These fiberglass reinforced pumps feature closed impellers and durable custom-molded thermoplastic components to meet the toughest operating conditions and keep on going. Thanks to a proprietary hydraulic design that’s been refined for over 40 years, the Pentair Challenger pump delivers superior performance using smaller horsepower motors that cost far less to run. For challenging applications where high flow rates are required, Challenger has set the industry standard for quiet, rugged reliability. Beyond efficiency, the top criteria for your pump should be long, trouble-free life and easy service which, Challenger pumps can give you year after year.
If I am replacing my pump motor, should I necessarily replace the pump part? These came with the house when I bought it in 1993 and I have replaced the motor once already. It is getting louder and I think it is bearing noise but the pump still works. Also, can you replace just the pump without the motor later on?
Hi Tom, you don't need to replace the pump housing. However, the pump portion is sold in individual parts so if you are seeing wear on the pump housing then it is definitely a better value to purchase the complete pump, instead of purchasing the motor and then buying the pump parts later on.
can i buy just the pump and not the motor and what would be the price or if you have another pump you would suggest i have a inground pool 30.0000 gallons

After reading your "HOW TO" pump tutorials I decided the current pump I have had for years and was screaming was on its last leg. My pool had never been crystal clear from the beginning. With your guidelines I downsized on your recommendations and glad I did. I was way over pumped before. I received my pump right on time and it was an easy installation even for me with no experience. The pump matches my filter size and pool perfectly and what a difference it made. Runs relatively quite and is doing a far far better job than my original pump that the local pool place had installed years ago. My pool has never looked so good. I will be sticking with INYOPOOLS from now on for all my pool needs. Good bye local pool store, you have strung me along long enough.
