Water pump replacement

My pump appears to be shot (no water, no sound...etc). I suspect it froze over the winter and broke.

I currently have a Flojet Quiet Quad installed, which hardly seemed quiet as it sounded like a jack hammer when on...but it's very quiet now!

Curious what everyone else is using as a replacement Flojet vs. SURflow....and which model?

I just replaced the ancient pump in ours with a Surflow Revolution 3gpm. Works well, not silent by any means, but seems well put together. It seemed to be by far the more popular replacement pump.

Both of our Airstreams have Surflow Whisper King pumps. In installed the one in the Caravel in 2003. The one in the Excella was installed by the previous owner. Both are about eight years old, have had much use, and work just fine.

I use sureflow for the trailer (it was already there when we bought) and both my demand pumps on the carpet cleaning equipment I use. A bit more expensive but easy (for me) to replace parts (couldn't find parts for the flowjets) when needed. I have used flowjets in the past and have two or three of them on a shelf that have failed over the last five years or so. Each time I replaced with a sureflow and no failures...............yet!

A wise man once told me he wanted to stay fit enough to run a marathon on his hundredth birthday. Another said he wanted to be shot by a jealous husband on his, I'm with the latter. God bless you Richard.

Carpet Cleaning is what I do, it's not who I am.
