Excellent, quiet
I bought this pump about 3 months ago and it works great! Controls are easy to use, had a plumber install it in an hour. I also like the fact that it is Made in the USA!

Great! I did a lot of research before I chose this, and it was the only one I could find that would also control my saltwater chlorine generator. Had problems in the past with synchronizing the generator with the old variable pump, but this finally gave me the right solution.

Nice and Quiet
I installed this pump a month ago and so far, I'm pretty impressed. Its much quiter than the one I had before (old 1 speed superjunkII) Seems to give more flow even at slow speeds. I'll update when electric bill comes but I have great expectations!

Awe sum pump
We bought this pump to go with our system and it works great. It is light weight, very easy to operate. It was easy to plumb into our system. The unit being a variable speed has really saved us a lot of money. Also it is a very quiet and very powerful pump. I would defiantly recommend this unit for yo Our Saltwater System.

Q: What is the difference between the VJ-2 and VJ-3 pumps?

Asked by: Terrence - 4/19/2017
A: The VJ-3 is 2.7 THP compared to the VJ-2 at 1.5 THP, so it can more circulate the pool water with even greater efficiency and also hand larger pools. The VJ-3 is also variable speed, so when you program the times for it to run you can also fully control the RPM's in 5% increments for complete customization. The VJ-2 is a two-speed pump, so instead when you program the times for it to run, you can choose the low or high setting.

The VJ-3 also has the ability to control your saltwater chlorinator, which is a plus.

Q: Would this pump work on a fresh water pool in ground?

Asked by: Raymond - 9/10/2018
A: Yes, this pump can work on a traditional pool even if you are not already using a saltwater chlorinator. Even better, we offer package pricing on pumps and saltwater chlorinators so you could convert your pool to salt at the same time and enjoy all of the benefits of modern pool care along with the energy savings from the variable speed pump.

Traditional pumps operate at set, unchangeable speeds. Those speeds are almost always higher than required. As a result, they overpower the jobs they’re assigned to do, which wastes energy. The EnduraFlo pump allows custom programming of optimum pump speeds for specific tasks such as filtering, heating, cleaning, spa jets and waterfalls. For virtually all applications, the optimum speed is lower than the preset, unchangeable speeds of older pumps. When water moves more slowly for longer periods, it helps reduce the occurrence of algae that forms more easily when water is pumped briskly and then allowed to rest for long intervals. Your filter works more effectively because it has more time to sift out particles from the water, and because particles aren’t forced through the filter media under needlessly high pressure. Automatic chemical dispensers and chlorinators also work better when water is kept moving.
