Many people who own a pool have no idea what it takes to properly maintain it, and few people are willing to learn. Why? Usually it’s because they think pool maintenance is harder than it is, and so they’re turned off from the start. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and if you let Shasta Pools and Spas guide you, it’s only a matter of time before you can better understand how your pool works and what it needs.

What Does a Pool Pump Do?

The key to keeping your pool clean is a strong working pump. These function by cycling water through your pool on a continuous loop, thereby preventing stagnant water and the associated bacterial and other harmful effects that go with it. If you have a good pump, your pool is on the right track.


Who is Pentair?

At Shasta, we promote the use of Pentair products for your pool. With decades of experience under their belt, Pentair has continually revolutionized the industry with innovative, high-performance products ranging from pool pumps to filters, cleaners, automation systems and much more.

Pentair pool pumps are specifically some of the best you’ll find. Technologically advanced and energy-efficient, these pumps are among the global leaders, and are used by millions of pool and spa owners all around the world.


What is the Pentair IntelliFlo Series?

Few products have had such an impact on the market as Pentair’s IntelliFlo variable speed pumps, which have some of the longest service lives out there and can run almost silently. Built with energy efficiency in mind, these pumps also combine variable drive technology with permanent magnet motors (much like the ones used in hybrid cars) to drive down energy costs by up to 90 percent.


What Other Pentair Options Can I Get Through Shasta?

For added savings and high performance output, Shasta also offers Pentair IntelliFloXF and IntelliFlo i1 variable speed pumps. Both of these additional options are made to save you even more on your next energy bill.

The IntelliFloXF can specifically save the average homeowner up to $1600 a year on utilities, while the IntelliFlo i1 is a smart hydraulic-based design built to run in geographic areas where flow rate regulations might be a little different than on-average.


What’s the Next Step?

Just being aware of good pool pumps is only a part of the battle, however. There are many other factors, such as the size of your pool, that will determine the best model for you. Then there are the practical considerations of maintenance, ease of use, etc. that can sway you one way or the other.

It’s also important to note that the above are the options that Shasta Pools and Spas finds best suited for the average pool owner. Ultimately, if you’re interested in other brands and models or if you just want to learn more about pool pump installation and proper maintenance in general, you should contact our office and talk to one of our representatives directly.

We look forward to hearing from you!
