Product Description

Inyo Recommended Pumps

Challenger® High Flow pumps are designed to deliver increased flow rates needed in more demanding applications. And they deliver extra pumping power while minimizing energy use. 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.

How many GPMs does this pump push

A  Answered on 8/25/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, You would first have to calculate how much feet of head you have. You can use our How to Size a Pool Pump for Your In-Ground Pool guide step 7 to calculate the feet of head of your pool. Then use the Pentair High Flow Performance Curve Chart to find out the GPM of this pump to the feet of head of your pool.

what is the difference between a UR pump and a FR pump?

A  Answered on 2/26/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

The difference between an Uprated (UR) and Fullrated (FR) pump is the total horsepower of the pump. For example if you look at a 343240 2 hp UR pump vs a 342238 2 hp FR pump, although they are both 2hp the uprated 343240 has a Service factor (SF) of 1.1 so its total horsepower (THP) is 2.2 HP whereas the FR pump would have a Service Factor (SF) of 1.3 so its total horsepower (THP) is 2.6hp. In short, a FR pump has a higher THP than a UR pump.
