The Best: Intelliflo 011056 above and Intellipro 013004 3 HP below with 3 year warranty. The black Intellipro is easier to clean the impeller vanes (if you get debris able to slide thru skimmer basket) and comes with built in unions (the threaded connections on white Intelliflo can be a source of leaks) BUT the Intelliflo is more efficient (10 GPM more at given speeds) ALSO VERY IMPORTANT: the particular models 011056/013004 can be set for specific flow rates!
The two pumps above also have control interface that can be mounted up to 20 feet away from pump via a cable.
I did a quick check on prices at above link (6-10-18) and found two pentair variable speed pumps below price I pay my distributor and two Hayward pumps a little above price I pay.
However some warranties (extended 3 year) on some pumps only apply to non internet purchases but sometimes the manufacturers MAY honor warranty if the installer is on good terms with manufacturer (rewards member,warranty station,etc)
The Pentair 342001 above can work on 115 or 230 voltage and is capable of pumping out 30 GPM more than pump below but the Hayward Maxpro SP23510VSP or SP23520VSP below is more efficient and has a longer warranty and the ability to install keypad control remotely for about 5-30 bucks more (depending on voltage)
The pump below has a slightly higher flow rate than the Superflo above but has the warranty and efficiency of the Maxflo and can be installed for less than either of the above. I do not think the software and controls are as good as the Superflo or Maxflo but the flow rate,efficiency,warranty, and price make it an attractive option
The Hayward Tristar 1.5 HP is perfect for commercial or multi-family dwelling units in Los Angeles County because the Los Angeles Health Dept. will not allow the 3 HP capable pumps UNLESS plumbing diamter is 2.5" or more AND commercial pools still qualify for 500.00 LADWP rebate and 1000.00 rebate in Ventura County (SCE)!!
Hayward is offering a "mini controller" you can use with your home wifi via computer,smartphone,or a stand alone controller that comes with a variable speed pump as shown below...the control would allow you to turn on your spa via smartphone so it is hot and ready when you get home from a hard days work.This system is approximately 1/2 the cost of a traditional control system and will control 4 pieces of equipment and turn the valves automatically for spa. All equipment except valve acuators come with unprecedented 3 year warranty and the top of line Tristar pump has 4 year warranty. The price installed is between 2300.00 and 3000.00 depending on model of pump and options and of course you get 1000.00 rebate on top of that
One nice thing about the pumps above and below: you can install the control remotely with cable.The control below is to a Jandy Pump.The Pentair Intelliflo now comes with this feature
I would like to add that you SHOULD also invest in an efficient weir flap and directional returns to improve flow and turnover AND you SHOULD make sure pump is connected to GFIC breaker. (New Code) for additional cost.
You do not have to do these things for rebate but they are advisable for safety and energy savings
Also I can install a flowmeter as shown below to so you can be sure of turnover rate:
