Best water pump?

We are ready to buy a new water pump for our overlander. It has been gutted and we are redoing all electricity so it can have larger amp. What is the best quietest pump?

Not sure what the "best" is, but mine is a Water King Sure Flow. It's been going for at least 15 years and is pretty quiet. I know Little Giant also makes a nice one.

Shurflow and Flo Jet both make good pumps.

My "regular" Shurflow pump was making some funny noises, so I replaced it with an "upgraded" Shurflow "revolution" pump. The pump noise is now normal, but also quieter. I will let you know in 5 years how reliable it is. I do a lot of boondocking, so it gets used a lot. I got the "revolution" pump from PPL for under $70. Easy peasy, same mounting holes as the old pump. The specs are 3 gpm @ 7.5 amps.
