Hi Cliff; There are some problems associated with it. First of all, yes you could remove diaphragm from your pump and install new Jabsco Sensor Max VSD pump,available in 3.5 and 4.5 gal/min. This pump is silent and it senses the needed volume. The problem is that you would want to operate other water spigots as well so there is no way to do it unless you have some sort of valve in your hand pump spigot. Sorry Cliff but that is that, unless you figure how to install a valve in that line. Thanks, "Boatdoc"
