Max-E-ProXF® Variable Speed Pool Pump

A Variable Speed Pool Pump for Commercial Pools

The Max-E-ProXF VS Commercial Pump is the first five-horsepower variable speed pool pump that runs on single-phase or three-phase power. It’s an economical, combined motor/drive solution for both HMAC (hotel, motel, apartment, condominium) or large residential installations. TheMax-E-ProXF VS Commercial Pump provides sophisticated, energy-saving pump technology without the high costs typically associated with independent pump/external drive setups.

  • Integrated 5HP motor/drive; no expensive external drive required.
  • Versatile power input capability; runs off a wide range of single- or three-phase power.
  • Speed or flow control for maximum efficiency and pool performance*.
  • External control capability through automation systems or relays.
  • Intuitive programming and operation. 
  • Meets commercial codes and agency requirements.
  • 2 year warranty
  • WEF: 5.0 THP: 5.0

Pumps and replacement motors that are single speed and one (1) Total HP or greater cannot be sold, offered for sale, or installed in a residential pool for filtration use in California, Title 20 CCR sections 1601-1609.

* When connected to Pentair’s inline 4-20mA flowmeter for 3” plumbing (P/N 97014-4203KIT– sold separately), or similar 4-20mA flowmeters, this pump is capable of maintaining a constant flow based on the needs of your pool system. To connect the flowmeter and pump, the digital input cable provided in the External Control Wiring Kit (P/N 353129Z– sold separately) is required.

Why Slower is Better

What's the secret to minimizing pump energy costs? Operate at the lowest speed needed to accomplish a job. It takes far less energy to move water slowly than quickly. Why? Because there’s lower resistance in the filter, accessories and plumbing system. Even with only modest pump speed reductions, the effect on electricity usage can be dramatic. In fact, reducing pump motorspeed by 25% actually reduces the power needed by 58% of what’s consumed at the higher speed.
