Product Description

Inyo Recommended Pumps

Challenger® high pressure pumps are designed specifically for applications requiring higher pressure operation to feed multiple needs beyond pool water circulation. These needs include spa jets, in-floor cleaning systems, as well as decorative water features like waterfalls and fountains. Plus, they provide effective power while remaining highly efficient and delivering years of unattended performance. Challenger pumps come equipped with rugged fiberglass reinforced housing that features closed impellers and durable, custom-molded thermoplastic components that stand up to high pressure operation year after year. Beyond efficiency, the top criteria for your pump should be long, trouble-free life and easy service. Challenger® high pressure pumps perform year after year because of superior design and the most rugged construction. Service-friendly features make routine maintenance a snap.

?     Asked on 6/21/2019 by Chris

Would the CHII-N1-1F or -1FE be a plug and play replacement for the pump I currently have (see photos)? If not, could you tell me which model is? Also, I'm curious about the WhisperFlo, but there are slight plumbing dimensional differences between it and what I have. Would WFE-4 would be the WhisperFlo match for my current pump if I wanted to go that route? And is there enough play in most plumbing to allow for the slight dimensional differences? Thanks!
