Q: Is there a separate priming speed/time setting on the pump or do you have to sacrifice SPEED 1 to use for pump priming? The manual is not very clear on this.

Asked by: Alak - 2/12/2022
A: The pump has 4 programmable schedule modes plus a programmable "quick clean" manual mode. Each programmable modes can have its duration and RPMs customized and fine-tuned if desired. However, its presets work for many people. The Speed 1 preset is 3000 RPMs for 2 hours, which helps ensure that you successfully prime the pump every time and get a little bit of the high-flow circulation that any pool needs. You can its presets under "Using the Default Schedule" in the manual.

Q: Is this filter adequate for a pool of 30000gallons and is it for above ground pool?

Asked by: Jo - 2/12/2022
A: This variable speed pump can be used with both inground and permanently-installed above ground pools. Depending on your pool's needs, a 30k pool is probably the top end of its range to get its full benefits - you may want to consider the next size up (2.0 THP).

Q: I see it is drop-in replacement for IntelliFlo and WhisperFlo, what about SuperFlo? I have a single-speed SuperFlo 340038.

Asked by: Dan - 2/12/2022
A: Good question. The SuperFlo is physically a slightly smaller pump, so it would likely just take some minor plumbing to install this pump.

Q: Can you check my purchase & determines which Chlorine Generator I have?? I need to know if it has a flow meter. Am considering installing a Variable Speed Pump.

Asked by: Barney - 2/12/2022
A: Based on your email address, it appears you have the RJ-Classic chlorine generator. That model does not utilize a "flow switch" - you would simply need to have it on a timer that coordinates its run time with your pump's programmed times for water flow.
