Response to I'm replacing a motor on a Pentair Challenger pool pump. Original is a 3/4 hp 1.67 SF. Will a replacement with a 3/4 hp 1.65 SF be adequate? Seems like the .02 less on the SF is insignificant. Am I correct in my assumption and okay with purchasing motor at 1.65 SF? The pump is used solely to pump water to a water feature that is at a level above the pump, so adequate power is essential. Thank you!
