New Constant Pressure System

May 2, 2011

DELAVAN, WI — May 17, 2010 — Pentair Flow Technologies is pleased to announce the introduction of the PENTEK INTELLIKIT™ constant pressure system for well-water applications. The INTELLIKIT is a bundled system of submersible motor + pump + variable-frequency-drive; conveniently pre-packaged in a contractor-friendly kit. The INTELLIKIT consists of a PENTEK® submersible motor, paired with a Pentair Flow Technologies submersible pump (STA-RITE®, BERKELEY®, AERMOTOR®, or Myers® brand), paired with a PENTEK INTELLIDRIVE variable-frequency-drive. The INTELLIKIT is an ideal solution for homeowners who desire constant water pressure from their well water-systems, while the contactor-friendly kit takes the guesswork out of ordering.


Constant Pressure Benefits


“Homeowners with well-water systems enjoy affordable high-quality water, but inconsistent water pressure is a major drawback of well systems” said Bill Genaw, Vertical Marketing Manager for Pentair. “The PENTEK INTELLIKIT provides all the components necessary to correct this problem by supplying constant water pressure, regardless of fluctuating demand.” According to Genaw, constant pressure systems offer:


  • The performance of a city water system (where multiple water users in the same house experience consistent pressure), but with high-quality, private well water.
  • Extended life of pump and motor due to Soft Start / Coast-to-Stop functionality, which minimizes * mechanical stress on the pumping system.
  • Energy savings by automatically monitoring and adjusting motor speed to meet, but not exceed, water demand.

The PENTEK INTELLIKIT is 3-wire compatible, with 1-phase or 3-phase output – ideal for retrofitting existing well systems. The INTELLIKIT is available through a network of more than 5,000 authorized dealers throughout North America. More information on the PENTEK INTELLIKIT, including where to buy, is available at www.MyersPump.com.
