Rio pump question

I was wondering if i can put a rio 2500 impeller into a rio 1700. I just need more flow in my tank without having to spend $65 for the whole pump when I can just get the impeller and put in my existing pump. Has anyone tried this before?

Haven't tried it, but I have bought 2 different mag 9.5 pumps for less than $25 each pre-owned.

I'm not a fan of the Rio pumps, as I have a Rio 2100 as a backup.

Just a thought, but you can look around for a pre-owned mag 7 maybe.

I've been looking around. Just haven't found any my area. I actually like my rio. It's been going strong for me now for 4yrs. with no problems. I'll just keep searching for now.
