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.
I HAVE A INGROUND POOL WITH WATER FOUNTEN DO I NEED A PUMP WITH HIGH PRESSURE PUMP OR HIGH FLOW PUMP
Yes, I would recommend a full rate, high pressure Challenger if you have a water fountain feature on your pool.
Now have a pinnacle PF11-P-3/4 pump which after many years have failed. what would you recommend as a replacement pump ? Was thinking of going to a 1 hp pump
Hi Alan, The Pentair Challenger pump would be a good replacement. The Pentair Challenger 1 HP FR Pump (342234) has a total hp of 1.65 so you want to kane sure that you system can handle a pump this size. I would recommend watching our How To: Size A Pool Pump video to make sure that you get the correct size pump for your pool.
Just replaced my PAC pump and motor with the Pentair Challenger 1 HP, everything looks the same. But wire terminals are labeled different from the old pump. Can you tell me what color wire goes to what terminal?
Hi Gary, We have this guide with Video on How To Wire A Pool Pump which should answer your wiring questions.
