It needs too much upkeep
Had this about 18 months, already had to have it serviced and the whole drive replaced. Warranty covered the parts but still had to pay the service / labor. Makes a whining noise still, so not a lot of faith left at this point.

I'm sold
I thought my neighbor was exagerating about the drop in his electric bill but after three months I see its true. This thing will pay for itself

Top of the line
I choose this pump because when I compared the energy star ratings its had one of the top efficiency ratings. After replacing my loud old pump, I wish I would have done this sooner because the biggest impact is on my bill from the electricity company. When I look at the history graph I can see when I swapped out the pumps.

fast delivery
We were going out of town on our son's boyscouts retreat and worried the pool would be green if we did not get the pump in time. Had the pump in two days!

Under-sized it
Replaced a 2hp Super II pump. Installation was less direct than I hoped. Yes, it uses less energy, but that is if you run it at the lowest speed. At that point, my cleaner system, my salt system, and my solar systems start having problems. I eventually figured out how to coordinate all of those things running together and I realized I should've thought about the next model size up.

Designed for Outdoor Installation and Operation

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 IntelliFlo 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.
