    plumbing inlet height for intelliflow pump

    I've found the install manual and there are dimensions, but not the key one I need.

    Trying to see how much difference it is from my current pump.

    Yeah, Pentair has a problem documenting this pump.

    Here's what I found:
    - suction face to midpoint of discharge = 10"
    - floor to midpoint of suction face = 9"
    - floor to discharge face = 11 1/2"
    Good luck.

    Also note that the suction and return fittings are FEMALE pipe threads (FPT). I just switched one out for a friend that had a Sta-Rite pump that had Male pipe threads at the pump.
