Additional features of the AquaJet

The AquaJet was factory installed in my Bambi LS, so I don't have a comparison, but I can tell you that is very quiet. That does not mean it is silent. There is a mild purr when it is running, but even sitting on the sofa, with the pump directly underneath (in the armrest), it is quiet enough for a whisper conversation. The AquaJet has a couple of features beyond the Sureflo. It operates on a constant pressure, which means that with fewer faucets open the pump runs at a lower speed while maintaining constant pressure. This means fewer amps consumed and quieter operation. I have found that the AquqJet pumping capacity allows even ALL faucets (galley, lav, shower and toilet to be opened (hot and cold) and there is NO drop in pressure. We have never experienced any scalding or chilling showers due to another faucet being opened while on internal fresh water. The AquaJet is also a 5 chamber design which provides a NON-pulsating pumping action...the water flow from the AquaJet is the same smooth flow as when connected to external water.

The last neat feature of the AquaJet is that you can turn it on while connected to city water and if the city pressure is low due to either poor pressure of restricted volume capability, the AquaJet will kick on and draw water from the fresh water tank to suppliment the pressure from the outside, city hookup. If the city pressure is adequate, the AquaJet does NOT run. I have used this feature several time and it is really nice when trying to shower during low pressure times at RV parks such as when EVERYONE is trying to use water. Of course, this does use water from the fresh tank and therefore you have to refill the tank periodically.

Given that the AquaJet is around $150, it is not a bank acct breaker, so I would go with the AquaJet.
