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.
Now that this pump is discontinued, what is the appropriate replacement pump model?
Thank you for contacting Inyo Pools, This would be a good selection to replace your existing Pump. Hayward TriStar 2 HP, Max Rated Pump - W3SP3215X20 Currently showing we only have one in stock
I have a Pentair Challenger 2 pump CHII-N1-2A with a 2hp Century Centurion 1.1 SF 230v single speed motor (PN 0-177897-22).
I want to replace the power hog single speed with a variable speed, and thinking the AO Smith Century VGreen 165 Square Flange Variable Speed Pool Motor 1.65HP 230V or equivalent would work, but wanted to make sure I didn't need to also swap the impeller.
I intend to replace the seals (impeller, pump split, etc).
Thanks for the response I intentionally want to downrate the pump and run it longer/lower speed It seems the ecm16squ is a lower cost alternative with the same bolt pattern and shaft diameter With the 27 at around $600 and the 16 at $400, it seemed like a consideration worth delving into even if a $50 impeller was needed to attain necessary water flow
Do you have a pentair pump (346201) that is just the pump and not the skimmer basket? I don't see it on your site.
Mike, Unfortunately, they only sell the challenger model 346201 Pentair Challenger 2 HP 115/230V Single Speed, UR Pump with the front strainer as a complete pump. Otherwise you would have to buy the parts one by one, which you can see on this parts diagram.
