Yeah, I guess I should try that. It just ticks me off when a company has a customer service email address and they don't even take to trouble to respond - even if only to say they can't help!
My Aquajet was always very noisy. The new Shurflo is much much quieter. Of course that could be because the Aquajet was piped directly into rigid pex [iping on the inlet side. When I installed the Sureflo and had to change fittings, I put a length of flex hose on both outlet and inlet sides. That could have made all the difference maybe
The Aquajet was rated at 3.5 and the Shurflo only at 3.0, but my impression is that not only is it quieter but it seems to put out more volume.
You've got me wondering if my Surflo is variable speed, I doubt it as it onlt cost me about $130 I think. I'll check the papers that came with it.
The problem with my Aquajet turned out to be a seized front bearing. I was able to free it up, but in removing the silicon rubber piston assembly thingy from the wobble plate, a couple of the little rubber "studs" that go into holes in the plate just broke off instead of pulling free. That is the main thing I need. If I could find a source though, I'd likely put a new motor bearing in as well.
