Pentair Superflo vs 342000 Review


It runs silently (even at 1400 rpm) but does make some noise when at full speed. However, I use mine a little above halfway and it circles my pool once a day in 12 hours. I always recommend a flowmeter and I had one installed in it inline on the supply line feeding the pump.

Programming was simple as ABC, and I use a booster pump for the floor vacuum, so I typically run this on a low speed for all 3 settings for half a day.

But now to the warranty. Pentair only guarantees a 60-day warranty, unless you use a “qualified installer” meaning an electrician or a pool company. Anyways, installation is pretty easy so you only need to have a brain, some DIY skills and that’s all!

PVC plumbing is simple and instructions is really clear. Plus, the wiring is really simple – three wires, three screws. I bought a SquareTrade Warranty through Amazon to cover any issues for 3 years.

I did initial power calculations, and my old pump was drawing 7.75 amps @220V, so around 1700W for about 8-9 hours a day. The chlorine generator ran at 100% and could just keep up in the summer months. With this pump, I run 1800rpm @350W (it tells you right on the display), so I save about $1 a day by running this pump.
