem with the electronics. Since you are not getting any alarm codes, there may be in issue in the wiring or you may have a defective pump. Before calling into the manufacture, lets reset the pump to factory defaults:
The IntelliFlo VS-3050 pump can be reset to the factory default settings. All previously adjusted pump speeds that were saved will be erased. To reset the pump to the factory default settings: 1. Ensure that the pump is powered on and the green power LED is on. 2. Press the Stop button to stop the pump. 3. Press and hold all of the four Speed buttons simultaneously for four seconds. Power off the drive and reenergize. The default settings will be in effect.
If this solves your issues, then you can program the pump to operate at the desired time/speeds.
If you are still having issues, I recommend contacting Pentair Warranty at 800-831-7133. Be sure to have the date of install, the Serial and Model numbers handy when you call.

We lost our password for our Pentair IntelliFlo VS SVRS pump, part No. 011017. Our serial No. is 03321380901156. Please help us retrieve our password. Thank you.

On the normal vs-3050, you need to reset the whole unit. You do this by holding all 4 speed buttons for 30 seconds. After thi, shut off the power at the breaker. let sit for 2 minutes. Restore power and all setting are reset. I cant find any information about the SVRS model, but it should work the same way.
