Arrow Galley hand pump conversion to electric?

The original galley water supply is a hand pump for a 1947 Curtis Wright. It would be nice to keep the original look of the hand pump, and would like to add an electric pump.

Is there a way to convert the hand pump, to supply water on demand via an electric pump?

Thanks,
Cliff

Hello Cliff ,

im sure there could be a way if you made the hand pump capable of passing water through it .Im not sure if thats possible for water to pass thru in a stock configuration .You could remove the inside parts of it and then use
a regular waterpump to flow water thru it as you want to do .i think its a great idea .its fun to pump it at first ,but shortley after that you'll want a fast pump to do it .any new photos you may have to post on your progress?

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"
