I just purchased a 1hp motor with you along with a 355074 impeller. It looks that the pump was pieced together to work. I have a 355029 diffuser and the impeller will not fit in it, with that said I looked online and the same diffuser doesn't look the same. What part number do I need with this impeller?
I have a 1.5 hp challenger pump. Looking to reduce pressure by putting a smaller impeller what do you recommend
Hello, If you want to decrease pressure, you will also need to downgrade the motor as well.

We purchased a new home in February. While getting the pool ready for spring I disassembled the pump and motor because it was making an awful grinding buzzing sound. I found that the diffuser had broken in two pieces causing the rattling. This replacement diffuser was not an exact match to what I had but thankfully the diffuser plate matched to screw holes and the new diffuser mounted correctly. This unit works great and I have no complaints.

Removed pump assemble from system. removed end of pump to hold shaft while removing broken impeller from shaft by turning clockwise. Cleaned spring seals behind impeller, reinstalled seal & new impeller. Reinstalled screw (counter clockwise) to secure impeller to shaft. Reinstalled pump to system, primed, restarted pump & checked for any leaks. Sound & performance was correct.

Pros: Perfect fit
Cons: Over priced
I had gone to over two other pool stores to find this broken part. If the person working the counter understood pool parts it would have been better. However, It seemed that no one could help since no name could be found. INYO pools was able to find the exact part for me and was able to get it to me in a short amount of time without the extra expense of over night shipping. Their two day got it to me at about the same as overnight. Thank you again INYO for having knowledgeable staff.
