water pump

Can anyone suggest a vendor to order an Aquajet ES pump from? I've had no luck w/ local stores. Any yea or nay opinions on this pump vs the original would be welcome also. The goal is to lower the noise and the amp useage. Many thanks. Brian

Hi nwclassic,

I'v recently converted to a FloJet VSD pump that controlls pressure internally. Draws a max of 8 amps at 3.7 gpm and is virtually silent. Pressure is maintained electronically and does not require a storage tank of any sort. A huge change from the PAR diaphram pump originally installed. This pump can be found at CW and any of the big boating supply houses. NOT cheap but works very well.

Take care,

Old trucks and old trailers . . . a comfortable combination!

The Aquajet pumps seem to be available only through the distributors that serve RV dealers. Here are two websites that offer them:

I know nothing of either company, but the pump is around $145 either way. I found mine through another distributor whose name escapes me, but the price was about the same.

I went with the Auquajet ES as it has a lower maximum amp draw than any other variable speed pump, and was not therefore likely to overload the existing wiring. It works very well, easily supplying two faucets or the shower and a faucet with almost no noticable change in flow.

The one problem that showed up was rather a lot of water hammer from plumbing which was in contact with panels or the floor. The old Sureflo had such low pressure that it never caused this. I have had to wrap rather a lot of the plumbing in insulating foam to keep it quiet.

Thanks for the info, BUFF and Mark. Glad to hear that they in fact do as advertised. The quiet will be a nice change.
