Question about Pentair 2 hp Challenger Pump

1 Answer

Hi, I have this Challenger 2HP pump out on the bench but can not separate the pump housing and impeller from the motor. I've removed the 3/8 bolt from the center of the impeller. And the band is off the pump housing.

Take a look at this picture:
http://www.poolcenter.com/parts_pumps_pacfab_challenger_highflow.htm
Make sure you remove the mounting screws item 15 (2 ea) and item 9 (4 ea)
There are also 3 screws 120 deg apart item 12. Screw holes can be seen on item 2.

The impeller has a Locking screw item 10 that if it is not removed makes it impossible to remove the impeller.

Need to replace old pump.


easy both of them are junk. get a (sta-rite max e click on it) a 1.5 hp should do just fine. the 2hp is to run your spa and not economical to do unless you you have two pumps one for the pool and one for the spa.. if you have a 2 story house with solar you will need a 2hp
used pumps can be tricky so search for your local pool pump repair guy and see if he could build you one, this will save you money and be handy if you need repairs in the future ! ask him how to take care of your pump !

I have a Pentair 2.0 pump that I am trying to remove from the impellar. The shaft turns allowing me to turn the pump part itself but I can not pull it loose from the rest of the housing. How exactly do I...


The impeller is threaded onto the motor shaft. On 2hp motors and above, there is usually a screw with reverse threads to help secure impeller to shaft. To remove impeller, first remove screw(reverse threads) Next, remove back cover off motor. The shaft either has a slot for a screwdriver or flats for a wrench. Hold shaft and unscrew impeller.

Replace pool motor


First you'll need to take the outer 6 bolts off the pump housing and that will allow you to remove the impeller and impeller housing with the motor. Then you can remove all the impeller parts and get to the bolts that hold your motor to the housing....
When you get the impeller and the housing free, check to see if your motor will turn... alot of times the motors get jammed because the pump sucks debris and jams in the impeller.... you may be able to still use your motor...worth a try...

Pump disassembly


I removed the impeller on my DW761UQB. The instructions were molded into the plastic pump housing. This is how I DID MINE: Remove motor mount screws. Remove the chopper screw (screw only goes into impeller, not motor shaft). Remove chopper and rotate/remove strainer. Place socket or wrench on impeller tip and place another wrench on rear of motor's plastic fan. Unscrew fan from impeller shaft ( threads are LEFT handed, turn CW). Once fan is 'backed off' of the impeller, CAREFULLY pry the motor/fan from pump housing (impeller is attached to motor shaft via splines). Don't crack the delicate plastic pump housing. Mine was stuck, but separated with moderate force. Now remove the impeller/seals from the pump housing. This worked for MY above mentioned model, I don't know what other models it applies to. I am not a pro.
